Queen Greatest Hits Pack
I've loved Queen since youth. I would listen to their Greatest Hits album night and day. Through studies, through happy moments, Freddie Mercury's voice would come of my speakers and feel the room with amazing sounds.
Back then, I had only greatest hits I CD, which covers their more early songs - from 1973 to 1980.
When my brother bought me their Hits II album, I was amazed. It covers their hits from 1982 to 1991. Freddy's voice gets huskier in those years, because of smoking, but more powerful. It gives the songs so much power.
The third album, mentioned here, is really a candy. It has all other amazing songs, which weren't included in the previous discs. They contain more poetic work by Queen, which are very melodic and fun to hear.
There are songs from the amazing album Innuendo, final that came when Mercury was still alive. There is so much depth in there.
I wonder if Queen's music would remain so famous if the lead singer would still be alive. His death made them a rarity. Isn't it interesting to think how much more of beautiful music they could create ?
Because after Freddie's death, they never put out anything really good. What proves that Freddie was the most important contributor to this band's success.
Did you know that Mercury has recorded about three songs with Michael Jackson ? They should have been included in Thriller, the most successful album of all times. Unfortunately, Freddie was out of time and could not finish the recordings, so Jackson made it with Mick Jagger.
