Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday: doodle and streaming

If Freddie was alive, he'd be 65 today, because of that Google decided to pay him a tribute and made a great doodle video/animation using "Don't Stop Me Now"

www.google.com

Also, the official Queen YT channel is streaming the legendary Wembley concert of 1986.

His music will live forever.

Re: Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday: doodle and streaming

You paid your dues, time after time
You did your sentance, yet commited no crime

You said it was a challenge before all human race you would never lose

And you were right.

Queen and Freddie, only the best.

"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "

Queen's songs are still beyond amazing, puts all the modern shit to shame.

Re: Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday: doodle and streaming

I still remember the last days and months leading up to his death. AIDS was still such a taboo issue back then. 20 years gone in November, another anniversary. Haven't listened much to Queen's music for the last 10-12 years, but I used to be utterly obsessed with them in the 80s and early 90s.

Empty spaces - what are we living for?
Abandoned places - I guess we know the score..
On and on!
Does anybody know what we are looking for?

Another hero - another mindless crime.
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime.
Hold the line!
Does anybody want to take it anymore?
The Show must go on!
The Show must go on!Yeah!
Inside my heart is breaking,
My make-up may be flaking,
But my smile, still, stays on!


Yeah, Freddie, the show must go on!
