Alright- if you have the patience, let's get on with it. And they had either just broke up, or were about to.
The week it is was at #2, the #1 record was "Jump" by Kris Kross... Maybe the outside story was about an excecution- I think that's very clear, at least in the "mama" section. Obviously I'm not Freddie, but I can share with you a few facts that I have researched, and they can allow one to infer the meaning of this very complex song.. He had been dating Mary Austin for give or take 6 years.
He was dating women- but on the inside, was most likely not content with his love life.
This already gives us so much insight into how he had been feeling.
Since 1978, when California reinstated capital punishment, 58 death row inmates have died from natural causes, 22 have committed suicide, 13 have been executed in California, one was executed in Missouri, and six have died from other causes.
Hi MUsic lovers, I think the idea of the lyrics of the song came from the lyrics of the song called 'I Shot The Sheriff' written and sung by Bob Marley in 1973. Put the cat outside last night, But I'll never win the fight. This is just no fun, That cat has gone and thrown me out again! Didn't mean to wake you up, If I'm not back inside before tomorrow, Carrion, Carrion . Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger- now he's dead"Here he can be telling Mary about the affair- but obviously very much in code.
Because the lyrics or the story of the song was very impressive and he liked it a lot! He also may mean that it's his time to make seperate ways with Mary, as much as he did love her.
"anyway the wind blows", meaning if it's men or women- it doesn't matter to him."mama, just killed a man.But I think that Freddie wrote a song 'Bohemian' influenced by cover version by Eric Clapton in 1974. He's saying how he "killed" his old innocent self."Mama, life had just begun- but now i've gone and thrown it all away"Still talking to Mary, he says how the old him was still young and he feels like he only just started dating people like Mary- but now he just threw that person away."Mama, ooh- didn't mean to make you cry.."Here he's more emotional and he's trying to apologize to Mary- saying that he really didn't want to hurt her."..Eric came back from the rehab of heroin and alcohol addiction, with a new album '461 Ocean Boulevard' which including a single 'I Shot The Sheriff'. If i'm not back again this time tomorrow- carry on, carry on- as if nothing really matters"By "i'm", he may mean his old self- the one who she loved and the one who loved her. I read the comments sections on a lot of songs and the "meanings" people come up with can be really creative. But those saying its about AIDS, this was in 1975 and according to the website AVERT (the AIDS timeline part)----Western scientists and doctors remain ignorant of the growing epidemic - See more at: (this comes from the 70's section), it wasn't until 81 that docs became aware----so I highly doubt this was about AIDS. On December 28th, 1975, "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on April 18th, 1976 it peaked at #9 (for 2 weeks) and spent almost a half-year on the Top 100 (24 weeks)... People hav said that he began writing the song at Ealing Art College- which means that it was in his head and he was working on it for a decade at least.
