  • queen'in afrika'daki aclar icin cikardigi single..
  • (bkz: keepalive)
  • 1973 tarihli ilk queen albumunun* neseli ve yuksek tempolu acilis sarkisi ve ayni zamanda grubun ilk single'i. afrikadaki aclarla olan ilgisi hakkinda hic bir fikrimin olmadigi bu brian may sarkisi bir cok konserde calinmis ve bir konser klasigi olmustur fakat kanimca ilk single olmasindan gayri pek bir ozelligi yoktur.

    i was told a million times
    of all the troubles in my way
    tried to grow a little wiser
    little better every day
    but if i crossed a million rivers
    and i rode a million miles
    then i'd still be where i started
    bread and butter for a smile
    well i sold a million mirrors
    in a shop in alley way
    but i never saw my face
    in any window any day
    well they say your folks are telling you
    to be a superstar
    but i tell you just be satisfied
    to stay right where you are

    keep yourself alive keep yourself alive
    it'll take you all your time and a money
    honey you'll survive

    well i've loved a million women
    in a belladonic haze
    and i ate a million dinners
    brought to me on silver trays
    give me everything i need
    to feed my body and my soul
    and i'll grow a little bigger
    maybe that can be my goal
    i was told a million times
    of all the people in my way
    how i had to keep on trying
    and get better every day
    but if i crossed a million rivers
    and i rode a million miles
    then i'd still be where i started
    same as when i started

    keep yourself alive keep yourself alive
    it'll take you all your time and a money
    honey you'll survive

    keep yourself alive
    keep yourself alive
    it'll take you all your time and a money
    to keep me satisfied
    do you think you're better every day?
    no i think i'm two steps nearer to my grave
    keep yourself alive
    keep yourself alive mm
    you take your time and take more money
    keep yourself alive
    keep yourself alive
    keep yourself alive
    all you people keep yourself alive
    keep yourself alive
    keep yourself alive
    it'll take you all your time and money
    to keep me satisfied
    keep yourself alive
    keep yourself alive
    all you people keep yourself alive
    take you all your time and money
    honey you'll survive

    keep you satisfied
    keep you satisfied
  • queen'in ilk gunlerinde freddie'nin salkimli sacakli, pembeli beyazli kiyafetler icerisinde bu sarkiyi icra ederken sahnede kiritaraktan okudugu

    "give me everything i need to feed my body and my soul"

    dizesi ile the show must go on haykirisi arasindaki oldukca ironik baga parmak basmak ister deli gonul.
  • freddie mercury nin figürlerinin şekillendiği,vokalinin ortaya çıktığı ilk şarkı ve kliptir..
  • yngwie malmsteen tarafindan coverlanan bir versiyonu da vardir.
  • şarkının ortalarında roger taylor ve brian mayin güzel birer solosu vardır.laf ola atılmış değildir bu sololar,kısa olmalarına rağmen hakikaten şarkıya çok şey katarlar.
  • queen rock montreal albumunde acaip gaz bir davul-bass solosuyla baslayan versiyonu da bulunan halk turkusu.
  • basindaki riff teomanin resimdeki gozyaslari coverinda kullanilmistir.
  • emi alışık olmadık bir şekilde queen'e yayınlanacak olan ilk single'larını kendilerinin belirlemesini ister. plak şirketi normalde bu seçimi kendisi yapardı. ve queen ilk single'ı olarak keep yourself alive'ı seçer. listelere giremeyip olumsuz eleştiriler almış olsa da queen'in ilkidir. ve gayet de güzel bir çalışmadır.
