Seaside Rendezvous (2:14)

Cover of A Night at the Opera

From A Night at the Opera and 4 other releases

Seaside Rendezvous”, written by Mercury, is probably best known for the “musical” bridge section which begins at around 0:51 into the song. The section is performed entirely by Mercury and Taylor using their voices alone. Mercury imitates woodwind instruments including a clarinet and Taylor mostly brass instruments, including tubas and trumpets, and even a kazoo. The tap dance segment is also “performed” by Mercury and Taylor on the mixing desk with thimbles on their fingers. Mercury plays both grand piano and jangle honky-tonk.

Freddie Mercury - lead and backing vocals, piano, jangle piano, vocal orchestration of woodwinds
John Deacon - bass guitar
Roger Taylor - drums, triangle, vocal orchestration of brass
