lmfao!

But seriously, Crazy Frog is really stupid. It started as a ringtone craze and now it's ruining music! I liked 'Axel F' (the theme from the movie Beverly Hills Cop), but now I really can't listen to it because of that Crazy Frog techno cover of it.

We saw what happened when William Hung covered WATC. And we also remember...Robbie Williams *shudder*
...gives me a chill just thinking about it lol

So, in short, this will really suck.

It´s the Queen revolution again!

With all these kids today being introduced to Queen music, i think it´s a second comeback for them.

The real shock is going to be when these younger fans find out that Freddie is dead :))

If you think about it, it´s weird. I mean, these guys never leave the charts since his dead in 1991, so it´s possible that the youngsters don´t know who the hell is Freddie, and think he´s still alive!!

They thought CLTCL was an Elvis song!!!
Take care

I know I should not get upset anymore after Pepsi commercial, Sun single release and Viagra commercial but the fact that Freddie's song is sold away to such a non-music, pure commercial company makes me really sad. From now on sarcastic laughter is the only appropriate response to the WWRY musical intro and I hope people realise the extend of the hypocrisy.

I am not worried about the song. For me, WATC has always been the strongest and most personal song by Freddie. It's so strong because it's not just a "winner song", it does include losing and the will power and perseverance it takes to cope with the ups and downs in life. That's why everybody can relate to it, you don't need to be a super star or a world champion to understand that winning always requires effort and fight and losing is always an option. Crazy Frog is the sheer contrary of this idea, it's about a quick buck with virtually no effort and no creativity. Therefore, it will always be Freddie's song which is played in the stadiums and not some commercial crap. I am sure they will still play it when nobody really remembers who the hell Brian May was.


I do not want any google ads here.

I seem to remember Brian specifying on his website a couple of years ago that if you want to release your own cover of someone else's song, you don't need the original artist's permission, as long as you don't change the words, nor can the original artist stop the release, as long as the release complies with the current copyright regulation.

FWIW
