No matter how many years pass, we will never tire of Queen and the greatness of Freddie Mercury. Hell, we lose our minds when a sped up version of “We Will Rock You” — which was actually available on their live album Live Killers, released in 1979 — hits the ears of the masses for the first time. But what if the The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll got her distinctive pipes on a Queen classic like “Don’t Stop Me Now”?
Well, to be clear, Tina Turner — to our knowledge — has not performed or recorded a version of “Don’t Stop Me Now” (but we will send that idea into the world and hope it is realized), but we get very close to it with Melinda Doolittle and Postmodern Jukebox. Doolittle is an alum of season six of American Idol and, during her time there, was compared to a young Turner by Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson.
Now that Doolittle has that confidence she lacked during her Idol audition, we think this version of “Don’t Stop Me Now” is very Turner-esque.
