Cover vs. Original

The Great Pretender


That is a difficult decision. Without doubt a great Freddie Mercury against the charm of the original. An awesome song in two awesome versions. I think the version by The Platters is a little bit better.

The Platters version is wonderful. Clean and simple. But Freddie, with his natural showmanship and superior voice, puts this contest out of reach. The world misses you Freddie.
To Rash and Farookh(who used Freddie's real name): your comments are childish and irrelevant. Grow up.

I hope that Rash from Chicago is joking, or that he has drunk a bit too much, or that he is 3 years old...
if none he is a fucking asshole and doesn't even know what music means, and he can't understand that Freddie Mercury was one of the greatest singer in all the fuckin' history!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I first heard this cover I wished somebody killed Freddie. It wasn't necessary after all.
