Sheer Heart Attack

Reseña

Un genuino álbum de hard rock publicado por la banda Queen en 1974 y cuya grabación hubo de realizarse en dos fases, al caer enfermo su guitarrista Brian May. En una primera etapa se grabaron todos los instrumentos y las voces, excepto las partes correspondientes a May. Posteriormente se solapó el sonido de su guitarra, dando como resultado un sonido espectral, con temas como "Brighton Rock", "Now I'm Here" y "Stone Cold Crazy".

El álbum incluía también una balada compuesta por Freddie Mercury titulada "Lily of the Valley", en la que Mercury toca el piano y fabrica todos los coros un un tema de menos de dos minutos de duración. 

"Dear Friends" es una balada muy lenta, compuesta por Brian May e interpretada por al piano por el propio May, con las voces de Freddie Mercury. Se trata de un tema de una duración extraordinariamente corta, tan solo un minuto y seis segundos.

Pero sin duda, el tema estrella del álbum es el titulado "Killer Queen". Compuesto por Mercury, según él mismo confesó, un día sentado frente al piano, fue grabado en los estudios Rockfield en Gales, contando con la colaboración del productor británico Roy Thomas Baker. En el mismo, se nota la superposición de la guitarra de May sobre el resto de los sonidos. El tema de la canción trata de una mujer de clase alta que trabaja como prostituta. 

En otro de los temas de "Sheer Heart Attack", "Misfire", el bajista John Deacon nos trae ciertos aires caribeños en el primer tema compuesto por él mismo para la banda.

  1. Brighton RockVer letra

    [X]

    letra de Brighton Rock

    Happy little day, Jimmy went away
    Met his little Jenny on a public holiday
    A happy pair they made so decorously laid
    'Neath the gay illuminations all along the promenade
    It's so good to know there's still a little magic in the air
    I'll weave my spell

    Jenny will you stay? Tarry with me pray
    Nothing 'ere need come between us
    Tell me, love, what do you say?
    Oh, no, I must away to my mum in disarray
    If my mother should discover how I spent my holiday
    It would be of small avail to talk of magic in the air
    I'll say farewell

    Oh, rock of ages do not crumble
    Love is breathing still
    Oh, lady moon, shine down
    A little people magic if you will

    Jenny pines away writes a letter ev'ry day
    We must ever be together
    Nothing can my love erase
    Oh, no, I'm compromised
    I must apologize if my lady should discover
    How I spent my holidays

  2. Killer QueenVer letra

    [X]

    letra de Killer Queen

    She keeps Moet et Chandon
    In a pretty cabinet
    "Let them eat cake", she says
    Just like Marie Antoinette
    Building a remedy
    For Kruschev and Kennedy
    At anytime an invitation
    You can't decline

    Caviar and cigarettes
    Well versed in etiquette
    Extraordinarily nice

    Chorus:
    She's a killer queen
    Gunpowder, Gelatine
    Dynamite with a laser beam
    Guaranteed to blow your mind (Anytime)

    Recommended at the price
    Insatiable in appetite
    Wanna try?

    To avoid complications
    She never kept the same address
    In conversation
    She spoke just like a baroness
    Met a man from China
    Went down to Geisha Minor

    But then again incidentally
    If you're that way inclined

    Perfume came naturally from Paris (naturally)
    For cars she couldn't care less
    Fastidious and precise

    Chorus:
    She's a killer queen
    Gunpowder, gelatine
    Dynamite with a laser beam
    Guaranteed to blow your mind (Anytime)

    Drop of a hat she's as willing as
    Playful as a pussy cat
    Then momentarily out of action
    Temporarily out of gas
    She'll absolutely drive you wild, wild...
    She's out to get you

    Chorus:
    She's a killer queen
    Gunpowder, gelatine
    Dynamite with a laser beam
    Guaranteed to blow your mind (Anytime)

    Recommended at the price
    Insatiable in appetite
    Wanna try?
    You wanna try.

    letra de Tenement Funster

    My new purple shoes
    Bin' amazin' the people next door
    And my rock 'n roll 45's
    Bin' enragin' the folks on the lower floor

    I got a way with girls on my block
    Try my best be a real individual
    And when we go down to smokies and rock
    They line up like it's some kinda ritual

    Oh, give me a good guitar
    And you can say that my hair's a disgrace
    Or, just find me an open car
    I'll make the speed of light outta this place

    I like the good things in life
    But most of the best things ain't free
    And this same situation, just cuts like a knife
    When you're young, and you're poor, and you're crazy

    But oh, give me a good guitar
    And you can say that my hair's a disgrace
    Or, just find me an open car
    I'll make the speed of light outta this place

  4. Flick of the WristVer letra

    [X]

    letra de Flick of the Wrist

    Dislocate your spine if you don't sign, he says
    I'll have you seeing double
    Mesmerize you when he's tongue-tied
    Simply with those eyes
    Synchronize your minds and see
    The beast within him rise

    Don't look back
    Don't look back
    It's a rip-off
    Flick of the wrist and you're dead, baby
    Blow him a kiss and you're mad
    Flick of the wrist
    He'll eat your heart out
    A dig in the ribs and then a kick in the head
    He's taken an arm and taken a leg
    All this time honey
    Baby, you've been had

    Intoxicate your brain with what I'm saying
    If not you'll lie in knee
    Deep trouble
    Prostitute yourself he says
    Castrate your human pride
    Sacrifice your leisure days
    Let me squeeze you till you've dried

    Don't look back
    Don't look back
    It's a rip-off

    Work my fingers to my bones
    I scream with pain
    I still make no impression
    Seduce you with his money-make machine
    Cross-collateralize, (big-time money, money)
    Reduce you to a muzak-fake machine
    Then the last goodbye
    It's a rip-off

    Flick of the wrist and you're dead, baby
    Blow him a kiss and you're mad
    Flick of the wrist
    He'll eat your heart out
    A dig in the ribs and then a kick in the head
    He's taken an arm and taken a leg
    All this time, honey
    Baby, you've been had

    letra de Lily of the Valley

    I am for ever searching high and low
    But why does everybody tell me no?
    Neptune of the seas
    An answer for me please
    The lily of the valley doesn't know

    I lie and wait with open eyes
    I carry on through stormy skies
    I follow every course
    My Kingdom for a Horse
    But each time I grow ols
    Serpent of the Nile
    Relieve me for a while
    And cast me from you're spell, let me go

    Messenger from seven seas has flown
    To tell the King of Rhye he's lost his Throne
    Wars will never cease
    Is there time enough for peace
    For the lily of the valley doesn't know

    Composición: Freddie Mercury

    A baby I was when you took my hand
    And the light of the night burned bright
    And the people all stared didn't understand
    But you knew my name on sight
    Whatever came of you and me?
    America's new bride to be
    Don't worry baby I'm safe and sound
    Down in the dungeon just peaches and me
    Don't I love her so?
    Yes she made me live again yeah!

    A thin moon me in the smoke screen sky
    Where the beams of your love light chase
    Don't move don't speak don't feel no pain
    With the rain running down my face
    Your matches still light up the sky
    And many a tear lives on in my eye
    Down in the city just hoople and me
    Don't I love him so don't I love him so?

    Whatever comes of you and me
    I love to leave my memories with you

    Now I'm here (now I'm here)
    Think I'll stay around around around
    (around around around around)
    Down in the city just you and me

    Don't I love you so?

    Taylor and john deacon

    Sleeping very soundly on a saturday morning
    I was dreaming I was al capone
    There's a rumour going round
    Gotta clear outa town
    Im smelling like a dry fish bone
    Here come the law gonna break down the door
    Gonna carry me away once more
    Never never I never want it anymore
    Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
    Crazy stone cold crazy you know

    Rainy afternoon I gotta blow a typhoon
    And Im playing on my slide trombone
    Anymore anymore cannot take it anymore
    Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
    Crazy stone cold crazy you know

    Walking down the street
    Shooting people that I meet
    With my rubber tommy water gun
    Here come the deputy
    Hes gonna come and get me
    I gotta get me up and run
    They got the sirens loose
    I ran right outa juice
    They're gonna put me in a cell
    If I can't go to heaven
    Will they let me go to hell?
    Crazy stone cold crazy you know

    Words and music by brian may

    So dear friends
    Your love has gone
    Only tears to dwell upon
    I dare not say
    As the wind must blow
    So a love is lost
    A love is won
    Go to sleep and dream again
    Soon your hopes will rise
    And then from all this gloom
    Life can start anew
    And therell be no crying soon

    Please don't misfire, misfire

    letra de She Makes Me (Stormtrooper in Stilettoes)

    I love, she makes me
    She is my heart
    She is my love
    She is my love

    I know, I'm jealous of her
    She makes me need
    She is my love
    She is my love

    Who knows who she'll make me
    As I lie in her cocoon
    But the world will surely heal my ills
    I'm warm and terrified
    She makes me so

    I know, the day I leave her
    I'd love her still
    She is my love
    She is my love

    Who knows where my dreams will end
    I'll follow as they grow
    But the world will know
    How long I'll take
    And if I'm very slow
    She makes me so
    She is my love
    She is my love

    letra de In the Lap of the Gods...Revisited

    It's so easy but I can't do it
    So risky
    But I gotta chance it
    It's so funny
    There's nothing to laugh about
    My money
    That's all you want to talk about
    I can see what you want me to be
    But I'm not fool

    It's in the lap of the Gods
    I can see what you want me to be
    But I'm no fool

    No beginning there's no ending
    There's no meaning
    In my pretending
    Believe me life goes on and on and on
    Forgive me when I ask you
    Where do I belong
    You say
    I can't set you free from me
    But that's not true

    It's in the lap of the Gods
    I can see what you want me to be
    But I'm no fool
    It's in the lap of the Gods
    Wo wo la la la wo
