I have been told that I might be tone death but when I hear the voice of thousands singing “Love of My Life” while Freddy Mercury plays the piano…a shiver runs down my arms and I feel the sincerity of the lyrics. You feel the love that the song is referring too.
Love of my life..love of my life..oooooo..
The film, Bohemian Rhapsody, was an emotional experience for me. Tears fell from my eyes for most of the film and I can’t tell you exactly why. I cried for an entire week following the movie and now when I listen to Queen..I feel something take over. I felt empathy towards Freddy. He had so much in his life….. he was a star yet, he felt so alone. Loneliness is something that I have felt and I could feel his loneliness. But, he never felt lonely during his time on stage, he felt alive. He was a performer with such a talent, it was a gift, yet was his gift a curse?
Would you want an amazing talent with millions of fans yet still feel alone? Or would you rather skip the talent and not be alone.
I wish I had this blog when I watched the film because I would have loved to capture the exact reaction to the film that I had. Maybe I will watch it again and write another piece on it.
The song Bohemian Rhapsody seemed to foreshadow Freddy’s death. He sings to his mother and tells her if I am not back tomorrow…just carry on. He is saying his goodbye…its intense when things like that happen when certain moments foreshadow the future.
When Rami Malek won the Oscar for his portrayal of Freddy…I cried again. He deserved it and I was also proud of an Arab man winning! YAY!
I don’t know..maybe I am crazy.
Don’t stop me now because I am having a good time.
