You are the Champions

Post by Nicki »

I think this song should get its own topic.



Queen & Adam Lambert finally released a song! It only took them a pandemic to do that... It might not be a new song, only a tiny little change to the old WATC. But it’s a great gesture and all the proceeds are going to health organizations.

The video is nicely done, showing places and people all over the world affected by the virus. It’s also a nice surprise to see Roger’s daughter Rory in it, who‘s working as a doctor in London. Roger talked a bit about it in the BBC2 radio interview this morning. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000hq5f (Go to 1:39:00, then the interview with Roger and Adam starts).

My conclusion at the moment is that’s a short, but great bit of music. Especially considering, how it was recorded: Brian sitting in his shorts on the couch. Roger drumming according to what Brian had recorded in his basement, being filmed with a phone by his wife. And then Adam singing along to the mix of these records alone in his „office“ to a white wall.

I've said it elsewhere, but this was absolutely wonderful. I would have wanted something more than this...a surprise stream of one of their live concerts, for example, but this has a lot of heart. And it looked like it was super easy to put together, and why wouldn't it be, they've played the song to death. haha

I assume I can't post what I think about it in here.

It's OK if you don't like it.

The song just got a mention in a trailer for the 10 o clock news on ITV here in the UK.

Apparently it's not ok.
