i don't know if this was asked before, but i just want to ask again...

do you guys think that innuendo was somewhat a premonition of what was going to happen to freddie?

i mean come on... listen to innuendo's lyrics. and... the show must go on... and i'm going slightly mad! and to think that "TATDOOL" is a song of reminiscing... he might have reminisced stuff before he died...

just asking. i wanna know what you guys think. :D

I think you need to research about who wrote TATDOOL and TSMGO...

Well, it was obvious he knew he didn't have a lot of time left.

well, yeah. bo rhap. but then... isn't that like his... sitch? i mean, he was confused and all at that time about his sexuality, etc. but tsmgo and tatdool.... it's really like a dying message. i mean, it doesn't have to be the writer istelf leaving the message... maybe God/Allah/Ahura Mazada (for the zoroastrians) was inclined to make queen write those songs just to give the message... :D

I just finished watching a Queen doco and Brian said they made innuendo knowing that there wasn't much time left, and he pointed ot you can tell by the songs on it, so there you go.

He knew he was infected since the 80's, a lot before The Miracle. Maybe thats why Brian wrote The Show MGO, and Brian, Roger and John agreed to do Delilah. Maybe. The truth is that while recording Innuendo, Queen knew that it was going to be the last time they were together in a studio to record an album. Sad isn't it? you can feel that in the whole album. Just Listen to Bijou, or the great Innuendo song itself. I personally love that album.

Peace.

probably, yeah. he knew he was going already. buti was just thinking... how come they knew that innuendo was gonna be their last? a life span of a person with aids can be unpredictable... just look at magic johnson. he's still alive, and he's got aids. why'd they write such... sad, reflect-y songs already, when they couldn't have exactly predicted what was going to happen? i might be answering my own question in the following sentence. was it because freddie was becoming thinner and thinner by "the miracle"?

When they got into studio to record Innuendo, Freddie was ILL, not just had AIDS, he was ill and going down.

Theres people like Magic Johnson and many others doing alright this days, but Freddie was living his last days, he knew it, the doctors knew it and the rest of Queen knew it, that's why this album is like that, there's no coincidence.

The fact is that Freddie and the others knew he didnt have much time left, not only that he was infected or he had AIDS. Maybe the doctors told him how much time he had left.

Do you know that nobody dies directly from the virus or AIDS? the virus fux your entire immune system and you can die of anything that a healhty person wont die from it. Freddie sadly died form pneumonia, because there was no cure for him, and in his case it could have been anything, cuz a person with aids can die of any sickness, it just goes more and more complicated till the end.

I think the lyrics were surprisingly not his when you think they must have been. But, yeah... Innuendo was made with the knowledge that it was likely the end. So was Made In Heaven(other than the remake songs of the past), and even The Miracle might have had Freddie's condition in mind.

I think Freddie wasn't about direct lyrics, but more so about lyrics that could have multiple interpretations and more importantly lyrics that have a timeless, broad stance to define the songs, not any outside thoughts, themes or meanings.

Freddie's final message was in fact printed in the Kensington Gazzette on the Thursday following his death. It read; "Signed copy of Driven By You by Brian May for sale, never been played £3.00 O.N.O. P.O Box 3677, London."

That's total and utter pish, Fatty. It was £5.00.
Freddie knew his antiques.
