William Price King in concert – The Show Must Go On by Brian May and Queen

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

This poignant song by Queen and largely written by Brian May, is one that the band’s following will always associate with the loss of Freddy Mercury. It was the final track on their 1991 album Innuendo and refers to the efforts Freddy made to perform in the last weeks of his life as he struggled with the complications caused by AIDS. He was very ill when he recorded the song and there were doubts as to whether he could perform. The song was released as a single six weeks before he died and was in the charts twice.. Once again after his death. It was first played live in 1992 for The Freddy Mercury Tribute Concert with Elton John singing lead vocals.  The Show Must Go On…..appropriate indeed.

Here is William Price King with his beautiful version of this track that means so much to Queen fans around the world.

Is life after death really a mystery?

Born into this world with nowhere to hide

Is what is gone before really history?

Life is somewhat of a symmetry

Question as you are carried along on life’s tide

Is life after death really a mystery?

The road through life is filled with uncertainty

Work very hard at keeping onside

Is what is gone before really history?

Through life’s ups and downs maintain your sanity

With so much speculation we can never decide

Is life after death really a mystery?

Never knowing what is our destiny

Life’s begrudger’s continue to deride

Is what is gone before really history?

When on our deathbed what will be will be

Talk of the afterlife try to avoid

Is life after death really a mystery?

Is what is gone before really a mystery?
