Queen - 'The Show Must Go On'
...chosen by Scooter

I’m the biggest Queen fan – both the rock group and the royal family. I don’t know how good a singer Her Majesty is, but there was no one who could sing like Freddie Mercury of Queen. What an incredible talent! And Brian May and the other members of Queen!? Amazing! (I’m proud to say that I was partly responsible for our recording of 'The Muppets’ Bohemian Rhapsody'....not only did I suggest the song, but I ordered and served lunch during the video shoot.) This is a great song from their album Innuendo. It’s touching and emotional (“The show must go on / Inside my heart is breaking / My make-up may be flaking / But my smile still stays on). It makes you want to smile... and cry. I listen to it every day and... Oh gosh, I’m tearing up.....Gotta go.
