We already know how bad your taste in music (and facial hair) is, no need to prove it by making a thread about one of the weakest Queen songs ever (musicaly speaking).

There's a lot of nice people on this forum, but there's also a lot of mean morons like Penetration something on this site.

DTSH is one of Queen's best song. A great one. This song produces a lot of image in my mind. Everytime I listen to it, I imagine a waterfall or Freddie on top of a mountain. On the visual note, this song is very strong.

Don't Try So Hard has to be one of Queen's most splendid compositions. Musically speaking it was brilliant and to say it's not is utter trash. You could not like the song personally, but no one should ever make such false accusations without evidence or support to prove it.

I would also like to point out that the very meaning of the song is wonderful. Just say it to yourself, "don't try so hard." For some people, such as myself, we took that lyric very seriously and used it to relax ourselves in a way. Hell, even the sounds Queen made in that song were simply relaxing. In a word the song was quite 'exquisite.'

Yea imagine if they would have scrapped the video for headlong or slightly mad and done a video for Dont try so hard instead...

I bet it would have been a very successful single.

No doubt about it, but why not keep the Headlong and I'm Going Slightly Mad videos and 'add' Don't Try So Hard.

It's very odd, I couldn't stand it when I first heard it ... but I was 17. Maybe my tastes have evolved - maybe they'll evolve again and I'll wind up hating it....

Well anyway. I like it. Lots. Meh!

The best song to listen to before an interview, ...or playing golf, next to the LK version of Spread Your Wings.

they work half the time.....

yeah but its sad how he sings that and it follows up by some scary notes which makes me think that he means "what a beautiful world, this simeple life for me" and then "sorry you wont be here for long to enjoy it" and then the solo comes

You're mad. I'd like you to reach those notes with a cold, let alone what Freddie was going through. You must be tone deaf or purely ignorant if you find that song weak.

Everyone has an opinion and is entitled to state it. Personally, I'd like to know why he thinks it's weak (musically speaking). I happen to love the song, but I'm curious why others might not like it as I do. Like Body Language - I love that song but so many hate it. Isn't it interesting to know why opinions clash?

I think this is a great song, the only song i cant listen to all the way though is JESUS, it gets too repetitive for me, it was on the first album so i will let them off.


You fuckers can sing higher than i can, i tell you !!
