💥You're My Best Friend💥
On May 18th 1976, exactly 43 years ago today, Queen released "You're My Best Friend" as a single from A Night at the Opera album.
✨Written by John Deacon, the song is for his wife Veronica Tetzlaff who has been the mother of his six children and his best friend for "such a long time."
✨Deacon wrote the song on a Wurlitzer electric piano while playing additional bass guitar work. The characteristic "bark" of the Wurlitzer's bass notes plays a prominent role in the song. During live performances, the band used a grand piano rather than an electric, and it would be played by Freddie Mercury, while Deacon played the bass guitar just like in the original recording.
✨The music video, directed by Bruce Gowers, shows the band in a huge ballroom surrounded by over one thousand candles, including a huge chandelier hung from the ceiling. The video was filmed in April 1976 at Elstree Studios, London. Additionally, Deacon is seen playing a grand piano rather than the Wurlitzer he used on the recording.
✨Here's John & Freddie's comments on the song composition: .
"Well, Freddie didn't like the electric piano, so I took it home and I started to learn on the electric piano and basically that's the song that came out you know when I was learning to play piano. It was written on that instrument and it sounds best on that. You know, often on the instrument that you wrote the song on.”
“I refused to play the damn thing [the Wurlitzer]. It's tinny and horrible and I don't like them. Why play those things when you've got a lovely superb grand piano? No, I think, basically what he [John] is trying to say is it was the desired effect."
👉P.S. I love Freddie's hand position on that mic in the official video and in this version I absolutely love the way Freddie points his hand to the audience when he sings "you're my best friend" ❤😩🔥
