Just wondered. I have heard this song a lot lately, and I really love it. In one verse he goes:

I try to be like Grace Kelly
But all her looks were too sad
So I try a little Freddie
Ive gone identity mad!

Our Freddie Mercury?

(I hate to bring this up, but this is the 3rd thread about this song that I've seen. One of them sparked a discussion about Treasure Moment, the 2nd greatest band ever, and the other sparked a disagreement over how bad Robbie Williams is. So I'm wary of threads about this song)

To answer your question : it's plainly Freddie, yeah.

I didnt know and I dont care. If it annoyed you its sad for you.

Still I want to thank you for the kind answer. :)

I don't know about anyone else but this song has been played to death on radio already. I liked it at first but now I'm just sick of hearing it.

I agree that it's being overplayed but it is a good song. Does it remind anyone else of "Man from manhattan"?

Of course he's not referring to Freddie Mercury.
He means Fred Astaire. Since he also sings about Grace Kelly and mentions Humphrey (Bogard) in the end.

He's referring to Fred Biletnikoff.

Legendary wide receiver of the Oakland Raiders.

Ofcourse he is referring to Freddie Mercury.

Also the planet Mercury ws named after Freddie. And Queen Elizabeth was named after our favorite band!

Of course it is a reference to Freddie Mercury. It might be a double entendre to include Fred Astaire as well .... but it is undoubtedly a Queen reference when he uses Mercury's voice, facial expression and then the lyric about going "mad" which is homage to queens last album "Innuendo" 's lyric "I'm going slightly mad".

Enjoy Freddie's reincarnation ad Mika ... I missed him and I am glad he is back!!! Maybe he can reunite the old gang and have some fun ... in addition to making some smash bang great music for the new millenium.
