Hmm..
French: Merci beaucope (tour), c'est la vie (in my defence)
Arabian: Mustapha Ibrahim

I've just found out that Freddie did speak Vietnamese: "Dee doh dee doh dee doh day" (Living on my own) meaning: Where, where, where are you going? (Dee = go, doh = where, day = there)

Hahaha. He had a good ear, that's for sure, because he sounded very good speaking in Portuguese and Spanish.

"Están contentos? Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii."

(Argentinian audience goes nuts lol)

"Iiiiiiiibrahiiiiiiiiiimmmmmm".

And after Love of my Life, in one of the nights, a very well pronounced: "Fantastico".

In São Paulo, 1981: "Agora, Brian vai tocar piano", before they did save me. :op

And, man, he talked some Japanese, because he used to speak a lot during the early 70's when they went to Japan. And he actually, it's a different Freddie if you listen to that concert in Tokyo, 4th April, I guess, because he actually wants the audience...TO GET QUIET, because he wants to explain the songs: "Listen, listen, listen..." Hahahaha. He sounds like a teacher, really, is funny. There's a point where he's interrupted and says: "Yes, of course you can, my dear", or something like that, so I don't know, maybe someone in the audience wanted to strip or take a picture, or, who knows! "Now, listen, listen, please". But in this concert, and in many others, he speaks a lot of phrases in Japanese (whether it's well pronounced or not, it's beyond me lol). I'm sure he didn't speak Japanese, but he wouldn't starve, I think, if he were left there alone. lol

But what was really priceless was listening to the concert in Lyon, I guess, 1982. After Play The Game, there were some guys in the front speaking in Italian. SirGH decoded to us what Freddie's answer was: first, he was all happy because he was speaking French: "is everything bien? Heeeeyyyy...", and then: "What? Are you Italian? Are you Spaghetti?". Hahahaha. And it's funny, he doesn't say it in a disrespectful way, he plays with the stereothype, it's amusing.

The guy was sheer fun. lol

Onanism is it's own punishment, it would appear.

He also "spoke" signlanguage. Cause he once raised his middle finger. And it looked alright, so I guess he 'speaks' sign language
