is anybody out there?

It's a god-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mother is yelling "No"
And her daddy has told her to go

But her friend is nowhere to be seen
And she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen

But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause she's lived it ten times or more
And it's about to be lived again
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show

Take a look at the lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It's on America's tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
And the workers have struck for fame
'Cause Lenin's on sale again

See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns

But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show

Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?





Whenever I hear this song, it reminds me of where I came from. I'm glad I don't live among the cavemen anymore.

Writer's Block: Killer Queen

What's your favorite Queen song, and why?
I want to start writing again, and this is as good a way as any.

My favorite Queen song is definitely 'Killer Queen.' Although I was unfamiliar with the song until the past few years, I loved it the first time I heard it. 'Killer Queen' is the epitome of glam rock. The lyrics include elements of style, glamour, and sexuality. Upon hearing this song, the listener isn't sure whether to admire or condemn the woman Freddie Mercury sings about. She sounds like a high-class prostitute, the kind who doesn't give a damn what other people think and lives life (literally) by the seat of her pants. Yet she has everything under control. He mentions Marie Antoinette, perfume from Paris, Moet, geishas, JFK, and caviar. The lyrics simply reek of the kind of lifestyle most will never achieve. The guitar sound in this song has classical elements thrown in with raunchy glam rock chords, and Freddie Mercury's voice is as seductive as ever. 'Killer Queen' stands alone amongst Queen's catalog of songs. As an added bonus - it's almost impossible to sing it on Rock Band. If you consider yourself a singer, challenge yourself with it sometime. You'll come away with a new respect for that unitard-wearing, lanky, buck-toothed lead singer from one of the most iconic rock bands of the 70s and 80s.
