I LOVE that version of STL with George Michael! Especially the part where the audience fills in with the "loooove" part and it sounds just like he sang it on the record.

My dad obsesses with that version. It's REALLY scary.

I like the a-cappella cover of Seaside Rendezvous, since it's not just a copy of the original song

George Michael's version of Somebody To Love was great. It sounded almost as if Freddie was singing it.

George Michael's "Somebody To Love" followed closely, in my mind, by his duet of "These Are The Days" with Lisa Stansfield.

Bohemian Rhapsody by the Fugees...because they do it their way, not like Freddie and the boys.

I think Wyclef Jean's cover of Another One Bites The Dust is excellent!

Wow, Stone Cold Crazy by Metallica rocks. No sarcasm attached.

My only criticism is that when Freddie/Roger/(Brian?) say 'Stone Cold Crazy' at the end of the first verse in the original version adds a bit of depth to it...Hmm, I did have some intelligent comment a long time ago but I lost it.

Killer Queen with Travis


And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...
