Line(s) of the Day #I’mGoingSlightlyMad

Queen Im Going Slightly Mad

I’m one card short of a full deck
I’m not quite the shilling
One wave short of a shipwreck
I’m not at my usual top billing

Taken from the fantastically quirky song I’m Going Slightly Mad from Queen’s fourteenth studio album Innuendo (1991).

      • Off the top of my head:
        1. Bohemian Rhapsody
        2. I’m Going Slightly Mad
        3. Hammer to Fall
        4. Stone Cold Crazy
        5. One Year of Love (cheesy, but I don’t care)
        I’m not too familiar with all their videos even though I hear their collection is one of the best. I liked “These Are The Days of Our Lives” for bittersweet reasons along with Freddie’s cat vest.

      • I’ve been thinking about mine. As well as These are the days of our Lives and Innuendo (which I have already quoted on the blog), I’d have You Don’t Fool Me, Another One Bites the Dust and Somebody to Love. I love Bohemian Rhapsody and I’m Going Slightly Mad but I just can’t fit them into a Top 10. And think of the ones not included. I want to Break Free, Don’t Stop Me Now, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Heaven for Everyone…

      • It’s a very moving video, though upsetting to see in other ways. If you haven’t seen it, I really do recommend the video to Innuendo too.

    • That’s some description haha. Some of the other lyrics really are funny too.
      “I’m knitting with only one needle”, “I’m driving only three wheels these days” and “You’re missing that one final screw” are just brilliant.

  1. I loved that whole album! I was in the Navy, originally stationed in Oakland, California. Then I was shipped out to the Gulf War for the entire duration of the war. The day we got back home, the first thing I did was go to a music store. I bought Innuendo and Edge of the Century by Styx.
