I had long heard about famous Q and several songs of theirs, such as "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions". But, honestly speaking, I had failed to develop a personal interest in them, I mean, I had taken their songs to be as much common as other songs. It was not until two weeks ago that I watched one episode of "American Idol" on which one male contestant chose "Killer Queen" as his piece. I instantly fell into love with the light but strong melody. I began to search on the net for more of their hits, and came across songs like "Bicycle Race" and "Bohemian Rhapsody", which I liked so much. And I realised I just acquired a taste for Q.
I do not know much about this band, and I sincerely hope that you guys can offer me some suggetions about my enjoyment of their music.

The song "Millionaire Waltz" is pretty good.

I suggest buying the following collection in order to acquire a better understanding of their music.

http://www.amazon.com/Queen-Platinum-Collection-Greatest-Hits/dp/B00006JIA4/ref=pd_bbs_sr_4?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1206972270&sr=8-4

If you like what you hear don't stop there! The music you will hear on those three discs are only scratching the surface. For a list as to what you might buy after that, check out this and choose wisely.

http://www.amazon.com/Queen-nbsp-101-nbsp-nbsp-A-nbsp-comprehensive-nbsp-guide-nbsp-to-nbsp-Queen-nbsp-albums/lm/13SYJTBIFVW61/ref=cm_srch_res_rpli_alt_1

Feel free to ask us of our opinions in regards to what you might want to buy next.

For further information on the band I suggest the following website as well.

Wait until you go thru the rest of the Q.

Quiet Riot
Quarterflash
Queensryche
Queen Latifah

I could go on for an hour, like Treasure Moment, but he obviously is the resident "Q" expert. I'm gonna harden my heart. I'm gonna swallow my tears. I'm gonna turn and leave you here.

Our first member from China, I believe. Are Queen records available to buy in your country?

It's well possible he watched AI - come on, not each and every new user is a hoax.

Queen not available in China? Huh?

I just turned the internet over and it said "Made In China". How can this be?

Perhaps we could send TM to China as our International Ambassador of Queen. Is there a 10 year plan? It could start in Tibet and work its way in.

u c, i'm a new comer here and i have little knowledge about Queen, so i hope you can tell me sth about the song you mentioned. the story behind a song is another reason makes me into the music besides the song itself.

I cannot agree more. The music just like a long-lost buddy who is so familiar to me. I am quite sure the music is to be one of my best companion.

you are right. i have access to this site, otherwise i cannot get information from you.
anyway, i have to be honest, i mean, censership imposed by the government is relatively rigorous.
