Freddie - - Thinking of you and missing you on your 13th Anniversary in Heaven. Your music still fills the world with joy and your legacy will live on forever. Sing to the Angels, Dear! We Still Love You, Love You, Love You . . .

Yes You're right, we're all missing Freddie and the great music he made as a solo artist and with Queen. It's a very sad day but we have to remember him with joy. He's no longer with us, but his music and free spirit remain. God bless you Fred. RIP.
In my defence, what is there to say?
All the mistakes we've made must be faced today
It's not easy now, knowing where to start
While the world we love tears itself apart.



Please will you direct me in the right way?

Freddie Mercury sleeps among the stars in Heaven.

Sleep Well Our Fairy King!

Your Fans Still Love You and Always Will!


MADE IN HEAVEN

I'm taking my ride with destiny
Willing to pay my part
Living with painful memories
Loving with all my heart

Made in heaven, made in heaven
It was all meant to be, yeah
Made in heaven, made in heaven
That's what they say
Can't you see
That's what everybody says to me
Can't you see
Oh I know, I know, I know that it's true
Yes it's really meant to be
Deep in my heart

I'm having to learn to pay the price
They're turning me upside down
Waiting for possibilities
Don't see too many around

Made in heaven, made in heaven
It's for all to see
Made in heaven, made in heaven
That's what everybody says everybody says to me
It was really meant to be
Oh can't you see
Yeah, everybody, everybody says
Yes it was meant to be
Yeah, yeah

When stormy weather comes around
It was made in heaven
When sunny skies break through behind the clouds
I wish it could last forever, yeah
Wish it could last forever, forever

I'm playing my roll in history
Looking to find my goal
Taking all this misery
But giving it all my soul

Made in heaven, made in heaven
It was meant to be
Made in heaven, made in heaven
That's what everybody says everybody says
Wait and see, it was really meant to be
So plain to see
Yeah, everybody, everybody, everybody tells me so
Yes it was plain to see, yes it was meant to be
Written in the stars...
Written in the stars...


By The Late Great Freddie Mercury

Missed by Millions....Who left us this day 24/11/91...

RIP :^(



Long Live Queen!!!

Isn't it lovele when people forget about Freddie's death!

http://www.historychannel.com/today/

I guess there events in the Entertaiment section were more important than Freddie's death:

It really doesn't seem like it's been thirteen years, but I still miss him every single day. He was truly one of a kind and one of the most prolific performers of our lifetime.
I wish things had been different, that he was healthy and alive and still creating music. Fate changed all that and took him away to a better place. What he left behind will never be forgotten!

because Peter Cetera, life is too short

and because it will bring everyone else down

enjoy life it's what it's for

freddie wouldn't have wanted people being morose - even for one day - remember the Freddie Tribute concert was his "send off"

let it go, my friend....or you will become very old, very lonely and very sad - very quickly

NO-ONE BUT YOU (ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG) by Brian May

A hand above the water
An angel reaching for the sky
Is it raining in heaven?
Do you want us to cry?

And everywhere the broken heatred
On every lonley avenue
No-one could reach them
No-one but you

One by one
Only the good die young
They're only flying too close to the sun
And life goes on
Without you

Another tricky situation
I get to drowning in the blues
And I find myself thinking
Well, what would you do?

Yes, it was such an operation
Forever paying every due
Hell, you made a sensation (sensation)
You found a way through (found a way through)

One by one
Only the good die yound
They're only flying to close to the sun
We'll remember
Forever

And now the party must be over
I guess we'll never understand
The sense of your leaving
Was it the way it was planned?

And so we graced another table
And raise our glasses one more time
There's a face at the window
And I ain't never, never saying goodbye

One by One
Only the good die yound
They're only flying too close to the sun
Crying for nothing
Crying for no-one
No-one but you


we miss you freddie.

I am proud that the clasic rock radio station in my city remembered Freddie today. I didn't remember that it was the 24th today until I was driving to work this morning and they had a taped announcement saying that he was one of the greatest voices of rock and left the world too early. They followed this by playing Killer Queen and then 2 hours later they repeated the same announcement and played Somebody to Love.

I've got to say that living in Canada you don't hear nearly enough Queen on the radio, so it was quite a pleasant surprise.

Last night - or this morning, depending on how you think of it - was the cast party for the highly successful high school musical to which I have been dedicating my life. At 12:06 AM, a person who was not me noted that it had been November 24th for six minutes - and he actually knew why this was significant.

In a long story short, I now have a recording of something like 60 high school students all singing We Are The Champions. And it's fucking beautiful.

RIP Freddie.


God wants you to send me some money.

I'd like to show my humble poem which I made one day...

Some sleepless night, I whisper in the dark
Why did You go so soon?
Lookin up to the skies, I wonder where you are
Don't You know how I miss You?
I don't mean to bother Your peaceful rest
I only just want to say how I love You
Wherever I may be, Whenever it may be
I always think of You, Freddie!

P.S. I found it difficult to find same rhyme.

RIP Dear Freddie!






Je vais bien.

Estoy bien.

no it doesn't seem like 13 years ago.....

probably my favourite Queen song written by freddie....

Sleeping very soundly on a saturday morning I was dreaming I was Al Capone
There's a rumour going round, gotta clear outta town
Yes smelling like a dry fish bone
Here come the law, gonna break down the door, gonna carry me away once more
Never, I never, I never want it any more
Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
Crazy
Stone cold crazy, you know, wooh, ow

Rainy afternoon I gotta blow a typhoon and I'm playing on my slide trombone
Anymore, anymore, cannot take it anymore

Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
Crazy
Stone cold crazy, you know, ow, hit 'em on

Walking down the street, shooting people that I meet
With my rubber tommy water gun
Here come the deputy, he's gonna come and getta me
I gotta get me get up and run
They got the sirens loose
I ran right outta juice
They're gonna put me in a cell, if I can't go to heaven
Will they let me go to hell
Crazy
Stone cold crazy, you know

Whisperer -- if you think the fact that History Channel forgot what today is is shocking, have you looked at VH1's Rock Clock? What -- they couldn't see fit to even squeeze our beloved Freddie in between Cyndi freakin' Lauper and Eric Carr?

My mom HAD to go and use up the yahrzeit candles a few months ago when we had that power outage. So I lit a shabbat candle and stuck it in some aluminum foil, and listened to Bohemian Rhapsody while I unloaded the dishwasher.
