I do not think this is a proper subject of scientific inquiry.


#3

I was about to say “finally these ivory tower eggheads are using science for something worthwhile.” :wink:


#4

It’s not just because I loathe Queen. It’s because it’s a goddam matter of opinion.


#5

It was his amazingly awesomenessfully teeth that gave him his signature yodel like resonance.

It is a Scientific fact!


#6

Don’t hold back, now; let it all out. Tell us how you really feel about it…

*lolz


#7

PIPES. It’s all about pipes.


#8

Anyway the wind blows… something something something…

FTA:

This study presents an acoustical analysis of his voice production and singing style

His awesomeness is still a matter of faith. :smile:


#10

I like these improvisations he would do with the crowd.


#11

It was cock.


#12

I know people (plural) who have worshipped Freddie Mercury. Literally. And perhaps wilder still, I’m not sure they were wrong to. :laughing: :sweat:


#13

Freddie Mercury sang Bohemian Rhapsody? Huh, I always thought it was these guys.


#14

We are no longer friends.


#15

As wonderful of a singer as Mercury was, it was Roger Taylor that would sing all the crazy high notes.

Last month I was in an SUV full of international travelers on a tour and the driver played this song… when it got to the head banging part I started in and… nuthin’. We’re clearly not exporting our best stuff.

I trust you hid the bodies well.

I know right, she ain’t no human being.


#19

Is it because of their amazing songwriting, their glamourous appearance, Freddie´s awe-inspiring moustache? Maybe it´s the sheer power to ROCK that´s bothering you?

30 years ago I was stuck on the M25 near London and when I looked in the glovebox for the Specials album I thought I’d stashed there all I could find was a Best of Queen cassette I couldn’t remember having bought. Not the last time, either.
