Freddie Mercury wrote this song as a dedication to John Lennon. The music emulates different John Lennon song styles, and the lyrics are mostly about Freddie's realization that John was dead, and how real life was. "Life is Real" is related to the John Lennon lyric "Love is Real."
The death of John Lennon sparked Queen to play "Imagine" during concerts, something they did during their tour with Paul Rodgers.

This song took on a new life after Freddie Mercury's death, and is now regularly performed as a tribute to Mercury as well as Lennon - particularly when performed by Kerry Ellis and Brian May on their tours (notably the Born Free tour) where a montage of Freddie Mercury images would play on screens behind the artists.
Adam Greenwood from FreelingI really loved this song. I really don't know why people hated the Hot Space album because Hot Space was a good a Album as any other album by queen. all the albums were awesome
Bridget from CoLove this song. Don't care that Freddie said the b-word at all. I normally don't like songs with bad words, but this is an exception. It probably always will be.
"Whole Lotta Love" was Led Zeppelin's only US Top 10 hit, charting at #4. Many of their songs, including "Stairway To Heaven," were not released as singles, as it was considered bad form in England to make people pay for singles that were on albums.
Boston leader Tom Scholz went back to his job at Polaroid after releasing the group's debut album. When his co-workers kept coming by to tell him "More Than A Feeling" was playing on the radio, he knew it was time to quit his day job.
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
