Freddie Mercury – Legacy
As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and powerful vocals over a four-octave range.
As a songwriter, Mercury composed many hits for Queen, including “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Killer Queen”, “Somebody to Love”, “Don’t Stop Me Now”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “We Are the Champions”.
One of the greatest rock performances in history – it’s considered maybe the greatest – for some reasons our producers [Brian May and Roger Taylor] thought it would be a good idea to start with that [the performance of Freddie Mercury and Queen at Live Aid] on day one.
They must have a reason for doing this because if halfway through this and we suck, they’ll just pull the plug on the whole productions, pack it up, and go home.
Save 60 million dollars.
When I got the call sheet for day two, it was like winning an Oscar.

“Things Have Changed” – Movie
The “Wonder Boys” is a 2000 comedy-drama film directed by Curtis Hanson. Hanson had been a fan of Bob Dylan’s music since childhood and a great admirer of his soundtrack for Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.
Bob Dylan admired Hanson’s previous film, L.A. Confidential and after much convincing, screened 90 minutes of rough footage from the Wonder Boys. Hanson picked Dylan because, as he said, “[w]ho knows more about being a Wonder Boy and the trap it can be, about the expectations and the fear of repeating yourself?”
Bob Dylan wrote and performed “Things Have Changed” Dylan and released it as a single on May 1, 2000.
“Things Have Changed” won the Academy Award and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.
The director of Wonder Boys, Curtis Hanson, also directed the music video for “Things Have Changed”, using new footage of Dylan and editing it with sequences from Wonder Boys to suggest that Dylan was appearing in the film.

“I Can’t Trace Time” – David Bowie
Oh, yeah Mmm
Still don’t know what I was waitin’ for And my time was runnin’ wild A million dead end streets and Every time I thought I’d got it made It seemed the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me But I’ve never caught a glimpse How the others must see the faker I’m much too fast to take that test
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes Turn and face the strange Ch-ch-changes Don’t want to be a richer man Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes Turn and face the strange Ch-ch-changes There’s gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me But I can’t trace time
I watch the ripples change their size But never leave the stream Of warm impermanence And so the days float through my eyes But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on As they try to change their worlds Are immune to your consultations They’re quite aware of what they’re goin’ through
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes Turn and face the strange Ch-ch-changes Don’t tell them to grow up and out of it Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes Turn and face the strange Ch-ch-changes Where’s your shame? You’ve left us up to our necks in it
Time may change me But you can’t trace time
Strange fascinations fascinate me Ah, changes are takin’ The pace I’m goin’ through
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes Turn and face the strange Ch-ch-changes Ooh, look out you rock ‘n’ rollers Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes Turn and face the strange Ch-ch-changes Pretty soon now you’re gonna get older
Time may change me But I can’t trace time I said that time may change me But I can’t trace time
