I'm just a regular Queen fan, and with 2011 being full of milestones in their history, why not get Bohemian Rhapsody to number 1 for a third time??  I created the facebook group above, and  if anybody wishes to share or comment, feel free!!

I think it's a good idea, but everyone has their own opinions, so I'm bracing myself!!  No harm in trying :-D

Ahh, nice idea!!  I just assumed Bo Rhap is the way forward but songs that didn't get the chart success they deserved or non releases would be a cracker too!!  Let Queen take every place in the Top 40!!

Bo Rhap has already been number 1 twice in 4 different years, let's make it totally surpassable!!?

Only chose Bo Rhap for the record breaking consequences and the fact that it's IMO the greatest song ever written.  But only with Queen is there the option to choose between dozens of songs worthy of a number 1 spot.  Eg songs like TSMGO or WWTLF didn't get the chart successes they deserved, there are so many songs to choose from, as well as superb songs not released as singles.

What a great idea. The thought of Queen hitting Christmas number one with ANY song has got me out in goosebumps.  Bohemian Rhapsody IF they release it on blue vinyl????

How about one that's more simple?  Thank God It's Christmas!!!!

A Winter's Tale is a great shout.  Or one that would be totally unexpected - Ogre Battle, or MOTBQ???


It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

I'd personally love any Queen song at Number 1, and there are sooooo many fantastic choices.  Bo Rhap for a 3rd time spanning 6 years... unbeatable no?  Though there are loads to choose from, MOTBQ is one of my faves, A Winter's Tale and obviously Thank God It's Christmas (Number 1 in 2014 to mark 30 years since release??)  Would love something like Sheer Heart Attack at the top lol!  Perhaps for the next 20 years Queen can have a different Xmas Number One haha!!

It's going to be hard to get a song to top the charts when that song wasn't even released as a single. What about Keep Yourself Alive? AFAIK that's the only Queen single never to chart... Would be great to suddenly get it to number 1.

No, no, no. Rhapsody was tortured by radio enough, let's not add to this by popularising it even more. This song is special and should be enjoyed only as such, if this makes sense. I support the idea of choosing something a bit less known, just not It's Late or Keep Yourself Alive, as this is somewhat surreal, delicately speaking.

If released this live version of the song (the concert was the day after Christmas), rest assured that it would succeed.

How about letting the singles chart sort itself out for a change?

Deciding number ones by committee is fucking cringeworthy.

Guys, there are already several groups out there campaigning for a Queen No.1. If they all pick different songs, then we're less likely to get a high chart position.

The best initiative I've heard is to try and get The Show Must Go On to No.1 in the week of Freddie's death anniversary. If we all pull together and buy the same song at the same time, we can really make an impact.

This year at Christmas there were so many groups trying to get different songs to number one, it was chaos and X Factor just went straight in at number 1.

Worst thread ever. I have more chance of winning the lottery at 14 million to one than Queen ever hitting number one ever again.

That comment might just come back and bite you on the arse lol

Then again, if Queen do hit number one then it would have meant you've won the lottery, so best of luck.  As long as you give us a share....
