'Dragon Attack' - awesome song. I play the drum solo with my fingers at work when I need a little pick-me-up.

'Bohemian Rhapsody' - sheer ridiculousness that somehow rocks

'Don't Try Suicide' - nasty little singalong

'Flash Gordon Theme' - inspired Public Enemy

Oh so many good songs.

When I was little I had that 'We Will Rock You' b/w 'We are the Champions' 7" single as it seems everyone I knew did thanks to WLS music radio 89. I did LOVE that Flash Gordon movie when it came out as well. I was the perfect age for it I guess. When I went from Kiss to Beatle worship in forth grade, Queen somehow got left out.

Now spin the clock to 6 years ago. I was visiting my inlaws for the holidays and they have cable. One night I stayed up all night watching the behind the music/ legends series on VH1 starting with Zeppelin (which is what hooked me originally) at 1 am, then Queen followed, then the BeeGees! It was three of the most amazing hours of TV I have ever watched.

How do people with cable get anything done?!

If you listen to the Flash Gordon sound track again, some bits aren't a million miles away from Trans Am.

Well I laughed?

Queen were a fine rock band and NOT CRAP at all. I do hate "Radio Ga Ga," though. This is a terrible song.

I'm sure I said this in another thread, and I'll say it again: Queen II is one of the instances where I can enjoy an album in spite of all the fantastical wizard-and-goblin lyrics.

I'm sure the only other band I can ignore this sort of thing in is T. Rex (though not Tyrannosaurus Rex).

Highlights:
    Blood Brothers
    Glass Candy
    Melt Banana
And of, course, Weasel Walter doing a solo, multitracked rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody"

I think you'll like it.

Stuck in rush-hour traffic in Terre Haute yesterday, barely halfway through a seven-hour drive back to Kentucky from Chicago, "Somebody to Love" came on the radio. Despite the fact that I was exhausted and a little depressed, by song's end I was filled with that kind of grandiose euphoria that is pretty much unique to Queen's music. I drove on, a much happier man, recalling having stayed up until midnight--on a school night!--to tape A Day at the Races off of LRS 102, onto a blank 8-track, a week before its official release.

Absurd? Sure. Overwrought? Undoubtedly. But definitely NOT CRAP.

Even the shitty songs sang by the drummer are passable. Laughable, no doubt, but somehow passable as well.

The song "Mustafa" always gets me. Strange and respectable production job too.

What's also weird is that Brian May's voice sounds eerily like Freddie's when he's singing softly (see "All Dead All Dead").

I've always dug how Freddie's facial "oddities" never seemed to slow him down.

Not crap. No waffles except for the '80s stuff.

My favourite album cover as a kid was News of the World, with that big sentinel on it. I used to look and look at it. So strange and eerie. And Queen, all dead.

And Spread Your Wings is on it. Wonderful.

Not crap, largely for Sheer Heart Attack (1974, I think), and particularly "Brighton Rock": this song has it ALL, I tell you. 5:09 of insane flair and bizarre whimsy and epic fucking grandeur. Queen's finest moment? Certainly Brian May's. Exquisitely aged 70s hard rock of the highest quality.

OH ROCK OF AGES
DO NOT CRUMBLE
LOVE IS BREATHING STILL!

OH LADY MOON SHINE DOWN
A LITTLE PEOPLE MAGIC IF YOU WILL!

Its greatness covers a multitude of sins -- in Queen's case, a vast multitude. Say what you will about Queen, but to be against this song is to be against life.

edit: Melt-Banana's "We Will Rock You": also not crap.
