LOST IN THE NOISE

December 27 — SOMEBODY TO LOVE, Queen (1976)

img_1550The most inspiring clip I’ve seen of George Michael since his passing is a 1992 tribute concert to Freddie Mercury, wherein Michael’s performance of “Somebody to Love” is nothing short of spine-tingling. The end, with all of Wembley Stadium clapping in unison, gives a glimpse of music’s power to unify. The performance led me into an all-day dive of Queen, and another reminder of Freddie Mercury’s chutzpah and charisma.
