Queen co-founder and guitarist, Brian May, took his official Instagram account today to announce the tenth episode of the YouTube series named ‘Queen The Greatest’ and hinted at his favorite Freddie Mercury song ever.
The YouTube channel of Queen is publishing regular videos starting from March 19, 2021, to celebrate Queen’s Golden Jubilee. The special series of videos aims to highlight fifty extraordinary moments from the Queen story so far and the series will end with the 50th episode.
As you may already remember, after the huge success of ‘A Night At The Opera’ and the legendary ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ all Queen fans were eager to see what the band would do next. In 1976, the band released their fifth studio album named ‘A Day At The Races’ and ‘Somebody To Love’ was the second single of the recording. According to the caption that Bri shared, he thinks that it was one of the biggest hits of late legend Freddie Mercury.
Here is what Brian wrote in the caption:
“Another gem in the series!!! Here’s the gen! ‘Queen: 1976 Somebody To Love – Freddie’s Greatest Hit?‘
‘Freddie came in very well prepared with a lot of vocal parts and we just worked our way through it. Yes, there was a very good feeling. I always remember thinking ’Yeah, this is going to be something great.’ – Brian May.
This week we celebrate what is undoubtedly one of Queen’s greatest hits, the Freddie Mercury & gospel-inspired masterpiece, Somebody To Love.”
