Delilah (3:33)

Cover of Innuendo

From Innuendo and 3 other releases

“Delilah” is a song Mercury penned for his favourite housecat, a female tortoiseshell cat, named Delilah. May recorded his solo using a talk box.

Brian May interview, August 1991, Guitar World magazine

Brian May.: “I was pleased with the guitar on that - (mimics sound) ‘meow, meow, meow’.”

Guitar World:: “Was that played through a talkbox?”

Brian May.: “Yeah. It’s the first time. I finally succumbed and used one. They wheeled it in and I said, ‘Well, I suppose there’s no other way I can make “meow” noises.’”
