best to them, and that another persons preference has no relevance to another. That statement denies that there could objectively be a best singer of all time. Which can be a very dangerous slope to go down, for if one claims that no one could ever be the best, they are denying the fact that Freddie Mercury is indeed that greatest singer of all time. With his 4-octave vocal range to his vocal transparency, and with his vocal dynamics, proves that he is in fact the greatest of all time.
“A killer queen” and “dynamite with a laser beam”, perhaps Freddie was referring to his own powerful vocal presence with these lyrics. Rightly so, for no other singers dynamic voice has stirred emotions like Freddie Mercury’s. It has been said that “Bohemian Rhapsody” still showcases unrivaled vocal talent since its release 41 years ago. Indeed its true, for no pop song since then has been written in 6 distinct parts, each showcasing a different aspect of Freddie Mercury’s extraordinary vocal talent. Others claim that music genius Brian Wilson’s “Good…
I was asked to choose a commercially available piece of music and analyse the recording techniques used. The piece I have chosen is ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ by Queen from their 1975 album ‘A Night at the Opera’ (Queen, 1975).
Written by the band’s lead vocalist, Freddy Mercury, the song was recorded in 4 different studios between August and September of 1975.
- Rockfield Studio 1
- SARM (East)
- Scorpio Sound
Bohemian Rhapsody was produced…
The original song I had wanted to write about was Sweet Child O Mine by Guns N Roses. After further analyses of this piece of music, I realized it would not have enough contrast for me to write multiple pages. After much thought and consideration, the new piece I chose to write about is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Bohemian Rhapsody has plenty of dramatic contrasts, frequent shifts in tempo, and changes in rhythmic character from section to section. The piece was written by…
History of Rock
The song I chose to analyze was Bohemian Rhapsody. This song was written by a famous
British band called Queen. The band was officially formed in 1970 with Freddie Mercury, Roger
Taylor, Brian May, and Mike Gross making up the members of the band. A year later, the band
signed with Trident Audio Productions. In 1973, the band released their first single and began
their first major tour. In 1975, Queen released their…
but not everyone is meant for one kind of music. In here i'm going to explain to you why there both good choices of music, but for different kinds of people by comparing and contrasting.
The most obvious difference is that hard rock is a little more, dark and the classics are happy. Classic rock covers several different topics and emotions, sometimes the dark but not a lot. An example of a classic rock would be Queen. Queen has songs like “Don't Stop Me Now,” We Are The Champions, “and…
music has consistently been the most important part of my life.
The earliest memories I have are centered around the soundtrack behind them. I was always dancing around in my room, singing off key. Two of my personal favorites to listen to as a young girl were Elvis and the Beatles. Elvis was the first notion of a “heart-throb” I had, and at age five was quite the dedicated fangirl. One Halloween, armed with my cassette player, I went Trick-or-Treating as “Little Elvis”. My parents started me…

Pop songs today are laid out in similar ways: verse, chorus, verse 2, chorus, verse 3, chorus. Because of their repetition, choruses usually make up what we see as the “core” of a song. When one thinks of “Rude” by Magic, do they think of the chorus or the verses? What about “Wake Up” by Arcade Fire? We generally think of songs like these as having a “normal” song structure. In fact, very few pop songs go against this grain, with most of the few examples of this not actually being pop songs.…
at sports games. Queen was famous in the seventies, eighties, and nineties. Queen is known for always putting on a show when they performed in concert for their fans. “The epitome of pomp-rock in the seventies and Eighties, Queen rocked radio and sports stadiums alike with booming, highly produced anthems like ‘We Are the Champions’ and ‘We will Rock You’” (“Queen Bio” 1).
When Queen performs all of the audience’s attention is on the members of Queen. Queen is made up of Freddie Mercury, Brian…
and hear the band celebrate with them. One of my favorite memories is from High School Band Day in 2014. I got rejected to homecoming on the bus there, but once I got in the stadium and saw the marching band rehearsing, my sorrows vanished for good. I couldn’t believe that I got to play during half time at a badger game! Since we didn’t make it back for band day the past two years, I thought my adventures at Camp Randall were over, however fate was on my side. One cold rainy night, far from…
