MAGIC... В КОММЕНТАРИИ СНОВА ПРЕДЛАГАЕТСЯ ПЕРЕВОД НА РУССКИЙ...

INVISIBLE MAN
I'M FROM HEAVEN
A KIND OF MAGIC(R. Taylor)

It's a kind of magic (x 2) a kind of magic
One dream, one soul, one prize, one goal,
One golden glance of what should be
It's a kind of magic
One shaft of light that shows the way
No mortal man can win this way
It's a kind of magic
The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time
It's a kind of magic

The waiting seems eternity
The day will dawn of sanity
Is this a kind of magic
It's a kind of magic
There can be only one
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done

This flame that bums inside of me
I'm here in secret harmonies
It's a kind of magic
The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time
It's a kind of magic

It's a kind of magic
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be, will soon be,
Will soon be done
This is a kind of magic
There can be only one
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done
Magic - It's a kind of magic
It's a kind of magic
Magic, magic, magic, magic
It's magic
It's a kind of magic

НЕ ОСТАНАВЛИВАЙ МЕНЯ...

INVISIBLE MAN
I'M FROM HEAVEN
Don't Stop Me Now(Mercury)


Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world it's turning inside out Yeah!
I'm floating around in ecstasy
So don't stop me now don't stop me
'Cause I'm having a good time having a good time

I'm a shooting star leaping through the skies
Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity
I'm a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I'm gonna go go go
There's no stopping me

I'm burning through the skies Yeah!
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm trav'ling at the speed of light

Don't stop me now (Yes I'm having a good time)
I don't want to stop at all

I'm a rocket ship on my way to Mars
On a collision course
I am a satellite I'm out of control
I am a sex machine ready to reload
Like an atom bomb about to
Oh oh oh oh oh explode

I'm burning through the skies Yeah!
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm trav'ling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic woman out of you

Don't stop me don't stop me don't stop me

И ЕЩЁ ОДНА ПЕСНЯ, К КАТОРОЙ ЕСТЬ ПЕРЕВОД НА РУССКИЙ...

INVISIBLE MAN
I'M FROM HEAVEN
Innuendo(Queen)



While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand
While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land
While there's a wind and the stars and the rainbow
Till the mountains crumble into the plain
Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'
Tread that fine line
Oh we'll keep on tryin' yeah
Just passing our time
While we live according to race, colour or creed
While we rule by blind madness and pure greed
Our lives dictated by tradition, superstition, false religion
Through the eons, and on and on
Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'
We'll tread that fine line
Oh we'll keep on tryin'
Till the end of time
Till the end of time

Through the sorrow all through our splendour
Don't take offence at my innuendo

You can be anything you want to be
Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be
Be free with your tempo, be free be free
Surrender your ego - be free, be free to yourself

Oooh, ooh -
If there's a God or any kind of justice under the sky
If there's a point, if there's a reason to live or die
If there's an answer to the questions we feel bound to ask
Show yourself - destroy our fears - release your mask
Oh yes we'll keep on trying

Hey tread that fine line
Yeah we'll keep on smiling yeah
And whatever will be - will be
We'll just keep on trying
We'll just keep on trying
Till the end of time
Till the end of time
Till the end of time

ОЧЕРЕДНАЯ КЛАССНАЯ ПЕСНЯ, В КОММЕНТАРИ ПРЕДЛОГАЕТСЯ ПЕРЕВОД НА РУССКИЙ...

INVISIBLE MAN
I'M FROM HEAVEN
BREAKTHRU(QUEEN)

When love breaks up
When the dawn light wakes up
A new life is born
Somehow I have to make this final breakthru... Now!

I wake up feel just fine
Your face fills my mind
I get religion quick 'cos you're looking divine
Honey you're touching some tiling, you're touchin' me
I'm under your thumb, under your spell, can't you see
If I could only reach you
If I could make you smile
If I could only reach you
That would really be a breakthru - oh yeah

Breakthru, these barriers of pain
Breakthru, to the sunshine from the rain
Make my feelings known towards you
Turn my heart inside and out for you now
Somehow I have to make this final breakthru, now!

Your smile speaks books to me
I break up with each and every one of your looks at me
Honey you're starting something deep inside of me
Honey you're sparking something, this fire in me
I'm outta control, I wanna rush headlong into this ecstasy

If I could only reach you
If I could make you smile
If I could only reach you
That would really be a breakthru

If I could only reach you
If I could make you smile
If I could only reach you
That would really be a breakthru breakthru breakthru

INVISIBLE MAN
I'M FROM HEAVEN

02:05 

ОДНА ИЗ ЛУЧШИХ ПЕСЕН ГРУППЫ...

INVISIBLE MAN
I'M FROM HEAVEN
"Killer Queen" (Mercury)


She keeps Moet et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet
'Let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built-in remedy
For Kruschev 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, gelatine
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 Geisha Minah
Then again incidentally
If you're that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from Paris
For cars she couldn't care less
Fastidious and precise

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

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

ПРОСТО ХОРОШАЯ ПЕСНЯ...

INVISIBLE MAN
I'M FROM HEAVEN
It's Late(May)

Scene 1
You say you love me
And I hardly know your name
And if I say I love you in the candle light
There's no one but myself to blame
But there's something inside
That's turning my mind away
Oh how I could love you
If I could let you stay

Chorus:
It's late - and I'm bleeding deep inside
It's late - is it just my sickly pride
Too late - even now the feeling seems to slip away

So late - though I'm crying I can't help but hear you say
It's late It's late It's late
But not too late

Scene 2
The way you love me
Is the sweetest love around
But after all this time
The more I'm trying
The more I seem to let you down
Now you tell me you're leaving
And I just can't believe it's true
Oh you know that I can love you
Though you know I can't be true

Hammer to Fall (May)

Here we stand or here we fall
History won't care at all
Make the bed, light the light
Lady Mercy won't be home tonight.

You don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
We're just waiting
For the hammer to fall

Oh every night, and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
But lift your face, the Western Way -
Build your muscles as your body decays.

You don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
We're just waiting
For the hammer to fall

Tow the line and play their game
Let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know it's time for the Hammer to Fall.

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it's all the same
Lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane
Baby now your struggle's all vain.

For we who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the Mushroom Cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
We just wanna scream it louder and louder

You don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
We're just waiting
For the hammer to fall

What the hell are we fighting for?
Just surrender and it won't hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
While you're waiting for the Hammer to Fall.

"Friends Will Be Friends" (Mercury/Deacon)



Another red letter day,
So the pound has dropped and the children are creating,
The other half ran away,
Taking all the cash and leaving you with the lumber,
Got a pain in the chest,
Doctors on strike what you need is a rest.

It's not easy love, but you've got friends you can trust,
Friends will be friends,
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
Friends will be friends,
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hand cos friends will be friends right till the end.

Now it's a beautiful day,
The postman delivered a letter from your lover,
Only a phone call away,
You tried to track him down but somebody stole his number,
As a matter of fact,
You're getting used to life without him in your way.

It's so easy now, cos you got friends you can trust,
Friends will be friends,
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
Friends will be friends,
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hand cos friends will be friends right till the end.

It's so easy now, cos you got friends you can trust,
Friends will be friends,
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
Friends will be friends,
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hand cos friends will be friends right till the end.

Friends will be friends,
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
Friends will be friends,
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hand cos right till the end -
Friends will be friends.

"Pain Is So Close To Pleasure" (Mercury/Deacon)


Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, oh yeah,
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life,
Ooh, Ooh, pain is so close to pleasure everbody knows,
One day we love each other then we're fighting one another all the time,
When I was young and just getting started,
And people talked to me they sounded broken hearted,
Then I grew up and got my imagination
And all I wanted was to start a new releation,
So in love but love had a bad reaction,
I was looking for good old satisfaction,
But pain is all I got when all I needed was some love and affection,
Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, yeah, yeah,
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life,
Pain and pleasure, Ooh, Ooh, pain and pleasure,
When your plans go wrong and you turn out the light,
But inside your mind you have to put up a fight,
Where are the answers that we're all searching for,
There's nothing in this world to be sure of anymore,
But if you're feeling happy someone else is always sad,
Let the sweetness on love wipe the tears from your facem
Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, I told you so,
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life,
Pain is so close to pleasure, yeah, yeah,
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life,
All your life,
Pain - pleasure.

Mad The Swine (Mercury)


I've been there before
A long time ago
But this time I wear no sandals
Ages past I gave all you people
Food and water
Three feet tall, so very small
I'm no trouble
I bring thunder and lightning
Sun and the rain
For all the people in the land
A message of love
I bring you from up above
All you children gather around
Come join your hands and sing along
They call me mad the swine
I guess I'm mad the swine
I've come to save you
Save you
Mad the swine
Mad the swine
So all you people gather around
Hold out your hands and praise the lord
I walk upon the water
Just as before
I help the meek and the mild
The believers and the blind
And all the creatures great and small
Let me take you to the river
Without a fall
Then one day you'll realise
You're all the same within his eyes
That's all I've got to say
Just like before
They call me mad the swine
Mad the swine
Come to save you
Save you
Mad the swine
Mad the swine
So all you people gather around
Hold out your hands and praise the lord
So all you people gather around
Hold out your hands and praise the lord
Don't ever fail me

Mad the swine
Come to save you
Save you

Hold out your hands and praise the lord
Hands and praise the lord

INVISIBLE MAN
I'M FROM HEAVEN
Too Much Love Will Kill You (May,Musker,Lamers)


I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone for much too long
I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between a lover and the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster 'cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you - every time

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems there's no way out this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down
How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's making sense of it
Every way I go I have to lose

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all.
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you
Every time

Too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You'd give your life you'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end...
In the end.

DRIVEN BY YOU (May)


Oh - everything I do I do for you

Oh yeah
We touch and you're afraid of me and
We burn and now I'm at your feet
High speed, but you know you're in safe hands
In the dark we make a brighter light
From one spark to the horizon wide
We trust and together we tame the land - yeah

You'd be forgiven if you think you're dreaming
But we're working night and day to make a dream come true - yeah
Everything I do is driven by you

Oh - come on babe

Oh well it's tough to make a journey through
The right stuff is dead ahead of you and me
And you know we've still got time
Hold on tight to the driving wheel
This Ride is really out of line
Raw deal, but there's no other that's worth a dime

You know I love you but you drive me crazy
'Cos you're saying all the things I want to say to you
You say
Everything I do is driven by you

Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do is driven by you

Inner children lost their way
Now they know the price you pay
I'm holding on to life with you
'Cos life without you just won't do

Driven by you

You know I'm never going to know who's dreaming
But we're working night and day to make a dream come true - yeah
Everything I do is driven by you

Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do is driven by
Driven by
Driven by you

Oh - everything I do I do for you

НЕМНОГО О FREDDIE MERCURY...

INVISIBLE MAN
I'M FROM HEAVEN
Однажды Фредди Меркьюри так вкратце описал суть привлекательности "Queen"; "Мне нравится, что после концерта "Куин" публика расходится, испытывая чувство переполненности зрелищем, приятного времяпрепровождения. Думаю, что песни "Куин" - это чистейший эскейпизм (уход от реальности), подобный просмотру хорошего фильма;: после сеанса зрители расходятся и говорят: "Как было здорово", -а потом возвращаются к своим проблемам. Я не стремлюсь изменить мир с помощью нашей музыки. В наших песнях нет скрытого смысла, за исключением некоторых песен Брайана. Мне нравится сочинять песни для развлечения, для потребления в современном духе. Публика может выбрасывать их, как использованные салфетки. Прослушал - понравилось - выбросил, потом бери следующую. Одноразовый поп? Да!"

Группу вел за собой один из ярчайших лидеров рока - Фредди Меркьюри. Он настолько яркий, что затмевал многих, хотели они этого или нет, и был шоуменом до мозга костей, его искрометный запал был неистовым... до смеха. И не случайно: ведь именно этого он и добивался, а чувство юмора Меркьюри едва ли не превосходило его голос. Королевское название для группы Фредди выбрал намеренно, однако если вся его мишурная помпезность зачастую смотрелась просто абсурдно, он, как правило, первым признавал это; несомненно и то, что он постоянно посмеивался над собой. "Я люблю поиздеваться над собой, - сказал он однажды. - Не носил бы я этих одеяний, будь я серьезным человеком. Я и держусь-то в этой жизни только потому, что люблю над собой посмеяться".

Вот качество, которое мы ищем в своих друзьях (и в себе, если не совсем оглупели), вот бесспорная причина успеха "Куин". Однако Фредди был более грандиозен, чем сама жизнь, таковыми же были и его амбиции: он хотел, чтобы "Куин" была величайшей группой всех времен, поэтому он постоянно увлекал свою команду на завоевание "новых земель", навстречу новым испытаниям. Однако существовала и теневая сторона безудержности Фредди; однажды он признался: "Излишества - часть моего существа. Скука - это болезнь. Я не могу жить без риска и напряжения".

Фредди Меркьюри умер от бронхиальной пневмонии, вызванной СПИДом. Однако мы с точностью не можем утверждать, что причиной его смерти явились "излишества", присущие стилю его жизни; нам неизвестно, когда именно Фредди стал ВИЧ-инфицированным, а также, каким путем произошло заражение - половым или неполовым. Это уже неважно. Он умер, а смерть больного СПИДом - не самая легкая. Медленное, мучительное угасание, - все те, кто хотя бы на секунду соприкоснулись в реальной жизни с жертвами этого заболевания, сразу прекращают резко осуждать чью-либо сексуальную ориентацию. После его смерти наиболее безжалостные британские бульварные газеты принялись было раздувать скандальные обстоятельства происшедшего и... быстро поняли, что они перестарались: настрой британской публики был совсем иным. Людям было безразлично, гомосексуалистом был Фредди или нет. Они ожидали, что он проживет долгую жизнь. Он записывал хорошую музыку, он был забавен, и этим все было сказано.Пожалуй, впервые после гибели Джона Леннона смерть рок-звезды потрясла публику так глубоко, новое поколение поклонников - фаны "Куин" - пережили те же чувства, что и поколение Леннона. Не впервые звезда шоу-бизнеса умирала от СПИДа. Однако впервые именно со смертью Фредди мы вдруг почувствовали, что потеряли близкого человека. Может быть, поэтому многие пересмотрели свое отношение к жертвам этой страшной чумы XX века. Жизнь Фредди бесспорно дала нашему миру немало. Он записывал хорошую музыку, он был забавен и вкладывал в это свое необъяснимое волшебство.
