This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Queen
Sammy's boss from "Spread Your Wings" is/was in love with Sammy.
The boss, very emotionally, asks Sammy "Why can't you be happy at the Emerald bar?" which implies that the boss wants Sammy around, but according to the boss, Sammy is "always dreaming". Why keep around a bad employee? Of course, there's a good chance that he is just warning Sammy that because he "has no real ambitions, [he] won't get very far" or maybe the boss just doesn't want to go through the trouble of hiring another employee.
Bohemian Rhapsody is about a man committing suicide and going to Hell.
The "man" Freddy "just killed" in the first verse is himself. The middle section is him being confronted by a series of demons, followed by him trying in vain to "get right out of here," before resigning himself to his fate.
Bohemian Rhapsody contains the ultimate question.
It's obviously the first two verses: Is this the real life? or is this just fantasy?
  • 42. Nah, doesn't fit. Good guess, though.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a high school/college literature class assignment done as a "book report" on Albert Camus's The Stranger.
The lyrics represent Meursault's state of mind as he awaits execution after the final scene of the book, riding the emotional turbulence of no longer being so emotionally disconnected from everything as he recounts his story—and eventually coming to terms with his fate.
Roger Taylor and Bonnie Tyler are twins and were separated at birth
They both have distinctive gravelly voices, both have blond hair and their names are very similar. The Powers That Be separated them and made them both famous in the 70's in an attempt to get them to meet, so that they could mate to create a star so famous their fame collapses in on themselves and destroys the world. Averted, as they never really got nasty.
Put Out the Fire's first verse is about Mark Chapman.
Check out the lyrics: 'They called him a hero in the land of the free, but he wouldn't shake my hand boy, he disappointed me, so I got my handgun and I blew him away, that critter was a bad guy and I had to make him pay.' Eerily familiar, and the song was recorded shortly after Lennon's death.
