Freddie Mercury's Best Work

I love music and language and hybridization of music genres and cultures. This clip of Beethoven's 5th is a wonderful example of what can be done when musical genre's collide. Other examples began for me with Freddie Mercury and Monserrat Caballe's album Barcelona where opera, gospel, and rock met to create beautiful sounds. We can still enjoy pure rock or pure gospel or pure Operas or Symphonies but what a thrill to hear other musical blendings.
