Oh, sweet-peeps, we are heading into a Queen tale on the big screen as Rami Malik attempts to embody the late, great Freddie Mercury. God Save (the) Queen! Will he pull it off? Will Stephen T. McCarthy's 8 Ball chime in?
All hail my dear friends, FAR AWAY EYES (never gone...never forgotten...NEVAAHHH!) and STEPHEN T. McCARTHY. This is our game plan: a new Battle gets posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and results appear magically six days later, on the 7th and 21st, when I add my own humble and unroyal vote to break a tie (if necessary), math it up, and announce the winner.
What would Freddie say about all this? Who wants to live forever...on film? I suspect he would; he always seemed to crave the audience's attention and delight in the way he would control their responses.
THE ORIGINAL: BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
The original, the iconic, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is the tune to beat for this battle. Who dares challenge such a powerhouse? Wayne and Garth?
CONTENDER #1: PANIC AT THE DISCO
Are instruments required for this battle? Aw, heck no! Next up.....
CONTENDER #2: PENTATONIX
How much of a purist are you? You have to admit it takes guts to take on a classic. In two versions that are very close to the original, which one do YOU prefer? Come on, you can tell me, your ole' pal Cherdo...but I won't keep it a secret!
Speakin' of secrets I won't keep...there are some great battles that need your input. Click on the links below and give them your two cents or more. Round it up to a nickel, we're a wild bunch. See you on the 21st with the outcome!
