Okay, I wondered many years what Freddie says just before Under Pressure at Wembley '86.

It sounds to me like 'the pimes', but I think that's rather impossible.

Help me, I'm desperate...

Thank you. I have wanted to ask that for a long time too as I have no idea what he says too, so anybody wants to chime in.

I've listened a thousand times to that fragment but can't make a thing out of it.

The only thing I suggest he could say is 'the times' but it doesn't make sense. Unless Freddie just thought about that famous newspaper or wanted to make a statement about 'the busy times' with a lot of pressure. I don't know.

I thought he said 'you swines' or something along those lines.


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

'i have aids and will die in 1991 dears' thats what he says if you slow it down and use the zoom feature on some dvd players to read his lips... i'm sorry that was a stupid joke...but is it a joke if it's not funny...anyway, i apologize if i offended anyone with my stupidity.

It sounded like "swines."
I guess Freddie thought he finally had the crowd with his "ey-do" thing.

It sounded to me like "spines." It sounded like there were chimes or something playing there and they sounded like audio equivilent "getting a chill up your spine." That's probably not it, but that's what it always made me think iof.

He certainly does say "the Swines". well he does according to this site
http://www.ultimatequeen.co.uk/homepage.htm
then go to songs, queen, live albums, wembley. This site is good because it tells you every word said in concert. I read this then i watched wembley and it does sound right.

I originally thought he was saying "it's time..." but I believe (ir have believed) now what he is saying was "let's find..."

what happened, was the band caught Freddie out and played Under Pressure to early , so Freddie simply said "you swines" to them.


We love you Freddie, R.I.P

"You swines"
We had a topic like this years ago, and came to the conclusion that Freddie called the rest of the band Swines for starting the song to early then he wanted, like Another one bites the dust.
Seems Roger was in a hurry...must have been horny and wanted a lay.

You have to look at the thing before so you can understand.

After the singalong with the audience he says "Fuck You" and everybody is having a laugh ( the audience and the band), then the band begins Under Pressure and Freddie says something related to the moment before:- he says "Swins" but with a German accentuation. In german they say "Shvines"- i don`t know how to write it but this is the way you read it. It means swines.

Of course Freddie didn`t think the audience were swines, he only said it because the moment before he said to all of them "Fuck You", he`S acting.

Now, if you watch carefully the DVD, you can see that Freddie says it in a relaxed way like "Sh-Vii-nes", and it works as a private joke to the band, especially for John that starts laughing at it. I think the meaning behind it is Freddie Knew the equivalent German word for Swine (he lived there) and said it, probably a few days before they have made this joke between them ( like calling this to each other), so when Freddie said this at Wembley they all laugh at it because they understood the joke (that`s why i think it`s a private joke).

Let me hear your coments about this.

Take care

Well it true in life there is not many other things to think about then sex, every guy (gay guys on guys) thinks about railing every chick he see's ugly or not...
Honest, If I was a rock star I would be railing as many as I can, who needs to be married when you can have sex without trying with so many fine chicks =)

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

If I was a female rock star, I would be like Stevie Nicks...she only married once for about..a MONTH. Spent the rest of her life shagging rich hot guys, cuz she's rich and hot. WTF not!

Damn I am Poor and I do NOT EVER want to be married. I love my independence and well..you get the idea.

If I was a hot, sexy rock star, I'd be railing every hot guy I could get!

Mercury says the phrase in question just as the song begins. I sincerely doubt it would be "swines."
