We just watched Bohemian Rhapsody and childhood memories came back crawling. I grew up listening to them. My mom was a huge fan and I remember how every morning, I would be woken up to the sound of ‘Bicycle, bicycle! I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike’.
The movie was fantastic but a part of me tear up when they started singing Love of my life. I kid you not when I say this was my first ever hugot song. I remember crying in a corner when I hear this. It was also my favourite Queen song. Old scribbles from my notes was even related to this song. Gosh, I was so emo at 8 years old.
He wasn’t coming back.
All hope is gone.
This is really happening.
She knew it then, but it was getting harder now.
How can this pain gets worse over time?
Wasn’t she healing? She was just laughing.
Wasn’t she moving on? She was just smiling.
She closed her eyes.
With hands on her chest, she took a deep breath.
Tears started to fall.
She doesn’t know I’m watching.
She doesn’t know that I knew.
Silent sobs hid behind my queen.
Drowning her sorrows, she was listening to Queen.
Curled up in a corner, hoping she can’t be seen.
Decades down the line, the same music still hits me the same. It would be nice to if the band was still here, but it still is nice that their music still transcends even to this generation. Also, I had a bonus of seeing the whole main cast of the movie + Brian May and Roger Taylor when they launched the #QueenCarnaby lights.
