Quote: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?
Quote: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.
Quote: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?
Quote: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).
Quote: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.
