I still haven't found a version where Freddie sings both the Bb4 on "What you doin' tonight" and sings the "set my alarm" without doing the "ram bam bam". However, there are still plenty of great versions out there. What do you think is the best? 

PS: I LOVE THIS SONG


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

Well, vocally it's the best!

Now, we gotta find version with awesome vocals + no piano experimentations!

There's a lot of them, but this one probably is the most daring.

Until a few weeks ago, I never even realised that this song had been played live! :P

No idea why.

Very entertaining and the wigs are too funny, especially the one of "Brian May". A real nice performance.

"Fat Deacon" looks like the messenger from Blackadder 1: (The Queen of Spain's Beard)

(Hopefully the image has uploaded so you know who I'm talking about.)

I think the following Rock 4 version is quite amazing:

Damn, both of those are amazing.  The one youtube comment from the singer makes me sad..

"Sadly no, we have never been abroad, it's not easy cause we all have full-time? jobs..:("

But they could quit their jobs and make a living off touring this show.  20 theatre shows a year would pay the bills.  They are one of the best Queen tributes around, and certainly the only tribute that does the 70s Queen image well.  Is it even culturally acceptable to be a full time musician in South Korea?  They have a very strict culture, so I'm genuinely curious..

Are these guys still together?  The website at the end of the video doesn't work..

I hope you weren't serious when saying they are one of the best Queen tributes around. If you were joking, than I am very gullible.

No, I wasn't joking.  Sure, the singer is a bit pitchy, but the overall performance, stage show, and dedication to the music is one of the best I've ever seen.

Well if the singer could get rid of his accent it would be even better. I believe I've said this before but the Argentinean band "Dios Salve a la Reina" would be so much better if the singer didn't sing with such a strong accent.

Nah, the accent is the very charm.  Nothing sounds worse than someone trying to sound like someone else and failing.  With the accent in the mix, they bypass that entire step and the listener can focus on the justice they're doing to the whole picture, not just one part of it.
