It was announced today that Queen will be releasing a new album featuring unreleased Freddie Mercury songs by the end of the year. This news makes me jump for joy, a reaction my six-year-old self would quite frankly find appalling, as she was forced to spend every car ride listening to Freddie at top volume when all she wanted was the sweet, sweet sound of New Kids on the Block. I won’t lie, it was torture… or whatever’s worse than torture. My mom was what you’d call obsessed, and did her damnedest to infect everyone around her with Queen fever. At one point, she even had one of my friends singing “sexy boday” at the top of her lungs. It was pretty bad. I don’t know what happened, if I was eventually brainwashed or I finally saw the light, but now I can’t get enough of Freddie’s perfect voice, a voice silenced much, much too soon.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah – bring on the new album!
