Dear God, please give us back Freddie Mercury. In exchange, you may take Justin Bieber.

I was in line at an FYE movie store yesterday, and there was a life-sized thing of Bieber.  Behind it was a woman browsing DVD's, and I swear to god they looked identical.

Life sized? It was only 3' tall?

Fucking masterpiece. Intelligent use of of harmony, counterpoint, rhythm.

A dead genre. What a shame.

Now that you mention it, I dunno.

I love this from the wikipedia entry for the song:

The song's producer, Roy Thomas Baker, related how Mercury once played the opening ballad section on the piano for him: "He played the beginning on the piano, then stopped and said, 'And this is where the opera section comes in!' Then we went out to eat dinner."

Reminds me of the one about Hendrix on All Along the Watchtower:

Bongiovi recalled, "Recording these new ideas meant he would have to erase something. In the weeks prior to the mixing, we had already recorded a number of overdubs, wiping track after track. [Hendrix] kept saying, ‘I think I hear it a little bit differently.’”

We used to celebrate giants in the recording industry.  Now the "artists" are just barbie dolls held up by stylists, makeup artists, special effects, songwriters, voice coaches, producers, etc.  Half of modern musicians could walk on to a stage having first heard their set three days earlier and give as sincere a performance as any they usually do.

I'm keeping an eye on Sara Bareilles, she has a uniquely genuine approach to music, and the education, intelligence, and talent to create true works of art.  Needs a little experience, but her compositions and arrangements are very richly layered, and her lyrics have an unusual literacy to them.

Amen. Mercury was much less faggy than Bieber could ever hope to be.

Instead of "BOOM HEADSHOT" I now say "COBAINED!"

They just don't make rock musicians like they used to.
