have you noticed that a lot of songs Freddie wrote usually have the word "mamma" in it such as boh rhap, mother love, and you don't fool me. Is Freddie emotional about his mom?

Crazy Little Thing as well (in the live versions), and My Fairy King for some extent. But it doesn`t mean he`s obsessed or anything. Some songs mention mamma or mother or whatever, but A LOT don`t. You can`t say I`m alcoholic because I get rat-arsed eight nights in a year, because it means that in 357 nights I`m NOT bladdered. And of course, the other 8 are my prize :)


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.

Brian is obsessed with the word "And" I heard he uses it a lot

And John with the second personal pronoun. Just note his titles:

YOU`re my best friend
YOU and I
Who Needs YOU
Spread YOUR wings
If YOU Can`t Beat Them
Need YOUR loving tonight

Additionally, the most repeated sentence in Misfire is "don`t YOU misfire"

Hahaha - AND is a great word. Maybe that explains, why Brian likes collaborations so much ... :)

Freddie used the music terminology in the titles of his songs: March, Rhapsody, Waltz etc.

Great! I was just thinking about this "Mama" thing a few days back. He certainly uses it more often than other songwriters. Don't forget the Freddie demo "Holding On"
