"anyway the wind blows", meaning if it's men or women- it doesn't matter to him."mama, just killed a man.
The "anyway the wind blows" line can also mean that he's careless, but if you look deeper into it, it may even be code for the whole gay/straight thing.
So you think you can love him and forget that Iwas first 'toon! I can see the gay angle, if you push it, but when it comes to music, I prefer to just enjoy and keep it simple.
(musical interlude)So you think Homer Simpson is one funny guy? First, LOVE this song, whatever its about (I have always taken it at face value----dude killed someone, now must face the consequences "any way the wind blows", meaning, no matter how you slice it, the consequence is the same---even though he tried to fight the court and ask for leniency because "he's just a poor boy from a poor family", never really had a shot in life).
I often wonder what the artists think of these dissections. I was 10 years old and listened to nothing but AM top 40 radio when I first heard this song in 1975, I hated it, but it soon became one of the "top 3 at Ten PM' for about 3 weeks, and by time that was Over, I was looking at music like I never had before, not just to hum along, but to appreciate the lyrics and the imagination of the creators...37 years later I still find something new in this song everytime I listen to it...100 years from now people will look at classic rock the way we now look at Classical music of the late 19th century, and one of the centerpieces will be Bohemian Rhapsody. even though Freddie claimed it was all "nonsense", he was a very modest person.
I read the comments sections on a lot of songs and the "meanings" people come up with can be really creative.
On May 1st, 1976 it reached #1 (for 2 weeks) on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart... It meant something- no one can be sure of what, but it had to of meant something.
On December 28th, 1975, "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on April 18th, 1976 it peaked at #9 (for 2 weeks) and spent almost a half-year on the Top 100 (24 weeks)... People hav said that he began writing the song at Ealing Art College- which means that it was in his head and he was working on it for a decade at least.
Because the lyrics or the story of the song was very impressive and he liked it a lot! He also may mean that it's his time to make seperate ways with Mary, as much as he did love her.Eric came back from the rehab of heroin and alcohol addiction, with a new album '461 Ocean Boulevard' which including a single 'I Shot The Sheriff'. If i'm not back again this time tomorrow- carry on, carry on- as if nothing really matters"By "i'm", he may mean his old self- the one who she loved and the one who loved her.Everyone was so surprised at what he was doing on that album. His best friend is Barney.(He works for Mister Slate, pushing rocks, Spends his day on the clock.)When the whistle-bird blows, Yabba Dabba Doo time! In this case, he's saying if he doesn't come back- for her to go on and date new people and just forget about him like it doesn't even matter. This already gives us so much insight into how he had been feeling. But at this time- as far as we know, he hadn't been in any male relationships.
