Bohemian Rhapsody


Although this is one of the best songs ever written - by Queen or anyone, once I heard Bruce Dickinson singing this as a tribute to Freddy Mercury (Bruce is better known as singer from "Iron Maiden") I was spellbound. It is a more operatic version of it, with a soprana singing some of Freddie's lines, but some of the notes that Bruce hits, make me feel like I died and went to heaven. Every person I play this too thinks the same.

bruce is the best

It is a very good version indeed. Bruce gives a very personal tone to the song by not using Mercury's beautiful falsettos. I do personally prefer Axl's version (with Elton John at the Freddie Mercury Tribune Concert in 92') though.
