As a joke a few days ago I shared an awful cover of a Queen song on Facebook, so in apology I give you Marc Martel singing the beautiful Queen song, “Somebody to Love”.
And as a bonus here’s an amazing rendition of Nessun Dorma. Wow, just wow.
All this found at the same time I find out that Freddie Mercury’s mother, Jer Bulsara has died at the age of 94. RIP.
What’s the chance I’d come across this after listening to this song earlier today on a Google Music instant mix? You might say.. Nah, you wouldn’t.
Reports are that Prince has died at the age of 57. Time to resurrect this classic. I love the song, not so much the video..
The soundtrack Prince created for Batman The Movie (1989) is still my favourite soundtrack, followed in quick succession by the Matrix soundtracks..
From that article above, check out Prince on the guitar in this song, WOW.
Here’s rather impressive remix of the Xenon 2 Megablast main title tune created by a talented banjo player!
Long time readers may remember I used the original music in a video for a short but fun game of Bad Company 2. We joined a game with nobody on the other side so we had fun with the crates, grenades, bullets and smoke. Looking at the date on the video I can’t believe that was almost six years ago!
I always associate David Bowie with Queen and Freddie Mercury after hearing the amazing “Under Pressure”.
I’ve even heard a bootleg version recorded in the studio where both singers are clearly heard talking to each other.
So, to me it’s appropriate to mark the passing away of the legendary singer David Bowie with the video of his recently released song “Lazarus”, and Queen’s “These Are The Days of our Lives” where Mercury was visibly gaunt mere months before his own death.
But let’s finish on a high note with “Under Pressure” 🙂
Ouch. I hope he gets some satisfaction soon.
I can’t imagine ever spending the equivalent of $60,000 on a car. It’d get you a lot less in Ireland as well. Yay for VRT!
This is a great song but I’m slightly baffled by her leaving her daughter for the day to go to a music concert and the daughter is still in bed when she comes home…
Still, it’s only a music video, and “Wake Me Up” by Avicii is a great song.
That song is going around and around in my head now..
