    I guess I don't have the storied history that most of you have with the band. I think my first exposure was when the lads from Wayne's World head-banged to Bohemian Rhapsody. Is this the only case of a 70s song charting again in the 90s?

    Later I saw Highlander and enjoyed the soundtrack. I tracked down the Queen album "A Kind of Magic" which was the unofficial soundtrack and enjoyed it a lot. Then I found Queen's Greatest Hits (on cassette) amd wore those out.

    It must have been later still that I remebered their involvement in Flash Gordon and listened to that again. Side note: the wedding march that Queen played for this movie was the one that I used at my wedding years later!


Sure sounds like a storied history to me! What's next - Roger Taylor crashed your bachelor party?

    One of my favorite moments is when Freddy Mercury is scatting and the audience is repeating him at Wembley Stadium. I've only seen it on YouTube. Really a musician in command of his instrument (his voice).

    When I heard Don't Stop Me Now in Shaun of the Dead I realized there were still more Queen songs out there that I haven't discovered yet.
