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…

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

“Summertime” by George Gershwin in a song from the opera Porgy & Bess. Gershwin composed Porgy & Bess in 1934. The libretto was from DuBose Heyward’s novel Porgy. Over time it become a widely known opera and one of the most frequently performed operas. Many great pieces of music were in Porgy & Bess but “Summertime” was one of the most well-known pieces to come from the opera. Because its melody is so strong and its cords so complex, it became one of the most…
Summertime, from the folk opera Porgy and Bess, is a haunting, languid melody created by the highly esteemed American composer and pianist, George Gershwin. Gershwin was one of the twentieth-century’s most influential, beloved composers, and a multitalented musical genius. He composed numerous orchestral works for piano and jazz orchestra, and created popular musical compositions for several stage works and films. Gershwin’s most famous piece, however, is undoubtedly Rhapsody in Blue. I have…
For example when we cut Bohemian Rhapsody we could have used the time we spent practicing Great Locomotive Chase for like the thousandth time practicing a song that we actually needed to work on and not play because it was quick and easy. I think that the band as a whole should have practiced more. At my old school to be in band you had to every week take a slip home and you had to practice for at least 8 hours and that was the way you got your participation points for that week and your parents…
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…
