NEIN DANKE
*****
Ausdrucksstarke Pop-Ballade; für Queen-Verhältnisse etwas blasser Song; trotzdem gut!
*****
Schöner Ballade aus Januar 1996, und es war Hit nummer 40 !!! in Holland, nur einer 25ste stelle in Hitparade vor 3 Wochen.
*****
gut
******
Eine zärtliche Ballade mit nachdenklichem Charakter, der perfekte Abschluss des Albums "Made In Heaven".
******
A very good Winter-ballad.
******
perfekt für winterabende zu zweit ;)
*****
eines meiner liebsten weihnachtslieder, auch wenns dabei garnicht direkt um weihnachten geht.
*****
Hm, vielleicht würde ich dem im Hochsommer eine andere Note geben, aber so direkt nach Weihnachten gefällt mir das schon sehr gut. Hatte ich damals irgendwie nicht ganz mitbekommen.
****
▓ Een ø Kerstplaat van "Queen" uit december 1995 !!! Kwam pas in januari 1996 in de Hollandse hitparade's terrecht !!! Ja, da's veel te laat !!! Nog net 4 sterren !!! ( NL Top 40: 3 wk / # 25) !!!

So ne schöne Melodie, auch wenn Freddie sie ab und zu ein wenig überschreit...
****
in GB #6, 5 jahre nach seinem tod...
*****
sehr gut
*****
...sehr gut...

Diese winterliche Ballade strotzt nochmals so richtig vor Melancholie, was durch die gezielte Instrumentierung mit der heulenden Gitarre noch verstärkt wird. Fantastisches Dokument aus Freddies letzten Tagen.

Wenn ich in Montreux bin, ruehrt mich dieses Lied zu Traenen. Wunderschoen !!!

******
Wirklich ausserordentlich berührend!
****
gefällt mir eigentlich nicht wirklich
****
Schöner Song Rausschmeisser im 3/4-Takt.
*****
Schöner Song,zum relaxen und einfach nur hinhören.
****
Okay, aber nichts, was mich in Ehrfurcht erstarren ließe.
*****
erinnerungsbonus...
******
Sehr schöne Queen-Ballade. War, soviel ich weiss, der letzte Song aus Freddies Feder. Schöne Kaminfeuer-Romantik in kalten Winternächten. Man hört an Freddies Stimme stellenweise, dass er zu diesem Zeitpunkt bereits sehr schwach war.

Schön, mit starken Anklängen an das Innuendo-Album.

Ich warte minutenlang, dass das Lied losgeht

und ich bis es aufhört

In 1991 toen Freddie Mercury aan het verzwakken was, brachten de leden van Queen nog zoveel mogelijk tijd in de studio door om nog opnamen te maken voor een eventueel nog te verschijnen album. De opnamen werden niet eens afgemixed omdat men wist dat alle tijd die daaraan besteed werd zou betekenen dat Freddie geen nummers kon opnemen.
Pas in 1995 achtten de 3 overgebleven leden van Queen de tijd rijp om een album uit te brengen waarin de stem van de inmiddels overleden Freddie te horen was. Gelukkig pikte het publiek dit goed op, want "Made in heaven" was een enorm succes. Het was het laatste nr 1-album voor Queen. Deze 2e single uit december 1995" gaat een beetje de kitcherige kant op, maar toch nog 4 sterren.
****
Buena.
***
Peaked at #71 in Australia, 1996.
***
... leider immer versehentlich auf diversen Weihnachtssamplern gelistet ... nur ein bisserl "Winter" im Text macht noch keinen Weihnachtssong aus ... selbst als "sonstige Ballade" geht's gerade noch so ...
***
hier gefällt mir Freddies Stimme nicht....

Eine ordentliche Geschichte.

I like......................................
****
lieblich-kuschelige Ballade – passt stimmungsmässig natürlich klar besser in den Dezember als in den April – 3.75...
***
das ist nur Ø
******
Schön!
****
... gut ...
****
... das schrille Geschrei passt wirklich nicht so richtig zu einer ansonsten guten Ballade ...
****
da hast du recht
***
Recht langweiliger Song.
****
Guter Durchschnitt auf "Made In Heaven".
*****
sehr schön gemacht
*****
Freddies letzter Song, der aus seiner Feder stammt.
Vielleicht harmonisch nicht gerade top, gesanglich (immer unter dem Gesichtspunkt seiner Krankheit) stark wie immer!
****
na ja, passt nicht zu Queen
****
Decent Christmas song :)
***
Das klingt so nach "Weihnachten im Phantasialand" und ist allenfalls dort mit Glühwein, Feuerzeug und jemandem zum Kuscheln erträglich.
*****
Mooi winternummer.
***

...weniger...
****
Hübsche, ruhige Ballade - ganz inbrüstig dargeboten.
*****
Eigentlich schon ein schöner Song, aber "Heaven for everyone" und "You don't fool me" haben mir etwas besser gefallen! Ach was solls, ich gebe trotzdem eine knappe 5!

War Ende Dezember 1995 eine #23 in Irland!
***
Geht so.
