.46 to about .55 is when you first hear it.

Not a big deal I just thought it sounded similar to a bass line in a certain Queen song we all know and (possibly) love.

The most obvious example is, of course, his Crazy little thing called love from the 2000's, that fat old bastard!

after however many millions of soungs recorded,
there must be loads of ,riffs, that are simillar to or exactly like another song.
the list could be endless,even down to having heard a song 1 time.23/30/40.years ago.
and in the dark reaches of the composers mind inadvertintally including a line or a riff in his new song.

Whenever I think of a little melody that sounds really catchy and awesome to me, I search frantically to make sure I'm not accidentally stealing it from someone else. If I can't find anything, I feel like a genius. I have a few little tunes like that I, as far as I know, are completely made up by me. They're constantly stuck in my head.

They've flown in the swiftness of time.

Come on, I know there's a million riffs similar, and I wasn't accusing any one of anything.
I just thought it was kind of neat, as Freddie is credited to coming up with the bass line, and he was an avid Elvis fan.

Shesh.

How did this forum ever function without you telling people what to do?

Just kidding man, but really there's nothing we can do: newbies will ask basic questions, perverts get off with Freddie's sex life (HOW GAY WAS HE?, TELL ME NOW!) and -last but not least- TROLLS WILL TROLL.

It's basic music theory. Not a big deal.
