Barceloooonaaaa!

Mercury & Caballe: Barceloooonaaaa!Forever in search of noteworthy and odd things related to my current city Barcelona, I recently heard Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe with their memorable song “Barcelona” for the first time since years (I dare say: decades!). This song was performed during the ceremonies for the Olympic Games when they came to the city in 1992.

By the way, how many of you knew that Freddie Mercury was actually an Indian parcy originally named Farrokh Bulsara, who spent much of his childhood in Panchgani, India?

    Freddie sadly died in November 1991 so could not actually sing at the games :(
    I believe that a recording was played.
