Belle and Sebastian came on the radio and I thought they were doing a Death On Two Legs cover. "Wow!", I thought. Then it changed and was some completely different song. I listened to the whole thing to make sure I wasn't hearing things. That little intro phrase pops up a few times and it was starting to piss me off. I'm not one to do that, but this seems so blatant that it's just not cool.

Anyone else heard this?

Peace,
Adam.

Where in the world do you live that Belle & Sebastian comes on the radio? Never heard 'em over here in the States.


Heh, sorry, that wasn't your question, was it. Well, without having heard it, maybe it's just an homage. A respectful nod to Queen.

Here's a video link - http://www.teentoday.co.uk/music/musicvideos/belleandsebastian.shtml

I have to admit it seemed more at the time, but it still has the power to bug me when I hear that bit.

Peace,
Adam.

Yup. It's there alright. Hits you the moment the song starts.

This kind of thing is bound to happen in the music industry.

Does anyone know if Brian has heard this? Wonder what he'd say.

Peace,

Doesn't work for me. The video won't start up.
