Was there once a discussion on how the miracle lyric didnt make sense? I recall this from a few months back, any idea?

Oh shut up.

They make pretty good sense to me. And posts like the one above show WHY they make so much sense.

"In England 'idealism' is 'naivety', which is wrong, it's not. There's nothing wrong with idealism. Nick Lowe wrote that great song, great title - "What's so bad about peace, love and understanding", yeah, and what is so bad about it?"

1989


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.

Mind you, they have some odd ideas about what miracles really are. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon don't exist, all Captain Cook did was enable Britain to 'invade' the South Pacific (as some activists here would have you believe) and I'm not really sure what was so miraculous about Cain and Abel, considering that Cain was supposedly the first ever murderer.
And I think Sunday mornings are boring and I don't really like tea :-)

Fantastic Freddie nonsense lyrics. I love 'em!
(And the reference to his hero Jimi Hendrix, the icing on the cake!)
Don't you think the video with the "Queen mini-mes" is SOOOOOO cute!!!! There was a thread about "what happened to the Queen kids" that I really enjoyed, and I hope all are doing well and making a career in music with Queen as a major influence!

It is a "fantastic Freddie nonsense lyric" with a message I think: See how special this life is/can be. Enjoy it and be grateful to our parents who gave us this life.


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

Freddie probably wrote The Miracle in '87 or '88. I should know this, but which year did the Berlin Wall come down? I wonder if it came down around the time of the song, and if it gave Freddie great pleasure that at least one little "miracle" did in fact occur. The two sides shaking hands over the tumbled-down wall is always a great, great bit of footage.

It came down in late '89? Wow! Thanks for the info, my friend.
The lyrics to the song do seem a bit naive, but when something like that happened in the following months, it takes on a bit of pertinence. The Germans should have been singing The Miracle the night the Wall came down, not that David Hasselhoff song! lol Has anyone seen that footage? Mister Baywatch on top of the Wall singing to the united Germans! Yuck!

Wasn't "Wind Of Change" the song at that time?

"The Miracle" does make sense to me, even some of the lyrics are nonsense.
Although "if every leaf on every tree could tell a story that would be a miracle" is everything else but nonsense to me.

A little out of topic, but this is how Queen lyrics developed:

"It's a kind of magic" -> "How can I go on?" -> "The miracle, we're all waiting for" -> "Innuendo" -> "I'm soon be turning, round the corner" -> "I long for peace before I die".

I know that that was nonsence, but still I wanted to bring it up.

Whisperer, that wasn't nonsense, that was fate! Really eerie when you think back on how the songs progressed from AKOM through Innuendo. Almost prophetic...
