I don't hate the Hitman... I love that song.
It has been speculated by some of Freddie's best friends that "The Hitman" is AIDS itself.
As we all know, The Hitman is Freddie's song, and Brian says its Freddie's down to the guitar riff. (Which was composed on piano according to sources)..
I am not one to think that everything Freddie did from 1986-1991 has hidden AIDS meaning, but I think the "Hitman" may be one of those things that does.
And it would be in Freddie's style... as his attitude during the song was kind of happy, arrogant, and...yeah, you're here (his disease) and SO WHAT??
I was at a party one time, and Innuendo cd was on, and a girl was standing by the cd player... when "Hitman" came on, she went back to track 3, which is Headlong.
I said..."Hey, I like Hitman".
She said.. "I do too, but I am too emotional today to hear Freddie sing about coping with Aids".
I didn't press the issue, but I thought...hmmm.. Weird that she should say that too.
