Am i the only one who think that "Delilah" is a good song? in fact, it´s my favorite song on the Innuendo Album, then " I can´t Live With You"

Is there someone who disagree with me, please post your opinion, thanks :)

I love Delilah. Always have, always will. :)

I'm afraid to like it.

Too "Vito" for me.

Not among my favourite songs on Innuendo but I played it a few times last year when my cat died. It's okay but not great.

I love it! So sweet! So cute! Makes me want to get another cat! Combination of the two cutest things - Freddie and cats!

Nope. The worst song on Innuendo, imo. Sorry!

Definately not one of Queen's better moments...would have been more fitting on a Freddie solo album or something, but I think they realized Freddie wasn't in good enough shape to put out a solo thing, so they just put it on Innuendo. That's my take on it...

It's not a bad song, but I think any other track in the album is a lot better.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Is Delilah a good song?....My honest opinion is if your a 19 year old rocker your obviously gonna hate this song, but if your a lover of music and cats you'll probably like it. I personally like the song, it's probably better than the hitman.

Duh!!! All Queen songs are good. Anything sang by Freddie is GREAT. Freddie could make a shit song look like a masterpiece.

It works in the context of the album IMO. It is not a particularly great song in terms of arrangement and especially lyrics, but as part of this special album it's a sort of "maximum-tongue-in-cheeks"-thing, the essence of Freddie saying "Darling, this is gonna be on the album, if you don't like it, I don't care !"
To me Innuendo is almost like a concept-album and this is (together with IGSM) Mr. Mercury in all his campness. Followed by a killer metal track like Hitman (the song-order on Innuendo is outstanding) it's just typical Queen.

It sounds more like a demo. It's not bad, but it could be a lot better. Love the 'meeows'.
