I wasn't even searching for Queen or Freddie Mercury today, but this came up just the same. There is talented, super-talented ... and far above all that, there is gifted. I personally define gifted as being born with an extreme and uncanny ability that comes from one's soul.
Had I been searching, I probably would have picked a different song, but you get no argument from me on this one.
Freddie Mercury was absolutely gifted. He is one of music's greatest losses, for he took too much of his legacy with him.
Just my opinion...
