Day 463: The prophet song, Queen

Time for another Queen classic. This song opened the B side of their Night at the Opera album and in some ways has the same intense rock opera theme of Bohemian Rhapsody which closed the B side. Amazing really to have two such intense songs on the same side of the same album.

In some ways this song perhaps has more resonance than it did when it was released in the 70s because in a very real sense we now have modern prophets (scientists) warning us about the seriousness of global heating and warning us of the dire consequences if we do not change our ways. Let’s hope at some point we are able to rise to the challenge global heating presents for the sake of future generations.
