Legendary rock band Queen has been inspiring millions since their London formation in 1970. With the charismatic, musical genius front man born Farrokh Bulsara — aka Freddie Mercury — (Lead vocals, piano), Brian May (Vocals, Guitar), John Deacon (Vocals, Bass) and Drummer Roger Taylor (Vocals, Drums).
Queen has represented musical vision and freedom through their pioneering and creative approaches to composition and poetic, on-point song lyrics. The band continues to earn new fans of all ages and backgrounds 48 years after their initial formation.
It has been a Bohemian Rhapsody fever here in this country. As a fans of Queen myself, since 1982, I’m posting these photos of our 1963 VW Beetle accompanied by quotes taken from Queen’s songs, lyrics or a comment.
I’m in Love with My Car
(Writer & vocal: Roger Taylor, album: A Night at the Opera, 1975)
Is this the real life? Or this is just fantasy?
(The first lyrics from song Bohemian Rhapsody, album: A Night at the Opera, 1975).
“Can anybody find me somebody to love?…”
(A lyrics from song Somebody to Love, album A Day at the Races, 1976).
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
(Album: The Game, 1980).
Loneliness is my hiding place. Breast feeding myself…
(A lyrics from song Life is Real (Song for Lennon), album: Hot Space, 1982, written by Freddie as dedication to John Lennon’s death).
Fat Bottomed Girls, you make the rockin’ world go ’round…
(A lyrics from song Fat Bottomed Girls, album Jazz, 1978).
“Don’t stop me now, I’m having such a good time…”
(A lyrics from song Don’t Stop Me Now, album Jazz, 1978).
‘She’s a Killer Queen. Gunpowder, gelatin, Dynamite with a laser beam.
Guaranteed to blow your mind…”
(A lyrics from song Killer Queen, album Sheer Heart Attack, 1974).
“Boredom is the biggest disease in the world, darling…”
Another one bites the dust
(Album: The Game, 1980).
He is the Hitman, the great pretender, Mr. Bad Guy, just a poor boy, the invisible man.
He’s Freddie Mercury.
“Las palabras de amor. Let me hear the words of love…”
(A lyrics from song Las Palabras de Amor, album Hot Space, 1982).
“God knows I want to break free…”
(A lyrics from song I Want to Break Free, album The Works, 1984).
“Queen songs are not about the life of a rock star – they tend to be about the lives of normal people, which is why I think the songs connect so much with every generation…”
Who wants to live forever
(Album: A Kind of Magic, 1986).
“Spread your little wings and fly away..”
(A lyrics from song Spread Your Wings, album News of the World, 1977).
“I used to take a nap in a van & listen to Queen.
Over & over again, & drained the battery in the van.
Than we’d be stuck. That happened a few times.
We’d be stuck with a dead battery because I’d listened to Queen too much…”
