Sunday Session – Queen

Happy Sunday all! It’s that time of the week again where we all sit back and play a little music on our blogs thanks to Thea from Do I Really Wanna Blog? and her Sunday Session.

Today I am sharing my favourites hits from Queen, one of the biggest, boldest and most insanely talented bands of all time.

I was sitting up late last night, waiting to see the lunar eclipse (which was pretty impressive and well worth the long wait!) and my husband and I ended up watching the second part of a biopic on Queen screened on ABC2. It was awesome listening to some of their hits all over again and to understand everything that was going on behind the scenes while they produced hit after hit.

My husband in particular loves Queen and I remember taking him down to Star City back in 2005 to see the stage production We Will Rock You for a birthday surprise. The music being played live just gives it another dimension – it really is classic rock.

So here are my four favourite Queen hits…

Hoping you all enjoy a fantastic Sunday!

Spread the positivity!

  1. There is just no other band like Queen. So talented!

    • Kirsty says:

      Agreed. I was never into them when I was younger but I have come to appreciate just how talented they were in the melodies and the riffs and the harmonies they created. Fantastic songs!

    I’m a Queen fan from way back. I’ve shared some more obscure Queen tunes on Sunday Session a few months ago. I also love Killer Queen, Good Old Fashioned Loverboy and Don’t Stop Me Now.

    You and I could have been in the same auditorium at the same time! Hubby and I went to Star City to see Ben Elton’s We Will Rock You in 2005 too. I loved it and wish I could see it again. Small world.

    You really can’t go wrong with Queen can you? I love it!

    • Kirsty says:

      Tracy, I have come to appreciate Queen more and more as I get older. Never was into them in my younger days but i can truly appreciate their talent now – it was fun listening to these songs again!

    I never was a Queen fan, Freddie Mercury gave me the creeps, you know how some people just do?
    But I will not deny they were musical geniuses.
    Their music is amazing and I really enjoyed your Sunday Session today.
    Thank you!! 😀

      I totally get where you’re coming from Thea. I remember being terrified when I was small when the filmclip for Crazy Little Thing Called Love would come on and Freddy’s eyes would glow red in one of the scenes…creepy…and I could never get over his teeth either…

      However, I do love their songs and do think they were musical geniuses – watching the biopic the other night (and twitter!) kept me entertained while waiting for the eclipse to happen!

    I can’t say I’m a huge fan either (I think you either love or hate them) But Queen always reminds me of long drives with my brother – He was a mad fan and would play their albums on high rotation in the car anywhere and everywhere we ever went!
    Needless to say I go sick of them quickly and created my own lyrics to their songs hoping that I could annoy him enough to turn them off… it never worked 😛
    Fat bottom Girls and Bicycle along with Flash were some of the more obscure titles I had to endure.
    Your picks are some of the best and I’m sure anyone can appreciate the genius behind them.
    Happy Sunday (and sorry for my ramble down memory lane 😳 )

    • Kirsty says:

      Ah, I forgot Flash, I do like that one as well!

      You have to be into the whole theatrical thing to get them I think – I was never into them when I was younger but I do enjoy their music now. Although, I never had to endure long drives listening to them…

      I enjoyed your “ramble” down memory lane – I love hearing the stories behind people’s connections with songs, I think it makes their choices that much more interesting!

    LOve Queen we will rock you – my 18yrs at 5yrs was taught to sing this at preschool for the teacher who was leaving – was so funny.
    Trish recently posted..Thank you for the music

    • Kirsty says:

      Funny you should say that Trish – my daughter has come home from school this year singing it (well, mumbling the verses as she has no idea what the words are) but yelling out at the top of her lungs in the verses… Hilarious!

    […] and I’m going to have to play some Queen for you today. I’ve featured them on the blog before but thought I would choose some different songs for your enjoyment […]
