Writer's Block: Killer Queen  
What's your favorite Queen song, and why?

Almost impossible to choose. I could say Radio Gaga because I think that was the first Queen song I remember hearing. Then the Highlander fan in me wants to say Princes of the Universe or Who Wants to Live Forever or A Kind of Magic.

Actually that entire album is the greatest soundtrack ever because it works as a great album totally separate from the movie, but when you start referencing in the film the lyrics take on a whole extra level of meaning.

And now thanks to Shaun of the Dead I love Don't Stop Me Now.

So.... um.... I refuse to choose, they're all great!

Happy Birthday Freddy, you are irreplaceable and much missed.

I agree with you it's so hard to choose just one Queen song. And I do agree with you about the A Kind of Magic album. It's so fantastic. I had the US re-release version of this CD when I first went to college and played it quite a bit. Then when I went to Spain I found the European edition with a few more bonus tracks, suffice it to say I bought the CD and enjoyed it. Also what was cool was at that time they were celebrating the release of the platinum greatest hits album and all the classic rock stations were doing retrospectives on Queen. Plus quite a few of the students that I was studying with at the University from a few other countries along with Spain were Queen fans so it was great to have a little more to talk about than the classes that we were taking!

Ah yes, a Kind of Magic - I adore it. I have the album (proper vinyl at that) in my loft somewhere (same with A Night at the Opera).

I have a special fondness for One Year of Love off A Kind of Magic as it was responsible for my first Paris/Kim fic, though I love all the songs you mentioned (not to forget Gimme the Prize).

love your choices!

For me, it's Princes of the Universe and The Show Must Go On.
