Queen performing Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song live in Berlin, Germany in 1986 during the Magic Tour. If you’re asking me, this is one of the funniest Queen bloopers ever.

Freddie’s lyrics:

The young man’s soul and the ice and snow
Hot springs blow and to go back to go
Oh, whoa
Ships are the new land, fighting the wars
screaming and shouting - Oh, I’m your overload!
You’re sweeping - threshing oar.
La la la la (Falsetto syllables).

Today in 1975, Queen started recording ’Bohemian Rhapsody’ at Rockfield studio’s in Monmouth, Wales, (the song was recorded over three weeks). Freddie Mercury had mentally prepared the song beforehand and directed the band throughout the sessions. May, Mercury, and Taylor sang their vocal parts continually for ten to twelve hours a day, resulting in 180 separate overdubs. (via thisdayinmusic.com)
