Queen: Somebody to Love

My friends, I am in the mood for adding one more discussion and to see if it works out.

If you read my last blog, you may know I do have an intention to bring this group back to life and I am in the mood today. I have many indisputable (or maybe, disputable!) reasons for posting it today.

As you may know I am living in the hell now! My great dog delivered seven puppies about a month ago. I also have three cats and one of them is on the heat. My crazy Australian parrot can't live a single day without swearing so badly that I would hardly say the same to myself. My wife decided to take a vacation and to leave me all alone to be eaten up by our pets which need much more care and love than I can give them! Some EC members imagine me running naked and drunk being chased by the pack of my hungry dirty puppeis in the downtown of an ancient European city! I can't sleep! I see nighmares again! And all I need is LOVE. LOL!

So, I want to post the song expressing my present state of mind! I believe you all know Queen band and Freddie Mercury but I want to introduce you one of the best lead guitarists, Brian May, He was not only a leading guitar in Queen, but also a great songwriter. Also, he was an astrophysicist and a perfect photographer. It was him who reconvened  the band after Freddie's death as he believed in power of music.

I'd also like to tell you about the Queen's "chorus" making many people wonder if it is really possible for four sound like a chorus. There is no mystery. They were one of the first bands who tried taking advantage of voice-over recording and you can be sure of their singing all their hits themselves.

And now, I invite you to listen to one of their greatest songs "Someone to love".

Here is lyrics and sing with them and me! I don't believe in any god but I believe in LOVE although it is a chemical reaction!

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Each morning I get up I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet
(take a look at yourself)
Take a look in the mirror and cry
Lord, what you're doing to me

I have spent all my years in believing you
But I just can't get no relief, Lord!
Somebody, somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

I work hard (he works hard) every day of my life
I work 'til I ache my bones
At the end (at the end of the day) I take home my hard-earned pay all on my own

I get down (down) on my knees (knees)
And I start to pray (praise the Lord)
'Til the tears run down from my eyes
Lord, somebody, somebody (please)
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

(he works hard) everyday (everyday)
I try, and I try, and I try

But everybody wants to put me down
They say I'm goin' crazy
They say I got a lot of water in my brain
I got no common sense
I got nobody left to believe in
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, Lord
Somebody, somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
(Can anybody find me someone to love)

Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat (you just keep losing and losing)
I'm OK, I'm alright (he's alright, he's alright)
I ain't gonna face no defeat
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
One day (someday) I'm gonna be free, Lord!

Find me somebody to love [repeat]

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

(Find me somebody to love)

[Gospel Choir: Roger, Brian & Freddie]

  • Thanks, my friend! Now you know the lyrics and will be able to shout it out from the open window of your car! Hahahaha!

  • Thanks, Olga! Welcome to our club!

  • This is the typical song that seems not to be affected by the passing of time. Actually I'd say most of Queen's. Btw I like it too and it's one of the songs that makes me raise volume in the car while driving. Sadly I barely know the lyrics.

  • Thanks a lot, dear Mary! I believe my parrot's previous owner was a docker or a trooper or someone like that. When Tanya bought him, he had already sworn so badly! But he is such an interesting and smart bird that we can't get rid of him!

  • Thanks, Roman. I am really glad to know you are one of us, people led by common sense. Welcome to our new group we haven't created, yet! Honestly, I am tired out of those religious fanatics!

    We both love pets and you should know the vocabulary defining their state. So, if your female pet wants to have cubs, she is on the heat!

    • Thank you, Danny! :)

  • Roman, means that it needs "somebody to love" too XD

  • Hi Mary!

    I like this song, because it has a catchy rhythm and melody! And a little bit funny lyrics :)

  • Hi Danny!

    You are right, if we were able to wear the songs like clothes, you would be wearing this song right now :D

    And I guess I am almost the same like you in this point. "I don't believe in any god but I believe in LOVE although it is a chemical reaction!"

    And please tell me, what does it mean "...one of them is on the heat."?

  • I will listen tomorrow and do comments....anyway, I of course love music.....
