Queen, the British rock band, was originally made up of two musical geniuses, a gifted bassist/songwriter, and an extraordinary drummer. Freddie Mercury wore the crown. He was the king of Queen. Brian May was the other musical genius. He wrote a masterpiece called Keep Yourself Alive (1973). It is a very serious joke. Its message is both simple and complex. This song is medicine with a spoonful of sugar. Listen to it when you need to get well soon.
