* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8mAaJuefOw "I'm Going Slightly Mad"]] (from ''Innuendo'') dances very close to the line between cheeky and sinister. The video features the band doing increasingly bizarre and disturbing things, the eeriness amplified by the mostly black and white photography. It doesn't help the song's reputation that Freddie Mercury's friend Peter Straker says the song is semi-autobiographical, with the lyrics describing Mercury's moments of dementia in his later-stage illness (AIDS).

** The same album brings us "White Man" which ends with a nice, acoustic outro, followed by a [[JumpScare LOUD drum beat after a pause.]]

cover, featuring a picture of the band... with their ''heads fused together''. A [[IncrediblyLamePun miracle]] indeed.

* "The Prophet's Song" starts off as being very calm and tranquil, but then [[MoodWhiplash suddenly becomes very dark]] and stays that way for the rest of the song. There is then a point in the middle of the song where the instrumentals stop, leaving a delayed and multitracked Freddie Mercury singing lyrics in the form of a round, which gives off the impression that the listeners are in a very large and empty location. The lyrics themselves are also very disturbing, and sound like something out of the Old Testament.
