Band Name Origins:

  • The name of the band was not for its regal sound, or anything to do with homosexuality. It was all Freddie's idea that the name be Queen after his grandmother-s pet dog "Queenie". Submitted by: Richard n
  • I have a video documentary about Freddie M / Queen compiled by the BBC and broadcast just after his death. Roger and Brian were originally in a band together called "Smile". When Freddie joined them they took on the name "Queen" because, in Freddie's own words, it was "Very pompus, very grand," Judging by the grin on his face, I reckon it was to do with being bisexual and he was having a stab at the establishment (This was the seventies, remember).

"Brian May""Brian May is an excellent singer, though much better known for his guitar work. He and Roger Taylor both came out with some good solo albums, and both did get to sing lead on some Queen songs during the group's career. But it would seem that they still need to tour under the Queen name, even with Freddie long gone, apparently content to also share the stage with Paul Rodgers." - Lisa

a parody of "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen
The music has been "country-fied", and it's the story of somebody's trip to a Wal-Mart. Interestingly and ironically, the idea for this song came to me one day several months ago when I was shopping in a Target store.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"'39"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
In the year of '39, assembled here the Volunteers
In the days when lands were few
Here the ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn
The sweetest sight ever seen
Why They're Misrhymed:
'Seen' doesn't rhyme with 'few'. To me, the lyric should have been 'the sweetest sight ever *viewed*'; this would have been a much closer rhyme while leaving the meaning intact.

"I'm Going Slightly Mad"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I'm coming down with a fever
I'm really out to sea
This kettle is boiling over
I think I'm a banana tree
I'm knitting with only one needle
Unravelling fast its true
I'm driving only three wheels these days
But my dear how about you?
Why They're Misrhymed:
This is more to make a point than anything, this is rock, not rap, so every line doesn't have to rhyme. In this song 'sea' goes with 'tree' and yes, 'true' does rhyme with 'you' The lyrics are meant to rhyme off and on.

"Death on Two Legs (Dedicated To...)"
The Insulting Lyrics:

I am immortal
I have inside me blood of kings
I have no rival

Comments:
OK Freddie was a good singer and brilliant performer but he evidently was not immortal. Despite the band name he was no heir to a throne, let alone the universe. While he has few rivals/equals many would argue that Jagger and Bowie gave as good a musical performance. Furthermore initially he says we were born to be kings, then he is saying that they are not equal. Finally if you want to hear someone boast more than this check out Chesney Hawks and his 'one and only' hit.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy"
The Lyrics:
I'd like for you and I to go romancing.
Why:
Freddie Mercury uses the subjective pronoun "I" in the object of the sentence. You wouldn't say,"I'd like for I to go romancing." He should've said, "I'd like for you and me to go romancing." Or even better yet, "I'd like for us to go romancing." I'm not even going to try and figure out if he's using the word romancing correctly in this sentence.

Real Places Mentioned in Songs:

"Killer Queen"
The Lyrics:
To avoid complications She never kept the same address In conversation She spoke just like a baroness Met a man from China Went down to geisha minah Then again incidentally If you're that way inclined
Perfume came naturally from Paris (Naturally) For cars she couldn't care less Fastidious and precise
Why:
"Killer Queen" was the break through U.S. hit for the British group, Queen. "Killer Queen" was the group's first top ten hit in the U.S., in 1975, going all the way to #2 on the charts (their follow-up, "Bohemian Rhapsody" would also reach #2). What made it so popular was the amazing vocal ability of lead singer, the late great Freddie Mercury, who was able to sing the lyrics (especially the 4th and 5th verse above fairly quickly with hardly a breath in between the words). In those two verses are shoutouts to the country of China and the city of Paris, France (Naturally). Also in the fourth verse their is a made up by Freddie Mercury phrase of "geisha minah" (which is play on the words of a place named, Asia Minor, as the continent of Asia used to be called).

It almost seems the song is about an artist since they were called 'Bohemians'. But even with a hard-rock moment, a mock-opera feel, and great symphonic work, it seems that even this Bohemian is confused.

"Lazin' on a Sunday Afternoon"
For the shortest song on 'A Night at the Opera', Freddie Mercury used the idea of a Music Hall song which is very witty.

Hidden Messages:

"One Vision"
At the start there is a weird noise - speed it up and it is revealed as "God works in mysterious ways". Also, the last time he sings the title line it's actually "fried chicken".

Forwards: Another one bites the dust Backwards: It's fun to smoke marijuna

"Don't Try Suicide"
During this 1980 B-side, if you listen to it backwards you hear drug-related things like "have a snort", "do a snort" and "I must have my speed". Odd, because the A-side was Another One Bites The Dust, which of course has drug-related messages...

"Ogre Battle (from Queen II)"
It's not actually a backwards mask, but rather a "palindrome" (e.g. level, noon). The opening part of the song, from the beginning until Freddie Mercury starts singing, sounds exactly the same whether played forward or in reverse.
