Hello.

This is my first post here.
I'm from Barcelona (Spain), so forgive me if my english is not too good...

About the song "Death on two legs", I was wondering: who is it dedicated to??...
Does anybody know??.

I'd like to know as well what does "Death on two legs" mean. It doesn't make much sense to me.

I hope some of you can help me!

Thanks.

And this is what have been beeped:
"This next song is from 'A Night At The Opera'. This is about a dirty nasty man, we call him motherfucker, do you know what motherfucker means? I'm sure you have a word for it! We call him, we also call him 'Death on Two Legs' Heh heh heh hey!"

Mannaja- it amkes a lot of sense, it's pretty much a bad stuff said about their previous manager. But very colourfull to that :) Pretty much the same you can say about "Flick Of The Wrist"- both lyrics are similar, although some say that FOTW is about pimp... Could be... But DOTL is defintelly about their manager- "you've taken all my money -and you want more!!!" Basically band was selling a lot of records, had alreadt Top 10 hits like "Killer Queen" and "Seven Seas" yet wasn't earning that much... Most of it was going into Norman Sheffield's pocket...

One of Queen's greatest ever songs. live it's even better so it's a real shame that they dropped it in th eeighties.
