Mika: Grace Kelly (2007)
Yes, yes, Mika doesn’t like the comparisons to Queen. Perhaps if you sang fewer lyrics like “I tried a little Freddy” and used your clear falsetto less. Anyway, the video is fun in a goofy kind of way, though I don’t know what’s up with the women bringing over cakes.
McFly: Transylvania (2007)Aah! Scary floating Queen-like heads! Actually, come to think of it, aping silent films will give you the chance for the kind of histrionic over-acting that goes well with the Queen vibe. My main complaint is that the video uses some of the tropes of silent films — dialogue cards, women tied to train tracks, flickering light — but then undermines the conceit by showing the band singing.
And for all of you wondering: day three. Still not a new dad.
