I first heard this song . . . Summer 2013, I think? Must’ve been. The album hadn’t been out for long before that. That was a bad summer, at the height of some health problems–both physical and mental–when I was putting myself under undue pressure to make a plot for Monochrome #3 work. This song reminds me so much of Donovan Candle and his state of mind near the end of what’s planned. Now to just find the right words, assemble them in the right order, and finish that draft once and for all . . .
I highly recommend the album …Like Clockwork. It’s probably my favorite Queens album, next to Songs for the Deaf, of course.
