The last time of Freddie Mercury "live" in "Another One Bites The Dust"

In this wonderful video we can appreciate the last live performance of Queen (on August 9, 1986, at Knebworth Park, near Stevenage in England, as the last stage of the Magic Tour), in a song became one of their successes planetary: "Another One Bites The Dust," written by bassist John Deacon and published on 22 August 1980.

The single "Another One Bites The Dust / Dragon Attack" initially not was expected to enter in the album “The Game “, but Michael Jackson, friend of the group, lobbied for the single was launched in the USA, making it one of the biggest successes of Queen.

To underline that this piece, despite the massive presence of sound effects, is one of the few songs of album "The Game" not being treated with the synthesizer. The bass line, similar to Good Times of Chic group, as they say, caused some comment on the part of the latter. It is said that there are any messages disreputable reproducing a part of the chorus on the contrary. The rhythm of 110 bpm is shown as the ideal for cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. The song won the 1st place in the charts of the USA, Canada, Japan, Spain, Guatemala and Israel. It does not go rather than the 7th place in the UK and 10th in Italy.

This video is to be appreciated, for of course the extraordinary vocal abilities of Mercury, for his bold and fascinating movements, and even for the innate ability of Freddie to involve the public, making it sing with him. Unfortunately on August 9, 1986, Queen performed live together for last time ever with Freddie Mercury, because of state of health of the british group frontman. Despite this, Queen is the only band in the world capable of doing excite the hearts of those who love them, even after all this time.
