When Google decides to feature a special event with a Google Doodle there are many ways they can portray a famous figure, and none more so than the Freddie Mercury Google Doodle today that features a play button. When it comes to musical stars what better way to remember them than a song they sung?
Freddie Mercury was born 65 years ago today, and his birthday is being remembered with a Google Doodle that millions will see and a little less than that will press play. While we’re not sure if the song will change throughout the day, when we pressed play we had the pleasure to listen to “Don’t Stop Me Now”, which was one of his hits with Queen.
The Doodle will display loads of different animations with the Google logo in the background once you click play. Let us know if you heard any other song when you clicked play, and what you think about the Doodle featured on Google’s homepage. We’d also like to hear from fans of Freddie Mercury including memories that you have of this amazing singer, how did he impact your life over the years? Share in the comments below.
As always you can see all the Google Doodles from this year and many years before by going to google.com/logos. Later today we’ll also feature some apps that are both fun and help you remember the rock stars life, keep your eyes on our homepage for that article later today.
Bohemian Rhapsody could be seen as one of Queen’s best hits, although our favorites include “Bicycle Race”, and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”. Let us know your favorite Freddie Mercury/Queen song.
