This morning was a little hard to get out of bed, late night with bestie and watching Bohemian Rhapsody movie. We went to the 9pm showing, so plenty of time for dinner and a chat, then there was the journey in the car to the cinemas with Bohemian Rhapsody blasting out of the stereo. We performed the whole song and were pumped by the time we got to the theatre. We were a little early, but that just meant we had more time to talk, get popcorn and drinks as well as visit the loo.
Once in the movies we settled in our seats and were ready for a real good time, my goodness we were totally blown away by Bohemian Rhapsody. The music was divine and so was the story, ok a little bit of Hollywood writing here and there, but Freddie Mercury came alive with Rami Malek’s portrayal of him. It made me laugh, cry and sing out loud much to the pleasure of other movie goers, it wasn’t a sing-a-long session you see.
I love Queen and their music and now I love them even more if that is quite possible. They were and are family. It still makes me sad that Freddie Mercury was taken so young though, I feel too now that I am entering my 45th year that he was too young to die. So yes I cried a little at the end, but he will live on in his music and nobody will ever forget Freddie Mercury.
The setting of the movie too, made me think how paths and timelines cross over, I was living when he was and I remember watching Live Aid when I was 12years old. I was 17years old when Freddie passed away, so Queen and Freddie were part of my life so to speak. It devastated me when he died and like George Michael, he had always been part of my childhood.
But now I am rediscovering their music on Spotify and loving it even more.
So Saturday morning leaves me a little worse for wear, but going to the library this morning will help. As will an early night I think.
Enjoy your Saturday wherever you are and please if you hadn’t seen it, go and watch Bohemian Rhapsody movie, I promise you won’t be disappointed at all.
