I Want to Break Free gets my vote, and not really for the cross-dressing bits (although Roger looks a little too convincing). It's the part where Freddie opens the door and does that interpretive dance stuff with the group of people in unitards and/or body paint that's most bizzare. Still an interesting clip, though!

Honorable Mentions:
It's A Hard Life: Freddie's afro/mullet/mohawk thing is just too much

Under Pressure: Whoa

I'll say either I'm Going Slightly Mad, Innuendo, or The Invisible Man.

I Want To Break Free, for the interpretive dance stuff, and Radio Ga Ga for the organized clapping and John's afro!

I agree with Billie on this one. But I think they're all cool vids. Never thought of any as bizzare.

Peace,
Adam.

Bohemian Rhapsody. It's the stare John gives that makes me scream. Like this *scream* but not typed.

It's A Hard Life, most definitely...the lack of continuity throughout the video is horrible, not to mention the awful looks on Brian, John and Roger's faces the whole time. Freddie looks like he's having fun though, except when Barbara Valentin steps on his foot (thank God it wasn't the injured leg!). (What was with that??) I loved the sets and costumes though.
Honourable mention: Body Language and Freddie's Made In Heaven, Brian's Resurrection and Roger's Nazis. Top most bizarre solo video: No Turning Back (with John). ACK!!! I collapse in laughter every time I see it!

I'm with you Billie,Adam, I vote for fat "sexy" women in dresses phosphorescent from the choir,and for the scene of cake squashed by a lady in Body Language video



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...

It's A Hard Life, definately. One of my favorite songs, but a very surreal video.

Some elements of the Play The Game video are bizarre. The reverse footage, the Freddie/Brian guitar wrestle, Freddie covered in grease, and the odd backdrops of cheesy looking flames. Great song though, and I like Freddie's FLASH shirt.

Most bizzarre video for me.... it took me a while to get into Back Chat (I still don't understand it though) I love the It's A Hard Life vid because it sort of shows how Freddie saw the "friends" he acquired from his fame and how his life is grand but still really dull and boring. I can't type it, I'd have to actually say it. Anyone else get my drift?

Fat Bottomed Girls - One camera, wow!
Bicycle Race - Minge in view, minge in view
Crazy Little Thing - Queen in gay video shock, camp as christmas but strangely compelling.

Backchat - Freddie finally completes plumber transition with holiding a fucking big spanner, no-one knows why.
Calling All Girls - THX-11SH1T
Radio Ga-ga - Again a classic
I Want To Break Free - I don't remember anyone in Coronation Street having a tashe, ah Ivy Tisley did.
Its A Hard Life - Freddie on a whim, brilliant song, terrible video, not for the first time. John looks into camera, one golden rule broken, Roger looks like he's constipated, Brian acting his socks off, Freddie in a wig, then not, then in a wig again, why, why?

Brian looks a little strange when he sings his lines in WWTLF. He wasn't lip syncing very well...
