Bohemian Rhapsody

Freddie Mercury

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
A little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me, to me

Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away
Mama, oooh
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time
Goodbye everybody - I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, oooh - (anyway the wind blows)
I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

I see a little silhouette of a man
Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning - very very frightening me
Gallileo, Gallileo,
Gallileo, Gallileo,
Gallileo Figaro - magnifico -oh oh ohoh

But I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstruosity
Easy come easy go - will you let me go?
Bismillah! No - we will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let me go
Will not let you go - let me go (never, never)
Never let you go - let me go
Never let me go - ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
For me, for me

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh baby - can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters - nothing really matters to me

Anyway the wind blows...

"Bohemian Rhapsody"
Copertina del singolo "Bohemian Rhapsody" (1975)

NOTE: Tratto dall'album "A Night At The Opera", 1975. Il singolo raggiunse il 1° posto nelle classifiche inglesi, ove rimase per 9 settimane consecutive.
Venne ripubblicato nel 1991 in un singolo dal doppio lato A (con "These Are The Days Of Our Lives"), guadagnando nuovamente il primato in classifica (cosa mai accaduta prima di allora per un singolo ri-pubblicato).
Fu inoltre il primo brano in assoluto a poter usufruire di un videoclip promozionale.
Per questo tour, le parti vocali sono tratte da un vecchio concerto dei Queen, per cui la voce è quella di Mercury, fra l'altro visibile grazie ad uno schermo piazzato dietro al palco. Gli altri musicisti suonano dal vivo, e dopo la parte operistica, Paul Rodgers torna protagonista cantando il finale rock del brano.
