💥A Winter's Tale💥
On December 11th 1995, exactly 22 years ago today, Queen released "A Winter's Tale" as the second single from their Made in Heaven album.
✨Written by Freddie Mercury, the song was conposed after the Innuendo sessions.
✨Freddie was ispired to write this song by staring out the windows of his apartment, in Montreux. The song has a psychedelic, dreamy feel, and describes what Mercury saw outside the windows.
✨Freddie wrote, composed, and did the vocals and keyboards for it (but the track is credited to Queen).
✨In the documentary "Queen - Champions of the World", it was stated that this was, if not the first, then an extremely rare style of recording for Freddie, as it was all performed in one take live in the studio. It was stated in the film that Freddie had always insisted upon music being completed prior to the vocal arrangement beginning, but acknowledged that he had little time left and there was not enough time to work on it differently.
✨ The music video, produced after his death, was an epitaph, as Mercury's actual written song notes were displayed alongside imagery and clips of Mercury's past performances.
👉P.S. This is in my opinion one of Freddie's most beautiful compositions and the lyrics are just so painterly that we can see exactly what he was seeing at the time he wrote it. Even though listening to this song makes me miss him even more, it warms my heart to know he was feeling so peaceful and serene at the time and even in his last moments he still managed to see the beauty in everything that surrounded him 😢💔

We’ve got bluesman @MarshallOkell live in The Bunker, get down for a night of free blues and classic times!
Koncert života! Trebalo mi je pola koncerta da procesuiram šta se događa i da se to zapravo meni događa. Moj omiljeni bend ponovo na okupu sa članovima postave koja ih je proslavila, kao jedna velika srećna porodica. Happy, Happy Helloween 🎃
Today THE BALCONIES announced their farewell shows and although that's a bit of a bummer, I will definitely be looking at getting tickets for the Ottawa date tomorrow. I've had the pleasure of seeing them live seven times, and only once was not able to photograph them (supporting Juliette Lewis). These photos were taken between 2010 and 2017.
