I was particularly fond of Queen and the album A Night at the Opera. The album cover was white and had this rainbow of colors on it, with a bird and other crazy shit - I loved it. For those of you who are die-hard Queen fans (annnnnnd whooooo isn't) you will know that A Night at the Opera features such classics like "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "You're My Best Friend" -neither which I listened to.
Nope - not this girl - I was OBSESSED with "The Prophet's Song."
And it's 8 minutes and 17 seconds long! Making it Queen's longest song. So, not only is it really, really long; it's really, really, bad. It's actually, really, really, really, really, really bad.
(If you have 8 minutes and 17 seconds of your life you are willing to give up for me, and your boss won't get mad you're listening to Queen while on the clock, then please see for yourself. BUT you HAVE to listen to the WHOLE thing to get the point of this blog - okay, maybe the whole thing will be too painful but listen to at least 6 min. and 30 sec.)
See? I told ya!
But, I seriously LOVED this song when I was like 7 years old. LOVED it - I would listen to it 5 times a day, all in a row. (Which is 41 minutes and 25 seconds of Freddie Mercury on a bad day; over and over and over and over......)
I feel okay admitting this to blog-land because I HAVE to tell you what my husband's most favorite movie was back in the day ....... his mom told me he would watch it every day after school. I guess he watched it so much the tape broke and he cried.
Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Can you picture seven year old me and eight year old him on opposite sides of the world: me listening to the song you just heard and him watching the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
It's like destiny that we found each other!
