As a Freddie tribute artist, admirer of Queen, etc. and love everything about their music,(most of it any way) I stumbled upon about eight or nine different cards at the Kroger grocery in Texas and saw a huge ad with these things just begging to be opened.  I nearly died laughing, and was realizing at my age how this stuff has come full circle now in my life from seeing the first 33rpm in a store to a gift card!  Wow!  They actually sound very good, and some of them seemed a bit slower than others possibly due to the lithium batteries or whatever causing a decline in actual pitch of the tunes.  WWRY, Champs, Under Pressure, AOBTD, you name it, it was there.  They should've had DOTL for those who want to end a nasty divorce over child support or something dedicated to a loser.  When opened it should just go right to "now you can kisssss my ...

  Anyhoo, long story short, chalk another score up for Queen and their timeless music in acheiving another milestone in marketing.  Cheers!


Look in my eyes, and speak to me, those special promises I long to hear . Thank God for Queen and Jacky Smith for keeping the dreams of so many alive today and forever more!!!

I live in Dallas, Tx.  I have a band called Queen For A Day.  I also sub for the singer of Queen Nation in L.A. which this weekend we'll be performing at Pala Casino in Pala, Ca.  Great guys and lots of fun.  Thanks for asking.  Wish we played more!

Saw some Queen cards ages ago in Walmart..  Didn't get them, but I'll admit, I was tempted.
