Have you ever had a Queen song that took you ages or alot of time to learn off by heart?

I have...the pain in the ass lyrics like:

Tear It Up
Fairy Feller
Radio Gaga
I'm Going Slightly Mad
Stone Cold Crazy

I mean the last one wasn't that hard but the speed of the song was too much for me, even when I try singing it alone without any music I find it hard to sing it all correctly.
Surprising but true, Radio Gaga took me more time to learn then most songs from the Greatest Hits, also I'm Going Slightly Mad because I hardly listen to this song and I still don't to this day. Fairy Feller is just pure crazyness, what the hell? :P And Tear It Up, the chorus is kinda hard.

What about you guys?

I usually pick up lyrics quite quickly, although I still have a few 'mumblers,' you know, where you pretend to know the lyrics but you just kind of mumble through the bits you don't know..

You know the part in Bo Rhap where its like "Mama just killed a man put a gun against his head pulled my trigger now he's dead"

I thought it was saying his mama killed a man so I was like , wait if his mom just killed a man then why did he say he pulled the trigger?!




Oh dear, I though the same thing!!! XD

I can't remember the lyrics to most songs off the top of my head, but when I hear the music, it all comes back to me.

Nice collage by the way, electric7.

Actually come to think of it, I don't know all the words to Innuendo...I don't listen to it much, probably that's why.

hmm...

Fairy Feller was hard for me, but i got it down now! lol

Stone Cold Crazy because of the speed, but when i first heard it I was like OMG, this song is awesome i gotta learn it so i kept listening to it till i got it down pat!


And Headlong was too just because i kept mixing up verses and the lyrics are soo campy i love them!

And I always got "And When its Mine" wrong from 7 Seas of Rhye, i always thought it was "And WIth a SMIIIILLLEEEE" lol

Am I the only one who hadn´t had any problems with Fairy Feller´s ?? I sometimes learn strange and funny lyrics faster than the "normal" ones, just because they´re more interesting :)

That's because it IS "with a smile". "When it's mine" doesn't even make sense in there.

Erh, I don't know the lyrics to Tie your mother down, i just mumble through the verses.... I'm like:
"Get your party down
get your, eh, party down
get your... blahblahblah!"
*ashamed*
Same thing with Seven seas of Rhye.


"Okay, you have to stop the Q-tip when there's resistance!"

Definatly Bo Rhap.
I remember seeing the sheet music for it (we sang it in high school), and just looking at the spelling that they chose for the Beazulbub section made me want to die with laughter....Is there a right way to spell that stuff???

The hardest part was just listening to the rest of the choir screw everything up....a high school choir should never be allowed to sing that song ever....it's like a massacre.
Vocally, no, not hard at all. Linguistically, once we got all hundred people to pronounce everything the same way, it was easy. Just sounded like crap.
