I’m possessed by love — but isn’t everybody? Most of my songs are love ballads and things to do with sadness and torture and pain.

In terms of love, you’re not in control and I hate that feeling. I seem to write a lot of sad songs because I’m a very tragic person. But there’s always an element of humour at the end.

Freddie Mercury, as quoted in “I am the Champion” by Nick Ferrari in The Sun (19 July 1985), via Wikiquote – for his 70th birthday today
