|I've seen this quote so many times on Queenzone, and I'm wondering if he REALLY says that.
To me "Fuck today, it's tomorrow" doesn't make sense at all.. I never heard that interview, but it seems to me that the quote would be Fuck today, live tomorrow, or something like that.
Can anyone smart enough confirm this?
|You don't have Magic Years?|
A quick google on "today, live tomorrow" gave me a lot of variatons
Die today, live tomorrow
Diet today, live tomorrow
Start today, live tomorrow
Prepare today, live tomorrow
Learn today, live tomorrow
Show today, live tomorrow
Sell today, live tomorrow
Retire today, live tomorrow
Plan today, live tomorrow
Laugh today, live tomorrow
Love today, live tomorrow
Lease today, live tomorrow
Mourn today, live tomorrow
Alert today, live tomorrow
Home today, live tomorrow
Suffer today, live tomorrow
Act today, live tomorrow
Heal today, live tomorrow
Train today, live tomorrow
And the one I really like:
Stop smoking today, live tomorrow
Unfortunately a search of "today, it's tomorrow" didn't get me anything but the incorrect use of the Freddie quote.
This seems enough evidence for me..
Now.. this means two things.
1. Freddie was an idiot
2. Some Queen fans are idiots
at about 06:40 you find him saying it!!!

|That's Freddie for yah's.
Great musician. Sh*t philospher.
On the other hand, John Paul Sartre.
Great philosopher. Sh*t musician.
Can't have it all ways!
|I Really like that quote. When you had a bad day; Fuck today! It's tomorrow|
|Shouldn't it be "Fuck today AND tomorrow" ?|

|perhaps he forgot to add "that counts"
Fuck today, it's tomorrow that counts.

|I always thought 'Fuck tomorrow, it's today' would be a better saying.
Oh and here's a third option:
3) Fried chicken is an idiot...
|that was the original text :
Interviewer (David Wiggs) : So do you live for today rather than for the future or...
Freddie: No, I live for tomorrow. Quite different too, fuck today, it's tomorrow. Oh, that's nice...
<studio light blows up with big noise>
Interviewer : That must have been a controversial remark.
Freddie: Somebody didn't like what I've just said ? !
later this part was re-edited with
"Freddie: No, hell is much better. Look at the interesting people that you're going to meet down there" / then light blows up / "Freddie: Somebody didn't like what I've just said ? !", to make the scene even more dramatic (or funny) depends on how you look at it ..

|"Fuck today, it's tomorrow and Paul Rodgers is my hero".
|For those unfortunate beings who fail to understand the importance and meaning behind this quotation read the following and see if it helps.
I translate "Fuck today, it's tommorow" as follows:
I shall only be concerned with how to better myself the following day. I failed today because of yesterday, therefore I should worry about tomorrow instead of distracting myself with today's happenings. If I do distract myself with the mishappenings of today I will only screw myself over again the following day. Also, even if something good happened today, I should not waste time thinking about it and being proud of myself; otherwise I shall screw myself the following day for being too proud. One of the primary things in this world that is important is tommorow.
Many of you might tell me I think too much into this stuff, or that I could have said all that by simply using just one sentence of explanation. But that would have been boring! But anyway, I believe the quotation, for the most part, defines the way in which Freddie Mercury lived out his life. He never got too high on himself, he seemed to always think ahead (on some levels not all). For instance, he did not think ahead when it came to things like collaborations; but he did think ahead enough to plan his own death. He didn't worry about the pain so much; just the fact that he wanted to go out with a bang. He wanted to keep writing music for that final gem we know as Innuendo. He even knew he wanted a follow up which eventually became Made in Heaven.
So there you have it. If you disagree you disagree. We all have our own ideas and opinions.

John S Stuart wrote: That's Freddie for yah's. Great musician. Sh*t philospher.I agree.
Its a cute sentiment but it doesn't really mean anything when you consider that you'd better make the most of today because you may not be around tomorrow.
But of course I just want to dance like there's no tomorrow.
|I always thought that he meant Fucking as in sex.
So he wanted sex today, because it was tomorrow. Which doesn't make sense at all. And in my mind should be 'Fuck today, live tomorrow'.
But if you see it like 'Fuck today, cause I live for the future" then I understand it.
I stand corrected
|It's quite similar to Jim Steinman's 'it doesn't matter what we lose, it only matters what we're going to find'. Because 'what we lose' is in preset (hence, today) and 'what we're going to find' is going-to future (tomorrow).|
|First of all, I don't think he really put much thought into this quote because he really just randomly says it off the top of his head as a funny answer to the question. That being said, who knows if he really believed what he was saying or if he messed up what he was trying to say, or even just joking.
Anyway, I understand the meaning to the original quote: "Fuck today, it's tomorrow". Like other people said, it basically means fuck today if you're having a bad day or if it's not going great, because tomorrow is coming quickly and you can restart it all then. Kind of like saying "live for tomorrow" or "tomorrow brings another day". I like the quote as it is and even if he didn't mean it that way, I do find it inspiring.
However, I actually prefer the backwards version of the quote. "Fuck tomorrow, it's today". I think that way just makes a lot more sense and it's really smart and inspiring. It basically means to live in the moment. Stop worrying about tomorrow, fuck tomorrow- because right now it's today.
Both ways are pretty cool and unlike whoever said Freddie was a "shit philosopher", I actually love Freddie's quotes and I think he was brilliant and beautiful and he inspires me every day. :)

|I'd say that he has started to 'fuck today' and all of the sudden 'it's tomorrow'. Fred had stamina or he fucked really late, closer to midnight.|
|Surely the quote is about deferred gratification. If I work hard or study hard today,then tomorrow my rewards will be greater. If I mess around today, then tomorrow I will reap nothing. The Pink Floyd song "Time" highlights this > "Then one day you realise ten years have got behind you, noone told you when to run, you missed the starting gun!"|
|In order to really live in the moment you have to somehow organise beforehands.
Freddie was highly motivated always coming up with grandiose ideas plus pussing the limits.
The thing is, he was in the position to make them true.But the rush you get from planing your "next step" often surpasses the actuall "making it true" of it.
"When your problems seem like mountains
You feel the need to find some answers
You can leave them for another day
Don't try so hard"
'Sometimes I feel nobody gives me no warning
Find my head is always up in the clouds in a dreamworld'
Therefore the quote quite fits his personality i think
|Wasn't it "let's fuck today until it's tomorrow"? That sounds exactly like late-'70s-early-'80s Freddie to me!|
|It kinda make sense if you think about music - you "have to" be one step ahead. My thoughts, of course(!), I don't remember the context.|
