Dodgy stuff. In TYMD there is a lyric that says “it’s gottta be tonight, my LITTLE SCHOOL-BABE”.
Are we comfortable with that? Should it be called out?
I mention it because we haven’t heard a view on recent celeb sex-scandals from our Queen people.
It’s a Brian May (exclusively heterosexual as far as I’m aware) lyric and suggests masculine power-based domination.
Discuss?

In the UK the legal age for sexual consent (and marriage) is 16.

Considering one can stay on at school until they are 18; it is very common to find 16+ pupils engaged in sexual relationships.
That has always been the case, even when the song was written.

So if she is over 16, and still at school - what is the problem?


(Unlike David Bowie for example who had a predilection for 14 year old girls; Now that IS paedophilia whatever way you look at it!)

PS: Don't shoot the messenger. Just Google "David Bowie" and ""Paedophilia". It's not that hard!

Brian is Nostradamus and this is foretelling of the coming of Roy Moore.

In Germany 14 years is okay for sex ( if the parents didn`t vetoing it)
And 14 years is "Hebephilia" actually ;)

1) WHAT has "gotta be tonight"? Not clear it's sex.

2) I always took "boiling up inside" as anger. Not anything else.

And, no, I'm not naïve.

Google any notable rock star and the dreaded P word and you'll get results.

I assume John is a Jimmy Page fan so as not to give that as an example?

Yes Dyson; I am a huge Zeppelin fan - but I have a personal take on it.

As human beings we all suffer from cognitive dissonance to some degree. I get over mine in that I can seperate art from the creator. This I call the baker syndrome.

Simply, I want to buy a sticky bun for my morning coffee. The olde bakery I buy my buns has the best pastries in town. Do I really care about the baker's personal life? Do I really care about the baker's past? Well no actually! I am quite happy to shop there because I enjoy the product - not the creator.

In otherwords, Kevin Spacey "may" be an ars*hole in real life, but that does not invalidate "Unusual Suspects" or "House of Cards".
Jimmy Page could well be a sexual preditor and as such needs to face criminal charges; but that does not invalidate "Stairway to Heaven" as a great piece of music.
If that WAS to be the case, there would be no art at all surviving beyond the middle ages, and as for music, anyone jumping on borad the Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis or Chuck Berry bandwagon?

I never really understood the BBC stance on Gary Glitter.

Yes. Without any shadow of doubt Glitter deserves to be in prison.
But does that mean his music is any less valid than that of the Sex Pistols, Jim Gordon, Joe Meek or Phil Spector? After all, they are all convicted killers (murderers if you will) and yet the BBC still play their music without any conscience.

"Want to be in my gang" anyone?

Why did anyone even entertain the thought, and play along with the OP?

We can understand the lyrics like thoughts from a young boy or a teenager, about the same age of the girl he is referring to. I don't see any problem in that.

Pretty sure I read somewhere Brian wrote part of it as a teen (currently I do not have the source so don't ask!) and it's simply about a teen relationship. Not a nonce anthem haha

Greek men had sexual relationships with underage boys a scant 2000 years ago. Should I avoid Greece as a holiday destination? Please advise.
