Queen’s Christmas message

Merry Christmas.

Another Rhapsodic Christmas

December 9, 2009

The reality pop star TV programme, X-Factor, is favourite with the bookmakers to land its fifth UK Christmas number one in a row, even though the winner of the competition itself has yet to be decided. Record Companies, in common with other retailers, make a healthy profit at this time of year and the seasonal chart topper attracts significant media coverage.

Poor Cliff Richard, although he’s probably a millionaire, has only a few weeks to reach the top spot and keep his record of having a number one record in the 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and maybe noughties. It doesn’t look likely but the bachelor boy can be consoled of the fact of having three Christmas crackers at the apex.

The dearth of novelty and actual Christmas related songs dwindles year by year. The halcyon days of Mud and Slade slugging it out in a Santa Wars are long gone. Oh for a genuine Christmas carol to knock the smug Simon Cowell infested wannabee pop idols off the top of the tree would give me Christmas cheer.

And now we come to the greatest song ever written: Bohemian Rhapsody. Twice this magnum opus has been a festive best seller although it has no Christmas theme what it does have is the best male vocal performance ever, the best guitar riff ever, an a cappella opening and mock opera for the masses; truly Mozart was never as good as this.

The composer of this piece of genius, Freddie Mercury, a man with a great sense of humour, would love the tribute taking YouTube by storm. The lovable Muppets have made a parody of the song and world famous video. This deserves the number one top spot. Queen meets Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem band. Brilliant!

A phantom spammer e-mail is doing the rounds telling the recipients to buy ten copies of the song and pass the message on to fifteen friends or else. This flagrant attempt to get the Muppets (and Queen) the Christmas number one is a shady business practise too far for some.
Ahem, the E-mail originated in Glasgow. I’m saying nothing else.
