Thanks for reminding me of this hauntingly beautiful song. A true hidden gem among Brian's oeuvre.

It is a hidden gem full of emotion, definitely one of the best songs that Brian May ever wrote.

I didn't read it, I was just getting clarity as to the level of self-promotion involved.

May your readership increase exponentially...

What's with the level of snarkiness on this site? Jeez. A guy posts something about a Brian May song, a thoughful, brief entry.

Maybe he could have written 'Here is a link to a recent blog post I WROTE on MY BLOG about Brian May's wonderful song Dream Of Thee.'

Is there something wrong with someone 'promoting' their blog with an 'on-topic' article about a musician that was part of a band I thought most people came to this site to read about?

I hadn't thought of that song in some time, always loved it. I read the post and listened to the song again and loved it once more. Anything wrong with that?

I agree. As a blogger it seems to me entirely fair to point to a blog post of one's own - if it's germane.

(Very few of mine ARE, as it happens.)

If "I hope you get lots of readers" is snarky, I'm more than happy to desist...

bucsateflon commenting 'old song'

and yes 'I didn't read it, I was just getting clarity as to the level of self-promotion involved. May your readership increase exponentially... ' came across to me as snide.

If that wasn't your intention my apologies.

I saw that the first part could be seen that way, so added the second.

Really regretting it now.

That was my interpretation too that it came across as snarky
