    I used to think that a "Number 9 dream" was synonym for something a bit rude, such as a wet dream or something - I used to find the title funny as a result.

    But I always need Linda McCartney (as in the frozen food in the freezer which bears her name).

    Quen's first single was called "Keep Yourself Alive", but Freddie, sadly, didn't.

    Of course, "Stand by Your Man" by Tammy Wynette, who had several husbands!

    "Imagine no possessions," sang John Lennon, while in his huge mansion and surrounded by possessions!

    There are a whole load of Queen lyrics that are now ironic, especially almost all the words of Who Wants To Love Forever.

    I used to mishear "do the fandango" in Bohemian Rhapsody as "do the fan Dando" Very ironic in the long run...

    Elton John's "Kiss the Bride" is also an ironic title considering that he now has a husband.

    No irony there, he knew he was dying then...

    Especially as Queen fan Barry Bulsara (he changed his surname to Freddy Mercury's real surname!) was originally found guilty of her murder.
