Just want to see what you all regard as Mr. Mercury's best vocal performance in the studio of course. Personally I cant decide and was just wondering what some of you other queenzoners thought.

Well,hard question...I really like the way Freddie sings Nevermore


It's a long hard struggle

But you can always depend on me

And if you're ever in trouble

You know where I will be

That's not true, Dennis, and you know it. Vocally, Hammersmith '79 was superior, but even that wasn't the best.

absolutely!!!! this song is beautiful
and freddie really shows everyone how a song should sound...if it has one fault - it's that it's about 1½ minutes too short...but this song has emotion and despair in equal measure....

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.

Mustapha

That song is nearly impossible for anyone else but Freddie to sing (besides maybe traditional middle-eastern vocalists). He performs numerous trills, forced vibratos for flavor, and slides around the minor scale as if he was born doing it.

Studio: Bohemian Rhapsody - WITHOUT A DOUBT. No contest. He does well on songs like Somebody to Love, but NO ONE can do Bohemian Rhapsody like Freddie Mercury. Look at George Michael he did a pretty good version of Somebody to Love didn't he? You might personally not like his voice, but he hit all the notes and falsettos on key.

But Bohemian Rhapsody - There aren't many singers if any who could sing it perfectly on key like Freddie. Especially the "now I've gone and thrown it ALLLLLLLL away".

Mustapha? Talk it up, the vocals on that song are nothing special. Same as Let Me Entertain You and Dead On Time.

Bohemian Rhapsody - That is the vocal performance that sets Freddie Mercury apart from the rest of the crowd.

Live........ hmmm tough one. Probably Hammersmith 1979 or 1975, those take some beating. Actually it's gotta be Wembley 86, just joking.
