I'm a Queen fan since 1977, but I never was much into their 80's songs, so I never really got used to the Magic/Miracle/Innuendo stuff. But in the recent months I more often listened to those later songs and it struck me, how some of the lyrics could be related to Freddie's illness or his inevitable death – not only his own compositions. I can't decide if that was intended or if it is just a coincidence. I'm not an English native speaker, so of course I may interprete some lyrics in the wrong way. But in these songs I see innuendos (sic!) of Freddie's fate:
Don't Try So Hard, Mother Love – very similar
The Show Must Go On
These Are The Days Of My Life: Not really, but Freddie may have bended the meaning a bit towards a "Goodbye" to his fans
I'm Going Slightly Mad: "It finally happened" – Freddie surely was aware thet he was in danger of being infected
Bijou: The short lyrics could be interpreted as a plea to Jim.
But: Too Much Love Will Kill You is definitely over-interpreted, if you connect it with Freddie's love-life
What do you think? Please don't come with that old crap of BoRhap being about AIDS and stuff, be serious!
... I'll be back again before it's time for sunny-down ...
