Don't Stop Me Now Lyrics

Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world it's turning inside out Yeah!
I'm floating around in ecstasy
So don't stop me now don't stop me
'Cause I'm having a good time having a good time

I'm a shooting star...

    This song was written by Freddie Mercury while he was at the height of his career. It's about him enjoying his life and living free. It's also about him traveling on tour and having a lot of sex with various partners. He was kind of going out of control with his fun and when his friends would try to calm him down he would argue against them. Hence, "Don't Stop Me Now". It was during this time that he contracted HIV and later died from it. The guitarist for Queen, Brian Mays, dislikes this song very much because of the meaning it has and the consequences Freddie and all of Queen had to suffer based upon the "Don't Stop Me Now" mindset Freddie had during that time.

    It's about him saying no matter what he's going to have a fucking great time regardless of what you say to him.

    A song about somebody that decided to start his life being happy and gay, not necessarily developing towards the homosexual way ''yet', but maybe as the out of control way of the neurotic. Made to be sext up and confused with temptation in bisexuality. In any case, a person full of personal happiness for just being joyfully alive to give it's love now to whoever's sex appeal would come along to have fun and go all the way in whatever kind of sex comes along and to ''knot'' have his disires stopped. Or, unless in otherwords ''don't stop me now'' is a song expressing and ideolizing the sexual freedom of what happening around him then in temptation. To experience the power of the egotistical ideology of homosexuality that was influenally glamorized within the sex revolution. Which was after perverting's men's conservative ass and whatever. To which the individual's normal way of life was lead in many cases to be ''converted abnormally'' to become another asshole or whatever for ''The Craze of Pansexuality'' liberal culture of the left that was on the rise back then. All in the name for equal rights that is and the freedom in need to have our souls saved.

    Those of you who say this is about homosexuality, drugs, and other common interpretations are wrong. Obviously enough, he mentions men and weomen, so this song would have to be bisexual, but I would rather think that it is not about sexual preference or drugs. Truly, he just feels good, like when you just feel like nothing can go wrong.

    As somebody has already rightly pointed out, and I thought it pretty well known, it was written after he rogered a huge number of Brazilian Rent Boys - whilst taking a shed load of coke.

    it's about sex, what do you thing that it means when he says "i'll turn it inside-out YEAH" he says that he's a racing car pasing by like "lady goddiva" (a woman who rided a horse across her city NUDE) and that he's a rocket ship ( a cock) like an atom bomb "about to explode ( he's about to cum), and he's 200 degrees hot!!.
    now tell me, who the fuck want to be stopped while having sex?? he also admit that he's not gay, but bisexual, he wants to turn a man AND a woman into a "supersonic man/woman" i think it's all i could deduce.

    It's about him doing what he wants, what makes him happy, and how he's not letting anyone stop him.

    What a gay fuck? It's pretty obvious that the song is about a very happy guy, in ecstasy, at the speed of light. So self confident that he defies the law of gravity

    this song is clearly about promiscuous activity. what do you think mars is when he says "i'm a rocket ship on my way to mars". its obviously a mans prostate being that he is gay, and mars and a prostate is red, and a rocket ship is a penis. he also speaks of having sex with women, a so called " i'm gonna make a super sonic woman out of you".

    Again I state like the others about sex but I believe most of Freddies work was all about fun and the magic was how people could relate to it by making there own assumptions in fact when asked he said roughlyy that
