I have been a Queen fan for quite some tim now, but I have just realised what a real, true masterpiece White Man is...the music, Brian's lyrics (especially), Freddie's voice, Rog's drumming... it's AMAZING!!!

I know lots of Queen fans do not like this song but I cannot understand why!


Queen are the best band, and they're still underrated!

Indeed, a great track. The whole ADATR overall is great, no tracks on there which I don't like.

In my personal TOP3 best tracks ever recorded by Queen... Only Stone Cold Crazy was better IMO...

White Man is a great song by Brian, but I think his best work EVER with Queen was The Prophets Song. Miles better than Bo Rhap. Near the end of the song, I always get goosebumps cos of Rogers screeming in the background!

I absolutely agree, Leah:)) Adore ADATR. And yes, The Prophet's Song is fab, of course. But IMO Hammer To Fall is the best song written by Brian. I know The Prophet's Song is much more complicated etc, but Hammer is my fave:)) I could listen to it all the time, non stop, and never get enough of it.

White Man is great. Good underrated use of the famous delay effect! I just love the sound of the snowstorm :-)

'White Man' certainly is one of those freakish songs that creeps up on you when you least expect it. I fast-forwarded it for years until I realised the error of my ways. Same with 'Drowse'.
Further proof that 'A Day At The Races' is the finest Queen album.

Very strange how that seems a common veshch, to skip it like that and then end up loving it. I'm still in the skipping phase I'm afraid, horrorshow not literally.. but I still find it too heavy and razdraz for some reason.. real dobby lyrics/message but it's the only odin I don't really enjoy (yet) on that which sloochats to be my favourite pop-disc regardless..

YEAH THIS SONG ROCKS TO THE MAXIMUM,, AND SO SO UNDER-RATED,

one thing it symbolise about Queen is that after its rebelious heavy rock acts in there lays a poet spreading his words about the world we live in!

so under rated at the time so does many songs such as jealousy, thats why bands have fans.... to tell those non believers that this is greater!

ROCK ON QUEENS!


too much sweetness is starting to turn

on all of us

Jab and Tranquilize the sour vibe.

so the taste of the bitter pills be our discipline once again

"White Man" sucks.

Well, OK, that might be a bit harsh. But I see it in the 5 or 10 worst Queen songs ever. That still makes it better than most songs by most other bands, but it still isn't up to Queen's standard, I think.

I'm not sure why. The song is made up of good musical ideas, but it just doesn't seem to come together somehow.

I skip it 90% of the time. Of course, I used to skip "Drowse" 99% of the time, but now I sometimes put A Day at the Races in just to hear it. So maybe "White Man" will get to me in the future.

"White Man" one of my favourite Queen rockers. Don't like the background hiss through the quiet parts though. I also like the appearance of the "White Man" theme in the "A Day At The Races"-intro, that's a nice touch... It should've been on Queen Rocks.
