Excess is part of my nature. Dullness is a disease. I really need danger and excitement. I’m never scared of putting myself out on a limb.” – Freddie Mercury

Hungarian Rhapsody

  Seraja   5

Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live in Budapest is a concert film of the British rock band Queen’s performance at the Nép Stadium in Budapest on 27 July 1986. It was part of the band’s final tour with original lead singer Freddie Mercury, The Magic Tour. Queen were one of the few bands from Western Europe to perform in the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War. Equally important, the audience is with the band every step of the way. One reason Queen could play stadiums and fill them up was because they had the ability to make everyone in the audience feel like they were part of a great occasion.

WThat ability was on full display in Budapest, where an estimated 80,000 fans packed Budapest’s Népstadion (“people’s stadium”. to hear Queen perform, making it the largest concert ever performed in that stadium. The film had a limited release in theatres worldwide on 20 September 2012. The concert was released on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time on 5 November 2012 worldwide, except in the United States where it was released a day later. The concert title is a play on the Hungarian Rhapsodies by Franz Liszt and one of Queen’s most celebrated hits, “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

Is This the World We Created

June 19, 2020   Seraja   2

Is This the World We Created …? is a song by the British rock band Queen. It is the ninth and final track of the album The Works, which was released in 1984. The song was written by Freddie Mercury and Brian May in the city of Munich. The reason for writing this song was that Mercury saw a news story about poverty in Africa. The song was written as a last minute replacement for There Must Be More to Life Than This, which later on Mercury’s solo album Mr. Bad Guy appeared. Originally, the song would become a piano ballad, but the piano was replaced by May’s acoustic guitar. Mercury and May played the song at the conclusion of Live Aid in 1985.
