A CASE FOR RHAP­SODIZ­ING

In the words of one pro: “Go for it”

Bloomberg Businessweek (Asia) - - ETC. -

Marc Mar­tel, who per­forms as Fred­die Mer­cury in Queen’s sanc­tioned cover band, the Queen Ex­trav­a­ganza, ad­vises get­ting ev­ery­one in­volved in the middle third— the choral part that be­gins with “I see a lit­tle sil­hou­ette” and ends with “for meeeeee.” “It’s ridicu­lous to try to sing that by your­self,” he says, adding that you shouldn’t even try to hit the “for meeeeee” (we think it’s a falsetto B flat in the sixth oc­tave) that was orig­i­nally sung by Queen’s drum­mer, Roger Tay­lor. “Pick an­other note if you know any­thing about har­mony.”
