Just last week I installed OpenRCT2 so I’m glad Youtube showed me this fabulous roller coaster synchronised with Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody!
Mama, I just killed a man
I didn’t stay inside in bed
I walked past him, now he’s dead.
I don’t wanna die
I sometimes wish
I never went out at all.
The Finding Freddie video podcast on YouTube is a wonderful ongoing series of short videos covering different aspects of Freddie Mercury’s life.
So far there have been 4 episodes. If you’re a fan of Queen music you’ll love these!
This is a forty five minute remix of Queen music that just blows me away.
OK, this is just wonderful. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen in memes. Article 13 would have a field day. I don’t expect this video to stay up for very long so watch it as soon as you can!
Is this a hard drive?
Is this just floppy disk?

Sometimes it’s worth reading the comments on YouTube. This one from Yuan Edo.
Hyped for this. Don’t be bad. Don’t be bad. Don’t mess it up.
It’s kinda odd to think of Elliot from Mr. Robot as Freddie Mercury but this trailer is promising, unless you’re going to pick holes in every little bit of it.
I enjoyed this interview with Rami Malek on The Late Show, and here’s a video produced by the band Bulsara and His Queenies called ‘A Sheer Homage’. Wow.
If you still haven’t had enough of Queen, (and who can?) the official Queen Youtube Channel has a number of 1 hour long compilations.
Finally, and this is the coolest thing ever, User cmi on the QueenZone forum has made an expanded collection of Queen albums. You’ll probably find bits and pieces there that you’ve never heard.
In 1977 Queen released “News of the World”, and this year a 40th Anniversary Edition has been released with outtakes, alternative versions of the whole album and more. Here’s the trailer:
I found a playlist on Youtube and it’s great to hear slightly different versions of tracks I know so well but it reminds me that 2 days from now is the anniversary of Freddie Mercury’s death and that makes me sad.
An amazing cover of the Queen song, “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Peter Bence. (Thanks Ken Collins for sharing)
When you’ve listened to that, watch these two videos by Valentina Lisitsa and marvel at how fast her fingers move.
A version of Queen and David Bowie’s Under Pressure you might not have heard before.
You can hear some talking in the background. From the title I thought this was made during the recording of the song but comments on this video and another video say it’s from radio interviews. Anyone know?
Here’s a great article on the making of the song.
Though the band sounds lighthearted enough in the studio sessions, the songwriting, May remembers, was fraught with tension. “It was very hard,” he said in 2008, “because you already had four precocious boys and David, who was precocious enough for all of us.” Bowie, says May, “took over the song lyrically” and insisted on presiding over the final mix session, which “didn’t go well,” according to Queen engineer Reinhold Mack. For his part, May has said he would “love to sit down quietly on my own and re-mix it.”
