The best song ever written!
And no, this is not up for debate, so please save your ‘opinions’ for another occasion; because there simply ain’t a better song………
“Mama, just killed a man;” the hairs on my neck stand up in salutation when I hear this!
What if it’s not a metaphor, “just killed a man”, for killing his older self, and Mercury did indeed kill someone? What if he meant something else? What if the man in question was actually a woman? So many layers….
Is this the real life, or is this just fantasy, I ask?
But then you have something like, “Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away”, and there’s nothing to deconstruct there; because it is a simple, nostalgic, over-played, monotonous, single-layered piece of cheap poetry, yet they go on to be “the biggest.”
“Let it be….” Are you kidding me! What next, “We are the world, we are the chillun”?
“…I believe the chillun are the future….” Well, duh, that’s how it works (biologically); tell me something I don’t know already!
