    I think it was their producer who said he called them North, South, West and East..for example Freddie loved opera and Brian loved heavy metall. No one in Queen was angry at Freddie when he wanted to do a soloalbum as claimed in the movie.Roger Taylor had done 2 soloalbums earlier.IF Roger and John had a reason to be angry at Freddie it was for the clothes they had to wear in this video.You can see how unhappy they looked, who can be a womanizer in these clothes?But it was the songwriter -Freddie in this case-who determined the content of the video. The song is from real life but the video was opera -inspired


    "It's A Hard Life"

    I don't want my freedom
    There's no reason for living with a broken heart

    This is a tricky situation
    I've only got myself to blame
    It's just a simple fact of life
    It can happen to anyone

    You win you lose
    It's a chance you have to take with love
    Oh yeah I fell in love
    But now you say it's over and I'm falling apart

    Yeah yeah it's a hard life
    To be true lovers together
    To love and live forever in each others hearts
    It's a long hard fight
    To learn to care for each other
    To trust in one another right from the start
    When you're in love

    I try and mend the broken pieces
    I try to fight back the tears
    They say it's just a state of mind
    But it happens to everyone

    How it hurts (yeah) deep inside (oh yeah)
    When your love has cut you down to size
    Life is tough on your own
    Now I'm waiting for something to fall from the skies
    I'm waiting for love

    Yes it's a hard life
    Two lovers together
    To love and live forever in each others hearts
    It's a long hard fight
    To learn to care for each other
    To trust in one another right from the start
    When you're in love

    Yeah it's a hard life
    In a world that's filled with sorrow
    There are people searching for love in every way

    It's a long hard fight
    But I'll always live for tomorrow
    I'll look back on myself and say I did it for love
    Yes I did it for love for love oh I did it for love

    It´s a pity they never found a time to finish the song they started to work together but they were both busy and lived far away from each other.

    Freddies personal assistant Peter Freestone said this;
    “The combination of the two of them, but just being there while they were feeding off each other. Each of them were just giving out everything they could to create something and to be present at that sort of thing is amazing,” he gushed.

    “The same happened with David Bowie with Under Pressure for Queen. To be present when you have… it’s almost like electricity. Then you feel tension in the air and there’s that ozone smell. It’s almost like that.

    Bijou was written by Freddie Mercury and Brian May.It was on the last Queen album when still Freddie was alive.


    Freddie and his partner Jim Hutton watched a movie some weeks before Freddie´s death.
    The heroine in the movie asked her partner "Will we spend the rest of our lives together?
    Freddie looked at Jim and asked the same thing.
    Of course we will Jim said.Don´t be silly.
    When Freddie told Jim he had aids and he understood if Jim wanted to leave Jim answered I love you Freddie I´m not leaving.
    Jim was there until Freddie took his last breath.
    Jim was hiv+ then and both Freddie and Jim expected he wouldn´t live long but the new medicine came and Jim´s life was saved.
