Weezer - Miss Sweeney (Weezer (The Red Album))
“I’m waiting until you love me…”
Queen - Great king rat (Queen)
Queen - Great King Rat
The Great King Rat was born and died today- the 21st of May
This started out as one of my least favorite Queen songs (something about “Great King Rat was a dirty old man / And a dirty old man was he” irritated me) but now it’s one of my favorites. All of Freddie’s compositions grow on me over time.

Françoise Hardy - Je N'Attends Plus Personne (The Vogue Years)
“Je N’Attends Plus Personne”—Françoise Hardy (1964)
Whenever I hear those first guitar riffs I think it’s going to be a hard rock song and not pretty Françoise.
Morrissey - I'm OK By Myself (Years Of Refusal)
Queen - We Are The Champions (Live At Wembley Stadium)
His voice at the 32-second mark… just unreal.
Queen - '39 (A Night At The Opera)
‘39 - A Night At The Opera - Queen - 1975
Fun fact: This song was written by Brian and was intended to be sci-fi themed. It was about a group of space explorers who embark on a one-year long voyage. Upon their return though, they realise that 100 years have passed and the loved ones they’ve left behind are now dead.
Bonus fun fact: When people heard it, they thought it was a song about the beginning of WWII and were surprised when Brian revealed to them the real story.
Bonus bonus fun fact: This was the 39th song that Queen has made.
I love this song for its heartbreaking lyrics even though Freddie doesn’t sing it on the album (but he does live!).
Don’t you hear my call?
Though you’re many years away
Don’t you hear me calling you?
Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew
Think of an early-nineties stoner frat boy. What music would he listen to?
This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
This is the result. And it makes me laugh every single time.
it just gets better and better
I finally know the explanation!!!!!
