I wonder why Freddie liked arrows so much on his clothes, at least on the Hot Space Tour, at Milton Keynes., etc.

Also arrow imagery...remember the "sensual" body painted arrow pointing..down..that the band had in the video for "I Want To Break Free".

(Although The Who used an arrow as their main logo too.)

But Freddie & Queen used it for more shall we say...erotic meaning don't you think.

They wore clothes that were in fashion at the time, the Works era gives a great example.

That was Body Language - why do I even bother to answer. Apparently you try to wind up people with your nonsense posts.

He wore the arrow stuff on Hot Space tour because that was his 'thing' for that tour. Differant things for differant tours. Like the jackets on the Magic Tour, the crown lighting rig on the Crazy/Jazz/Live Killers tour (or whenever it was).

On the cover of Body Language the single it has the arrows painted on 2 bodies. Freddie wearing the arrows connects with that. I think that stuff is clever. Like when the artwork of singles is similar of the album they are off (like Innuendo or The Miracle).

It was a daft question really. In words similar to those of Dr Frank N Furter 'You better wise up Arlene Weiss'.

The version of "I Want To Break Free" video that I have seen here in the USA, does have a body painted arrow pointing downward. I Have watched it MANY times!!!!

I want to break free video does have ppl with arrows painted on them during the solo part, in some ballet like crap dancing and stupid shit like that, I had to actually see it again, I thought the same way Barb did about that, very easy to forget, well not so easy, but this aint something I want to remember.
Now about Brian's clog, go ahead Arlene, start a new topic so we can discuss that

Well I like being on top and assertive, start things..you get the point eh,...of my men that is...but I also like a man who isn't a p***y and is ready to be a man of action..as Freddie would say, "Action this Day".

Go for it...be a man!!!

There is no version of the IWTBF video with body painting, not to mention arrows.

The middle part of the video is an re-enactment of Nijinsky's ballet realisation of Debussy's "Prélude à l'après-midi d'un Faune". The dancers wear ballet suits, there is no body painting. Freddie is, of course, the Faune and he wears a replica of Nijinsky's costume - with no arrows at all.

I think it's because Arrows stand symbol for the phallus

Hahahaha! That actually made me LAUGH...


I meant when Freddie SANG it in the song. Some things I mean as circumstance, not literal. (I know Roger wrote it).

Queen knew that some of their biggest fans attended Central Michigan University. For about twenty years, the Chippewas football team sported arrows on their helmets, in the style of the old Washington Redskins.

This was the band's tribute to us.

Check liner notes, on the sleeve for the third vinyl of GH III.

And so...what do you think about Brian's outfit w/ many arrows on it which he sometimes wore from the middle to late '70s?
