what is ‘belladonic haze’? I also want to know the history as well as precise meaning of the phrase.?

C'mon. I need to know the meaning of phrase and its origin/history. I know that Queen used it and I also know what belladonna is, but i need to know when used as phrase what does it mean precisely. And its history.

Kindly dont paste any more queen lyrics r references to belladona plant where you dont know exactly how they are connected. If i had to guess, i wouldn't have asked you to answer

  • The Group Queen used the words Belladoic Haze in the lyrics of this song

    I was told a million times

    Of all the troubles in my way

    How I had to keep on trying

    Little better ev'ry day

    But if I crossed a million rivers

    And I rode a million miles

    Then I'd still be where I started

    Bread and butter for a smile

    Well I sold a million mirrors

    In a shop in Alley Way

    But I never saw my face

    In any window any day

    Well they say your folks are telling you

    To be a super star

    But I tell you just be satisfied

    To stay right where you are

    Keep yourself alive keep yourself alive

    It'll take you all your time and a money

    Honey you'll survive

    Well I've loved a million women

    In a belladonic haze

    And I ate a million dinners

    Brought to me on silver trays

    Give me ev'rything I need

    To feed my body and my soul

    And I'll grow a little bigger

    Maybe that can be my goal

    I was told a million times

    Of all the people in my way

    How I had to keep on trying

    And get better ev'ry day

    But if I crossed a million rivers

    And I rode a million miles

    Then I'd still be where I started

    Still be where I started

    Keep yourself alive keep yourself alive

    It'll take you all your time and money honey

    You'll survive

    Keep yourself alive

    Keep yourself alive

    It'll take you all your time and money

    To keep me satisfied

    Do you think you're better ev'ry day

    No I just think I'm two steps nearer to my grave

    Keep yourself alive

    Keep yourself alive mm

    You take your time and take your money

    Keep yourself alive

    Keep yourself alive

    Keep yourself alive

    All you people keep yourself alive

    Keep yourself alive

    Keep yourself alive

    It'll take you all your time and a money

    To keep me satisfied

    Keep yourself alive

    Keep yourself alive

    All you people keep yourself alive

    Take you all your time and money honey

    You will survive

    Keep you satisfied

    Keep you satisfied

  • I'm thinking it has something to do with the plant belladonna, a member of the nightshade family with narcotic properties. The "haze" would refer to the effect the drug has on you.

    History? Belladonna has been used and abused for years.

  • The phrase in the song is simply saying that he loved these million women drunk on their beauty.

    The name “belladonna” means “beautiful lady,” and was chosen because of a risky practice in Italy. The belladonna berry juice was used historically in Italy to enlarge the pupils of women, giving them a striking appearance.
