Duetul

Am menţionat de curând aici ultimul album Queen înregistrat cu Freddie Mercury şi intitulat Innuendo. Printre piesele cu aromă de generic final se numără şi These Are The Days of Our Lives, al cărei videoclip este ultimul în care apare marele vocal al trupei. Freddie arăta deja rău atunci, tonele de machiaj de pe faţa sa şi luminile folosite de către regizor nereuşind să mascheze acest lucru. Dar nu despre asta vom vorbi acum. Cu tot respectul pentru inegalabilul artist, există o variantă cover a acestei melodii care este mult mai bună decât originalul. Deşi poate "cover" este mult spus, trupa de pe scenă fiind tot Queen, dar cu George Michael şi Lisa Stansfield ca vocalişti. Interpretarea a avut loc în cadrul unui concert tribut Freddie Mercury care s-a petrecut pe 20 aprilie 1992 pe stadionul Wembley din Londra şi a fost televizat pentru o audienţă de 1 miliard de oameni. Cele 72.000 de bilete puse în vânzare pentru acest concert s-au epuizat în doar 2 ore.
Personal consider acest duet ca fiind cel mai frumos şi mai elegant la care am asistat vreodată. Asta în ciuda acelei roţi de metal pe care o veţi remarca în urechea lui George - fiţi blânzi, ne aflam la începutul anilor '90, hehe.

Now, straight back from Rochdale, would you please welcome Miss Lisa Stansfield!

Sometimes I get to feelin'
I was back in the old days, long ago
When we were kids, when we were young
Things seemed so perfect, you know
The days were endless, we were crazy, we were young
The sun was always shinin', we just lived for fun
Sometimes I feel like lately I just don't know
The rest of my life seems just a show

Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true
When I look and I find I still love you

You can't turn back the clock, you can't turn back the tide
Ain't that a shame (ain't that a shame)
I'd like to go back one time on a roller coaster ride
When life was just a game
No use in sitting and thinkin' on what you did
When you can lay back and enjoy it through your kids
Sometimes it seems like lately I just don't know
Better sit back and go with the flow

'Cos these are the days of our lives
They've flown in the swiftness of time
Those days are all gone now but some things remain
When I look I find no change

Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing's still true
When I look and I find I still love you

I still love you
I love you
Still love you
