With the Bohemian Rhapsody movie being such a succes and knowing a lot of forumites like Queen's music, I was wondering what you would consider to be good covers of Queen's music.

 

We all know the original which can't be beaten of course.

But the music lives on, and as a tribute many bands covered Queen.

 

What do you think to be a good cover?

More than one answer is possible.

 

I thought this might be fun.

So here I go:

 

 Lords of Black - Innuendo

One does not simply cover Queen! Normally I do like covers, because they can be quite good. But in this case, I never found anyone who could compete with the unique sound Queen created.

 

I do not appreciate it. It's simply heresy.

I'm fond of this rendition by acapella group Pentatonix, both for the sound (which is lovely) and for the video, which is amusing to watch.

Does the Freddie Mercury farewell concert count?  There's the rendition of "Under Pressure" by Annie Lennox and David Bowie that's spot on.  https://youtu.be/NLC6tkg38K8

      The Weitz Method, created by Andrew Weitz, a Juilliard-educated professional musician, is based on a revolutionary method of music notation called Weitz Notation that allows students to play piano in minutes. Once a student learns the basics of The Weitz Method, they will have the ability to play any song in Weitz Notation. Andrew Weitz wants to bring The Weitz Method to people all over the world via downloadable video lessons.
       
      Why 'The Weitz Method'
      'The Weitz Method' works by breaking down each song into simple notation using familiar shapes. No need to spend hours learning how to read music! 'The Weitz Method' gives you the freedom to learn the songs you choose immediately. Say goodbye to the typical beginner tunes and hello to your favorite pop melody. With the funds to purchase song rights, 'The Weitz Notation Library' has the potential to grow exponentially.  
      Let's face it: you're busy! With responsibilities, friends and family, your time is at a premium. You deserve the freedom to pursue your passion for music at your own pace. That's why 'The Weitz Method' will consist of a downloadable material that's always ready when you are.

      Dear Friends, I wanted to invite you to join me for a new musical adventure, "Dawnstar: Eternity"! The music features cinematic and fantasy stylistics, and this album is the third in the Dawnstar series, which I have been conjuring inspired by astronomy and The Elder Scrolls during the past year. I hope that you may join me on this quest for musical exploration as this new album is inspired also by several art and science disciplines. I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign in hopes to make the production possible, and I hope that you may consider joining this new project and enjoy being a part of it. Thank you very much for supporting and inspiring me! Julia <3

      This was a diorama entry in the Crystal Brush competition at Adepticon last month. 
       
      (The Adepticon 2018 picture thread is here, new images still being added.)
       
      Does anyone recognize the spider-centaur queen figure at the top? Someone asked me what mini it was and I couldn’t answer.
