Phil adult dating
A classic example of this style is Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" about a suicidal homosexual. Sometimes in songwriting, the artist can use the perspective of a person they know, and I think in this song he is writing about the man who his wife cheated with.
Basically the man has been waiting for Phil's wife to leave him, and if he saw Phil drowning he wouldn't lend a hand.
Between 19 he had, as a solo artist, twenty-six Top 100 records; fourteen made the Top 10 with seven reaching #1, he just missed having a eighth #1 record when "Easy Lover", a duet with Philip Bailey, peaked at #2 in 1985...* Other acts that appeared at the concert were Sting, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Donovan, and Bob Geldof.
I was driving from Ithaca NY to Massena NY at about 3AM and was on the road along the St. This song came on and I was instantly captured by the lyrics.
When the drum solo started I just about drove off the road. It is a decent song with one classic moment, the drum bridge.
Otherwise, it has always been a little slow and overly simplistic to me.
A little specificity would have helped, though the ambiguity did help spur all the urban myths.
I must say this song sums up exactly how it feels to be heartbroken by someone you love(d) then to have whoever that person is suddenly call you back claiming to want you back.
