| They rocked us!
It took some damned long time but "Bohemian Rhapsody" film finally came to the screens and astoundend audiences. It's not perfect but it really touches your heart and even make you rediscover Queen if you got lost or weren't much enthuasiastic about them. But this here review is about one of their greatest song moments: "We Will Rock You", and I have to go back to the movie because it reminds of how the song was created with May wanting a song to make audiences be part of that with movements and louder sounds that weren't coming from the band's instruments. It's just clapping, stomping of feet as an army march and Freddie Mercury's potent and unforgettable voice chanting words of power. And then a hit was made...

As for clip, considering it was a matter of music videos coming to its infancy back then, it really sells the true idea of using the band members performing the song as it is, clapping and stomping, Freddie singing and then finally Brian May rocking that final solo. It's not about the visual, it's all about the sound created. From then on, Queen evolved in making more and more spectacular visual delights such as "A King of Magic", "Under Pressure" and "Breakthrough", just to name a few from his classics or lesser known songs and videos. And gotta admit: the whole routine of "We Will Rock You" is one of the most addictive and interesting ever created. If you ever went through school age or some loud event you've probably done the PA-PA-PA with your hands or your feet. The video might look cheap and simple...but we're in it for the music, imagery is secondary and that came from an era where the music was the main thing and not the other way around. Thumbs up for me on "We Will Rock You". 8/10
