Is it the music that you dont like? Or the lyrics? or both even?

Too repetitive IMO.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Not my favorite, but it's great as part of the album. I don't mind the track "alone", but I would never remove it from "Innuendo".

I like Delilah. I think many people think it's annoying because of all the "meows" and the corny lyrics. But you gotta have fun once in a while, right?

drum machine...honestly...this song does not compare well to anything Roger Taylor actually plays on-- no, I don't like "Party" either. Some bands do well with drum machines, Queen has a few songs where it's cool in small amounts, "Under Pressure" for example. But for a band with a drummer as accomplished and skilled as Roger, a drum machine seems like a lack of effort. Sure I respect putting 'Delilah' on the album to support Freddie, but to me it's just a track better off as a rare b-side.


and ya cant stop rockin

What's wrong with Delilah?... Well..

She lives in New York City..
That's a thousand miles away...
But tonight she looks so pretty...

Wrong Delilah.;P

I love Delilah! Mainly because I love cats. And I love Freddie Mercury. So what's not to love?

The only reason why Delilah made into 'Innuendo' is because you can't say "NO" to a person who has a foot on the grave.

It's sad but it's true.

Sure, but it's true.

I'm sure they made many compromises for Freddie's sake. They wanted to create as much music as they could while Freddie was still alive - not argue about it!

Only good thing on this song is Brian's "Meow".
The rest sucks, especially musically
