Mika's song for Freddie

Quite a nice track from Mika, I think. Ok, the chorus is a bit simplistic, but the rest of the song has a certain something I feel.

It is a song for Freddie, but also for all those others that have lost their lives to AIDS.

Even the video reminds me of the vid for Days of our Lives: shot in black and white, simply singing the song to camera...and the end shot seems like a bit of a nod to Freddie's last take on camera.

Really wish Mika had made it and been ok. So sad. Hand on heart, I have been sobbing like a baby since I heard this. My 'rents have quite the collection. I adored him. I used to know someone who knew someone that died back in the black and white era. I hope he does something for charity.

I like that a lot. Very nicely done.

~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

Who would've guessed? At it again, because it takes your fancy, or you are bored, or you have a bone to pick? Do you have anything else to offer here than your constant digs my way, and looking down your nose at others because they like/enjoy music that you don't like?
Bad enough your many digs about/towards me in other areas of the board, and after all you put out there that you dont even read my my posts, but to start crap and throw your digs it in a thread about this? I wish you could see the irony of what you are doing, you say I'm following people, yet you are following me, mimicking/trolling me and the bullshit that you have, you do it without even reading my posts. Capt of your own mind games, I dare say.

It has a certain warmth and melody to it, I feel. I don't particularly like his voice all the way through this track, but there is some genuine feeling to the song that gets me somehow.

The more i hear it, the more I like it. So by now, I really like it a great deal. Powerfully sang, IMO.

My God, if you imagine he had Freddies hairstyle circa 1989 he's the spitting image.
