Fucking Queen!!!

We will
We will
We will
Rock you!!! 
(They did this song on Glee last week)




When I was in high school at every football game our school won, "We Are The Champions" would be played, as the team walked off the field. While this is not their best song. This song has this very special place in my heart. It brings to mind happy memories and childhood friends.

 Also I am sucker for these kinds of songs.

I FUCKING love QUEEN!

Queen is theatrical.

Queen is different. 

Queen can fun, light, whimsical, and they can be deep, dark, and heartfelt.

 Freddie Mercury, was well, Freddie Mercury. Such a talented man. And look at him (in the late 70's early 80's), he was some serious eye candy.

In 2004 -2005 (I think, those years seem like a blur) the hubby and I went to watch Queen+Paul Rodgers (of Bad Religion) and it was an awesome show. I remember wondering if they would attempt to do Bohemian Rhapsody, they couldn't, could they? It really had been a great show. But I was torn with wanting to hear one of my favorite Queen songs and feeling it would be sac religious.

They did play it, but a  large screen with Freddie came down on the stage and the band (May and Taylor) played while Freddie sang and played the piano. It was perfect.

    1. It is an awesome memory, but don't be too jealous. After all, I didn't get to see Freddie in action ;)

  5. As many of us kids that could legally fit into the back of the station wagon, rocking out to Queen with Dad as he drove and cranked it up. Love it! Thanks for jogging the memory!

  6. I love Queen! They just did Queen at my daughter's Gymboree music class so she's been yelling "We will! We will! Rock you!" around the house and my husband taught her throw a rock sign.

    As a side note, she's also walking around saying "I'm funky funky David Bowie" and "Breakfast to breakfast, funk to funky." (We're now thinking of the three David Bowies from "Flight of the Conchords" as a family Halloween costume.)

    She's not quite 3.

    2. If you play the music, they will sing it! She gets plenty of nursery rhymes at school. We listen to rock at home.
