Im not sure how many times this has been asked but i need to ask the question.

I love Bohemian Rhapsody, but some of the lyrics dont make sense to me like:

Gallileo, Gallileo,
Gallileo, Gallileo,
Gallileo Figaro - magnifico

Who/what is Gallileo? Was it like just something that Queen made up or something from another language like Latin or something?

As well as:

Bismillah! No - we will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let me go

Who is Bismillah?

Thanks everybody,
Pauley

Bismillah is at the beginning of the Kuran meaning 'in the name of Allah/God'

Galileo on the other hand was an Italian astronomer, philosopher, and physicist who did many a great thing in his life time.

Take a look there.

Figaro..well I'm not sure..I think it's from a musical/play but I'm not sure.

Does it matter what it means??????


You've never seen nothing like it, no never in your life. Like going up to heaven and then coming back alive.

Figaro is Italian for hairdresser. The figaro is the main character of the opera "Le Nozze di Figaro" (The Marriage of figaro) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Figaro is also a character of the Commedia dell'arte.

Sorry, my dearest, but I don't think that Figaro is hairdresser in Italian. At least, not for me.


That time will come, one day you'll see that i'll be dead and you will laugh!

I read that bismillah was a ceremony in the muslim religion when a boy made his first reading out of the Qu'ran. Everyone would gather around to hear him utter the words from the holy book.

NO we don't do that !!

Bismillah simply means in the name of God
B= In , ism= The name of , Allah= God


that's enough about me, now, what do you think of me ?

Well, this is easy to mix up for me, Hitman. Figaro was also the main character of "Il barbiere di Siviglia" , another opera based on a play by Beaumarchais. Through this opera Figaro became a synonym for barber in Germany, mainly through many modern comedies based on the Rossini opera.
