Great, great song. Hadn't heard it before I got ROTC. But where does it come from?


This can't end well.

IMHO it's pretty awfull... bad lyrics, too obvious, a bit corny... and musically poor. The only thing that saves the song is Roger's voice...

Agreed - the lyrics are embarrassingly obvious. They should really drop this one from the current set.

I have to agree with Fenderek and drwinston. The song has absolutely no power, no structured or layered harmonics, no artistic guitar riffs, no energy, and, unfortunately, it has very elementary chord progressions.

There is just no reason to get excited about the song. During a live performance, it puts everyone to sleep. When watching the ROTC dvd at home, everyone in my family skips over it. I don't even get a rise out of watching everyone throw condoms on the stage at the end of the song.

The only redeeming value of the song lies in the message.

Songs with elementary chord progressions...

Great Balls Of Fire
Rock And Roll
Hony Tonk Women
I Want To Break Free
Blue Moon

An elementary chord progression is not a criticism in my world.

Well true about simple chord progression (I love blues man- go and check how many chords they use :) )- but SINO ain't "Rock And Rioll", I can ehear that much :)

The Lyrics are obvious - but so are the lyrics of love of my life, Is this the world we created...In my opinion it's a nice song, roger really sings it great!

I've never really thought of Love of my life's lyrics as obvious, but it's heartfelt, and not trite. The middle portion of LOML is one of the most moving things Freddie ever wrote. How Queen's greatest ballad got lumped in with a song no one will remember after this tour is beyond me.

At first I didn't like it, because, yeah the lyrics are very very bad. But Roger's voice is in top form on this song, and that's why I listen.


don't i know you from the cinematographer's party?

I happen to enjoy the lyrics, myself.
