Silly Moustache have you ever considered writing about your experience?

It would make a great read.

You could call it 'Rubbing Shoulders'.

This is EXACTLY what I think and feel.

I think we should simply enjoy the fact that a song from the 70’s showed up in the billboard in 3 different decades. Considering the absolute crap that’s on the billboard top 100, this tells me that people still appreciate great music. It’s the music industry what’s keeping great new music from reaching the masses.

They totally stole that show.
Quite a few folks agree with you.

That barely faded when Wayne's World brought it back. Again.

So me and the wife went to see the movie when it came out last month. Don't know why. It wasn't that good, I knew most of that stuff from osmosis. Casting was pretty good. Gear placement was pretty well done, Brian had a hand in that. And now it's in rotation. Again...

It came on the radio Friday night when me and the wife were driving home from an event. I immediately pushed the Bluetooth and changed it. She simply looked at me like she understood.

I'm "Queened Out".....
That's the staying power. I don't know many fans of The Beatles that were there, that are now Burned out on them.

El Paso recorded in 1959, was 4:38 long, and Les Paul used Multi Tacking in 1955.

"Killer Queen" was the first Queen song to make airplay in my hometown. I dug it on several accounts, the phasing, the lyrics, guitars ... it was unique, as was Queen. I knew right away that I'd be hearing more of them. BR, on the other hand, meh. Well received, to be sure, but I thought it a mash up at best and the lyrical content I couldn't get behind. To me it's like many other works that artists may be best known for, but really aren't their best. They have so many other, better tunes.

I'm surprised by all the dislike of BH.

I may not be the biggest fan, but I enjoy hearing it from time to time.

Anyway, that is why baskin robbins makes 57 flavors.

I like french vanilla, doesn't bother me in the slightest that other people can't stand it.

I never liked Queen at all. Neither did I like Neil Young, Anne Murray or Gordon Lightfoot. They were all examples of over promoted acts with some historical caption beside their career. But I digress...

Queen bores me, entirely. Its cabaret with amplifiers.

Interesting. One of the most talented bands of all time that performed some of the most creative music of all time. I'm glad they made a great movie about a great band with great music.

Nah, Silly Moustache is far more famous than those other cats. They should write about him.

Count me in as a 'still like it.'

My 5 year old heard it for the first time this summer. He said "those were 3 great songs, daddy!"

You could’ve told her: “welcome to progressive rock sweetheart”. [emoji23]

BH spent 9 weeks at number 1 in the UK singles chart.

It is often voted the UK's favourite single in various rock/pop polls.

I like Queen but I'm not a fanboy, I still think that Freddie was the best front man ever.
