Fun Fact: This song is sung in a gospel style, with the voices of Freddie Mercury,Brian May and Roger Taylor multi-tracked to sound like a choir. According to May, the gospel sound was inspired by the music of Aretha Franklin. Mercury wrote this. The lyrics reflect a man calling out to God, asking why he works so hard, but can’t find love. At the end of the song, he finds hope and decides he will not accept defeat.
