Hi everybody....I just want to share this song with you...
It´s from a tribute album. I have to be honest, I always think that all the tributes bands or songs or albums around Queen are pretty bad, maybe for the unique Queen sound, but for the first time I have listened to a very good, I mean very good cover of a Queen song...in this case "My Fairy King", and well...this song that I am posting here really got me amazed.
What do you guys think?

Here is the link:

I prefer Valensia's version of MFK to the Queen version. The rest of his tribute is also interesting, but the version of MFK is amazing.

Hey!, Thanks for the comments guys, I am glad you like the song...and yes, probably the Valensia´s version is better than the original.

Anybody intrested in the whole album? I got it and is worth it.
Ok, see us.

No it stinks! The music is prob better cos queen hadnt good equipment in 1973!

That guy doesnt speek english as his first language - therefore it doesnt sound natural, infact it sounds painful

don't talk so much bullshit..about how terrible it sounds..it sounds rather powerfull..
he doesn't rate himself any close to queen of course..but his busic is pure tribute of high quality..
of course with such an equipment queen would probably had done thousand times better..
all in all don't be such an asshle to judge and critisize.

queen is the best..

You are an idiot.

You probably love the Backstreet Boys.

This is a great version indeed!

There´s only one thing: I prefer the Freddie falsetto at the beggining of the song with the rest of the angelic choire behind him.

Freddie did sound like an angel in this song!!

Other than that, this band his amazing.

Take care

Sounds good but never like the QUEEN original song. The guitars doesn´t have the great May feeling and the voice in the cover song is very agressive, the original voice from Freddie is agressive and sweet at the same time, and this other guy doesn´t have that power. listen to "mother Mercury, look what they´ve done to me... " he doesn´t have the feeling.

I liked this version, very good, but NEVER like Queen.

A good version anyway, i agree with Marcelo that most covers aren´t good and this is a very good one.

thanks for sharing.

Peace.
