Media Center>Bohemian Rhapsody Spin Off Thread - Incredible Voices
Pants 09:36 PM 12-03-2018
I always loved Queen growing up and their Greatest Hits CD (you know the one) was a staple for me. I watched the movie a couple of weeks ago and saw someone mention the depravity of Freddie in the Bohemian Rhapsody thread. That piqued my curiosity and I had to find out more.

So I finally decided to go on a Freddie Mercury tear. Among other things, I ended up watching a video on Youtube by Polyphonic, attempting to explain the things that made his voice so legendary.

That got me thinking about which voice would be the GOAT for me. I kept thinking about the times my mind was blown or voices that made me want to cry or gave me goosebumps. I remembered being dumbfounded the first time I heard the crazy Mongolian Khoomei stuff. You know, shit like that.

I still don't know my personal "greatest voice of all time," but GODDAMN, does this Lizzie Higgins lady singing this song come close:



If you feel like it, share your GOATs. What voice/song stirs that something "ancient" up in you and makes you all kinds of weird emotional? :-)

It was written for somebody with a much more poppier voice. She isn't even supposed to be singing the part from 3:38 to 4:14 but she did because she can.

Such emotion and passion. Rumor is he destroyed his cords on this take.

To appreciate it, compare it to covers, or even studio sessions where they try it as ensemble harmony.
...Sir Paul as backup, you mean? That one is John singing lead.

Sandy Denny - an all time great singer. Best known for accompanying Plant on The Battle of Evermore, but she was prolific.

for the Deep Purple fans. Blackmore is in this video. Bit cynical of me to use as buttress for my King's X love. Oh well

Huh, guess so. I definitely heard a story on the radio that Paul sang lead and ragged out his voice, . . way back when the first reissues came out, on NPR if I recall. Never occurred to me to fact check.

Learn something new every day.

A good portion of it sounded like Lennon anyway



Go on, move to it if you have to.

The lyrical stylings of Yoko, "You're a dildo, I'm a whore. I'm a Barbie Doll, you're at war."

It's all of them, the part that might shred vocal cords anyway lol

"It's a love that has no past" is a genius lyric.

Im surprised to see no mention of my top #1 voice of all time.

Maynard James Keenan. This guy is the GOAT. Incredible range. Visionary lyricist. Powerful and varied structure. The.Absolute.GOAT.
