Queen songs have this amazing quality. I'm not talking about Freddie's blessed pipes or the awe-inspiring and kick-ass melodies. I'm after the words. Which song by Queen (or any solo song)do you identify with the most? I'm not asking for your favourite song. I'm asking you to go deeper. Think about what a song says, and how you think that reflects you and/or the world around you.

Well... favortie songs change every week...
You mean what song affects you the most ?
Well I have to say Who Wants To Live Forever.
It's not just that the song is beautful, it's something else as well...
I can't describe the feeling but I think I saw that video years ago. When I was young and didn't know what Queen was. I just relized that when I saw the video for the first time (I thought) And when the part of the song where Brian is playing in the middle of the orchestra and stands up....
I have had that memory of this song for years and didn't know where it came from. I think if I had knew what song that was and was performed by who I had been a fan already back then. But I did discover Queen last August...
This song just made me felt so good... I don't know, well.. some music has that affect on me.
And all that songs are made by Queen.
That's just a odd, but good, feeling I have and will always have.
I hope I understood your question right and
answered it right :S :) :o)
You're my best friend has always been close to me. I think of someone and when i love them, that song just says it all. Who wants to live forever kicks me off when im in a sad mood. Spread your wings gave me a subliminal message that i should try and get away from things.
I think I know what you mean. The good thing is that you always have your own interpretation (Like BoRhap being about AIDS 'n stuff like that).
Well, years ago I looooved White Queen because it was such a nice description of a crush I had. It was about a girl I knew from a disco, she always looked sad, and I was so in love with her. Sadly, she never looked at me. I only went to that stupid disco because of her. And everytime I saw her it was like 'the white Queen walks and the night grows pale.'
There are many more, but the nicest moment was in school, when Hammer to Fall was the anthem of my friends and me whenever we saw girls with huge jugs.(because the girl with the biggest jugs had "Hammer" as surname.) So, whenever one of us shouted HAMMER TO FALL, we knew there was nice cleavage in the area.
If you're meaning the lyrics then I think that's Too Much Love Will Kill You. F.x:
"Too much love will kill you, just as sure as none at all"
It's like he's saying that it's bad to love two (or more) persons, but it's as bad to love no-one...
I've always liked this song because of that.
I think I identify with Who Wants To Live Forever, because lately I've been thinking about whether it's better to have someone and lose them or to have never loved them at all. I still haven't actually decided, though.
Oh, there are so many... hm. For now, I'll just say these:
Who Wants To Live Forever
Don't Stop Me Now
Somebody To Love
These Are The Days of Our Lives
No-one But You
Thank God It's Christmas
Hammer To Fall
Too Much Love Will Kill You
"More soon to come, folks, so stay tuned! Same time, same channel, same old network..."
A long time ago it was "In On Seven Days" because the exact same thing happened to me on vacation. Of course, then I realized that she was just kind of slutty.
I'd probably have to go with "It's Late."

don't worry - i work in "HM corrective system" - i know all about your Home Detention Curfew - those ankle braclets can be fooled you know - but you have to stick your leg in the freezer for an hour - just to get two hours out of curfew without being detected
Wow, this is a great topic.
I like some of the comments made here.
I'd have to say the one I relate to deep down is Teo Toriatte.
"When I'm gone, no need to wonder if I ever think of you.
The same moon shines, the same wind blows
For both of us and time is but a paper moon"
"Just close your pretty eyes and you can be with me"
It reminds me of a close friend who I worked with, and we had a very deep relationship. I was in love with him, but I didn't realize how deep until I'd lost him. He loved me too, but not really in the same way. We used to talk for hours, he was like the first person whom I could really talk to on a deeper level. I always remember him when I hear that song and wonder if he still thinks of me. (He also told me I had beautiful eyes, which is in the song too.)
For me, it's "Days of Our Lives", and Freddie singing "I still love you..." at the end, knowing full well he was dying. Gets me every time.
I close my eyes and think about all of the great times with Queen music through the years.
