Ah, I've just worked out what the Stage Of Champions (a joke, surely?) is. My bookmark comes straight to the message board.

Yes, that was a truly awful rendition. Sounds like a bunch of Scottish football fans, which is always unpleasant.
Still better than 5ive though.

My ears still hurt after hearing this cover.
Everything is plain wrong, sorry... but this was like torture.

The original MJK cover version was worse, in some aspects.

I'd prefer the post-2000 Queen re-recordings of this song to the MJK covers any day (yes, even including Brit/Pink/Beyonce's cover)

Having just checked it out I have to agree. On a scale of 1 to 10 this shite gets a -150 and thats being generous.

Actually, of all the "Stage Of Champions" covers, the only one I've liked is Adam's one. Nice one mate.

Thanks, Dave! Appreciated. Well, I recently started putting together a slight remix of the MLHBS cover I did 2 years ago. And because of your comments I've decided to remake it even better than planned.

However, it's a little painstaking at the mo cause I used to mix things in a bad way. I'd remove the original instruments and replace them with "fx-ed" versions (reverb, EQ added etc.).

So, I was shocked to go back and see that I don't actually have a session in CEPro with the normal parts saved together. Only fx-ed parts in the mix. But I did save ALL the original takes and have begun matching things up. Of course, this means I have to match the originals, to the sample, with the fx-ed ones. Shockin'...

Sorry, that's a lot of babbling there! Anyway, expect it sometime soon.

Peace,
Adam.
