[Disclaimer: I am not a musician. I can sing. I remember most of the recital piece I played on the piano when I was 6. But I’m not a musician. I know what I like and what I don’t like and what will likely be the soundtrack when I arrive in hell.]

q | queen

Of course it’s Queen. Had you thought of anyone else? I did think of a couple… but they suck. I do legitimately love a few Queen songs. I should think everyone does. Even my kids do. But I think you know I’m writing about Queen because… well, it’s frickin’ Q.

Maybe this is cheating, but my favorite Queen song is actually the Queen/David Bowie one… Under Pressure. Yeah, I also like Bohemian Rhapsody, Somebody to Love, We Are the Champions... They’re fun to sing. You know, at the top of my lungs in the car alone with the windows open… but Queen and David Bowie? Brilliant.

‘Cause love’s such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way
Of caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves under pressure
Under pressure

other q artists worth a listen
Yeah right.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  2. Freddy Mercury was beyond talented, with nearly unequaled range. I can’t hear Bohemian Rhapsody without thinking of Wayne’s World though. 😃

    What?!? You don’t like Queens of the Stone Age? My poor hear is breaking for Dave Grohl.
    Good thing I really enjoy Queen 🙂 I always find myself singing along, and anyone that doesnt join in on Bohemian Rhapsody is not allowed to be my friend.

    We used to listen to the radio at work and my boss was not a fan of Queen, so of course we would always make requests in his name, hehe. I do enjoy a bit of Queen.

    It couldn’t be anyone else but Queen – they are beyond brilliant. Love so many of their songs but my favourite is the show must go on and who wants to live forever.
