The protagonist in Queen’s iconic 1975 art-rock fantasylaments to his mother about his crimes and sorrows, pleading for life-affirming redemption:
Mama, just killed a man ...
Mama, life had just begun
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away Mama, ooh, didn’t mean to make you cry
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters...
Our cover version is inspired by the operatic nature of the original song; we reference the music of Mozart and Wagner, while employing text painting (in honor of the colorful lyrics) and ample virtuosity (in homage to the show-stopping flamboyance of Freddie Mercury).
