Hello there everyone,

I have spent the last month putting together a music mix that everyone can enjoy when my friends come over. I am a huge Queen fan, however most of my friends dislike them. They frequently say either "They have some good songs", or one in particular says, "The only thing Queen did for the musical world was We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions". Clearly this is untrue, but each to their own. Anyway, I have one hundred songs on the list and save for the first ten and the last ten songs, they are all different artists. In the first ten however, I have been trying to come up with a Queen song that really works well for an intro to the mix. I have put in Headlong, WWRY/WATC, Fat Bottom Girls, Killer Queen, but I''m still not sure.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

M.H

i think you basically have to approaches that you can adopt...

1. give em some mashups that include queen in them - but also have some other mainstream artists in the mash...or
2. include a quick 10-minute queen megamix

that way...those who dislike em will get a "greatest hits" snippet - which will work easier

some mashups to look for:-

the "magic mashup" which includes queen "a kind of magic/pilot - magic, olivia newton john "magic" steve miller abracaddabra" etc and segue it into "queen vs madonna - a ray of magic" which can segue into....queen vs madonna - crazy littrle beautiful stranger...you could segue this into the beatles vs queen crazy litlle fool on the hill

ok...so that's just my ideas...see how you get on...
if you need any files mentioned above...or the queen magamix...just email mbrennan@blueyonder.co.uk - remember to say who you are

Well, the idea of that Queen mega mix does sound interseting, I have WWRY/WATC in the begining at the momement, and Under Pressure in the last ten, so adding a few more songs in to accompany those sounds great...

Thanks for the advice, and I'll have a think about that music mash up as well...
