FlinterFile: Freddie Mercury- The Great Pretender

This song dates back to 1956, when the Platters took it to the charts. Read the rest of this entry

Queen

Queen

This band is one of the best bands in the world (or so I do think). Their music is just fantastic (although there are some songs which are not my cup of tea), and the voice of Freddie Mercury is a big part of that. The rest of the band is important, too, because what would Queen be without Brian May to play the guitar, or the drums of Roger Taylor? And then I forgot the great bass play by John Deacon.

They have had lots and lots of hits, and actually I should compile a list of the best Queen-songs. Maybe for later…

Song of the day: Queen- I Want To Break Free

Hello everyone,

Today a clip from a very famous band. Their lead singer is dead, and the band is still active, but not as good as with their lead singer.
Mostly that’s the case with passing away of group members. And this person can’t be replaced…

I’m talking about Freddie Mercury, with his band Queen. The song of today is I Want To Break Free.This clip is absolutely genious, because it represents the song. You see the members of Queen as women, playing in something like Coronation Street.
Then there’s a part with ballet in between, which is also very nice to see.

Most persons think it was the idea of Freddie Mercury to do the clip where all members are dressed up as women, but the idea actually came from Roger Taylor (That’s the story…)

I hope you like the song (and the clip), tomorrow I’ve got something else for you!
