Oh I've always loved that song. Probably because it was the b-side to Another One Bites the Dust here in the states, and that single was the first Queen product I ever owned, so I naturally played both sides quite a bit :)

I personally like this song because it's very interesting musically. It starts with this funk-style, bassline thing, and then goes on with this rockabilly style ("you need help" part). I like that.

It's a great song! Full with clever Freddie musical tricks. Perhaps people don't like it because they can't connect the happy-peppy style of music with the somewhat morbid lyrics?

I rather like it.
I kind of have the same thing with you about Delilah. Bet I'm the only one who actually likes that.

haha, I love Delilah too. I'm a long-time cat owner though, maybe that's why.

I didn't like it. It sounded too bare. I like the usual rich sounds Queen puts out. Plus, it seemed a little over the top with a public service announcement for kids. But it perhaps worked.

I remember reading a transcript from a radio interview with Roger Taylor back in '97, just after Hong Kong had returned to China. This HK police chief called in and was carrying on about how Queen's music always calmed him down. Then he said "I was thinking about jumping out my office window this morning, but I listened to Queen and decided not too." Roger says "Um.....please don't do that." and then stammers on a bit more before the line goes dead. Poor Roger.


Thank you, God bless you, sweet dreams you lot of tarts, Good-bye!

It`s not my favourite song but one thing i`m shure:

It`s a Police rip off (although Sting might have been honoured!!)

Take care

One of the songs I always skip. Boring and unimaginative...
