Should technology help resuscitate Freddie (or MJ or John) out of their DNA one day?

I suppose I have to disagree with you that RP "rebels against" the hits.  The term 'eclectic' does not exclude the hits in anyway.  And just because something is pop-music (remember, POP comes from POPULAR) doesn't mean it's good or bad; just that it's 'en vogue' or 'a la mode' - and I'm sure that's part of why the ratings are so high for those tracks.  Besides, a lot of us believe that the late 60s to late 70s (pre-disco) were the height of Rock-Pop just like the 30s were the height of big band-Pop or the 2000s the height of 'auto-tune crap-Pop' LOL

And I say LONG LIVE RP and thanks to BnR for continuing to play what they want...it is THEIR station, and they'll play what they wanna play.... Otherwise, I don't think we'd hear ANYTHING at all.

It's not that Bill is rebelling against hit/classic rock.  He's promoting music that deserves airplay.  Often the "classics" are deserving of airplay, even if you can hear them elsewhere.  For people like me who avoid terrestrial radio whenever possible, it's nice to hear a great old song thrown in with the new ones.

The regular version of this song no longer does it for me. I prefer the derivations!

Seconded; a great song that I never need to hear again.
Now 10cc, I could think of lots of their tunes I'd like to hear!

 Freddie Mercury's birth name is Farrokh Bulsara. He really liked those brits... why are they actively preventing further gems like him?

Agreed, There were lots of gems from their first three albums and many after this album. Most got no air play so if you didn't listen to the entire LP you missed out on them.

Great Queen song, but if you like BR, there are some others worth giving a listen to which are no less outstanding:
Millionaire Waltz (A Day AT The Races)
March Of The Black Queen (Queen II)

You Take My Breath Away (A Day At The Races - not as layered, but immeasurably tender).

I love this song and album, I just wish they would play more stuff from their first three albums. Their best stuff and their live shows from this period were epic. Most people only know their stuff from the 80's. They earned their chops on the road playing live. Just a suggestion, watch the blue ray offering of live at the Rainbow from 1974 or their live from the Hammersmith Odeon in 75. The boys put on some shows.
