Hi MUsic lovers, I think the idea of the lyrics of the song came from the lyrics of the song called 'I Shot The Sheriff' written and sung by Bob Marley in 1973. Put the cat outside last night, But I'll never win the fight. This is just no fun, That cat has gone and thrown me out again! Didn't mean to wake you up, If I'm not back inside before tomorrow, Carrion, Carrion . Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger- now he's dead"Here he can be telling Mary about the affair- but obviously very much in code.
But I think that Freddie wrote a song 'Bohemian' influenced by cover version by Eric Clapton in 1974. He's saying how he "killed" his old innocent self."Mama, life had just begun- but now i've gone and thrown it all away"Still talking to Mary, he says how the old him was still young and he feels like he only just started dating people like Mary- but now he just threw that person away."Mama, ooh- didn't mean to make you cry.."Here he's more emotional and he's trying to apologize to Mary- saying that he really didn't want to hurt her."..
The song was used in the 2 minute plus trailer of the DC Comics movie, Suicide Squad. Most people here are making this song sound like a David Lynch movie! you have a stupid lil simple story, & you make it so complex that people are forced to say, 'oh my, that's so deep!
(musical interlude)So you think Homer Simpson is one funny guy? First, LOVE this song, whatever its about (I have always taken it at face value----dude killed someone, now must face the consequences "any way the wind blows", meaning, no matter how you slice it, the consequence is the same---even though he tried to fight the court and ask for leniency because "he's just a poor boy from a poor family", never really had a shot in life). Mary and him had moved in together, and she loved him. There have also been claims that Freddie had an affair with a man (or men) while dating Mary. But those saying its about AIDS, this was in 1975 and according to the website AVERT (the AIDS timeline part)----Western scientists and doctors remain ignorant of the growing epidemic - See more at: (this comes from the 70's section), it wasn't until 81 that docs became aware----so I highly doubt this was about AIDS. Can't deny, I was first 'toonto get it on prime - to get it on prime time TV! And this is definitely a song I enjoy "any way the wind blows".
