  1. Morning!
    Love Radio Ga Ga. Probably my first memory of a song by Queen. Brilliant way to start.
    However…I’m going for not only one of my favourite Queen songs but one of my favourite songs in general.
    It’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgzGwKwLmgM

    I LOVE it. Trying to think of a more uplifting, feel good song…almost impossible.
    Also, it was basically the anthem of my University Drama Society, so a LOT of great (if foggy and Lambrusco laced) memories for me when I hear it.

  2. I probably only know the obvious (well, maybe a couple), but I’m not posting it either. πŸ™‚ I haven’t seen the movie, yet, but I will. I think we may have discussed the great interview with Rami Malek on Fresh Air–and that he got his start on The Gilmore Girls.

  3. Happy Saturday. We are on Queen. Hmmm…so many good ones here. I see much conversation on The One. (Don’t know where all this Matrix conversation came from, After all, Neo was The One.)

    I will go back to 1980……Ted Turner established CNN. Rubik’s Cube debuted. The Miracle on Ice occurred when the U.S. defeated the all powerful Russian hockey team. Post-Its was born. Mount Saint Helens errupted.

    And everytime my New York Yankees won another ball game . I would happily sing……
    Another One Bites The Dust. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY0WxgSXdEE

    Loved that song. Always have.

  4. Like Eartha Kitt, I want to be evil (Google it): There are still a few big hits that haven’t been brought up, and that isn’t including the obvious one! But thinking of the obvious one, something from “A Night at the Opera”. OK, I love that Queen was occasionally a Prog Rock band that didn’t sue synthesizers or a mellotron, and I love some of their Prog songs (after their prog days were over real fans were disappointed when the sticker that proudly proclaimed that no synthesizers were used was not to be found any place on the album “The Game”). Now here is their longest song, and it even includes a tape delay solo! Really. Starting at about 3:30, those odd vocal effects. Anyway, something that I know nobody else will post, The Prophet’s Song: https://youtu.be/HzdjMLKKdgk
    Enjoy πŸ˜‰

  5. Whoa…was not expecting so many Queen fans this morning! Growing up in small town, I only got the generally overplayed hits so wasn’t as familiar with Freddie’s catalog. After snooping around I was STUNNED at the breath of his career. What an amazing voice (not to mention showman). I’m gonna go with something different and offer How Can I Go On from Barcelona with Montserrat CaballΓ©. It gave me goose bumps. Happy weekend https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIKZhtsbs3I

  6. Hi Dale, Hi Frank, Hi Concert Attendees! I’ve got to stop having a social life on a Saturday night I’m missing all the fun and by the time I got through all the songs banned and acceptable – I’m all Queened out. I do rather think the best of his voice was made when he sang with Caballe – and yes I know that isn’t strictly Queen.

  7. Looks like I came to the party too late to claim “Another One Bites The Dust” which, by the way, toward the end of my band directing career was unofficially banned as a high school pep band choice to play when the opposing team was down by more than 20 points. That said, I’m happy to offer “Bicycle Race” which I like mainly for the density and the mixing genius behind the recording tracks. The song itself is said to be a β€œthrilling ride” with references to cocaine, Star Wars, Watergate and John Wayne, and a solo played on bicycle bells. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GugsCdLHm-Q

    • A song overused in so many occasions. None the less a good song. It’s one of those rare times that a no1 hit deserves to be there! πŸ˜‰ Although I appreciate them, especially their first albums and of course FM amazing voice, I’ve never been a great fan of their music.

  8. Sigh. There was a final song (Yahooey). I had tickets to the concert, but alack and alas, they will now be nothing more than unused souvenirs. Family matters got in the way of my attending. However, not one to be thwarted when it comes to Queen, I have a song that simply must be added. All of my exposure to Queen has been through their mainstream songs, but my husband is a Queen aficionado, and one of his favorites is Fun It. The song was written by their drummer, Roger Taylor, and predates Another One Bites the Dust while having a bit of the same beat and disco sound. I’ll try to be on time for Neil Diamond. I saw him in concert in Cleveland way back in the 70’s. πŸ™‚ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxPQF4K5ocg
