If you wanted me to talk to you, Kev, all you had to do was ask. You didn't need to post Queen lyrics.

But I will keep going . . .

Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.

Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see,

*Belts out*

I'm just a poor boy
I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
Little high, little low
Any way the wind blows
Doesn't really matter to me
To me.

Hmmm... Aldo Nova came to mind for me... (but I'm old)

This is what I wanted. Sigh. It's heart aching, ain't it. I was at a table about 3 years ago... with fellow family members. We were playing cards. I started with those two lines and we went spontaneously around the table until the last word was sung... at times singing the best parts together. It's such a wonderfully melancholy song.

And, yes, Erin... seeing you triggered it today....

Sorry for the non-musical interlude. Continue...

Mama, I just killed a man

Put a gun up to his head, pulled the trigger, now he's dead, oh, mommaaaaa....

Greatest song ever written.

Momma... oooooooo... didn't mean to make you cry. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irp8CNj9qBI)
If I'm not back this time tomorrow... carry on. Carry on...

Nothing really matters...


Too late, my time has come
Send shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time

Good bye everybody
I've gotta go...

(Love this song, *sigh*)

Saw Queen in concert - twice. One was the We Are The Champions tour and the second, I don't remember.
That was a loooonnnggg time ago.
Freddy Mercury was dazzling

I see a little silhouetto of a man...

Is this just fantasy?As soon as I wake up from this dream of being a 53 year old systems analyst and children's book author and return to my waking life as an animated cartoon wolf who works in the lingerie department at the Toontown Macy's where Jessica Rabbit and Betty Boop shop, I'll get to work on your question. After dinner, that is.

Is this just fantasy?

All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

Be here now. Namaste, Daddy-O.

It's all in your silly little head. Now pull the covers up and go sleepy-bye. No more scarey bedtime stories.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v260/matera/chessie.gif

But Im just a poor boy and nobody loves me-
Hes just a poor boy from a poor family-
Spare him his life from this monstrosity-
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
Will not let you go let me go
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-cant do this to me baby-
Just gotta get out-just gotta get right outta here-

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters-,nothing really matters to me,

Any way the wind blows....
