Thursday Covers: Somebody to Love

I watched this go out live on my aunt’s TV, wondering how on earth someone like Freddie could have died. There were a number of remarkable performances that day but this one from George Michael was my favourite. If you watch carefully, there is a moment towards the end of the song where it feels like Freddie has joined George on stage and I was surprised to find it sent the hairs on my neck up just like it did when I was a kid.
