Here is a new addition to the QZ fan cover collection - a song which is not covered that often.

I also forgot to announce Killer Queen by Bernie Garzio.

Listen and enjoy

Pretty good. Not a great Queen song to begin with but and enjoyable remake.

I like the idea of fan covers but honestly the only one I ever go back to is Luciano Fat Bottomed Girls.

I like the bass. Vocals are good but IMO they need more reverb or a more 'foreground' mix. Somehow they're too 'dry', especially the harmonies, but they're well-sung (particularly the ones in the middle-eight, love them!), so it's only a matter of EQ IMHO.

If I may ask: what gear did you use? I like that 'monster-bass'. I missed the two seconds of piano that the original version has... normally I like it when people deviate from the album/single, but in this case a 'fill' was much needed.

Very good job all in all, keep them coming! (What about Keep Passing the Open Windows or Lily of the Valley?)


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Shame about the MP3 splishy splashy sounds. 128kbps is a bit wimpy these days, isn't it.

Anyway, I like the sound of the bass at the start - very like the original. Got me back into how the song sounded. Good reminder, ya know? Your voice works really well on this track, especially with the double-tracking. Nice and loose. Nicely done. Good backing vocals, too. Really works well.

Drums are a bit too dry and just need some gentle reverb to spread it into the background a spot. Just a smidge. Nice guitar add-ins at the beginning and end. Nicely blended in. Just a shame going into the 2nd verse they're a little weird sounding there.

Overall, a very good cover of this particular song. Only thing it probably lacks is an overall compression to really bring all these elements in the song together. Otherwise, cool.

Adam.
