This time it's my humble cover of Freddie Mercury's "My Melancholy Blues" from Queen's album "Jazz" (1977).

Hope you like it!

Disagrí. Jun 29, 2005

Con apego al dicho "En gustos y colores se rompen géneros", el Mercury y su Queen no son ni jazz, ni blues: son pop clasemediero acaramelado que mataron al rock, al igual que el tal Paul MacCartney. Ponerle "My Melancholy Blues" de su álbum "Jazz": ¡Qué osadía!
Sólo pensar en "We are the champions" me pone mal.
Se vale disentir y es lo que hago.
Un saludo a todos.

No existe ningún problema en que no te guste esta música, tienes todo el derecho. De hecho, no eres el único (yo era una que odiaba cuando mis compañeros escuchaban a Fredy Mercury, pero por distintos motivos. Ahora bien, esto no te impide disfrutar de la magnífica voz de Flavio.

Muchas gracias una vez más, Flavio, por compartir tu pasión y tu talento con nosotros. Como siempre, tu interpretación es espectacular. ¡Mis felicitaciones!

Clarisa

Queen and Freddie Mercury Jun 29, 2005

It is sad that people associate Queen exclusively with "We are the champions". Queen did many more wonderful songs, and I encourage you to go listen some of the most obscure pieces.

Freddie loved to "explore" different styles and concepts: you'll find, among Queen's albums, cabaret songs, country songs, pop songs, rock songs, heavy metal songs, dance songs, and some "blues".

Of course it hasn't anything to do with Mahalia Jackson or Aretha Franklin! He had no intention to do that - and the album titled "Jazz" doesn't have anything to do with Jazz as a musical style. As you know, "Jazz" means several things in English.

***

It is also sad that you state that Queen killed rock. I guess you have never had a listen to their entire albums, Juan...

Thank you Oso, Clarisa, Pamela, Thierry and Giovanni for caring to listenicon_smile.gif

Love,
Flavio
