This already gives us so much insight into how he had been feeling.
But at this time- as far as we know, he hadn't been in any male relationships.
Because he chose a cover version, 'I Shot The Sheriff', by introducing reggae music to the world and released as a single and became a big hit at that time. What he followed was that he paid attention to the song itself 'I Shot the Sheriff', especially the lyrics of the song, I think. Because the lyrics was very impressive and he wanted to write a song like this. This theme of no one caring about him, is not only a huge theme in the song- but also in Freddie''s real life.
The week it is was at #2, the #1 record was "Jump" by Kris Kross... Maybe the outside story was about an excecution- I think that's very clear, at least in the "mama" section. Obviously I'm not Freddie, but I can share with you a few facts that I have researched, and they can allow one to infer the meaning of this very complex song.. He had been dating Mary Austin for give or take 6 years.
Also peaked at #1 in the Netherlands, New Zealand, Belgium, and their native U. It re-entered the Top 100 on March 15th, 1992 and peaked at #2 (for 1 week) on May 3rd and stayed on the Top 100 for 16 weeks... You can just say it was about a simple excecution- that has nothing to do with Freddie.
On May 1st, 1976 it reached #1 (for 2 weeks) on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart... It meant something- no one can be sure of what, but it had to of meant something.
On December 28th, 1975, "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on April 18th, 1976 it peaked at #9 (for 2 weeks) and spent almost a half-year on the Top 100 (24 weeks)... People hav said that he began writing the song at Ealing Art College- which means that it was in his head and he was working on it for a decade at least.
I often wonder what the artists think of these dissections. I was 10 years old and listened to nothing but AM top 40 radio when I first heard this song in 1975, I hated it, but it soon became one of the "top 3 at Ten PM' for about 3 weeks, and by time that was Over, I was looking at music like I never had before, not just to hum along, but to appreciate the lyrics and the imagination of the creators...37 years later I still find something new in this song everytime I listen to it...100 years from now people will look at classic rock the way we now look at Classical music of the late 19th century, and one of the centerpieces will be Bohemian Rhapsody. even though Freddie claimed it was all "nonsense", he was a very modest person.
I read the comments sections on a lot of songs and the "meanings" people come up with can be really creative.
As much as he loved Mary, he was gay- he couldn't deny it.
He was dating women- but on the inside, was most likely not content with his love life.
But those saying its about AIDS, this was in 1975 and according to the website AVERT (the AIDS timeline part)----Western scientists and doctors remain ignorant of the growing epidemic - See more at: (this comes from the 70's section), it wasn't until 81 that docs became aware----so I highly doubt this was about AIDS.
Can't deny, I was first 'toonto get it on prime - to get it on prime time TV! And this is definitely a song I enjoy "any way the wind blows".
Obviously we now know that Freddie was gay, or bisexual.
