Fat bottomed girl


In 1978 I was only 16 and Queen just released their Jazz album with the memorable text:
“Oh won’t you take me home tonight?
Oh down beside your red firelight,
Oh and you give it all you got
Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin’ world go round”

Seeing this girl in the centre of Sydney today brought instant recollection of this song. Before I get hanged by politically correct crowd for publishing this photograph the artwork of Jazz record contained many naked girls on bicycles included many with clearly identifiable faces in comparison this anonymous girl’s photo is is not even poor imitation of the original.
