I admire Queen more as time goes by. They never did what was ordinary and they usually did it very well.

"Fat Bottom Girls" is the official song of the University of Washington women's softball team.

A queer genius....or was that sheer?

Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the best songs ever written and performed.

Mercury rocked. I think, "Somebody To Love" was him at his best.

Brilliance.

Yeah.

Brilliant.

It really is hard to quantify.

Kevin's link shows 'range'.

Accuracy is not a question.

If you don't hit the note, you're not in the game.

Period.

That said, Freddie Mercury is one of the all-time greats.

I like Dolly Parton. Her catalog may not be the mostest, but she has SERIOUS pipes.
