"Yeah"

Or Untitled AKA "Track 13" even though it is "Track 14"

All of them have just magical and thought provoking lyrics that mesmerise you with their amazing poetry.

Save Me - great emotional song about breaking up

Good Company - thoughtful lyrics, quite deep for such a "simple" song

I Want To Break Free - and

Spread Your Wings - two great songs from John about wanting to break free from the drudgery of every day life

Drowse - interesting wordplay and evocative mood by Roger

Days Of Our Lives - emotional song about growing older

Bohemian Rhapsody - Freddie masterpiece about wanting to be yourself, even though that may be radically different than other people's perception and how to deal with that.

White Queen without a doubt

Somebody to Love

The repetition just enforces the message and also makes you concentrate on the music. I think it is just simply perfect.

The Prophet's Song... and White Queen.

And perhaps the Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke. Or not.


And Innuendo. And the rest.

I've always had a soft spot for '39, both musically and lyrically.

Besides that I really like Was It All Worth It, and as many have said, White Queen. Very beautiful poetry. Oh and Put Out The Fire, priceless.


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.

Definitely "White Queen". Unlike most Queen songs, it has a subtle meaning, that's hidden deep within the lyrics. You really have to look for it. The structure and words are arranged with much skill and it fits perfectly with the song. Brian May is a lyrical genius.

I also like Brian's "Save Me", even if the meaning is far more blunt. It just fits the music so well, and the solo is almost a continuation of the words that cannot be expressed through language.


Creativity can always cover for a lack of knowledge.
