Well I think it's always interesting to hear different versions of songs, not that those versions are the best, far from that, or very different in style, because they're not, but it's just good to hear people we think make "crappy" music suddenly make covers of songs by our favorite band.
For exemple, my ex-girlfriend absolutely loved Jason Battah and she let me down for this guy. Not that she knew him personally, but he was more important than me. That's so silly in my opinion, so I hated him. When he performed "We Are The Champions", I kind of "forgave" the guy even if he had never heard about my ex-girlfriend or even me.
What Queen songs give to people is that : A feeling of love, of friendship, of fun and even of forgiveness. You can't go wrong by loving Queen. At the end of the day, Freddie Mercury and the rest of them will never make you sad by purpose. I'm someone who think Queen can save lives. Not just Queen, but music in general. Especially Queen. They can save lives because we can really feel their messages, and those messages, even in the simpliest songs, are great. In musical terms, "Calling All Girls" isn't great, but the message is there. It's a message of love. "Innuendo" talks about intolerence in a way. "The Show Must Go On" says it all : you HAVE to go on after someone's passing. 90 % of their songs and maybe more than that, will make you live a better life. It works for me.
"Surrender Your Ego"...isn't that the message we should all send to people who think they are better than us ?
Queen is kinda like my religion. That band is my John Paul II ! Lol
Anyway, you see, I talk a lot, sometimes for nothing, but I don't care because that's me. :P
