Bohemian Rhapsody

Post by Peyton Hicks » 14 May 2019, 23:06

Anyone else think that the release of the Bohemian Rhapsody movie sparked a new love for Queen? I always loved Queen, but I feel like it's really refreshing to see people actually enjoying good music as opposed to what is being released nowadays. :ugeek2:

Yeah, it’s a good one :) Queen has always been a good band, even if some of their most popular stuff is overplayed.
Also looking forward to the new one about Elton John. I’ve read a few biographies, and just like authors, the details in a musician’s work can be really inspirational

I agree. It's introducing a whole new generation to one of my long-time favorite bands, which is my sister's favorite band of all time. Thanks to the film, they are now my 11 year-old niece's favorite group too.
She's totally abandoned the "bubblegum pop" stuff of today, and just listens to Queen and other classic rock groups.

That's awesome! I know they said that some of the details of the movie were wrong and there were a few discrepancies, but I think overall they really captured Freddie's life really well. I enjoyed it a lot!! P.S. Bubblegum pop is the worst...

Definitely! In my experience, it showed me some great songs of theirs I hadn’t heard before and made me want to check out the rest of their music. It also showed me how great of a performer Freddie was.

I honestly have always had a soft spot for Queen. My parents would play their music a lot when I was very young, and I held onto them as I grew. I think "Under Pressure" is one of my favorites of all-time. It never fails to get me pumped up. In anticipation for seeing the movie I poured myself into documentaries about Freddie and the band members and their struggles with music and life in general. My heart aches for them and the things they dealt with. They brought so many people joy together.
