Movie : Bohemian Rhapsody


We Are The Champions….


This movie is a must see.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success.

I’ve always enjoyed the songs from this 1970’s British Rock Band and yet never really new much about them. After watching the film, I googled QUEEN and Freddie Mercury and Wow.

The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey called Mercury “the best virtuoso rock ‘n’ roll singer of all time. He could sing anything in any style. He could change his style from line to line and, God, that’s an art. And he was brilliant at it”.

A research team undertook a study in 2016 to understand the appeal behind Mercury’s voice. Led by Professor Christian Herbst, the team identified his notably faster vibrato and use of subharmonics as unique characteristics of Mercury’s voice, particularly in comparison to opera singers, and confirmed a vocal range from F#2 to G5 (just over 3 octaves) but were unable to confirm claims of a 4-octave range.

Freddie Mercury was raised in India and was forced to relocate from Zanzibar (now Tanzania) to England due to the 1964 Revolution, with his family when he was 17. He earned a diploma in Art and Graphic Design in University and designed Queens logo, called the Queen Crest, shortly before the release of the bands first Album.

The logo combines the zodiac signs of all four band members. Two lions for Leo (Deacon & Taylor), a crab for Cancer (May) and two Fairies for Virgo (Mercury). There is also a crown inside the Q and the whole logo is overshadowed by an enormous Phoenix. The wold symbol bears a resemblance to the Royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom!!!
