"Who Wants To Live Forever"
Written by Brian May
Originally recorded by Queen on the album A Kind Of Magic
Like many of you, I discovered “Who Wants To Live Forever” in the movie Highlander, long before I ever knew of the band Queen. It was likely even before “Bohemian Rhapsody” hit my radar in Wayne’s World. (I can’t be sure, though, as I don't recall how old I was when I saw Highlander.) Safe to say this is one of the first Queen songs I ever heard. It is also one of my favorites... and it is an absolute beast to sing! I’ve had the great pleasure of performing it with various symphonies, including The Boston Pops, and I get chills every time. Freddie was at his best here, and Brian’s songwriting, every bit as spectacular; magical, even. Hope you enjoy this, as I did my best here to do justice not only to the song itself, but also to the incredible arrangement by Michael Kamen.
