*Tribute To *Freddie Mercury* (5 September 1946 - 24 November 1991)

*Real Awesome* The original song recorded by *The Platters*. The song was repopularized in 1987 by *Freddie Mercury* the lead singer of the rock band *Queen*. In one of his last videotaped interviews in spring of 1987, *Mercury* explained that the song was particularly fitting for the way he saw his career and being on stage.

*Mercury's* music video for the song featured him parodying himself in many of his *Queen* guises through video medium over the years, including visual re-takes of *Radio Ga Ga*, *Crazy Little Thing Called Love*, *It's a Hard Life*, *I Want to Break Free*, *Bohemian Rhapsody*, *One Vision* and *I Was Born to Love You*. It was directed by *David Mallet* in February 1987, and also featured fellow *Queen* member *Roger Taylor* and actor *Peter Straker* in drag. The video was also notable for *Mercury* having shaved off his trademark moustache, which he had sported for much of the 1980s.

Wit Studio's original anime television series *Great Pretender* uses this version as its ending theme.

*Oh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Pretending I'm doing well (ooh ooh)
My need is such I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell
Oh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Adrift in a world of my own (ooh ooh)
I play the game but to my real shame
You've left me to dream all alone
Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal
Ooh ooh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what I'm not (you see)
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around
Yeah ooh hoo
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal
Oh yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what I'm not you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're
Pretending that you're still around*
