Yes. He wrote it while playing with his huge telescope up a hill.

Disgusting.

I always understood this song like this:a boy loves girl very much but her parents don't like him and don't approve their relationship.He wants to take her to a crazy party but understands that his family will never accept him but he still tries and imagines that everything would be ok. if her family somehow disappeared at least one night.

Everyone can understand the song in its own way.

^ I wonder if that verse in FBG alludes to an incident in Freddie's upbringing?

More likely Brian's upbringing ...

Freddie's upbringing was at St Peter's, an all boys school in Panchgani India ... not too many big fat nannies there.

Well, when i wrote that post it was early in the morning after a few drinks so not to be taken TOO seriously.
However, reading the responses, I suppose there are questions. Yes, it may be written from a 'schoolboy' point of view but it is still definitely written and performed by adults (sexuality of performer notwithstanding).

John S Stuart makes the good point that if his baker makes good buns they are still good buns even if the baker is a paedophile. But the analogy doesn't hold. The baker's buns do not promote paedophilia whereas it is arguable that TYMD does. Same with Gary Glitter. I am not aware that any of his songs actively advocated sex with kids so why do the BBC ban on his music?

'Tie Your Mother Down' 'sounds' like an adult rocker asking a youngster, maybe groupie, to ignore parental warnings. Yes, you can argue the schoolboy point of view but we all know the industry in the 70's.

Talk of 'Greeks' is irrelevant. This is about modern day laws.

The church is also irrelevant for a million reasons (not least because sexual minorities have historically joined their ranks to avoid persecution - ('Your Kevin not married yet?,No, he's joining the church).

My favourite post is Dyson's - 'I'm all horny now'.



No Freddie, No John.....No Queen

There are a few that sound like they might - although hindsight is 20 20 of course.
