The following is a list of the prerequisites for posting a cover version of a queen song in the stage of champions:

1. Please make sure you can pronounce all of the lyrics to the song WITHOUT a damn accent.

2. See above.


Thank You

Do you want me to put up a song? Because you'll most surely be blown away.

I'd love to hear your song. Which one are you covering?

My Melancholy Blues is a great song for just vocals and piano. I wish I could sing, then I could cover that song.

True. Great song but it's just not what I'm looking for vocally.

See, If I weren't worried about the time it'd take to do the vocal overlays, I'd consider Somebody to Love.

With just piano and vocals you could do some good versions of:

Nevermore
Dear Friends
You Take My Breath Away
All Dead All Dead
Dead on Time...just kidding

MadGuy, you'll really impress if you turn a non-ballad into a ballad. Don't just recreate something with your own voice and instrumental talents. The best cover song will always the one with minimal resemblance to the original.
