This unique song is entitled “There Must Be More To Life Than This” and was included in the documentary film “The Great Pretender” which depicts the life and career of former Queen frontman.
The documentary was broadcast on BBC television on 16 October 2012 and includes numerous sequences from videos of the rock band Queen, as well as spectacular images from Freddie Mercury’s 39th anniversary party held at Mrs. Henderson club in Munich, in 1985, an event where the British star and his guests appeared disguised.
In addition to this special musical collaboration ]Jackson/Mercury], the documentary includes rare archive images with Freddy Mercury and Rod Stewart performing “Take Another Piece of My Heart” – a 1984 song that was not launched either – and images from a show performed by Freddie Mercury in 1979, in collaboration with the Royal Ballet Company.
“The Great Pretender”, which will soon be available on DVD and Blu-ray, contains also some of Mercury’s first interviews, filmed in Australia, as well as an interview for the American television NBC, both from 1976.
Queen’s guitarist Brian May revealed recently on its website a number of details about a film project that will be based on the life and career of Freddie Mercury.
May thus confirmed that the film – which will feature actor Sacha Baron Cohen – is due to be released in 2014.
“The pieces of the puzzle begin to settle, and although we are confronted with a slight delay to the initial schedule, thefilming will begin in spring next year and Sacha Baron Cohen will play Freddie,” said British guitarist.
The movie about the life and career of Freddie Mercury will be based on a screenplay by Peter Morgan who was twice nominated to Oscar awards for the scripts of the films “The Queen” and “Frost / Nixon”.
Michael Jackson, nicknamed “King of Pop”, famous for hits such as “Thriller”, “Billie Jean”, “Beat It”, “Bad”, “Man in the Mirror” “Dirty Diana” and “Black or White” died on June 25, 2009, in a period of intense rehearsals for the “This Is It Tour”, his farewell tour, during which the star was supposed to give 50 concerts. The promotional concert was scheduled to kick off in July 2009 at London’s O2 Arena but tragically that never happened.
During his outstanding career, Jackson was honored with 13 Grammy Awards and over 750 million copies of his albums/songs have been sold worldwide.
Michael Jackson died at the age of 50, after a severe poisoning with Propofol (Diprivan), a powerful anesthetic used in hospitals and medical clinics. The pop legend used propofol at home as sleeping pill with the complicity of his doctor Conrad Murray.
Found guilty of involuntary murder, Conrad Murray received the maximum sentence of 4-year-prison term in November 2011.
Queen released 15 albums till band’s collapse in 1991, after Freddie Mercury’s death. The artist died at 45, on November 24, 1991, one day after he publicly announced that he was sick with AIDS.
Songs like “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Do not Stop Me Now”, composed by Mercury entered the pantheon of rock and a new generation of artists, including Lady Gaga, Robbie Williams, Foo Fighters and Muse feature Queen’s influence.
The concerts where Mercury sang “We Are The Champions”, “Killer Queen”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” are considered eternal moments, and the musical comedy “We Will Rock You” released in 2002, overwhelmed the worldwide stages and is still played in London’s theaters.
