C'mon vocalists- guitarists have their thread, now us:)
Which Queen song you consider the most difficult to sing...?
For me it's sth like "Innuendo", "Dead on Time (too fast, can't keep the pace with lyrics...), and "We Are The Champions"- I'm talking about singing in the same key!

Most of the stuff off of Innuendo. The rest I can handle.

Breakthru- everything goes quite well (not everyday, though:)) untill the last chorus; by the end of the song I'm so tired that I can't reach the high pitched "smiiile", almost by the end of the song...
And "Mother Love" is unreachable ("out in the city.../I don't want pity..." bits)- actually, the whole things sounds so bloody flat when I try doing it...

The way Freddie sang Love Of My Life on the A Night At The Opera album is unique and inimitable for me! A great great voice and a great great unique rendition of Love Of My Life!

LMAO! Amen to that! I can do just fine on that song up until the "on with the show"... Then it all goes to hell. But, I can do Love Of My Life perfectly! Now... If I could only learn how to play the piano...

Well, most of the ones Brian sings are pretty tough for me. I have a really high voice and his are in an uncomfortable spot for me.

But as far as "most mind-boggling", which is what I think this was inteneded to be, definitely, without a doubt "Teo Toriatte". So hard to do effectively.

Teo Toriatte is one of my faves! I love singing that one... Japanese is a fun language. ;p

Queen songs, except for some of the ballads, are difficult to sing. We Will Rock You is very hard. You have to have a super voice.
I've managed to learn some of the ones I consider difficult one at a time. The ones I can sing now are: (I do it good enough for me)

Love of My Life
Bohemian Rapsody
Save Me
You Take My Breath Away
In the Lap of the Gods
Killer Queen
Somebody to Love (don't sing it good enough for me yet)
Melancoly Blues
Who Wants To Live For Ever
The Show Must Go On

Freddie sang in a key that is comfortable for women, but harder for man to imitate.


Freddie es como Carlos Gardel: cada dia canta mejor.

Unless you have a 'wussy-man' voice like I do. If you heard me talk, You'd know. ;p
