2561 : Farrokh Bulsara redux

I have been listening to Queen for over 20 years and I have never quite managed to isolate what is it about this music, that just gets me going.

Like listening to "Somebody to Love" - as I write this, I cannot help be swayed by the moody blues and the lovely riffs, and of course the crazy vocals - and yet the lyrics are plebian, the voice a typical British gruffness, the chorous so 1950s, the orchestration so garage band ish and yet.....when they all come together, the result is pure addiction.

I fell for Queen the first time about 20 years ago, on a road trip, when I heard them on repeat....and that love affair never ended.

If I live for another 20, I can bet to myself that I will still continue to love Queen, Freddie Mercury and of course Farrokh Bulsara.

"I am falling in love, falling in love for the first time, and this time I know its for real."
".......but life still goes on....."
