I know Brian and Roger are singers in their own right but don't you think some tracks would have been better sung by Freddie. He after all did have a totally unique voice, and whatever song he sang sounded completely different than it would if anybody else had sung it. Do you know what I mean? Freddie wasn't just a good singer, his voice was quirkily different than anything else I've ever heard. I dunno,

I remember when Brian's BTTL album came out and I heard TMLWKY. I remember thinking after a while, "Freddie should've sung that." And low and behold, a few years later, the MIH album answered.

Sometimes I still think about a song here and there where I thought Freddie would've sounded great on it. But I don't mind anymore.

Btw, do you know that there is a piece of software being developed that can replicate a persons singing voice? Seriously - no hoax. All you need is for the singer to sing the "ah" sound for a few seconds. And apparently the software can map the rest. Sounds incredible and I can't wait to test it!

Peace,
Adam.

I can hardly imagine of Freddie's singing I'm In Love With My Car... That's Roger's job!

I really like their three voices, they are so different. Compare the three Show Must Go On, or the three We Will Rock You, they`re so different but they`re all very good.

I think Fred would be good in I`m In Love With My Car doing some Hitman-like yelling, but the general arrangement should change to adapt more to his voice than Roger`s


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

TSMGO and WWRY are simply too much for Brian's voice. His versions of those songs are torture for the ears.


Not those are losers who fall, but those who don't stand up.
