GPT-2 Beatles song inspired by Bohemian Rhapsody

03/08/2021

This song composed by GPT-2, trained on The Beetles back catalogue lyrics, inspired by the opening lines of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody: Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

This feels like there could be 2 songs here, but I’m leaving them together in recognition of the different sections of Bohemian Rhapsody 🙂
Really impressed with how this generates a chorus.

you wake up in a daze.

What have I done, why have I not acted on my feelings?
Feeling all wrong, I know this is not what it’s like to be you.
You’ve got a high speaking fee, a high salary, and no time for charity,
You don’t really care.

In a state of anxiety and exhaustion, at your wit’s end, you walk over to a tree and look around.
What do you see?
A flame.
So what have you done?
You’ve run headlong, lost your way, now you’re back in the jungle,
Where you must learn to fly.
What a drag, you must have lost your mind.
How has it gone, how has it gone?

I wonder, if there’s anybody I can turn to,
Help me to see what it’s really like,
Isn’t there somebody I can turn to,
I can tell them I’ve met her,
Help me to see what it’s really like,
Isn’t there anybody I can turn to,
I can tell them I’ve met her.

Can’t you see, you’re in love with me,
How can you behave so,
Can’t you see, you’re in love with me,
How can you behave so,
Won’t you help me see,

I need you so,
Won’t you help me see?
Won’t you help me see?

You make me sad,
I love you,
Won’t you make me sad,
I love you,
Won’t you make me sad?
You make me sad,
I love you,
Won’t you make me sad?

You’ll be mine, just by the way you sing
And I’ll be your rock and roll,
And you’ll be mine, just by the way you sing
And I’ll be your rock and roll,
Yeah you’ll be mine, baby, yeah.

You make me sad,
I love you,
Won’t you make me sad,
I love you,
Won’t you make me sad?
You make me sad,
I love you,
Won’t you make me sad?
You make me sad,
I love you,
Won’t you make me sad?

Crazy girl riding a black mare.
Feeling so close to you but no.
Looking so much deeper than you know,
So she can know you better when you’re asleep.
How can she know I’m trying to be so different.

So little is she, baby.
She shows me no more, she shows me no more.
You feel so much better, you know I love you,
But you know I need you in this world,
You need me in this world,
I need you in this world.

When we first met you were as free as a bird
But you can’t seem to keep your hands to yourself.
Then I had to tell you one more time,
I don’t care if it’s a lie,
I need you in my life,
And if I’m wrong you’re free to go.

In your dreams I’ve got that one guy,
Come and see me standing there in love with you.
And every day I catch glimpses of you all around me,
Though I know I don’t really want to,
Not that I’m looking for a lover but I know I want to.

When you first met me, I was just a beggin’ at the door
