Who Wants To Live Forever?

There's no time for us... There's no place for us... What is this thing that builds our dreams yet slips away from us?...

Who wants to live forever? Who wants to live forever?

Fitting words Freddie.

Bands nowadays (especially Filipino bands..sad to say) bore me to death.. I have honestly been sick to the point of inducing auditory hemmorhage just to block out those infernal sounds they coin "music".. WTF?! Sure I would "like" one or two of their songs. But as for the rest of their repertoire.. I could hardly care less if they were forgotten in the annals of music history.. never to be heard from again.

Only one band has broken this stereotype for me. Again, sad to say, it's not a Filipino band. It's actually on the other side of the world. In that little island we call Great Britain. The great and eternal Queen!

GAD!! I am suffering from major Queen-addiction these past few days!!I have honestly scoured the recesses of YouTube for their live concert videos and have watched them OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

For some reason, Queen's songs are always poignant and magical. The fantasy is always alive and there is a massive need to interpret their usually cryptic and mysterious lyrics(seriously, WTF does Scarramouoch mean?).

And the people love them. In their 1986 concert, they filled the whole Wembley Arena in London. It looked like you couldn't drop a needle in that pit of carbon entities all jumping up and down to the beat of We Will Rock You or Under Pressure.


Even though Freddie Mercury (may he rest in peace) has a massively fugly overbite, HE IS SO FUCKIN' HOT!!!

But when he wore his hair long... he kinda looked like a tranny... hahahahahahahahahaha..

And my fave song of all.. No other than the legendary Bohemian Rhapsody..It honestly makes my hair raise.. awooo!

Freddie.. wherever you are... YOU ROCK!! I loove your costumes!!! Leotards.. capes..crowns.. WOW!! GLAM ROCK FASHION!! As for Brian May though.. he looks like a mess slouching in that oversized jacket... tsk tsk.. hehehehehehe
