Which do you think is the most passionate vocal performance by Freddie? Could be live or studio.

For me, its We are the champions at Hammersmith Odeon 26th December 1979, particularly after Freddie leaves the piano. I think this one is even better than the version at Newcastle earlier that month.

"In My Defence" has to be up there somewhere. The man is singing as if his life depends on it. It's a passionate as anything he ever sang in Queen.

My vote goes for A Winter's Tale.  Nobody can possibly describe what he must have felt while recording that.  Same goes for Warren Zevon while recording his last record..

i dont know about passionate but the most heartfelt must of been when he was singing mother love, the lyrics are just so in the moment and he knew what he was doing and he put his heart and soul into it

for example some of the lines

But my heart is heavy, and my hope is gone 

I long for peace before I die

just to sing those two lines knowing he did have not got long left just shows how determined he was to keep singing

Death On Two Legs.  The song showed Freddie's anger and loathing of the guy who took advantage of the band.

==================================

God, "The Wind" is so good. It is actually among my absolute favorite Zevon records (though I honestly can't say I dislike any of them).

Hmmm, it's difficult to name only one, since he was such a passionate singer. I agree with those who said "In my defence" and "Death on two legs". I'd also add "The show must go on", although he was not in his best vocal shape.
Gosh, I remember these songs and get goosebumps.

I think it has to be Somebody to Love.

I go for this one:
15 - Guide Me Home , How Can I Go On (Alternate Version)
This one is taken from the Freddie Mercury Box, the rarities CD 2 Barcelona sessions.

Really moving and passionate singing from Freddie.
Practising to impress Montserat Cabballe (just my feeling).

Also In my defense is a very moving and passionate song.

It does'nt fall into the 'heartfelt' or 'passionate' category, 'cos it's maybe frivilous , but 'killer queen' is absolutely the most delightful, joyous vocal i've heard in my natch.Unequalled talent i'm afraid. 'And there you have it'

Agreed, but I prefer 0:33-0:50

Horrible song, though.

Well said mate; it's nonsense to suggest this song is under par.

I think the most passionate is Bohemian Rhapsody from Budapest on July 27, 1986. Although, Freddie's voice isn't in great shape, he sings it so passionate. It still remains my favourite live version of Bo Rhap ever!

The studio versions of Who Wants To Live Forever, The Show Must Go On and A Winter's Tale.  All beautiful moments.

Somebody to Love at Milton Keynes and Love of My Life at Wembley mainly because Mary was there and Freddie was singing it for her and it showed

Show must go on wasnt his best vocal shape?

I have to disagree with you and say that show must go on might be his best vocals ever. It sounds tremendously beautiful
