Day eight favourite song – Too Much Love Will Kill You

I love this song for many reasons, just as I love this band, and so many of its other songs. Freddie’s soaring vocals, the lyrics, the guitars. Yet the song’s key message resonates, as all of us navigate that gap between deprivation and hedonism, pleasure and pain, less rather than more, seeking success and fulfillment without over-reaching, achieving contentment as we strive to be better.

Finding balance, celebrating what we have, rather than mourning what we lack, or lost. The never ending challenges of living a life, whatever that means.

Yes, too much love will kill you
It’ll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won’t understand why
