Freddie Mercury (lead singer of the band Queen) was not only a great performer and singer, but a great songwriter too. His lyrics spoke to me on new levels, I used them as a personal bible. Performances consisted of glitter, consumes, and capes; raging with Freddie’s own unique personality. His singing range was nearly 4 octaves and felt like heaven to listen to.
In my books, he is a legend. Everything about him screams rebellion and being different. He wasn’t scared to be who he was. And he had an amazing mustache.
Can you name one person who doesn’t know nearly all the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody?
Tell me you can’t sit still while listening to “I Want to Break Free”!!
What sports team hasn’t listened to “We Are the Champions” after a big game?
“The awesomeness of Freddie even inspired the Swiss to build a statue of him. Every year hundreds of thousands of fans make a pilgrimage there to eat the sweet piece of pie that is the same shape and consistency that Freddie is on the pie chart of modern society. These pieces look much like Pacman with a closed mouth because Freddie Mercury isn’t just part of society. Freddie Mercury is the society.”
(That fact is from http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Freddie_Mercury)
If you can look me in the eye and tell me that isn’t freaking awesome, there is probably something wrong with you. He has fans after so many years of being dead. Now when’s the last time you heard the song “Call me Maybe?”
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
