Hello everybody, first, sorry for my terrible english...


well, today I was listening to the freddie mercury and michael jackson track "state of shock", and I was curios to know how the finall version is, so I listened to the jackson five version, I think it is with mick jagger, and It really left on a state of shock (again that awful joke) when I almost heard freddie singing, even his trademark (c´mon babe!) is there, it seems to me, that the part that belonged to freddie, was sung almost hearing the freddie vocals..! I think he even imitated him... Well, at least thats what i think... what do YOU think about it?

wouldn´t dare to suggest an imitation but .... in this particular song Jagger sounds so flat compared to Freddie

They both had huge respect for one another musically so no shame in trying to sing it the way Freddie did... Mick must have liked Freddie's version to sing it so similar imo
