Queen songs have this amazing quality. I'm not talking about Freddie's blessed pipes or the awe-inspiring and kick-ass melodies. I'm after the words. Which song by Queen (or any solo song)do you identify with the most? I'm not asking for your favourite song. I'm asking you to go deeper. Think about what a song says, and how you think that reflects you and/or the world around you.

That's easy... The Show Must Go On. No further details are needed really.

You're my best friend has always been close to me. I think of someone and when i love them, that song just says it all. Who wants to live forever kicks me off when im in a sad mood. Spread your wings gave me a subliminal message that i should try and get away from things.

I think I know what you mean. The good thing is that you always have your own interpretation (Like BoRhap being about AIDS 'n stuff like that).

Well, years ago I looooved White Queen because it was such a nice description of a crush I had. It was about a girl I knew from a disco, she always looked sad, and I was so in love with her. Sadly, she never looked at me. I only went to that stupid disco because of her. And everytime I saw her it was like 'the white Queen walks and the night grows pale.'

There are many more, but the nicest moment was in school, when Hammer to Fall was the anthem of my friends and me whenever we saw girls with huge jugs.(because the girl with the biggest jugs had "Hammer" as surname.) So, whenever one of us shouted HAMMER TO FALL, we knew there was nice cleavage in the area.

It`s a had choice, but in this moment, from the top off my head, I`d got with Put Out The Fire. That line "you need a weapon like a hole in the head" got me from day one


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.

White Queen and The Night Comes Down have the most personal meaning to me. Brings me back to a turmoiled time in my mid teenage years, and those songs always comfort me.

God wants you to send me some money.

If you're meaning the lyrics then I think that's Too Much Love Will Kill You. F.x:
"Too much love will kill you, just as sure as none at all"
It's like he's saying that it's bad to love two (or more) persons, but it's as bad to love no-one...

I've always liked this song because of that.

I think I identify with Who Wants To Live Forever, because lately I've been thinking about whether it's better to have someone and lose them or to have never loved them at all. I still haven't actually decided, though.

A long time ago it was "In On Seven Days" because the exact same thing happened to me on vacation. Of course, then I realized that she was just kind of slutty.

I'd probably have to go with "It's Late."
