Songinfo

Headlong was de 3de single van het album Innuendo. In Engeland kwam de single tot nummer 14 maar in ons land bleef de single steken in de Tipparade. Iets wat sinds eind 1986 niet meer was voorgekomen. Toen kwam Who Wants To Live Forever ook niet in de Top 40. Dit gebeurde wel in 1992 na het overlijden van zanger Mercury. Ook in de Verenige Staten werd Headlong geen hit.

Trivia

Wist je dat? In 1990 werd er hard gewerkt aan het album Innuendo. Ook eind van dat jaar werd de video geschoten voor het nummer Headlong. We zien de band aan het werk in de studio en een performance wordt gegeven. In 1991 verscheen Headlong op single met een 14de plaats in Engeland maar in ons land werd de Top 40 niet gehaald en bleef de single in de Tipparade steken, Iets wat vrijwel nooit voorkwam. In de jaren 80 gebeurde dit 2 keer met It's A Hard Life en Who Wants To Live Forever. Die laatste werd in 1992 alsnog een hit. De b-kant All God's People stamt uit 1987 en kwam voort uit de Barcelona sessies die Freddie samen deed met operazangeres Montserrat Caballé. Op de CD single van Headlong stond wel een heel bijzondere bonustrack. Namelijk één van de eerste niet gebruikte albumtracks Mad The Swine uit 1972.

Songtekst

And you're rushing headlong you've got a new goal
And you're rushing headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
But there ain't no stopping
And there's nothin' you can do about it
Nothin' you can do no there's nothin' you can do about it
No there's nothin you can nothin' you can nothin' you can do about it

And you're rushing headlong you've got a new goal
And you're rushing headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
But there ain't no stopping no there's nothin' you can do about it
Yeah

Hey he used to be a man with a stick in his hand
Hoop diddy diddy - hoop diddy do
She used to be a woman with a hot dog stand
Hoop diddy diddy - hoop diddy do
Now you've got soup in the laundry bag
Now you've got strings you're gonna lose your rag
You're gettin' in a fight
Then it ain't so groovy when you're screaming in the night
Let me out of this cheap B movie

Headlong down the highway and you're rushing
Headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
But there ain't no stopping and you can't stop rockin'
And there's nothin you can nothin' you can nothin' you can do about it

When a red hot man meets a white hot lady
Hoop diddy diddy - hoop diddy do
Soon the fire starts raging gets you more than half crazy
Hoop diddy diddy - hoop diddy do
Now they start freaking everywhere you turn
You can't start walking cause your feet got burned
It ain't no time to figure wrong from right
Cause reason's out of the window better hold on tight

You're rushing headlong
Headlong out of control - yeah
And you think you're so strong
But there ain't no stopping
And there's nothin you nothin' you nothin' you can do about it at all

Yeah yeah
Alright - go

And you're rushing headlong down the highway
And you're rushing headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
But there ain't no stopping
There's nothin nothin' nothin' you can do about it

Ah ha
Headlong
Yeah yeah yeah
