Day 2: Queen

Tonight my husband and I had a group of friends over for a movie night. We’ve been indulging in chips, pizza rolls, and this insanely tasty Guinness beer bread. But tonight’s movie choice…spot on.

Bohemian Rhapsody. Man oh man. A great film, I honestly learned so much about Queen, about Freddie, wow! Music is a deep passion of mine and it was pretty cool watching the story of Queen unfold. Beyond that, I loved how a huge theme was family. This band was a family. It’s amazing how music can do that. It bonds people in a special way when you get creative juices flowing together.

It’s pretty neat watching the humility of Freddie Mercury as he owns up to his conceitedness at a part in the movie. He did his own thing and still there was a problem – it wasn’t his family. At the end of the day, that’s what is most important. His story was sad. But beautiful.

Anyways. If you’re wondering why I’m listening to Queen a lot more these days, now you know.

  1. That was my favorite movie of 2018! I am glad it did well at the Oscars. For the record, I dusted off “Queen’s Greatest Hits” and have been plying it frequently. If you go to YouTube, you can find a side-by-side Rami Malek & Freddie Mercury at Wmbley video.
