: Hello,
: I am interested in the meaning of the sentence :"I am not my usual TOP BILLING". It is from Queen's song "I'm going slightly mad".
: I would be thankful if you replied to this mail.

I couldn't find this phrase in my books. But here's what I think it means: "Top billing" means that an entertainer or a group is listed at the top of a poster or theater marquee advertising the show. It means he/they are the No. 1 act.
