    das wahre LEben (the) real life

    Kommentar
    das wahre Leben - real life

    This is a half-general, so my question would be if it is more natural to use the article or not.

    She showed me (the) real life.

    Just when I decided to drop the article this Queen song occured to me whose lyrics go something like "Is this the real life or just fantasy?" (Bohemian Rhapsody)

    So how do native speakers feel about this? Article or no article?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    it would be more natural not to use the article, but in Bohemian Rhapsody the article works because a) for rhythmic reasons (it would sound strange to hear him sing "is thi-his real life") and b) because it makes you think of this "life" as something tangible, something you can look at in its entirety, like looking at a television.

    IMO
