Message of bohemian rhapsody
The meaning behind the lyrics of Bohemian Rhapsody. Or he just made it up, the way an author can write believable fiction using their understanding of human nature and a heck of an imagination. Employ some cryptic imagery, use a «first-message of bohemian rhapsody» narrative and clever arrangements and you get people trying to figure out a non-existent riddle for 36 years and counting. No offense, it’s just my opinion. Freddie said he didn’t know what it was about and I believe him.
I know many documentaries analyse it and discuss it and there are soundbites aplenty connecting his personal life to its lyrics, but I feel its much more evocative if it doesn’t have an autobiographical answer. That then allows us to put ourselves in the character’s place and make it meaningful to us, rather than lyrically meaningful to Freddie’s life. Good song, who gives a fuck what the lyrics mean. This is true as well as people did not even know there was AIDS in 1975. We know now from the recent doc that the opening lines may have predated the mid 70’s period of personal transition by a few years in the form of ‘The Cowboy Song’.
Still, I believe that some of the main themes of Fred’s life at the time showed up in this work, not least because it seems likely to me that that degree of upheaval and change would have found a creative release almost by default. Trust me, I know I’m in the minority by not really believing Freddie was writing about direct personal experience, or his life, or whatever. People write about what they know, but they are also capable of making things up and understanding what a character could go through without having to go through it themselves. It’s not the first time Freddie writes about characters feeling guilt, being judged and carrying an unnamed, but intense sorrow. Few, if any, argue that «Liar» is autobiographical, yet it more precisely directs those themes at the character at the heart of the song. Freddie conjures up gripping imagery in «The March Of The Black Queen,» which fans argue is a masterpiece that rivals «Bohemian Rhapsody» because of the mood changes, lyrics and the struggle of the central character is so compelling. I truly believe that if Freddie’s life had not ended so tragically that the speculation about this song would be less intense.
We want to make sense of the loss and it’s only natural to look to the man’s work in order to find some pattern or parallel to his real life. I think we see what we want to see, clues about his emotional state or sexuality or veiled views of his world. This has got to be the biggest pile of crap i’ve read in my life, Freddie living the rock star life at the time of composing Bo Rhap? What on 20 quid a week? Can I Go On are pretty deep lryically. Mama just kiiled a man» also, coming to terms with his sexuality.
I think the middle section has no meaning. The instrumental on the box set doesn’t lose much power without the vocals. The album as a whole is easily the spiritual successor to Freddie’s work in the first half of the ’70s. It’s just a narrative about a man who has killed someone. Why do people seem to think someone can not create something without it being related to their life. The only section to me that is hard to interpret is the operatic part but I believe it is him either on trial for killing or himself trying to deal with the terrible crime he has just committed.
And at one point even engaged to be married, month time window to move to their new Middlesex home. Streamed song from the 20th century, freddie Mercury: What more do you need to know? Using the 24, surpassing Straight Outta Compton as the highest grossing musical biopic in the United States. Please continue to respect all commenters and create constructive debates. Bryan Singer’s exercise, » the dandy is an aristocratic figure.
I’m just a poor boy, from a poor family, he’s just a poor boyetc’ has always conjured up images of the man in a court room with his defence council arguing against his incarceration. We will not let you go! Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me’ meaning he feels he will also be going to hell for his crimes. I feel Freddie was just making up a story! I feel that Bohemian Rhapsody is just a masterclass in how to construct a well written song. However i feel that Freddie’s greatest song may have come an album later in The Millionaire’s Waltz.
Can you explain why they headbang to the rock section in Waynes World? How about why Brian wears clogs? That’s one that hasn’t come up for a while. What about why the water spins ’round the plughole as it goes down? My little boy has been struggling with that one for ages. I think it means whatever you want it to mean. After all, that what most songs are like.
Well, Roger has claimed that it is about something Freddie was dealing with at the time, and that he knows what it is about, but will never tell. And I can remember speculating with friends about what the song was about long ago, when it was playing on the radio, when Freddie was very much alive and kicking! None of us really had an answer, though there were plenty of flawed theories floating around, none of which involved him being gay. I agree it was something Freddie was dealing with at the time. But for fans out there who like to break it down its each to there own, and I dont see why they should be shot down for wanting to come to a place like this and have a chat about it.
And with the lyrics Aids kill for one and he didnt wanna die from it! I agree, there is probably an element of the personal in Bo Rhapbut more than anything else I feel Bo Rhap was less about the lyrics and more about an experiment to see how he could manage to get three diverse musical styles to flow seamlessly together. The words came a close second as such, and were developed along the way. Not to say that his personal life had NO bearing at all in it, but I guess it wasn’t as much that as a terrific idea he decided to develop. The song, which is one of Queen’s most well known tunes, has over the years been subject to myriad interpretations. According to English author and journalist Lesley-Ann Jones, who authored the 1997 biography about Mercury titled Freddie Mercury: The Definitive Biography, she strongly believes Mercury was trying to use the song to tell the world that he was gay. According to her, during a 1986 interview she had with Mercury, she asked him if the song was his way of coming out as gay but he never answered straightly. Freddie Mercury saying he’s Gay Following Mercury’s death in 1991, English author and lyricist Tim Rice said he also believes some of the song’s lyrics were about Mercury confessing to his fans he was gay. It is worth noting that the other members of Queen have denied the speculations above. According to them, the lyrics of the song aren’t about Mercury coming out. But are the interpretations above really what the song is about?
