Facts: '39 is a song by British rock band Queen. It was released on the album A Night at the Opera on 21 November 1975. It is also the B-Side to You're My Best Friend.
The song relates the tale of a group of space explorers who embark on what is, from their perspective, a year-long voyage. Upon their return, however, they realise that a hundred years have passed, because of the time dilation effect in Einstein's special theory of relativity, and the loved ones they left behind are now all dead or aged.
The song was written by guitarist Brian May, who also takes lead vocals instead of Freddie Mercury. May had asked bassist John Deacon to play double bass as a joke but a couple of days later he found Deacon in the studio with the instrument, and he had already learned to play it.
How I came across it personally is by finally listening to the LP my cousin gave me years ago, and I just found it my favorite song on the album, granted it's not nearly as well known, famous, or probably even liked.
: I'm an MLP fan and I enjoy plenty of airplanes, and music. I have a SoundCloud and a Tumblr account. I am a musician and I make my own music as well as cover songs. I have a bass, an electric, and 2 acoustic guitars, 2 keyboards, a drum set, low budget mikes, and a PC with audio programs to mix it all. I can/used to sing in 19 languages (I doubt it sounds that good). Music is my drug, my addiction. I never leave home without my iPod. My favorite bands/artists are a-ha, The Verve, Green Day, Marilyn Manson, Cocteau Twins, and Nirvana. The songs I write personally are heavily influenced by them. My favorite styles of music are pretty much everything except rap, but my fav's are Punk rock, Alternative Rock, Dream Pop/Shoegazing, Psychedelic Rock, Industrial Metal, and pop.
I been drawing for over 6 years or so now, and I do not consider myself a visual artist in any way.
I value individuality very highly; I am a registered Libertarian. I keep an open mind about religion; I am an Agnostic. I draw what I feel like, and that could be anything and everything, meaning if it's sexy, it is, if it's ugly, it is, if it's cute, it is, if it's controversial, it is.
I have a lifelong dream of being a pilot, of some sort. Currently I am studying to eventually become a Computer Technician with hopes of sticking to it and moving up the ladder.
