This has been bugging me for a quarter of a century now....

At 1:54 - What is Brian saying? "Look at what happened to me! This is [unintelligible echo]"

SOMEONE out there knows... and I'll feel like a fool once it's pointed out to me, but I can not for the life of me decipher what he hollers out! help!

Look what happens man
This is after the Russe adieux

French meaning the "Russian leaves". Which doesn't make sense on it's own, but if we assume the Main character's in the song are British, and they had a Russian lodger who recently left making the man and woman question their marriage, then it all fits into place.

I thought he said "I'm not gonna lose the tune".

It's a great site to find transcriptions for all Queen related albums. It's just a bit tricky to use to begin with.

You know in all seriousness i think it does sound more like "the blues in June" than "Music and Tunes".
