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

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.
