they would meet at 15.19 providing they were both travlling at a speed of 60mph as allowed on american railways and the meeting place would be just outside of Bay City, Michigan

The first time I heard it, I thought it was incredibly long. (That was before hearing Free Bird live. Now that's long.) The second time, I listened to it more carefully, and realized just how good it was.

Freebird live at Woodstock - Wow, I couldnt take my eveys off the TV first time I saw that! Anyway, Bo Rhap, I thought it was weird.

I thought to myself that I've never heard anything like that before!And what a beutiful voice and melody!
It still remains my all time favourite track.

A friend of mine played it for me in 1991. The only thing I remember is that I asked about three or four times: "And this is still the same song??" But it had to grow on me. I did not particulary like it the first time I heard it. By now, I've listened to it too much.

Seeing as I was about 2/3(1991-92), I could not connect the first part to the "I see a little shillouetto of a man...". I just couldn't fathom that they were the same song. Plus, I thought that the latter part must be a choir of women. I just had no clue.

Well at the time it was my favorite Queen song because I never really heard any other ones...

I first remember hearing it in 1980 or 81 so I was 9 or 10. I remember loving it and playing it all the time and my mom telling me how depressing it was and that I should listen to something else :)

The first time I heard it I only heard the operatic bit, and I laughed my ass off!
The first time I heard the whole thing through, I was just shocked that it was the same song.

I acutally heard Weird Al's Bohemian Polka before I heard all of BoRhap.

Anyway, I heard the middle bit (starting with the guitar solo first) and loved it but forgot about it, and then when I heard the whole thing I released that it was that song I loved!

Same thing with the Mick Ronson version of "Madman Across the Water" which for ages was refered to as "that awesome, awesome song" and later referred to as "that awesome, awesome song that sounds like Prophet's Song and I'll probably never figure out what it's called."

But, happy endings, and I discovered what both songs were. Mind you, I have a whole pile of song snipits in my head waiting to be named and attributed.....
