More than three decades ago, Freddie Mercury crooned “We Will Rock You” brilliantly, and till today we can’t STOP rocking this majestic song. Even the charismatic showman himself wouldn’t have envisaged the rocking capabilities this song or he himself could have had in the near future.
Well, talk about the song and not a soul can stop singing or tapping to this legendary anthem abruptly! One ought to sing it till the end. And talk about the man, not a spirit can stop raving about how he lacerated those vocals. Be it We Are The Champions, I Want To Break Free, Radio Gaga or Bohemian Rhapsody, Freddie Mercury’s songs were STRANGELY GORGEOUSLY ADDICTIVE. And his virtuosity was/is and always will be incomparable!
Well, it being the most inspiring genius’ birthday, we didn’t want to do the regular bit by compiling a list of his greatest hits (honestly, our conscious did not allow us to restrict his brilliance in music with just an ordinary list).
So, we decided to pull out 10 extra-amazing quotes by the man who took music to another level!
“I won’t be a rock star. I will be a legend.”
“I want to lead the Victorian life, surrounded by exquisite clutter.”
“Onstage, I am a devil. But I’m hardly a social reject.”
“I’m just a musical prostitute, my dear.”
“We’re a very expensive group; we break a lot of rules. It’s unheard of to combine opera with a rock theme, my dear.”
“I always knew I was a star. And now, the rest of the world seems to agree with me.”
“I like to be surrounded by splendid things.”
“Money may not buy happiness, but it can damn well give it!”
“I’m very emotional; I think I may go mad in several years’ time.”
“When I’m dead, I want to be remembered as a musician of some worth and substance.”
He came, he sang, our hearts fluttered, he marked his arena and conquered everything. A very happy birthday to you! Thank you for the beautiful music.
How can we close without witnessing some fireworks?
