I’m knitting with only one needle

Unravelling fast its true

I’m driving only three wheels these days

But my dear how about you?

…..

It finally happened oh yes

It finally happened

I’m slightly mad!

Just very slightly mad!

And there you have it!

Notice the slide guitar solo played by Brian May. For footage of Mad in the making, including the penguin, see: Queen-Making Of “I’m Going Slightly Mad” video HD part 2

  19. Tom Lee says:

  21. Rajini Rao says:


    Dan, thank you so much. It gave me the chills..goosebumps. So sad 😦


    It’s a keeper, on replay.

  22. Rajini Rao says:


    Let me try the newer link…the other kept getting hung up.

  23. Rajini Rao says:


    Same here, Dan, thanks for the last one πŸ™‚

  24. Rajini Rao says:


    LOL, on that last vid..I’ve only listened to it in my car on on my phone. Hilarious!

  25. Rajini Rao says:


    Catch you on the other side, Feisal πŸ™‚

  26. Rajini Rao says:


    Haha, this is the infamous vacuuming vid πŸ™‚

  27. Rajini Rao says:


    I’ll be up at the crack of dawn (neighbors lawnmower, first world problems, lol). Actually, the birds are too loud πŸ™‚

  28. Rajini Rao says:


    I’ll leave you with this, Feisal Kamil πŸ™‚


    Queen – Bicycle Race – Uncensored

  29. Rajini Rao says:


    From Wiki: The video for the song became scandalously famous for featuring 65 naked women, all professional models, racing at Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium. It was filmed by Dennis de Vallance. The group rented the stadium and several dozen bikes for one day for filming the scene; however, when the renting company became aware of the way their bikes were used, they requested the group to purchase all the bicycle seats.The original video uses special effects to hide the nudity.

  30. Rajini Rao says:


    Of course it does πŸ™‚ You can tell me tomorrow/later today.

  31. Rajini Rao says:


    I’m off before I start typing gibberish too, Feisal πŸ˜‰

  32. Ravi Teja says:


    “This video contains content from UMG. It is not available in your country.”


    UMG, that’s just sad.


    Everyone knits with only one needle, unless you are dealing with knitting-pro, capable of juggling needles, just because.


    But I agree that’s only ‘slightly’ mad.


    As a matter of fact, Queen’s only just the ‘right’ amount on Mad.


  33. Hahahah Oh I love it… Rajini Rao


  34. Not available in my country. Make it better, WW!

  35. Rajini Rao says:


    I couldn’t get to your version, Feisal Kamil . This sort of stuff is so mysterious to me. Anyone know of a good way to figure out access (before posting)?

  36. Rajini Rao says:


    Michelle Beissel , let us know if you got Feisal’s link.


  37. yup, listening to it now, v rich, Rajini Rao

  38. Rajini Rao says:


    Okey doke, Mahesh Sreekandath .

  39. Rajini Rao says:


    Should figure out a way to visit Johns Hopkins Malaysia (do you know it, Feisal?)

  40. Rajini Rao says:


    Oh yes, big deal. Something about bringing Hopkins medical education to Malaysia. My colleague down the hall teaches there for a few months. Another colleague is heading it ..Charlie W.


  41. When I first saw this video all those years ago, I could not understand why he was looking so gaunt and tired. It was only when I watched the documentary about him after his passing away did I learn what he had to put up with to make this video. I miss him.

  42. Rajini Rao says:


    Suhail Manzoor , it’s bittersweet to see him like this. Apparently, by the time they recorded the last song for this album he was so weak that he could barely move. Check out one of the links to No One But You/Only the Good Die Young above.

  43. Rahul Joshi says:


    I remember watching this on MTV looong ago thinking “WHY? Whats going on with these guys.” I was just a kid of course to understand the madness.


    In fact I didn’t took to Queen until much later when I heard a remix of Freddie’s genius Freddie Mercury – Living on my own [Lyrics]

  44. Rajini Rao says:


    Awesome fun vid, thanks Rahul Joshi ! I see my afternoon going down the Freddie memory lane (sigh).
