Or... Did it occur that "Mama just killed a man" might have been in reference to his inability to come out at the time. That news would have devastated his family and his relationship with them. I have always thought that Bohemian Rhapsody was an allegory to Freddie's homosexuality. Obscure maybe... But I believe that when you listen to what Freddie wrote, vs what John, Brian or Roger wrote... I firmly believe that Bohemian Rhapsody is an expose on Freddie.

3:44 into this and what rubbish:Freddy did not confirm her suspicion's coz he knew she was an idiot. this claims the song was conceived 10yrs earlier(released 1975 - 10yrs = 1965) this was before the group had formed.

Freddie wasn't totally gay, he was bisexual and the true love of his life was Mary, as his song "Love of My Life" clearly portrays. 😍 What was stated in the final statement of this good video was beautifully said. Love and tolerance for you all ! 💓

I get that it wasn't done much, but there were long songs that were very popular before Bohemian Rhapsody such as Stairway to Heaven, so why did the record companies not think a five minute song couldn't be popular?

I was doing some work related crap last night and I dozed off & had a craziest dream...I was in London and then I go some place and meet-up people and blah di blah and one thing left another and I end up having a 3-way with Freddie Mercury and Rami Malek... I’m still blushing even thinking of it...🙈and then mother fucking just then, I was woken up and freaked out by the morning prayer scream I mean call from the loudspeaker near my house and I understood why the guy in Christchurch attacked the mosque.....he must have his reason not necessarily same as mine i.e the scream... he must be upset or irked because they were having the Gatherings and using their parking spots on he street without their permission...!!

As for the theory of Freddie writing "Bohemian Rhapsody" about killing "his old self" and the whole "now he's gay" thing that is stated in the vid after 7:41, I don't BUY IT. I am NOT sure what he meant by "Mama just killed a man, put a gun up to his head, pulled the trigger now he;s dead" I am GUESSING he put a GUN up to A MANS head THEN pulled the trigger and GUESS WHAT, NOW he is DEAD. I would have GUESSED that MAYBE he had infected a lover with AIDS, and had written the song to say that in a NOT VERY DIRECT WAY, BUT, I am kinda thinking that MAYBE had written Bohemian Rhapsody and hadn't really meant that he had "killed" anybody, and it was all just something that Freddie had simply "dreamt about" who knows?

The cowboy song was just the first part. Freddie once said that he had these different songs, and instead of recording them separately, he combined them into one. I think people try to see too much in things. Instead of the song being about him coming out, maybe it was just what it was originally called. A song about a cowboy that shot and killed someone, and basically threw his life away. A reporter mentioned the name Beelzebub, and that some people thought he was a Satanist. He laughed and said he used the word simply because he like it. It was a cool word basically. Nothing more. I think Freddie probably got a kick out of people trying to read more into songs than what they were.

I believe the song is about the guilt he felt after he sold his soul to Hollywood and came out of the closet. He killed his former self when his life was in early stages (life had just begun). He threw his soul away when he signed the contract and broke his mother's heart. The fear of his deed sends shivers down his spine. Thunderbolt and lightning is indicative of the devil. Someone pleads for him to be set free but the contract is binding. Beelzebub has a devil put aside for him when he dies and pays with his soul. He asks God how he can love him and leave him to die. Finally he gives up and realises he has no power and accepts whichever way the wind blows.

I think the song is a heartfelt apology to his parents --- he was telling them that he was gay (which was shunned by their Zoroastrian faith) --- but also telling them he needed to live his own life and "kill" their expectations for him

Well the middle is not absolute nonsense. Freddie is an artist, a poet. Having been raised in a religious family, where homosexual relations is considered a Sin, Freddie must've felt he is has sinned. Therefore, reference to Beelzebub and the dark atmosphere( thunderbolt and lightening) suggests his entrance to hell. Galileo championed heliocentricism, which was controversial and against religious beliefs of the day. I think Freddie imagines he meets Galileo in hell.

Hmm so I did understand the lyrics for their true meaning, even as a young woman! That's cool! I watched an interview last nite and he told the interviewer that the part he struggles with most while creating a song is its lyrics! He said he wishes HE had a Bernie Talpin too (elton John's writer---i think that's close to what his name is lol can't swear to it tho??!!). Freddie being the musical genius he was tho, I woulda never guessed THAT was the part he struggled with, his lyrics r unbelievable! Even in this song lol! He said he hears the sounds, outs em together kinda, n then strains to create words to go with it's music

I don't understand why so many music industry execs were complaining about a 5:55 minute song in 1975. The era of prog rock had been going on for how long by then? This was the era of side long epics. Thick as a Brick was 45 mins long. And there were plenty of Hit singles that were 7-8 mins or longer: Hey Jude, MacArthur Park, Stairway to Heaven, American Pie, Roundabout, Innagaddavida, Carpet Ride, Light My Fire to name a few ... Bohemian Rhapsody wasn't even 6 minutes long. Was punk already devolving pop music by then?
