Is this the real Life? – Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen)

Undoubtedly one of the best songs ever.

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.
Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see,
I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I’m easy come, easy go, Little high, little low,
Any way the wind blows doesn’t really matter to me, to me.

Mama just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger, now he’s dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away.
Mama, ooh, Didn’t mean to make you cry,
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine, body’s aching all the time.
Goodbye, ev’rybody, I’ve got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.
Mama, ooh, I don’t want to die,
I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all.

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango.
Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very fright’ning me.
(Galileo.) Galileo. (Galileo.) Galileo, Galileo figaro
Magnifico. I’m just a poor boy and nobody loves me.
He’s just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go.
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go.
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
(Let me go.) Will not let you go.
(Let me go.) Will not let you go. (Let me go.) Ah.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
(Oh mama mia, mama mia.) Mama mia, let me go.
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye.
So you think you can love me and leave me to die.
Oh, baby, can’t do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

Nothing really matters, Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.

Any way the wind blows..

Another Day In The Paradise

Another Day In The Paradise.

Another Day In The Paradise

She calls out to the man on the street
“Sir, can you help me?
It’s cold and I’ve nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?”

He walks on, doesn’t look back
He pretends he can’t hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there

Oh
Think twice
‘Cause it’s another day for you and me in paradise
Oh
Think twice
‘Cause it’s another day for you
You and me in paradise

(Think about it)

She calls out to the man on the street
He can see she’s been crying
She’s got blisters on the soles of her feet
She can’t walk but she’s trying

Oh
Think twice
‘Cause it’s another day for you and me in paradise
Oh
Think twice
It’s just another day for you
You and me in paradise

Just think about it

Oh lord!
Is there nothing more anybody can do?
Oh-oh whoa lord!
There must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face
You can see that she’s been there
Probably been moved on from every place
Cause she didn’t fit in there

Oh
Think twice
‘Cause it’s another day for you and me in paradise
Oh
Think twice
It’s just another day for you
You and me in paradise (Another day in paradise, ooh)

Just think about it
Hmm-mmm
Think about it

It’s just another day
For you and me
In paradise
It’s just another day
For you and me
In paradise
(Para, paradise)

(Paradise) It’s just another day
For you and me (Ooh-ooh)
(Just think about it) In paradise
(Paradise) It’s just another day
For you and me
(Just think about it) In paradise
(Para, paradise)

(Ooh-ooh, in paradise) It’s just another day
For you and me
(Hmm-mmm, paradise) In paradise
It’s just another day (Paradise)
For you and me (Just another day)
(In paradise) In paradise
(Para, paradise)

My Top 100 Favorite Songs Of All Time (English Only)

ImageThis is the list of my favorite 100 (Actually 200) English songs of all time. 

Some rows have multiple entries separated by /, which are either the other great songs by the same artist or the other versions of the same song sung by different artists, deserving to be in that place in the list. This is done mainly to reduce the length of the list. 

The list is arranged in order. But I wouldn’t worry too much about it.Every song in this list can be moved up or down by up to 5 or even 10 places.It depends on your personal choice and the liking for a particular genre of music. 

Important things it has got all my favorite songs in place. I enjoy these songs very much and I hope they make you enjoy it too. Any songs that I may have missed or any comments, observations are most welcome.
