One of the most astonishing musicians of all time and the iconic late frontman of Queen, Freddie Mercury’s well-known fan page, Freddie Mercury Club shared a recent video on Instagram.

As you will read the full caption below, Freddie Mercury revealed his ideas about prostitutes.

Here is the caption of the post:

“On October 11th 1974, exactly 45 years ago today, Queen released “Killer Queen” as a double A-side single with “Flick of the Wrist” from their Sheer Heart Attack album.

Written by Freddie Mercury, the song was their first big international hit, reaching number two in the UK and becoming their first US hit.

“Killer Queen” is about a high-class call girl, as Freddie said. “Classy people can be whores as well. That’s what the song is about, though I’d prefer people to put their interpretation upon it – to read into it what they like.”

The song marked a departure from the heavier material of the band’s first two albums, as well as the beginning of a more stylistically diverse approach in songwriting. At the same time, it kept the essence of Queen’s trademark sound, particularly in its meticulous vocal harmonies.

Freddie commented that he wrote the lyrics before the melody and music, whereas he typically did the opposite. Besides using his grand piano as usual, he overdubbed the song with an upright (credited as “jangle piano”), to give the track a vaudeville sound. The recording features elaborate four-part harmonies and also a multitracked guitar solo by Brian May which makes use of the “bell effect.”

The song won Freddie his first Ivor Novello Award.

Killer Queen” has been described by AllMusic as the true beginning of Queen’s “radio sound” and “recalls the cabaret songs of yesteryear, but also shows how Queen was fast becoming a master of power pop”.

Regarding the line, “‘Let them eat cake’ she says, just like Marie Antoinette”: According to legend, she said the phrase after hearing how the peasants had no bread to eat. It’s more likely that it was uttered by a French philosopher, not Antoinette.

P.S. The first time I heard the song my ears were so deliciously surprised that I kept listening to it without break for hours. And the lyrics are so wonderfully clever that everyone just has to know it by heart. 👏
And that mic action is just… 🔥🔥🔥

Have you ever envied a mic so much?”
