Happy Birthday Freddie Mercury!

While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand
While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land
While there’s a wind and the stars and the rainbow
‘Till the mountains crumble into the plain” – Innuendo

Released on Queen’s ’91 album Innuendo titled for the song Innuendo, which I wrote and came from lyrics in Adam Ant’s ’82 hit song Goody Two Shoes.

“Don’t drink don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
There must be something inside” – Goody Two Shoes

In fact, I made sure to reference the song Goody Two Shoes again in the song, “Good” 19 times.

Unfortunately, they did change my lyrics which were in direct relation to where I got the idea for the flamenco guitar section of the song.  Originally the lyrics were “Trip the firelight” and was changed to “Tread that fine line”.

My father, the jazz drummer in former life, would watch Lawrence Welk.  If I wanted to watch TV I had to watch what he wanted.  On the show there was a Mexican American girl named Anacani who would perform traditional Spanish and Mexican songs as well as dance.
“While we live according to race, colour or creed
While we rule by blind madness and pure greed
Our lives dictated by tradition, superstition, false religion
Through the eons, and on and on” – Innuendo

The band which formed in 1995 took the name “Creed” from lyrics in Innuendo.
