A Dozen Red Roses - all that human beatbox AND a melody? That's a tough ask...

they're all good examples but I'd add "Under Pressure" to the list too-incredibly difficult IMO

All God's People perhaps


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.

BoRhap, Who wants to live forever and Somebody to love aint that hard..

These songs are some of the hardest:

1. Innuendo (High-note range hroughout the song)

2. The Show Must Go On (Pure power. One has to be incredibly powerfull to sing this song, and have a large range. I've only heard one after Freddie (including Paul) who manage to sing this --> Chris Thompson.

3. You take my breath away (Freddie's timber at the time was very high, so it sounds easy.. Try yourself to sing it in the right key... It's kinda tricky to get it nice..

Radio Gaga... yepp... I've sung this some times and it just builds, and builds... It's really hard I've to say..

Scandal.... wooww...how did he do that!!!

Gimme the prize - very difficult..

Don't Try So Hard would be hard, I think, for most people to maintain all those notes and yet give it that delicate sound that Freddie did. A lot of people would probably miss the point and try and shout most of it out.

Mustapha!

My Fairy King - some tricky falsetto's going on.
Fairy Feller's Master Stroke - falsetto's and fast!
Lap of the Gods, revisited... - changing from head voice to falsetto, tricky to do get right, Freddie couldn't do it live either
Under Pressure - some crazy high notes
Innuendo - powerful high notes
All God's People - some crazy, powerful high notes in there as well
Don't Try So Hard - high notes, very delicately sang

Stone Cold Crazy isn't that hard, yes it's fast, but when you learn the words, it's not very difficult, same for Dead On Time.

Somebody To Love isn't that very hard either, but, as with any song, the trick is to sing it with the right emotion.

-Innuendo (hard high notes)
-Kind of magic (if you want to imitate the exact Freddie studio version, quite hard)
-Made in heaven (try the whole, very hard)
-Who wants to live forever (try to give it the perfect softness of Brian, and to go as high as Freddie)
-My Fairy King (Freddie=king of falsetto)
-Another one bites the dust (yes, sounds easy, but try and reach Freddie rank "How do you think you're gonna get along wihtout...etc" without sounding like shrieking saw).
lots of others...
