The following is a mega-mash up atop Chic’s “Good Times”. It includes Rilo Kiley’s “Portions For Foxes”, David Bowie & Queen’s “Under Pressure”, Pixies’ “Here Comes Your Man”, Men At Work’s “Down Under”, Taylor Swift’s “Our Song”, Alec Baldwin from Glengarry Glen Ross, Hall & Oates’ “Maneater”, Blondie’s “Rapture”, and T. Rex’s “Bang A Gong (Get It On)”.
It is time to acknowledge that Freddy Mercury’s voice transcends the fabric of time and space. If I had to pinpoint and define the importance of his role in music history, I would liken it to the best breakfast of my life. And that, my friend, is a novel currently in the works.
