Hear Brett Eldredge’s Cover of Queen’s ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’
Brett Eldredge cut a cover of Queen's "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" for a new Peloton fitness commercial, but the full thing was too good not to share.
The song was written by Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in 1979, and Eldredge dedicated his cover of the track to the late singer in a heartfelt Twitter post.
"We lost Freddie Mercury 27 years ago today but his music still lives on," he captions the clip in a post on Nov. 24 that shows him singing it to his dog, Edgar. "No one can do this song like him."
Mercury was highly respected as the animated and colorful frontman of Queen. The British rock band are best known for hits like "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Killer Queen," "Somebody to Love," "Don't Stop Me Now," and "We Are the Champions." Mercury died of pneumonia in 1991, after a long battle with AIDS.
Eldredge is gearing up for a holiday tour in support of the deluxe version of his 2016 Christmas album, Glow. His Glow Live shows will be held in Canada, Chicago, New York and Nashville. He'll also be performing as part of the Christmas in Rockefeller Center television special on Nov. 28, joining Martina McBride and Kellie Pickler (who will be performing with vocal group Pentatonix). Additional acts include Diana Ross, Tony Bennett, Diana Krall and John Legend.
