Tribute in November.

In memoriam.

Freddie Mercury
In the remembrance of the unforgettable legend.
Yes, I'm a fan of the rock music. A Freddie Mercury's fan. Since high school... actually since forever, almost... From the '80 when at the radio I've heard songs like "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Radio Ga-ga" or "I Want to Break Free" and followed by so many famous songs... (A list will not be enough to present all my favourites songs; so, the  below selection of the videos is purely made by chance, a simple selection or a way to say something like:  "to let us cling together as the years go by"... or "let us never lose the lessons we have learned"... Just to cite some lyrics from the song "Teo Torriatte"...)
In all these years, I listened all the pieces, all the songs... almost all. Thanks to the internet era, now, it is possible to do that. In the '90, I had some vinyl discs and tapes, (audio and video) and, of course, I cherish them so much. Precious souvenirs from old golden times. Along with the music of Elvis. I admit. I'm a pop-rock music fan. Always.
But for now, my tribute is for Freddie and his excellency in music.

And like in his lyrics I'll always say: "The show must go on"!
RIP 5 September, 1946 - 24 November, 1991

"Freddie Mercury *(5 September 1946 – 24 November 1991) was a British singer, songwriter and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the rock band Queen*. As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and powerful vocals over a four-octave range. As a songwriter, he composed many hits for Queen, including "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Killer Queen," "Somebody to Love," "Don't Stop Me Now," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," and "We Are the Champions." Mercury also led a solo career, and also occasionally served as a producer and guest musician (piano or vocals) for other artists.
Mercury was a Parsi born in the Sultanate of Zanzibar and grew up there and in India until his mid-teens. He died of bronchopneumonia brought on by AIDS on 24 November 1991, one day after publicly acknowledging he had the disease. In 1992 he was posthumously awarded the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music, and his tribute concert was held at Wembley Stadium, London. As a member of Queen, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004, and the band received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002. In 2002, Mercury was placed at number 58 in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons.
He has been voted one of the greatest singers in the history of popular music. In 2005, a poll organised by Blender and MTV2 saw Mercury voted the best male singer of all time. In 2008, Rolling Stone editors ranked him number 18 on their list of the 100 greatest singers ever. In 2009, a Classic Rock poll elected him the best rock singer of all time. Additionally, AllMusic has characterised Mercury as "one of rock's greatest all-time entertainers," who possessed "one of the greatest voices in all of music."

"Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together)" (手をとりあって Teo Toriatte) is a song by Queen from their 1976 album A Day at the Races. Written by guitarist Brian May".
Chorus translation
"The chorus part sung in Japanese goes as follows:

"手を取り合って このまま行こう (Te o toriatte Kono mama ikō)

愛する人よ (Aisuru hito yo)
静かな宵に (Shizuka na yoi ni)
光を灯し (Hikari o tomoshi)
愛しき 教えを抱き (Itoshiki Oshie o idaki)"

The chorus part sung in English is the rough equivalent of:

"Let us cling together as the years go by,
Oh my love, my love,
In the quiet of the night
Let our candles always burn,
Let us never lose the lessons we have learned."
