Well, I was stuck for Q songs that fit my theme for the 2012 A to Z Blogging Challenge, which was le major suck (this is not actual French). I put out an S.O.S. to my peeps and they answered the call, bless them. My Dear Friend Katy O suggested Queen and I smacked myself on the forehead for not having thought of them already. So today's post of three will be an all Queen revue!
Crazy Little Thing Called Love: For a long time I thought this was a cover, which made sense after I learned that Freddie Mercury wrote this as an hommage to Elvis Presley. (That is actual French.) Though it was a departure from their usual stuff, the world went crazy for it, and so, I must confess, did I. C'est adorable! (Also actual French.)
Get Down Make Love: My Dear Friend Robin suggested this song and thank goodness she did, as I'd never heard it before! (Woof!) Also was intrigued to learn that Nine Inch Nails covered it!
You Take My Breath Away: I came across this tune, another I hadn't heard, in my investigation of Queen tuneage for this post. Dudes. This really did take my breath away. You da man, Freddie - I hope I can someday do an hommage to you that's worthy of your eternal greatness. I can't believe you've been gone for over twenty years. May God hold you close.
