Do any of you have a particular syllable (or word or even phrase if you want) which you can just listen to over and over again?
If you don't know what I mean, then two of my favourites would be the "beau" from "beautiful" in A Winter's Tale (at 2:53) as it's just so clean and in tune.
Also the high "we" in the second chorus of WATC at Live Aid, as Freddie doesn't normally go for it, but here he hits it with so much power.

I love when Freddie says the band members' name in Invisible, there's a particular intonation for each: "John DEAcon", "Brian May Brian May!" "Rrrrrroger Taylor!"

For some strange reason:

From Made in Heaven: "That's what they say." (Half-spoken, half-sung. Love it. Just something about it...) I actually do rewind that and listen to it several times.

Also from Made in Heaven: The melisma "yeah" before the bridge, and the "be -yeah" before the final "written in the stars."

There are more. I'll think on it.

ETA: From The Golden Boy: "He didn't hesitate..."

and most of IGSM.

the way he says "boy" in GOFLB...*swoon*!! lol

in Spread Your Wings, the last verse, the "who" of "dont you know who you are" sooo cute!!

Bicycle Race, when he says by himself: "I want to ride my biCYCLE!" kind of an echo-y shout

Who Needs You: "oh so so so-phisticat-ed!"

BoRhap: "fanDANgo!"

In The Lap of the Gods Rev.: "pretending" OMG! i listen to that word OVER and OVER!!


Love is still the answer, take my hand...

Live Aid when Freddie sang Radio Ga Ga and when he sang Radio and he wavered that 'o', oh god, i LOVE IT!!!

I dont know if this would be the same category as the subject, but I like the 'scat' part of Khashoggi's Ship

this has already been said, but the 'Rrrrroger Taylor!' in The Invisble Man

When Freddie does his 'AYYY-OHHHS!' at concerts, those are the best

I probably have more, I just dont remember them all, silly me :P

It seems that some people here don't know what "syllable" means.

I love in the proffet's song, how Freddie does that aw, children of the land. That part is just so clear and powerful. Can't explain it. May think I'm strange.

I love the phrase: but baby, I'll never, ever leave you.

It just does it for me.

i've loads but one of my favourite is - i cant live with you where the rest of the band sings near the end, then freddies voice comes in with the word 'yeah' and proceeds on...

or in the song - just you and i, the very last line where he sing the 'I' beautifully

and finally in sail away sweet sister, where brian is singing, then freddie comes in...the whole lot of it


I always replay bit of freddies voice - i dont do it with any other singer, shows that he really captured a lot of peoples minds with the power and beauty of his voice

Yep una999 I love that "yeah" in I Can't Live With You. It may even be phasing with the instruments I think. And the Sail Away Sweet Sister Freddie bit is possibly my very favourite lyric, though I had no idea what he was singing till I looked it up!

But in You and I my favourite bit is the "da doo da doo da doo da doo doo" sung by the backing choir at 1:16. For some reason I associate it with a fond memory I have and it takes me there heh.

If you'll read the first post:

"...or even phrase (if you want)..."

Looks like many of us wanted.
:P

****

But just for you:

From Made in Heaven: "say," in "That's what they say." (Half-spoken, half-sung. Love it. Just something about it...) I actually do rewind that and listen to it several times.

Also from Made in Heaven: The "Yeah" melisma before the bridge, and the LAST NOTE of the "be -yeah" before the final "written in the stars."

There are more. I'll think on it.

ETA: From The Golden Boy: The first syllable of the third word quoted here: "He didn't hesitate..."

and most of IGSM. - Hmmm. I'll change to every single slyllable. Separately.

Now, I realize I haven't finalized it to just one syllable. Heeeee.

:)
