Line(s) of the Day #BohemianRhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody film

John Reid: So, tell me. What makes Queen any different from all of the other wannabe rockstars I meet?
Freddie Mercury: Tell you what it is, Mr. Reid. Now we’re four misfits who don’t belong together, we’re playing for the other misfits. They’re the outcasts, right at the back of the room. We’re pretty sure they don’t belong either. We belong to them.

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

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

Line(s) of the Day #Innuendo

Queen Innuendo

While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand
While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land
While there’s a wind and the stars and the rainbow
Till the mountains crumble into the plain
Oh yes we’ll keep on tryin

The opening lyrics from the album title track ‘Innuendo’ (1991) from the British band Queen. The song is actually longer than the song ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ which was itself six minutes long.

Sometimes I get the feelin’
I was back in the old days – long ago
When we were kids when we were young
Things seemed so perfect – you know

Taken from the double A-side single ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘These are the Days of our Lives’ by Queen (1991), from the album ‘Innunedo’
