I remember when I was 5 years old.. I used to wear black pants and pick my mom's red scarf to put it all around my topless chest and start clapping my hands to look like Freddie in "Radio Gaga" video clip. no one at home could understand what I was doing, until someday my mom watched the video on tv by accident and called everybody to say: " Hey look.. this Singer is dressing just like youssef! :D#2 @ro_thefan

1991-1992. I was 11 and in India. I hadn't heard of Queen but probably heard "We will Rock You" and "Crazy Little thing called Love". India had just started an all English Radio station that hosted the Top 20 hits Sunday morning. I used to hurry home from church so that I could tape stuff off the radio. Freddie's death had brought back Bohemian Rapsody to the top 20. I kept missing out on Bohemian Raphsody and recording it in parts, I thought it was different songs. Then one day I heard it whole and I was whoahhh its the same song!#9 @Chastangela
Meeting one of my bestfriends in high school. Our love of Queen & Freddie was what brought us together. #freddiemercurymemories#10 @DarthIcarus
