My Melancholy Blues Lyrics

Another party's over
And I'm left cold sober
My baby left me for somebody new
I don't wanna talk about it
Want to forget about it
Wanna be intoxicated with that special brew
So come and get me
Let me
Get in that sinking feeling
That says my heart is on an all time low - So
Don't expect me
To behave perfectly
And wear that sunny smile
My guess is I'm in for a cloudy and overcast
Don't try and stop me
'Cos I'm heading for that stormy weather soon

I'm causing a mild sensation
With this new occupation
I'm permanently glued
To this extraordinary mood so now move over
Let me take over
With my melancholy blues

I'm causing a mild sensation
With this new occupation
I'm in the news
I'm just getting used to my new exposure
So come into my enclosure
And meet my
Melancholy blues

Very great Freddie composition. I really can picture Freddie behind a piano in an abanodoned bar, with all the seats on the tables and only a spot aimed on Freddie singin this song. The meaning of the song is very obvious and would fit my videoclip idea. A sad song song about someone who has been dumped by his partner and finally finds something to be positive about. i think :)

This song is essentially about Freddie’s fame and the fact that although he appears to be happy, this new celebrity is not enough for him because his relationships are unfulfilling. It could also concern his sexuality because at that time he was struggling to convince people he was straight, and that couldn’t have made him happy, but that’s just a thought. He starts off saying how his lover has left him again. He carries on saying how he’s going to drown his sorrows (he had a growing drug habit at this time also) etc and then avows his true feelings “So don’t expect me to behave perfectly and wear that sunny smile”. As we know Freddie was never one to discuss his private life and often wore this ‘sunny smile’ in order to conceal his true feelings from the ever intrusive public, in this line he is just admitting that. Then he carries on explaining that he doesn’t know how to handle his newfound fame “I’m causing a mild sensation with this new occupation. I’m permanently glued to this extraordinary mood”. I.e. he’s not happy. Then he concludes saying that he’s only adjusting to his new celebrity and is not happy although it may seem otherwise. He invites us into his mind to show us his true feelings which are different to what we would presume- “I’m in the news I’m just getting used to my new exposure, so come into my enclosure and meet my melancholy blues”. This is one of my favourite songs; the piano is amazing, it’s a Freddie classic.
