I followed music much more closely back in the day.  Liked (and still do) A Taste of Honey.  I went through a Mancini type phase--liked him (Baby Elephant Walk--Days of Wine and Roses) and even more 'like' to a guy named Hugo Winterhalter--orchestra instrumentals.

I wasn't very familiar with Queen before I bought "A Night at the Opera" in a record store near Shinjuku Station in 1976.  I liked most of the songs on that album, and was thoroughly impressed with the creative versatility and talent of the band, and, of course, with Freddy's voice.  I still have that record, and although I purchased the album on CD some years later, I still like to spin the vinyl version now and then.  I wish that Freddy was still with us today.

Like most bands of the era, I think Queen reaches almost unholy levels of being overhyped. That said, Mercury's voice was really good, and that's not a statement of them being bad... just not god-tier like nostalgia makes them out to be. All power to people who like that sound though.

There are times when all I want is a smooth professional instrumental sound...  Herb Alpert, Ventures, etc.

My fav Queen song (We Are The Champions)--at least as it was used in the movie, A Knight's Tale.  :)
Yeah, it was OK in there, and I really enjoyed the movie. Whomever it was that played the arrogant French guy was very well cast, I thought.

It had interesting moments of modern pop and Medieval (the dance).  Here is the real thing:



From Knight's Tale ... historical to funky ...

Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' suits my love of love complicated pieces.  Loved Alice Cooper and Led Zepplin for the same reason.
