On A Queen Kick

Blog

I really don't know why, but Queen is really resonating with me as of late.

AAAAAAAAH, because of the movie coming out! It is in everyone's consciousness. Okay then, mystery solved. Thank goodness.

The lyrics in particular resonating the last couple months (yeah, ear worms lasting months, that's not annoying, delightful, frustrating):

It ain't much I'm asking, I heard him say
Gotta find me a future move out of my way

There are plenty of ways that you can hurt a man
And bring him to the ground.
You can beat him, you can cheat him
You can treat him bad and leave him when he's down.

But I'm ready, yes, I'm ready for you,
I'm standing on my own two feet.
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
Repeating to the sound of the beat oh yeah

I'm burnin' through the sky, yeah
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm traveling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic man out of you

Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time
I'm having a ball
Don't stop me now
If you wanna have a good time, just give me a call
Don't stop me now ('cause I'm having a good time)
Don't stop me now (yes, I'm havin' a good time)
I don't want to stop at all

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming let me out

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love one more chance?
Why can't we give love give love give love?
Give love give love give love give love give love
Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way
Of caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves under pressure
Under pressure pressure

I swear good music makes for amazing poetry.
