    So would I at times. There are times when Queen's bombast gets on my nerves. Other times I like them. But Mercury's voice is better than Dylan's just as an instrument.

    Well the reason you're not impressed with anything is Freddie Mercury related Groovy is because your mind was made up a long time ago that you don't like vocalists like Freddie. As if any example was going to change your mind on Mr. Mercury. :D

    I mean, as someone who is so rooted in blues how receptive would you really be towards a singer who is heavily inspired by opera? :heheh:

    And as far as the hype goes though.....Freddie isn't any more over hyped than Paul is for being in the Beatles. If Queen can get flack for a goofy song like "Fat Bottomed Girls" then The Beatles can get just as much for silly songs like "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?". :heheh:

    So, really...you *think* you got me figured out? :D

    Well, you're wrong.

    "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?" wasn't even The Beatles biggest song, or most famous song, or even near it...

    Meanwhile, '' "Fat Bottomed Girls" was one of Queen's biggest hits...

    Anyway, you're putting words in my mouth - I never said "Fat Bottomed Girls" was a silly or goofy song - I said if this is an example of Freddie so called ''great voice'' - I'm not impressed at all. ''Octive scale without dropping into a falsetto'' and all.:heheh:

    And Paul McCartney hyped for being in The Beatles?...

    Yeah, ok.

    ^^^

    I don't see Queen fans posting alot of hype.

    No one is trying to trick anyone into liking Freddie. He's a great singer that you don't like.

    Absolutely F'N amazing... I have sat here and just read through 9 pages worth of what is possibly the most asinine thread I've ever read on any board in my life.

    I mean seriously folks, comparing Paul and Freddie is like comparing a Hyundai and a Porsche... you can't. I'm not saying either is better than the other. What I am saying is they are SOOOO different they can not be compared on ANY meaningful level to start with. There is absolutely no common denominator here.

    The bands they come from can't even be compared on any meaningful level they are so different. An apple is an apple and an orange is an orange... both taste good... just enjoy them. Sheeeeez....

    I love McCartney, but Freddie was the best. IMHO

    Agreed. You really don't see a lot of Queen fans hyping Freddie's voice. It can stand alone as great without anyone having to point that out. The critics and fans enjoy it, so he did something right. :grinthumb

    THANK YOU! Why were these two even compared in the first place? Freddie was totally unique and theatrical and dynamic and I can't think of a single "rock" singer who is even similar to him!


    But guys, there's no use in arguing, otherwise I can see this thread going on for an eternity. Seems when Freddie is in the discussion, there's always going to be controversy. :bonk:

    Hyped up vocals examples...like the videos you posted.

    This thread is getting to the point of knit-picking.

    And ''No one is trying to trick anyone into liking Freddie''?

    huh?...no one was saying that?

    This is getting silly.

    Posting cool tunes is not hype. :heheh: Hype is a form of trickery to make a buying public like something that really isn't all that great.

    The only thing silly about all this is you don't like Freddie (and opinions are not silly anyway) ...I voted Paul...sure...but Freddie kicks ass. But at the end of the day it's only my opinion.

    :cheers2
