Best Queen Covers

Recommended Posts

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.

This performance required two assistants to pull stops!

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

      Vancouver Miniature Painters picked this for the first paint club item. It is Queen by Life Miniatures. I wanted to do more with it, and ended up doing the face and skin early.... then rushing the rest. All things considered, she turned out darn nice! Painted with a mix of Reaper, Vallejo, and Kimera. Reaper and Vallejo more on the skin and metal, Kimera more on the cloth. Many thanks to the paint club leader for good photos!

      The Light and The Dark
      I can't tell you how much I love this band! they've got a week left in this amazing kickstarter, and you should totally go check it out! 
      *****
      From the kickstarter page:
      About
      It’s been over four years since we’ve released an album. That’s about to change. 
       
      The Light is coming 3/20/20.
       
      Here’s the plan: We are going back into the studio with the producer of Carry The Fire, Alex Wong, to record two sister albums that will reflect the dual sides of Delta Rae: The Light and The Dark. The Light will be hopeful, soulful, and sun-kissed and released in Spring 2020. It will include songs like “The Wrong Ocean” and “Any Better Than This.” The Dark will be mysterious, witchy and raw and released soon after (on/before March 2021). We will go on an expansive tour with each record, crafting live experiences beyond just music, to bring these worlds to life for you.
       
      But we need your help. For the past seven years we have been signed to record labels that have helped fund our albums, music videos, photography, and artwork. But as of last month, that has changed. 
       
      We are incredibly excited to announce that we are independent once again. 
       
      And we are humbly asking you to help us make our most ambitious project come to life. We made our first album, Carry The Fire, independently with the help of amazing fans on Kickstarter. Together, we learned just what it takes to make an album. So, here’s where your money will go:
      If we raise $30,000, we make The Light
      $10,000 Production
      $3,000 Auxiliary Musicians (Strings, Horns, etc.)
      $10,000 Mixing
      $2,000 Mastering
      $5,000 Physical Production (CD + Art)
       
      If we raise $60,000, we make The Light and The Dark
       
      And any additional money will mean we can make *MUSIC VIDEOS* and help spread the word about these two albums. 
       
      And this is just the beginning. Moving forward — for the first time in a long time — we will fully control and own the music we release. We can make and share live albums, singles, and protest songs whenever we want. This means more mystical music videos and wildly ambitious creative projects. You will be helping to launch all of this. 
      We know we already owe you all so much. And it means the world to us that you have helped us live this dream and make this art for the last 10 years. We appreciate you all more than you know and don’t ask lightly for your hard-earned money and help. But we also know you have made us a part of your lives and built friendships and community around Delta Rae that transcend anything we could do alone. You are a part of our story — the most important part. 
       
      So let’s have a blast doing this together. Get a big group of friends and host a house party. Pick a song you want to hear us sing. Get psyched for some one-of-a-kind merch. Find the tier that sounds most fun to you. Help spread this campaign so we can make more “Bottom of the River“ and “Dance in The Graveyards”-style epic music videos. 
      Thank you for being a part of this journey, your support and loyalty will help us make this next chapter real. We promise to work harder than ever to build a world of goodness, magic, and feeling through our music. Because you can’t have the light without the dark. And we still carry the fire. 
      Love always.
      Delta Rae
