My sister and I both thought it was "Wall's sausages" when we first heard it back in the day (my sister was 10 and I was 13 then, and we both often misheard song lyrics in those days).
Hard to believe this single is already over 40 years old! In 1991, following Freddie Mercury's death, it became the first re-issue of a former Number One hit to return to Number One. Other re-issues (like David Bowie's "Space Oddity" and John Lennon's "Imagine", for example) have reached Number One on their second chart runs, but not on their first. Queen's achievement of getting to Number One twice with the same recording went unequalled for a decade, until George Harrison's death sent "My Sweet Lord" to Number One for a second time. However, Queen's classic sold over a million in the UK on both chart runs, which Harrison's didn't. As far as I know, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is still the only single to sell a million copies in the UK in each of two chart runs. And oh, how it deserves such success!
Play the Game It's not like Your Going to Live Forever. If I can afford one be Kind of Magic. Now I'm Here I might buy one but If You buy It for Me You're My Best Friend ever. I can see by Your Body Language Your not going to so Save Me please. Oh well Another one Bites the Dust cause It's a Hard Life. H.
Well Now I'm Here I may as well tell you that I won't be joining a Procession to buy one, but I tell you Some Day One Day when I'm Doing All Right, maybe then Dear Friends with a Flick Of The Wrist and I'm Stone Cold Crazy I may buy one of these.
Until then it's In The Lap Of The Gods, so I'll just lie here with my Sweet Lady (she's 39 and The Love Of My Life) and play my Modern Times Rock n Roll on my old turntable.
@AVQueen. You need one of these In Your life. Order now before they go. (Image can be Deleted). H.
Very limited edition Queen Rega turntable. Pre-orders now being taken
— July 21, 2015 by Crash
We will have a small quantity of the very limited edition Queen Rega turntable on sale in the shop. They have been specially commissioned by the band ahead of all their catalogue being reissued on vinyl later this year. Only 2,000 of these turntables are being manufactured for the world, 400 of which will be available in the UK. They will be on sale for £325 and are available as shop collection only. Full details of the turntable can be viewed by following this link. Customers wishing to pre-order can either pay in full online or call into the shop and pay a minimum £50 deposit. We would strongly suggest acting quickly if you want one of these turntables, as there is a very good chance all the stock we have been allocated will sell out well ahead of their release in September
Full Sheet Music added. I hope the mods, or anyone else, wont mind ... this is a classic. Please excuse my Piano Teachers marks. There was a time when I could play this through without looking at the music. I've done the front a little lighter and the manuscript darker or it'll be difficult to see. Enjoy! Notice the unusual inclusion of the 'B' side on this.
