Opener "Sins of My Youth" blends harmonic vocals with a pumping bassline, while the hand claps and cheery keyboard on lead single "Animal" with a line that requests you to "take a bite of my heart tonight."Other good songs on the set are Our War and, Girls and Boys in School.

Queen and Freddie Mercury

    Freddie Mercury was born Farrokh Bulsara on Thursday September 5th 1946 on the small spice island of Zanzibar.He died 24th november 1991.
Freddie was  an excellent sportsman,but it was his artistic skills at drawing and music where he excelled.
After Jimi Hendrix exploded onto the scene in 1967, and Freddie became an ardent fan, he spent time sketching and drawing his hero, drawings he would frame and use to decorate the walls of his flat in Kensington.
       A fellow student at Ealing College was bass player Tim Staffell, with whom Freddie became good friends. As Tim's and Freddie's friendship became closer, Tim took him along to rehearsals of his band called Smile, with Brian May on the guitar and Roger Taylor on the drums. Freddie got on famously with Brian and Roger and loved the sound that Smile had achieved.He also had immense admiration  for Brian's guitar playing.Freddie left Ealing College in June 1969, with a diploma in graphic art and design.
    In 1971 John Deacon joined the band and Queen were complete. Freddie designed the band's logo using their birth signs two fairies for him (Virgo), two lions for Roger and John (Leo) and a crab for Brian (Cancer). Freddie was the author of the first Queen song that entered the British charts Seven Seas Of Rhye, the first big hit Killer Queen and the most famous Queen song that was on the top of charts for 9 weeks Bohemian Rhapsody.
