Why Did Freddie Mercury Write Bohemian Rhapsody?

mama I just killed a man...his talking about himself. he killed himself and was reborn as a new spirit, that's the symbolic meaning and Beelzebub works through him.

The most significant of the song "Bohemian Rhapsody" is when Freddie Mercury was living amongst the Arabs in Zanzibar he was listening to Arabic music. And the Arabic musicians were inspired by classical music and opera, which is and was the base of their traditional music. Traditional Arabic music divides into three or four movements just like classical music. That was how Freddy was inspired to write the "Bohemian Rhapsody" in different operatic movements. Therefore, it had to be a longer song. And at that time there was a revolution going on that is why his whole family escaped from Zanzibar. And the lyrics is talking about a young man who killed an Arab man, and now they are going to stone him to death. That is why those Arabs say, "Bismillah", meaning "In the name of Allah". And they do not want to let him go. Now all the Arab people know about this. We know those young writers are uneducated but, we wonder why Brian May did NOT tell the true story behind this song?! That was sad. Althought the Almighty Creator blessed him with that beautiful melody like He drops all the arts, sceince, and discoveries, but he had to mess up his soul at the end and leave this world as a looser in order to live in a dark place for eternity.

Brian May DID write the solo. The quote you give (4:40) is in reference to the guitar riff that happens after the operatic section. The documentary on the official Queen YouTube channel talks about this and confirms that Brian May did write his own solo.

A length of [just under six minutes] for a track in the Album Rock era wasn't "incredible." Yeah, Top 40 radio stations might not play it, but lots of college and indie stations would. Besides, have you checked the running time of Don McLean's "American PIe"...? That was released four years earlier, and got plenty of airplay.

I thought this song is about Mercury going through a ritual with Beelzebub to receive a devil to become the Father of Music like Galileo is the Father of Modern Physics, Father of Observational Astronomy, Father of Scientific Method and Father of Modern Science. Mercury has to perform to the audience like a Scaramouch doing the fandango and he dressed like a Scaramouch at times and a Spanish dancer. Figaro is a Spanish character in French plays, therefore he must play the character of a person like Figaro on stage and be himself off stage. When he shoots a man, he is referring to himself leaving behind his old life for a new life and he is telling his mother what he has done and she must let him go to enter into this new life of darkness. Thunderbolt is a symbol for Zeus and Lightning is a symbol for Lucifer, both Zeus and Lucifer are one in the same and also refer to Beelzebub and the Devil. Magnifico means a very important powerful person and Mercury is magnifico in his work, performance, music and lyrics. I could be wrong.

WRONG!! Brain May wrote the SOLO Freddie wrote the rock riff. The oprra section is JUDGEMENT. Galileo Figaro Magnifico means Jesus (galileo) name be praised. Bismilla (sp?) is Freddies sneaky reference to Islam. Zoroastrians were chased out of Zamzibar due to muslim oppression. The rock section is Freddie saying to God and the Devil: Fuck this. I'm out if here!! Lol. Amazing song. Greetings from the UK

I dont know how I missed out on Queen. Have been overwhelmed by the music I have been hearing. Perhaps I concentrated too much on Jazz and classical music, and this whole genre of rock and roll (is it really?) didnt feature in my life. Now at 76 I am in love with the talent of this man, and feel so sad that he wasnt able to livel his life as a free man. May he Rest In Peace. 🌹🌹🌹

He was clearly aware of his end coming soon. He wrote a song which completely depicted his life and it is very easy to understand this now. But I love the lyrics as at some point in everyone’s life a person can relate to the song. Truly a masterpiece.

Nobody knows what Bohemian Rhapsody means, he got Figaro from an Opera called Le Nozze Di Figaro, Freddie was into Opera, and Beelzebub is the devil himself, not Roger Taylor. Brian May just gave an interview and confirmed that not even the other members of Queen know what any of it means.

Freddie a truly gifted musician, songwriter/composer and of course vocalist. Here's his previous attempts of writing that probably lead to Bohemian Rhapsody, which by the way he said were three separate musical ideas blended into one.

I always thought Freddie Mercury was gay, but I played a video and I had to say "hold on. This man is not gay. He likes women. " It was in his eyes, his movements. I only learned recently because information back then wasn't so easy to get that his true love, his wife, his love of his life was not a man, but a woman, so it contradicts the "gay" theory. You can not have a woman whom you consider your wife and true love and be fully gay. What you can have is a need inside to fulfill something he needed that the woman he loved couldn't do for him. In his life he grew up tortured and that planted seeds that only dysfunction could reap. When I see him perform now in the media saved beccause back then I didn't have MTV and was living my life, I realize he was like all greats, tortured, talented and timeless.

Talk about looking too much into shit why anaylize and try thinking you can think and speak for him! Its your personal thoughts you are spilling nothing to do with freddy at all!

I thought the movie was good. But after seeing several documentaries about Freddie such as Who Wants to Live Forever and other stuff, it made me realize how much they left out and it somehow started to feel rushed to me. Rami didn't look like Freddie, but his performance was great. But if one is interested in learning a deeper side of Freddie, might I suggest checking out Who Wants to Live Forever. Such a great documentary. Seen it twice already and it's available here on Youtube.

Freddy Mercury had sold his soul to Satan and he was telling the world that . “Momma I just killed a man” refers to the selling of his soul for fame and fortune , “ bezelbub has a devil reserved just for me “ refers to his personal demonic powers giving him from Satan” , study this very sad man with an open mind and you may just get it. Satan used him, Jim Morrison, John Lennon( listen to his last radio interview) Jimmy Hendrix , Joe Johnson and many more giving them temporal earthly rewards in exchange for their souls and in turn their demented satanic Godless influence remains for generations to look up to these tortured souls and glorifying them , thus denying God and assuring hell will be just a bit more crowded in the end . I know I’ll be mocked but that’s ok , I was part of this scene for many years , actually partied with John and Mr Zimmerman. Please don’t idolize these lost souls . This is a song about Freddy’s relationship with Satan p,win and simple.
