《波西米亞狂想曲》(2006年),改編自皇后樂團最暢銷的歌曲,引用年輕殺人犯的獨白、製作出以法院為舞台背景的搖滾歌劇。值得矚目的是,演員當中除了白人飾演法官角色之外,其餘全為被告,警官則由中國、馬來西亞、印度後裔演員擔任演出。前者有下判決的法院與決定配角的錄影之雙重意義,後者也描繪出長久受到英國殖民統治下,新加坡身為多種族國家的歷史軌跡。

 
For the Bohemian Rhapsody Project (2006), the band Queen's best-selling song and the monologue of a young murderer was adapted into a rock musical with a court-house as the stage. It is worthwhile to note that his work wasn't just a recording of the performers. With the exception of the judge played by a white man, all of the other actors were the accused. The police officers were played by actors of Chinese, Malaysian and Indian descent. For the former, the recording looked both at the court handing down the decisions and deciding on the supporting cast. The latter reflected the multi-ethnic background of Singapore after spending so long under British colonial rule. 



註: 《波希米亞狂想曲》結構極為特殊,無重複的副歌,而是由幾個風格差異甚大的部分構成,包含謠曲、吉他獨奏、歌劇、硬搖滾等,並且充滿著猛烈的意識流與噩夢色彩。本曲在西方社會相當為人熟知,常被簡稱為「Bo Rhap」或「Bo Rap」。在當時,它是有史以來製作費最高的單曲,現在仍為流行音樂史上最精心設計的複雜作品之一。
NB:The structure of "Bohemian Rhapsody" is very special, without repeated chorus, but consists of several parts with very different styles, including ballads, guitar solo, opera, hard rock, etc., and is full of violent stream of consciousness and Nightmare colors. This song is quite well known in Western society, often referred to as "Bo Rhap" or "Bo Rap". At the time, it was the single with the highest production cost in history, and it is still one of the most elaborate and complex works in the history of pop music.

這就叫做真實人生嗎 ?
還是這只是一場虛幻罷了?
我已經崩潰了
你(我)是無法逃離現實的

睜開你(我)的雙眼吧!
抬頭仰望天空

我只是一個可憐的孩子,但這並不表示我需要同情
因為人生來的快,走的也快

有時高興有時傷悲

但如今不管風吹向何方,似乎都與我無關了吧...

媽,我剛剛殺了一個男人,
我拿槍對準了他的腦袋

然後扣下板機,現在他已經死了

媽, 我的人生不是才剛開始嗎?

但是此時的我已經迷失了,我什麼都無所謂了

媽...

我不是故意要惹你哭的

假如明天此時我都還沒回家的話

你一定要撐下去,一定要撐下去,就好像這件事其實無關痛癢


太遲了,時候已經到了
我的背脊都在顫抖

身體也一直疼痛
再見了 大家 我得走了
我該離你而去,面對現實了
媽..(不管風吹向何方) 
我不想死
有時候我多希望我從未誕生在這世上

我看見了一個渺小的男人身影

小丑阿小丑

你願意和我一起跳支方塊舞嗎
外頭雷電交加 我好害怕

加利略,加利略,
加利略,加利略,加利略,費加洛諸位貴族阿

而我只是個可憐的孩子, 沒有人愛我
他只是個可憐的孩子, 來自一個可憐的家庭

幫助他的靈魂掙脫身上野獸的枷鎖吧
人生來的快,走的也快

你願意放我走嗎?

天啊!你想得美, 我們怎麼可能會讓你走?
放我走吧!

天啊!我們怎麼可能會讓你走?
放我走吧!

天啊!我們怎麼可能會讓你走?

放我走吧!
我們怎麼可能會讓你走?
放我走吧!

我們怎麼可能會讓你走?
放我走吧!

天啊, 天啊, 天啊, 你們就放我走吧!

傳說中惡魔都擁有一股邪惡的力量, 而我已被它纏身
所以你認為你可以折磨我並蒙蔽我的眼嗎?
所以你覺得你可以愛我然後又離我而去嗎?
喔, 寶貝, 別這麼對我

你快點逃啊, 快點逃啊, 現在就逃吧!

什麼都無所謂了
任何人都會明白的

什麼都無所謂了, 我真的什麼都無所謂了
不管風吹向何方

Is this the real life
Is this just fantasy
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor boy,I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come,easy go,
A little high,little low,
Anyway the wind blows,doesn't really matter to me,


Mama,just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger,now he's dead,
Mama,life had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away-


Mama woo~woo~
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on,carry on,as if nothing really matters
Too late,my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time,
Goodbye everybody-I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama ooo- (anyway the wind blows)
I don't want to die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche,scaramouche
will you do the Fandango
Thunderbolt and lightning-very very frightening me
Galileo,Galileo,
Galileo,Galileo,
Galileo figaro-Magnifico

But I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come easy go
will you let me go
Bismillah! No-,we will not let you go
let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go
let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go
let me go
Will not let you go
let me go
Will not let you go
let me go
No,no,no,no,no,no,no



Mama mia,mama mia,mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me,for me,for me
So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh baby-Can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out-just gotta get right outta here

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters-,nothing really matters to me,
Any way the wind blows.
