Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Because I used Bohemian Rhapsody for my Battle of the Bands post (CLICK HERE to see the post and vote if you like), I think it prudent to post a version of the song with the lyrics. For years, I wasn't sure what the heck Queen was singing.
Thank you, God, for sending someone other than Al Gore to invent the internet so we can look up lyrics.
I read online, perhaps on all-knowing Wikipedia, that as Queen became increasingly successful, Freddie Mercury played the piano less, although he was a proficient pianist. The reason: He was afraid he'd make a mistake. He preferred strutting around the stage to rouse (not arouse) the audience.
I've never feared making mistakes on the piano, but I've never had thousands of people cheering me on. Perhaps now is a good time to start. Yay me!
Infinities of love,
