Freddie Mercury: Yes, theyre all going into my white book. My black books quite full up actually. [Laughs]

 

Kenny Everett: He says with champagne bubbles coming out of both ears.

 

BENJAMIN BRITTON TRIBUTE

 

Kenny Everett: Well I suppose you could call that a golden oldie, as it was written in 1961. Lovely, I like classical stuff dont you?

 

Freddie Mercury: I like a bit of Chopin.

 

Kenny Everett: Im a Mozart man.

 

Freddie Mercury: Well there you are then, we differ.

 

ITS OVER, ROY ORBISON

 

Freddie Mercury: Its Over! [Freddie & co sing the last line].

 

Kenny Everett: The masked mouths of the Mercury entourage, and Its Over. Which was written in 1964 and is one of my faves Roy Orbison, who always did a good tune when called upon.

 

Freddie Mercury: Yes, very good actually. Pretty Woman was very good as well.

 

Kenny Everett: He did a lot of good stuff, I think hes fab. I tell you what, Roy was good but you cant beat old Dusty.

 

YOU DONT HAVE TO SAY YOU LOVE ME, DUSTY SPRINGFIELD

 

Kenny Everett: Round of applause for Dusty Springfield. Shes great, the only thing thats wrong with Dusty is that shes not in Britain today. Shes gone off to California the rotter.

 

Freddie Mercury: I wish shed come back actually. Shes very good, a very good singer.

 

Kenny Everett: I think shes a nana really, as shes sat over there and not producing some fab stuff.

 

Freddie Mercury: I dont know her, but I think shes a bit scared to go on. Shes scared of what people might think, especially in this country. I think if she did come back, shed be liked.

 

Kenny Everett: Shes be adored, theres millions of people here waiting for her to come back. Im not sure whats wrong with her.

 

Freddie Mercury: I think shes got stage fright, she needs a bit more encouragement and a bit more confidence.
