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:

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

Well, then substitute Moody Blues for Iron Butterfly---but in order for you to have a truly full life you must google In a Gadda Da Vida and listen to the full 17 min. of it.  Pure pleasure!!
(Or how about another one you have never heard of--The Ventures)

Moody Blues, anything - Great
Iron Butterfly, Inna Gadda Da Vita, great (they sing)?
Ventures - My favorite music...

Simon&Garfunkle - Lyrics to love
Mamas&Paoas - Harmonics
Gary Puckett - Voice

Can't quibble with any of that!  And a few more goodies.........little known, We Five (You were on my mind--and they have been on my mind ever since),  Stephenwolf --all of them, and Pete Fountain for a change of pace.

Thank you for Pete Fountain.  I had to look him up and was impressed.  Clarinet-Dude!
