(They did this song on Glee last week)
Also I am sucker for these kinds of songs.
I FUCKING love QUEEN!
Queen is theatrical.
Queen is different.
Queen can fun, light, whimsical, and they can be deep, dark, and heartfelt.
Freddie Mercury, was well, Freddie Mercury. Such a talented man. And look at him (in the late 70's early 80's), he was some serious eye candy.
In 2004 -2005 (I think, those years seem like a blur) the hubby and I went to watch Queen+Paul Rodgers (of Bad Religion) and it was an awesome show. I remember wondering if they would attempt to do Bohemian Rhapsody, they couldn't, could they? It really had been a great show. But I was torn with wanting to hear one of my favorite Queen songs and feeling it would be sac religious.
They did play it, but a large screen with Freddie came down on the stage and the band (May and Taylor) played while Freddie sang and played the piano. It was perfect.
