Just last year I was happy downloading and listening to novels. Then I somehow found myself searching You Tube. Well one thing leads to another. Wanting to put Freddie & Queen on my Mp3 and to hold the actual cd I began searching Amazon. And they have an okay selection.
Now I find that my life has been taken over by the need to listen to Freddie & Queen all day. You know while I'm driving, at the gym and home doing chores and what ever. Can't listen at work though.
I recently added Freddie's box set that includes Mr Bad Guy and Barcelona plus a bonus cd. Now this is played more often than the others.. Maybe because it's new it's seeing the Mp3 more often.
Anybody else ever had or having the same experience?
My last question is does any one know how to purchase of You Tube.
The Garden Lodge Improvisations is what I'd really like to have.
What attracts you more about the band? Why - hard to say, but, well, maybe there's a hint there - do you think Queen has such an appeal for you to the point of being addictive, let's say?
I, for one, tend to think it's normal - it's not always helpful to qualify our feelings and stick to the adjectives. It doesn't matter, in this case, whether it's normal or abnormal: what matters is that you enjoy it and doesn't cause harm to anyone by doing it.
If normal means doing what's generally accepted social and moral rules prescribe, then yes, you are absolutely normal: being a big fan of a band isn't any kind of anomaly! And if normal means here only "what often, usually happens within a certain context", then, yes, you're absolutely normal again - fans of bands tend to get this need of listening to the artists they love.
So, I found it interesting that you expressed such feelings, and if possible, well, I'd love if you could share with us what turns Queen into such an addictive music for you.
What really attracts me the most about the band is Freddie Mercury. I just love his singing, his stage performance, his musical cleverness and his brilliant compositions. Listening to him either live or on studio is often a most rewarding and helpful music lesson or lecture.
For as much as I love the guys, Roger and Brian, I am more or less a fan of John Deacon and think his departure was as damaging to Queen as Freddie's death: even if Freddie hadn't passed away, I think Queen would have had a hard time finding another great musician to replace this guy who was, among many other qualities, a great bassist.
