So, with just a week to go before Alfie Boe’s Arena tour starts in Newcastle, the number one song in the Alfie Boe Best Ever Live Song poll is:
A powerhouse performance by Alfie at Gary Barlow’s 2013 New Year TV show – and a complete surprise to us all! Imagine my annoyance when I missed it and woke up to a zillion messages on my phone and on twitter!!!!!
As we know, Freddie Mercury and Queen were a big influence on Alfie and this song is from the 1978 Queen album, Jazz. Mercury wrote both music and lyrics and is based around the piano; guitar being only a small part of the recorded version. Here is the Queen version:
To recap the top 5:
Rank Strangers – Storyteller tour
You are my heart’s delight – Blackpool
Buona Sera – Belfast Proms
Jacobs Ladder / Barcelona (Laura Wright version)
