"The Great Pretender"
The Funny Lyrics:
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Why They're Funny:
At first I thought the words were 'I'm waving my heart like a clown', and I knew that couldn't be right, so I looked up the words, but they still don't make much sense. How can you wear your heart like a crown anyway?

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Love Kills"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
It's just a living pastime, ruining your heartline
Gives you a hard time, won't let you go,
Cause love (love) love won't leave you alone...
Why They're Misrhymed:
'Pastime' and 'heartline' do *not* rhyme, even with Freddie's accent! And 'go' and 'alone' are even a more pathetic attempt...

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Loving cats"
He had at least seven cats and a song that he wrote, Delilah, is about his favourite cat. Ironically, Rami Malek, who played him in Bohemian Rhapsody, is allergic to cats!
Submitted by: dayna
"His teeth"
Despite being called "Bucky" as a child due to being born with extra teeth that contributed to his famous overbite, he never actually got them removed throughout his life out of fear it would affect his vocal range

"Extraordinary + Mysterious Past"
Freddie Mercury (real name "Farrokh Bulsara") was the lead singer of Queen. He was an ethnic Parsi who had grown up in India and Zanzibar. When he was 17 he along with his family emigrated to the UK to escape political and ethnic violence as British colonial power in the island was weakening and a revolution was brewing there fast. The Bulsara family moved into a house in the Feltham neighborhood in London - only a few hundred yards away from where a fellow student and future astrophysicist named Brian May lived. As Paul Harvey used to say on the radio, "and now you know the rest of the story".

"Being replaced by Mick Jagger for "State Of Shock""
The song was originally recorded with Mercury and Michael Jackson. But the Jacksons used the version with Michael and Mick Jagger when recording the song for the "Victory" album.
