  • Valerie from Eureka, CaI guess I'm not on this site a lot...but I love Queen. They could do no wrong...but Ira, Ira, Ira, where was your head when you wrote your comment???? Coming Soon is a super good song. It's got very driving, powerful music and great lyrics. Maybe you didn't listen very much to it, what do you think?

  • AnonymousWeak period in Queens history?? The Game spawned some of their biggest hits EVER. Play The Game, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST!!! Come on Ira, think before you type.
  • Anna from Ann Arbor, MiWhat? I love this song!
    And I don't know,
    I mean, your interpretation makes sense,
    but for whatever reason,
    I don't see this as a sexual song.
    Whatever.
    I think it's a great song, anyway.
  • Ira from San Francisco, CaThis was never a good song, from a fairly weak period in Queen's history. Seems to be about Roger's astonishing sexual prowess. He's a little flustered at the task of sleeping with so many women, but at least they're all "coming soon." Or so he would have us believe.
