#MM: It's a Fanta Sea


The mysterious masterpiece Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen has always been one of my favorites. In researching the meaning of its lyrics, analysts suspect the song relates to composer Freddie Mercury's personal life. He grew up in a highly religious Zoroastrian family which did not accept what he became––gay. Especially in the 1970s, to be homosexual in his family was to make his mother cry. The man he killed was himself by not being what he was raised to be. Some think the pain relates to AIDS, which eventually led to his death; however, the disease was too unknown at the time. When people asked Freddie Mercury what his lyrics meant, he said, "I don't know."

I feel sorry for people with life styles that their family will not accept. A friend of mine has a transgender child. She has been beautifully accepting of him as has everyone else in his life. Maybe we are finally arriving.

I think that it is often a problem of people being too judgmental - my mom is one who would never accept anyone that doesn't have her same ridiculously insane set of beliefs. It's actually very sad and those people (like my mom) are the ones who ultimately miss out on some really incredible people!!

One of the best songs of all time! Such a tragic loss of a great talent.

Belle Haup said...

I always wondered about that song too - its so hauntingly beautiful I always thought. Maybe something did happen on 2012 and the planet's consciousness is rising - at least I hope so. I can only imagine how he suffered. Great song. Thanks for the interpretation.

That is one of my absolute FAVORITE songs - I never knew the history behind it! Poor Freddy.

Thanks for the dance - have a great week! :)

Nice post Joyce, it was one of my favourites too it's a shame because the medication now is so much more advanced to control it.
One of my best friends for years from the 70s onwards was transgender female to male (who has sadly passed)it was never an issue with anyone even my parents thought the world of him.

Have a tanfastic week Joyce ;-)

I just burst out laughing at that fanta sea picture. That is beyond awesome.

Pat Hatt said...

Yeah many do seem to be more accepting, hopefully it is a continuing trend

I've never read anything on the lyrics and how they should be analyzed. I can't imagine not accepting my child (grown or not) for any reason.

I really find it sad that people are so not accepting of others life styles. The way I see it everyone has a right to be who they are as long as they are not pushing others to change for them.

Marie Moody said...

I heard that they used four different places/studios to record this song. What a project, but the talent is just phenomenal in each & every one of these young men. Thanks for sharing & joining us today! Have a rockin' week!

One of the greatest songs ever. Hands.Down.
And I think in about 20 or so years from now, we will be absolutely ashamed at how we denied certain "class" of people basic human rights.

It's more than even being judgemental: it's forcing your belief/moral system unto anothers' free will. Last time I checked, God hadn't taken away Free Will yet --- dont' see why we think we are so special that we can.

This is quite tune that was done very well. Very top talent.

It is sad when a child grown or small is not given love.

Linda Blatchford said...

I like that song too. Didn't know about the rest of the story. Sad to learn.

Veronica Lee said...

I too, feel sorry for people whose family are not supportive of their life styles. Great post, Joyce.

Mike Golch said...

Loved this one,I doubt if there will be another Freddie Mercury that was this good,May He Rest In Eternal Peace.

I've heard Brian and Roger talk about this song and how dear it was to Freddie. He was an amazing talent and I know I will be sending up a prayer to him when I see Queen perform next week. I know Freddie will be smiling down on the band and sending his blessing to Adam.

I also pray we will one day be a united nation under God not one that separates based on religion, race or sexuality. We all should love one another for our uniqueness not hate for our differences.

Beautiful post and thanks for the dance.
