Spread your little wings and fly away

Spread Your Wings – Queen (1977) Audiophile 96kHz/24bit FLAC HD 1080p Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

“Spread Your Wings” was released on Queen’s sixth studio album, News of the World, in October of 1977. This album contained the hit songs “We Will Rock You”, “We Are the Champions” and “Spread Your Wings”, it went 4x platinum in the United States, and achieved high certifications around the world, selling over 6 million copies. News of the World is Queen’s highest selling studio-album to date.

“Spread Your Wings” was written by bassist John Deacon. The piano is played by Mercury, although Deacon mimes it in the music video. The video was filmed at Taylor’s house at that time in his backyard, when the weather was freezing, and the band were performing in the snow. Mercury can be seen wearing star-shaped sunglasses in the video. May is seen playing a copy of his Red Special due to the cold weather conditions. Also, Taylor can be seen singing in the video despite the fact that there are no backing vocals in the song. It was the first Queen single without harmony vocals.

I pulled up three Queen promo videos to play around with and maybe work up, I decided to do “Bohemian Rhapsody” (my last upload) and didn’t plan on anything with the other two….now it looks like they all may all make it into new videos for my channel…well, one for sure! 😉 This is a really great Queen song that could never quite bear the weight of the two epic hugely popular tracks released as a single before it. Although it made it to #34 on UK charts, I guess it didn’t chart over here in the US, at least I never remember hearing a single for it being played.

Thanks for watching!

As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone whose art made this new art possible…..THANK YOU!!!

[Lyrics]
Sammy was low
Just watching the show
Over and over again
Knew it was time
He’d made up his mind
To leave his dead life behind
His boss said to him
Boy you’d better begin
To get those crazy notions right out of your head
Sammy who do you think that you are
You should’ve been sweeping up the Emerald bar

Spread your wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Spread your little wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Pull yourself together
‘Cause you know you should do better
That’s because you’re a free man

He spends his evenings alone in his hotel room
Keeping his thoughts to himself he’d be leaving soon
Wishing he was miles and miles away
Nothing in this world nothing would make him stay

Since he was small
Had no luck at all
Nothing came easy to him
Now it was time
He’d made up his mind
This could be my last chance

His boss said to him now listen boy
You’re always dreaming
You’ve got no real ambition you won’t get very far
Sammy boy don’t you know who you are
Why can’t you be happy at the Emerald bar

So honey
Spread your wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Spread your little wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Pull yourself together
‘Cause you know you should do better
That’s because you’re a free man
Come on honey
