"Delilah" from the "Innuendo" album, is light-hearted and happy
song with well-composed music, with a catchy tune, about Freddie's favourite cat, hence the meouw-ing guitar. Roger didn't want it on the album, and Queen fans seem not to
like it, but this Queen fan is at a loss as to why. It's not the
first time Freddie wrote whimsical songs. It balances the heavyness of an album that's quite depressing in parts. Just why do they not like it much?

I love Queen but Delilah is the the worst Queen recording I've ever heard by a long, long way. The miaowing guitar is probably the worst part of that!

I think Delilah is a wonderful song. It's melodic, funny, playful and very 'Freddie'.

Certainly not my favourite Freddie composition but it offers some light relief on what is essentially, quite a dark album. Also, Freddie's voice breaks a little towards the end of the song and that always makes me a little sad. Not a classic but a nice nod back to the days when Queen would make more light-hearted fare in between the heavier stuff.

Delilah is a LOVELY little song. Back in my younger days when all I wanted was the heavy Queen, I would have despised it. Now older and maybe a bit wiser it is a happy catchy track which always brings a smile to my face.It is so fitting if adapted slightly to my partners (3 when I met her) Granddaughter. And I still tease her with it now she's 8 changing the words slightly from Delilah to Shaneeka

I don't like it either-I think it's TOO silly. This said it's not the worst Queen song, for me the worse tracks are on A kind of magic (funelly enough this album holds the best and the worst imho): Don't lose your head, pain is so close to pleasure and One year of love. Just awful. Even Cool cat and Back chat are masterpieces compare to those.

So anyway, I don't see Delilah as an awful song but certainly not a great one either. If I want light-hearted, I go for Lazy on a sunday afternoon or seaside rendez-vous. Those are amazing.

Dave says: Delilah and Body Language are the worst two song Queen ever wrote and recorded. I have every Queen track on my I Pod except those two. Awful.
