It's about Elmer Wayne Henley, his killing of serial killer Dean Corll, and what came to be known as the Houston Mass Murders...
I'm happy the younger generation are rediscovering the magic of Freddie Mercury, Queen and their music (including Don't Stop Me Now which is on the soundtrack of another 2016 movie! ' in reality it's just what Farrokh Bulsara aka Freddie Mercury said... You wanna know the real meaning of the song and what it's about?
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.
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.
Everyone was so surprised at what he was doing on that album. His best friend is Barney.(He works for Mister Slate, pushing rocks, Spends his day on the clock.)When the whistle-bird blows, Yabba Dabba Doo time! In this case, he's saying if he doesn't come back- for her to go on and date new people and just forget about him like it doesn't even matter.
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.
Can't deny, I was first 'toonto get it on prime - to get it on prime time TV! And this is definitely a song I enjoy "any way the wind blows".
The song was used in the 2 minute plus trailer of the DC Comics movie, Suicide Squad. Most people here are making this song sound like a David Lynch movie! you have a stupid lil simple story, & you make it so complex that people are forced to say, 'oh my, that's so deep!
.)Bohemian Rhapsody is gaining popularity once again in 2016!
This already gives us so much insight into how he had been feeling.
But at this time- as far as we know, he hadn't been in any male relationships.
So you think you can love him and forget that Iwas first 'toon! I can see the gay angle, if you push it, but when it comes to music, I prefer to just enjoy and keep it simple.
