Buenos días: Killer Queen, Queen

63


por Paty Leiva

Las armonías de Freddie Mercury han sido mil veces imitadas, y es que es imposible no inspirarse en ellas, los juegos de voces son perfectos y las rimas exactas, no hay espacio para cacofonías fastidiosas, todo calza y sólo dan ganas de cantar.

Esta canción empieza de una, tras sólo un par de chasquidos de dedos. Me gustó para despertar un sábado, piola, con un poco de drama (solo un poco), uñas negras, pieles –porque eran otros tiempos–, fastuosa y gozadora como y con un final cargado de inesperadas guitarras. No se puede dejar de mover la cabeza (o al menos la patita) al compás. Buen sábado para tod@s.


She keeps a Moet et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet
‘Let them eat cake’ she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built-in remedy
For Khrushchev and Kennedy
At anytime an invitation
You can’t decline

Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice

She’s a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, gelatin
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an 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 Asia Minor
Then again incidentally
If you’re that way inclined

Perfume came
naturally from
Paris
because she couldn’t care less
Fastidious and precise

She’s a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, gelatin
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
To absolutely drive
you wild, wild
she’s all out to get you

She’s a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, gelatin
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?
You wanna try
