Hi guys.

I love this song by the unbeatable Freddie Mercury. I made my video story from the feeling I got for this song while watching Highlander. I felt that a vampire might feel the same way after snacking on many lovers over the decades.

It was interesting that after seeing a picture I posted for this video on Facebook the producer for the upcoming movie "Atlanta Vampire Movie" contacted me to be in be in the movie. It's a Vampire spoof. It's gonna be so fun to make.

@Elena,

I just saw Highlander last year, and I was singing this song and "Princes of the Universe" for a straight week. I really dig your interpretation, and I liked the concept of the video :P [thought the lovers' deaths were silly, but funny]. The operatic, crooning quality of your voice does give away to an almost succubus or vampiress-like mournful ballad, which is an interesting take on the original song. I really like the ring of your head voice. Great listen, great fun.

Thank you, Java.

I know I had replied to this thread and now it is gone. Adolph, has my account been hacked?

I thought the same thing, Ron. I came in the next day and couldn't find my post and I was thinking "I know I put it here somewhere". haha. Then I checked my email and saw Robert's explanation and reposted.

(wonder what you said the first time around)

Incredible! Great performance and video!

Thanks, Igor. You did a fantastic job with Queen with "Show must go on".

Also thank you to Gneetapp and mvrasseli. This was the sound I was going for with my Soprano voice. I am Opera trained and like to change song to fit my voice. Igor, now he sings them exactly like the original artists.

I liked what you did. The modern rhythm was a surprise but it still worked, I think.

I also associate this song with the movie, "Thi Highlander." And director Russell Mulcahy's odd assortment of actors.

Christopher Lambert, a Frenchman with a thick accent playing a scot. Sean Connery, a scot with Arabic heritage, playing a Spaniard. But hey, that's acting!

And when I hear this song, I think of my first wife, Deidre Lynn Stone, 12-19-1962 to 07-28-1992.

"Only one sweet moment set aside for us ..."

Anyway, keep doing what you do.

Did you once cover "Bonnie Portmoor", also from this movie? I know you would have the right voice for it. It was something of a hit for singer Loreena McKennitt.
