Probably something like Crazy Little Thing Called Love or I'm Going Slightly Mad.


I always knew I was a star And now, the rest of the world seems to agree with me-Freddie Mercury

I suppose IGSM isn't that easy for an inexperienced singer. For example, the melody in the chorus may pose some difficulty.

'We Will Rock You' seems to be one of the simplest songs out there.

Slightly Mad isn't an easy song. Low key doesn't mean easy. It's quite difficult to tune it properly.

Probably Crazy Little Thing. Or perhaps Dear Friends. But then, Dear Friends would be very difficult to pull off well because sometimes the simplest things are the hardest to get to work.

I don't know if it makes it easier by definition, but there's only one Freddie-song I can sing reasonably well and that is Jealousy. Too bad it's not exactly one of my favorites, it just suits my voice...

Calling All Girls, Dont Try Suicide and We Will Rock You seem to be very easy

Some of the songs suggested have a lower/deeper vocals but that doesn't automatically mean they are easy to sing.

Slightly Mad is tricky. Fool Me has the 'mama said be cool.. yup but BAAP bap bap bap' bit also. We will rock you sounds pretty straightforward but I have heard one too many guest singers try it with bad results so I don't know.

I agree with something like Dear Friends... perhaps You're my best friend or one of the slower rockers like Fat Bottomed Girls.

'Best Friend' is actually quite tricky, especially if you try to add all the ornaments he put in there.

Yeah, I agree with 'Dear Friends.' Range's just one octave (I think) and there's no modulation, plus it's short.


John hated Hot Space. Frederick's favourite singer was not Paul Rodgers. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' 'Bohemian Rhapsody' hasn't got 180 vocal overdubs.

Best Friend also hits some pretty high notes. But let's remember, Freddie himself often substituted notes - sometimes for variety and sometimes because his voice was screwed up - in live performance.

Well, Love of my life. Not only Freddie sang it effortlessly, but it's the song the audience sang along the most. Must not have been too difficult to sing along.

Dear Friend is okay, but it's not easy to make a catchy singing out of it.

LOML has some tricky high notes that no audience would ever reach. Also, there are some significant melodic skips that aren't all that easy to do.
