The song was inspired by an affair Christine McVie had with the band's lighting director, Curry Grant. "To avoid flare-ups", she told her then-husband and fellow band member, John McVie that the song was about her dog.

For Aaron in Phoenix -- https://thequietus.com/articles/31993-pale-blue-eyes-souvenirs-review Two of the three members of the band, Matt and Lucy Board, are art college graduates. With a specific reference to the late 70s experimental electronic and alternative scene (Lucy wrote her thesis on Cabaret Voltaire), they define their musical roots as modernist. This hints at different elements, both internal and external. Bassist Aubrey Simpson is said to be a Motown fan. https://paleblueeyesmusic.bandcamp.com/album/souvenirs

Somebody to Love
by George Michael with Queen
(10 plays) | (0 fans)

George Michael fronted Queen for a performance of “Somebody to Love” before thousands on April 20, 1992, at Wembley Stadium...during the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for AIDS Awareness. "The performance most well known in my career," Michael said in the documentary Freedom, "was sung to my lover who was dying." Anselmo Feleppa had just been diagnosed with AIDS, but Michael wasn’t publicly out – so his relationship with Feleppa was a secret. That left Michael to take the stage while enduring a very personal pain, even as he honored another of the disease's victims.
