Aw, geez, any specific question?
I'm tired, I'm hurting, I'm worried sick about my friend.
It's a fun little thing.

Anybody? Explain it for me. I'm tagging out for a while.

Wildflower,

2nd line of 4th stanza of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody

Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the fandango
(I dare you not to recite the next line. Double dog dare you.. Hahahaha. You did. You did. You started reciting the song, didn't you. hahahahaha)

And now I have that whole song running through my head, again. Along with the puppet show that I saw based on the song, again. And I am even bobbing my head in time with the song running through my head while remembering the puppet show, again.

Gallileo, Gallileo,
Gallileo, Gallileo,
Gallileo Figaro - magnifico........

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

This is why everyone thinks white people have no rhythm.

Andrew said...

And now it's been over 4 hours and I'm still humming that song. And the voices in my head are singing it, in harmony and counter-harmony.

Thanks, Angel. Thanks so very much.

Queen. One of the great studio bands. Their concerts, not so much.

Any way the wind blowssssss....

"Queen"/????????

Wildflower

Andrew said...

Queen. British band from the 70's.

Noted for great hits like:

We will Rock You
We are the Champions
Another One Bites the Dust
Fat Bottomed Girls
Killer Queen
Don't Stop Me Now
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
You're My Best Friend
Under Pressure

Great singing from a gay Turk and some really good blokes.

If you haven't heard any of these songs, well, look them up. Stay away from the concert versions and just stick with the studio recordings.

Have you ever watched 'Revenge of the Nerds' (the movie)? 'We Are the Champions' is played when the nerds finally get their revenge.

Champions was also used at the RNC during Donald Trump's entrance to introduce his wife (and the surviving band members had a conniption fit about it, but he paid for the rights to use, so stuff them, stupid limies.)

Never heard of Queen? Next thing you'll say is you never heard of Electric Light Orchestra. ZOMG. Squeeeeeeee. Loves me some ELO!!!

And, Angel, it's 2:49 in the morning and that song is still, still going through my mind. I think my guardian angel wrangled a chorus of other angels to harmonize along with my personalities, and the sleeping wife and snoring Rottweiler are frustrated with my verbal outbursts and finger-dancing.

Damned good tune.

If this keeps up I'll have to break out the emergency tune breaker, the dreaded... 'The Girl From Impanema'...

Ah, the puppets, the puppets are singing 'Thunderbolt and Lightning' Oh, no, the great white whale and the mermaid and William the Conqueror and Punch and Judy are going boingo in my head. (Okay, I don't do alcohol much, but it was a really good puppet show with about 200 drunken SCAdians really vibing to the music in an overly hot hall and Osric was just killing it and . . . Okay, you had to be there, but trust me, it was a magical moment made weirder by the alcohol buzz I was getting from breathing everyone's fumes.)

What, the song is starting again and the characters from the Bayeaux Tapestry are joining in? WTF? Figures that pussy Harold is a soprano. (And I am doing this wide awake and not on any drugs. Last time I had mind fantasies while awake like this was when I was tripping on some really bad... allergy medicine (I think I was mainlining full-strength Actifed liquid along with Pyrabenzamine and 4 Sudafed at a time and the oriental rug sucked me into its pattern and the pattern was chasing me...)

Andrew said...

Just as a clarification to the last paragraph above: The drugs I was on were all totally legal and I was following the prescription exactly as my Allergist prescribed. Really bad allergies. Really, really bad allergies. The late 70's sucked for me and my nose and skin. Made worse by full braces and headgear. Yikes!

And then they discovered Actifed interacts badly with just about all other allergy meds, that Pyrabenzamine will kill you by stopping your heart, and Sudafed in the amounts I was taking will blow your heart up like an M80 in an orange.

You all had illegal drugs to fuck you up. Me, I did it legally. Still remember the antibiotic that had me bleeding out of my pores. That was a trippy experience, let me tell you.

Argh! That song, it overwrote Girl from Impanema. Angel, what have you done to me? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

Granny said...

Well nobody ever said she was your guardian angel did they?
Love yez girl.

RabidAlien said...

Heh. This 3 year old Millie has mastered Taste In Music. We'll work on lyrics later.

Volfram said...

To build on Andrew's reviews, if you haven't heard of Queen, you've clearly been living under a rock for the past 50 years. I would like to imagine that Freddy Mercury was the musician equivalent of Breitbart's Milo Yiannopulous.

JJ said...

Whenever I hear that I cant help but think of Wayne's World.

I am impervious to song worms, the voices in my head won't allow it.

Bogdaddy said...

There was another song that immediately came to mind and that was "Chick-A-Boom ( Don't Ya Jes' Love It )"

Whatever you do, don’t go there if you’re prone to earworms. I am. I’m sorry...

J Bogan said...

Heck, I want Millie to re write the rest of the song...

Andrew said...

Wildflower,

This is a bagpipe group playing the Queen song "We will Rock You."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8KC0GO8VvY

And here's Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" on bagpipe (actually a ulluian pipe, but...)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AdxdjFm3tI

If you are a fan of actual musicality in music, versus what is most rock music, please check out Queen. Very lyrical, studio cuts use a variety of instruments and techniques.

These other groups are great musically

Kansas
Electric Light Orchestra (okay, I just really like them)

For flute music check out Jethro Tull

For loud music, try Gwar. Especially the videos.
Or Mongolian Throat Singing (no, really, kinda cool tunes)
