4-12-09 David Bowie – Ziggy Stardust

Posted by Sean on April 12, 2009

Well, Shanoah, since the theme seems to be Freddie Mercury or David Bowie in weird costumes (I know! Crazy, huh!), here’s David Bowie live with Ziggy Stardust.

That was a good concert, wasn’t it, Sean? Seems like artists from Robert Plant to Elton John to George Michael to Metallica were there singing Freddie Mercury songs as well. I could have easily gone with any number of them for this post.

But there’s one musician who I think is the best at singing songs by Freddie Mercury who I decided to play. That, naturally, would be Freddie Mercury. 🙂

This song is I Want To Break Free, featuring the whole of Queen dressed up in drag as something out of Coronation Street. Of course, he really should have shaved his mustache off before doing that…

Good song; funny video. When he comes out with the vacuum cleaner makes the video, really.

4-11-09 Queen with David Bowie – Heroes

Posted by Sean on April 12, 2009

Well, since the theme seems to be tribute-concerts-to-Freddie-Mercury-with-David-Bowie-fronting-Queen (a very small and little known genre of music), here’s one of my favorite Bowie songs, Heroes, from that very same concert… held, coincidentally, on Easter Monday, April 20, 1992.
