SPREAD YOUR WINGS
“…Now it was time,
he made up his mind,
this could be my last chance...”
Queen's 1977 album 'News Of The World' featured the underrated track "Spread Your Wings", penned by the band's bassist John Deacon.
The song deals with Sammy, who has dreams to move away and pursue his goals. Sammy is desperate to leave town and explore his options elsewhere. His boss attempts to dissuade him, urging Sammy to accept his dead end life. The narrator encourages him to make his move and move on.
