Freddie Mercury (Born Farrokh Bulsara, gujarati ફારોખ બલ્સારા‌) was a singer and songwriter from 1964 to 1991. In 1970, he formed the rock band Queen with Brian May and Roger Taylor, and the group would later hire John Deacon.

Mercury wrote several of Queen's most popular songs including Don't Stop Me Now and Bohemian Rhapsody. Some of his lesser-known songs found popularity in video games like Vultan's Theme.

Mercury died at the age of 45 due to bronchial pneumonia brought on by AIDS, but his music remains very popular.


Only include the songs that he composed with Queen or solo. For example, A Kind of Magic, One Vision and Hammer to Fall are Queen songs, but the first and the second were written by Roger Taylor, and the third by Brian May, so they shouldn't be included here.

As Mercury is not a video game music composer, his gameography is in alphabetical order.
