While waiting to see a live Green Day show in Hyde Park, the massive crowd of over 65,000 people, without being told to, sung a rousing version of the Queen song “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Man, it’s nice to see a huge group of people acting collectively to create something beautiful. Skip to ~4:00 for the obligatory head-banging; it’s kind of like stuffing 65,000 people into Wayne and Garth’s car.
These guys are charming as hell. I can’t not love them.
Maybe you’ve heard of Lake Street Dive singing Jackson 5 on the streets of Boston, or maybe you caught them killing it with their Halloween version of Bohemian Rhapsody.
They’re original, catchy, positive, great performers, clearly great collaborators, and they make me wish like hell there was still such a thing as a “music industry” that would shower them with money so they could make more and more art!
