April 19: Queen reads your “Body Language” and George Michael seeks “Someone To Love”

Body_Language_1982: “Body Language” (printed as “Body Language ↑⬱”) is a dance/funk song by British rock band Queen. It was written by the band’s lead singer Freddie Mercury and was a hit in North America, where it received extensive radio play. However, the single only received a lukewarm response in the United Kingdom, only getting to No 25. The track was the second single released from their 1982 album Hot Space.

1993: Five Live is an EP featuring five tracks, performed by George Michael, Queen, andFive_Live_(Cover) Lisa Stansfield. “Somebody to Love” and “These Are the Days of Our Lives” (both also available on video) were recorded at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert, held on 20 April 1992, at Wembley Stadium.

All proceeds from the sale of the EP benefited the Mercury Phoenix Trust. Sales of the record were very strong throughout Europe, where it debuted at No 1 on the UK Singles Chart.  It sold an estimated 5 million copies worldwide and went Gold in the UK.

While “These Are the Days of Our Lives” is played by the remaining members of Queen, it is actually a duet between George Michael and Lisa Stansfield.
