Queen - It's Late (video clip)

Written by : Brian May

Album :News of the World(1978)



"It's Late" is a hard rock song written by Queen guitarist Brian May and performed by the band for their 1977 album News of the World. The song was May's idea of treating a song as a three-act theatrical play, and the verses are called "acts" in the lyrics sheet. It makes use of the tapping technique one year before Eddie Van Halen supposedly "invented" it, although May told Guitarist Magazine in 1982 that he was inspired by an unnamed bar-band guitarist from Texas. The song is notable for its length and heavy, bluesy guitar riff, using the previously mentioned technique.

The song was released as a single in the US in 1978, albeit in heavily edited form, and peaked at #72 on the Billboard charts. The song was later included on the Queen Rocks compilation in 1997, and a new video was produced using footage of Las Vegas and prostitutes, intercut with live performances of the song. As the song is about a man who falls in love with a woman but is too shy to tell her, this video might imply that the man might have fallen in love with a stripper or a prostitute.
