Freddie Mercury The King of Queen

 
Queen, one of the best rock music bands – their music has been always close to my heart.  
Growing up in Poland I used to love when songs like ‘Radio Ga Ga’, ‘One Vision’, ‘Another Bites the Dust’, ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Killer Queen’ or one of the most beautiful songs of all ‘Somebody To Love’  were popping up on TV or in the radio.

There are so many great songs by Queen that are not so popular, I really love ‘Spread Your Wings’, ’39’ or ‘White Queen’; (2 last ones are awesome in live versions) 

 

Thank God our TV didn’t ban (US MTV did ban it at that time) one of my favorite songs ‘I Want To Break Free’, the video is hilarious and just shows great personality and sense of humor Freddie Mercury had. I mean, who else would end the song with words “give me fried chicken” (One Vision)

 

‘One Vision’ – Youtube video of making that video is so funny too!

Besides super playful personality the lead singer was an amazing musician, singer and song writer, his voice was so beautiful, powerful and it’s range spanned four full octaves which is unusual.  Freddie Mercury had one of the most recognisable voices in pop and rock history.

 

He was an art student and and art lover that shows in his fashion taste and outfits especially in 70’s. My favorite part of Freddie’s fashion style in the 80’s are his jeans and the fact he always had a great pair of sneakers on. Absolutely in love with his look during the concert at Wembley stadium in 1986, every single piece of that outfit was perfectly put together.

He has recorded an opera album with Spanish opera singer Montserrat Caballe and the single Barcelona that was was featured at the 1992 Summer Olympics. He’s never taken any singing lessons but he did take piano lessons as a kid in boarding school in India.

“I dress to kill, but tastefully” – Freddie Mercury

Freddie was a great performer who could have the whole stadium in the palm of his hand, he was a perfectionist and not to mention he was so handsome! I’m not huge fan of mustache but Freddie’s it’s a different story… His “duck” face is also the ONLY one acceptable 😉

There was so much greatness about Queen and Freddie but one thing that shows his professionalism and strength that sticks in my mind is when Freddie was already so ill with Aids when the band recorded ‘Show Must Go On’ song in 1990 just several months before Freddie’s death. Brian May (lead guitarist of Queen) had concerns as to whether Freddie was physically capable of singing it. Recalling Mercury’s performance, May states; “I said, ‘Fred, I don’t know if this is going to be possible to sing.’ And he went, ‘I’ll fuckin’ do it, darling’ — vodka down — and went in and killed it, completely lacerated that vocal.”

Speaking of Brian, we can all agree his guitar sound was very recognizable with it’s unique tone. Brian as a teenager has built his electric guitar with his dad as they could not afford to get one. How great is that?

Recent movie Bohemian Rhapsody has totally refreshed Queen music and I was so excited to see it. Although it’s not a documentary this movie was very well made and shows the good part of band’s history and Freddie’s life. Definitely great watch if you haven’t seen it yet.

And here are my two absolute favorite songs by Queen. Both live versions where you can hear how beautiful and powerful was Freddie’s voice. Enjoy!

As a maker I could not pass the opportunity and had to create few pieces that would honor Queen’s music and admiration for Freddie Mercury. Here is the new Queen necklace; handmade gold filled disc with sterling silver crown soldered in the middle of Q. Inspired by Queen’s logo.

    Hi Gosia,

    Love your jewelry and love your taste in music even more. I can’t make my mind up between the Queen necklace and the Freddie Mercury necklace . Since you have seen them both which do you recommend? Thank you so much and keep up the great work ! Take care.

      Hi Sherry! Thank you so much for your comment and the kindest words! Means so much to me! So happy to hear you’re loving Queen music! Both necklaces are really nice but my personal favorite is Freddie’s signature one. It’s super classy and Freddie’s signature is so beautiful. The disc measures 3/4″ so it’s a nice size. It’s also quite thick which makes the quality even better. I’m happy to personalize the length for you too anywhere from choker style to extra long look. I own 2 of them on my own as I wasn’t able to decide on the length and sometimes I like to wear 15″ one and sometimes 20″, both are amazing! 🙂
