365 Days of the Unoriginal, Day 76: God Save Queen

I love Queen. I just do. It’s sort of impossible stuff to cover, though. I can neither sing nor play well enough to sell any of my favorites convincingly. Still, I’ve always wanted to try, so I shuffled through my collection and found at least one that I could sort of manage: “Somebody to Love.” It’s been covered in some decent ways, and some goofy ones (I admit having a soft spot for this one, for no good musical reason).

I ended up going simple — just me and the ol’ guitar. Unfortunately, the video I filmed of myself playing just didn’t work — the sound was impossible to sync, for reasons entirely unknown to me, and I didn’t have the patience to figure out how to fix it, so you get bottles instead. Yay!

Ok, then.


About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15 years or so), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've just finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. For now, I labor at a fairly interesting administrative job in order to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
