what was the first Queen music video you watched?
the first one i watched was radio ga ga, and it was so long ago, id heard the song on teh readio and i thought "ok, thats a good song, i'll check it out on youtube" this was before i became obsessed with Queen by the way, and i watched it and i didnt even know that Freddie pulling around the clock fingers things, (idk what it was) i didnt know he was teh lead singer, he in my mind looked different there to when he was in the flying car. and i thought Brian was somethin like the dude on keyboard, not guitar :O
shame on me but also quite funny :)

I was born in 1980, and have been told that I used to run around as a 4-5 year old singing "I Want To Break Free" whilst using a brush as a microphone.  So I'm guessing it must have been that!  The first one I can remember watching, though, was "Bohemian Rhapsody" when it got re-released in 1991. When I got into Queen in 1995, one of my Christmas presents that year was Flix 1 on VHS and I definitely watched it straight away, so if you exclude that stupid "Killer Queen" intro, it was most definitely Bo Rhap.

The earliest video I remember seeing by them was "Radio Ga Ga" in 1984, when it came out. I didn't know who Queen was and didn't even remember the name of the band. It was just another video showed on MuchMusic. I thought the video was weird and the title was silly. Then again, I was only 8 or 9 years old.

The first video I saw after vaguely knowing who Queen was would be "Bohemian Rhapsody", back in 1992, during the Wayne's World craze.

The first video I saw after I truly became a Queen was "A Kind Of Magic," shown on MuchMusic's request show RSVP. It came on at 4 PM everyday, convenient for me just getting home from school. That would have been 1993, I believe. The host read the letter from a viewer requesting "a song by Queen that wasn't Bohemian Rhapsody". At this point, the only Queen album I owned was Classic Queen, bought only a few months before. So, there I was, standing in my living (home alone), watching what I consider the first Queen video I saw and loving it. I loved finally seeing these guys just performing and having fun (no crazy effects, long hair and bizarre photography)...and no Wayne's World clips.

It was either We Will Rock You (Live Aid) A Kind of Magic or I Want to Break Free

The first TIME i saw Queen was on TOTP 74 performing Seven Seas Of Rhye.

So the first video i saw of Queen would be Bohemain Rhapsody.

I can remember the BR video for TOTP being different to the official one.

NICE Bo Rap!!! You probably saw the version with the flames at the front of the song. I think my first video was probably Bicycle Race back in 78. I think it was shown on Don Kirchner's Rock Concert and back then that show came on about 1:00 in the morning so staying awake was a real challenge.

The first Queen video I saw was The Invisible Man in 1989 and I didn't like it, but I was only 13! Now I like the song and the video too.

The 1st Queen video i saw was BoRhap in 1991 (when I was 5 years old). But actually before that, also in 1991, I saw FM - 'Living on my own' video.

I guess it as Bohemian Rhapsody back in the seventies. Freddie sitting at the piano with black fingernails and bracelets made some inpression on me when I was little. And ofcourse the WWRY / WATC video's. All watched on the seventiesshow TOPPOP with Ad Visser  (more than 30 years ago).
