Could be about a severe attack of Jaundice and Diarrhea.

Possibly about peeing against the wind.

The bass sound I think suggests it was originally called Brown Breezes.

Pretty pathetic.


Your own view of the songs subject lead the way I think

Yes sorry we should've been more serious when discussing Yellow Breezes' labyrinthine palimpsest set of lyrics

You ruin every topic you contribute to so this is people treating you the way you treat others. Not nice, is it? But I'm sure you'll fail to learn that simple lesson and continue whining like the whiny bitch you are.

I believe Lord Mayor Thomas Bloodworth said a similar thing to Samuel Pepys after the Great Fire.

My take: Freddie was watching Jim Hutton's underwear flapping on the windowsill early one morning.... glowing yellow in the sun.


But of course this is only speculative stuff, not conjecture - and is unfounded and likely incorrect....

Without the full tape or someone who was present, we may never know

“Yellow breezes” was north eastern slang for a hangover long ago, he more than likely learned the phrase in NYC or touring New England.

The first vocal line of Yellow Breezes sounds like the opening line of Lap Of The Gods!

Don't eat the yellow snow. I think it's Freddie's own interpretation of that.

Holly2003 You are the classic troll on here congrats!


Being as you are incapable of relying to any post without a derogatory comment, and repost the same shite over and over again and in the process have ended up on the wrong side of almost everyone, have you ever thought that maybe you're the troll

Gerry, come on man - you took your question from the Yellow Breezes thread on the "General" forum. It's not your idea, really - and the answer you're looking for is over on the other one. Not jumping on your back or looking for an argument (really!!), but don't see why you've created this thread.

I did NOT know that. Thanks!

I'll go look it up now to hopefully be assured that you didn't simply make it up! ;)

I reckon it's just down to how people interpret them. I've not found anything other than suggestions here that there's a drugs link, although have seen it said here and other places online that it's slang for hangover.

I wouldn't get too upset at some of the answers from earlier - some were funny, and some people just like a laugh, even if they couldn't give you a definite answer.
