My baby does me
John and Freddie again just mucking about creating soundtracks for their imaginary film side project. I like to imagine Freddie and John staying up late watching bad films and then running to the studio to impersonate all their soundtrack cliches. The bass and vocal imitate each other. The bass is so simple, but provides a structure for everything to sit across, reacting perfectly to the rhodes style keyboard. I love Freddie asking to be turned up at the beginning. Managing to be sultry and sexy even when talking to the sound engineer.
On My Baby Does Me — a dumb title flagging up dumb lyrics — the drummer is absent altogether, the derisory beat programmed by co-producer David Richards. Only the hardest-hearted shitbag would begrudge Freddie a love song to his cat on the last album before his tragic death. A guaranteed way to wrongfoot bar-goers in the s was to locate the seven inch of Another One Bites The Dust on the jukebox it was always there and select the b-side. Cue four minutes of bewildered irritation as this demented stop-start doo-wop pastiche unfolded its cheeky grin of a bassline over exuberant hand-claps and lyrics that read like an inappropriately lighthearted mental health campaign. Was it a sly parody of the mechanical, synth-heavy style Freddie and John spearheaded on Hot Space? Heavy-handed 80s keyboards and wall-to-wall falsetto predominate on this inconsequential puddle of half-cooked Butlins Motown from the pen, once again, of John and Freddie, who just seemed to bring out the cheesiest in each other. Afraid to use the guitar as a force.
The Miracle is the thirteenth studio album by the British rock band Queen , released on 22 May by Capitol Records in the United States and by Parlophone Records in the United Kingdom, where it was the band's first studio album to be released on that label. The album was recorded as the band recovered from Brian May 's marital problems and Freddie Mercury 's AIDS diagnosis in which was known to the band, though not publicised at the time. Recording started in January and lasted for an entire year. The album was originally going to be called The Invisible Men , but three weeks before the release, according to Roger Taylor , they decided to change the name to The Miracle. It was also the last Queen album with a band photo on the front cover. The Miracle is estimated to have sold 5 million copies in total, indicating that despite slower American sales, the album sold well around the world, even without a supporting tour.
