Somebody To Love

A Personal Favourite

Queen sang "Somebody to Love". It was ok. But Anne Hathaway sang it better in Ella Enchanted, and I really liked it. Besides, Anne Hathaway has a very striking resemblance to my oldest daughter Marnie, though I personally think Marnie is more beautiful.

I posted this last fall, and saw the movie the other night with My Dear Wife.  I was about to do a posting on it, when I thought to check out my blog to see if it would be something new or if I had done it before.  So, I just changed the date on the posting and added this paragraph.  Still love the song

Here's the lyrics:
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
Each morning I get up I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet
Take a look in the mirror and cry
Lord what you're doing to me
I have spent all my years in believing you
But I just can't get no relief, Lord!
Somebody, somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

I work hard every day of my life
I work till I ache my bones
At the end I take home my hard earned pay all on my own -
I get down on my knees
And I start to pray
Till the tears run down from my eyes
Lord - somebody - somebody
Can anybody find me - somebody to love?

(He works hard)

Everyday - I try and I try and I try -
But everybody wants to put me down
They say I'm goin' crazy
They say I got a lot of water in my brain
Got no common sense
I got nobody left to believe
Yeah - yeah yeah yeah

Oh Lord
Somebody - somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat
I'm ok, I'm alright
Ain't gonna face no defeat
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
Someday I'm gonna be free, Lord!

Find me somebody to love
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
Here's the song:

Wonderful! I always loved this song. Actually, I think Freddie Mercury was an incredible composer and performer. But this really is a wonderful version of this song.
