Freddie Mercury on the Queen song he thought was better than Bohemian Rhapsody – WATCH | Music | Entertainment

When it came to writing Somebody To Love, Freddie took a gospel approach as inspired by the early work of Aretha Franklin.

In the video, Freddie said: “And there’s me going on about Aretha Franklin, sort of made them go a bit mad…I just wanted to write something in that kind of thing.

“I was sort of incentivised by the gospel approach that she had on her albums, the earlier albums.”

While Brian May said: “Freddie wanted to be Aretha Franklin, you have to bear this in mind, and that explains everything. He loved Aretha. And, this was his gospel epic.”
