Amazing voice of Freddie Mercury "a cappella version" Bohemian Rhapsody
This wonderful video is a clear example of what is extraordinary the voice of Freddie Mercury, beloved Queen singer. Here he performed his famous "Bohemian Rhapsody" in an unusual "a cappella version", just with his voice, without instrumentation. This is certainly the most famous song of the band, so much that in 2000 it was elected "song of the century." Its title is motivated by its unusual musical structure, which refers precisely to the "Rhapsody".
Freddie always loved to experiment with new musical structures, previously we can find some examples of this style in songs as "My Fairy King", or "The March Of The Black Queen", and especially in the first song that he wrote for Queen, "Liar". "Bohemian Rhapsody" is a very elaborate song, in fact the voices, almost always, were recorded overlap several times, even making 180 vocal tracks. For this reason the band used five studios. In this video the voice of Freddie is how "freed", without instrumental part, making sure to give the best of its extraordinary ductility, and especially the innate ability, which only Freddie owns, of moving, seemingly without effort, from the higher vocal registers to lowest (remember that Mercury had an extension voice of four and a half octaves).
So this video is proof that Freddie has so incredible voice, to have no need of musical accompaniment, even if it's a difficult song like this. Composing "Bohemian Rhapsody" Mercury has developed a real milestone in the music history, a song that fully deserves the title of "song of the century".
