Ok just tuned into MTV classic today, as usual thought they would be playing the same stuff again and again. But have just noticed they played Brian May too much love will kill you and next is another Brian May track. Are they going to play some gems from Queen Solo stuff. Have now set it on Sky+. Has anyone been watching all day and can you tell me if they have played some stuff worth watching.   Driven by You has just started mint i will actually have some good quality versions of classic videos not yet realised on dvd etc. Keep watching guys.

The music channels have been showing "Queens 40 greatest hits" for over a year now, and that includes solo vids from Brian & Freddie. Never been any of Roger's though.

They ain't gonna show anything we haven't already got...

Love Kills at the start of the full video they showed(this is the first time ive seen the video shown in full on tv). The begining shows a scene from Radio Ga Ga? is this how the video started? Gems so far are Love Kills, Too much love will kill you, Driven by you, Innuendo, A winters tail and just seen Who wants to live forever (Highlander version). This is the first time ive got these on my Sky +.

I think they tend to stick to very easily available stuff, mostly off the GVH I/II/III, sometimes they even go on too long and play the first few bars of the next track off the video. They've played the video version of WWRY live from Wembley loads of times, rather than the DVD version.

MTV Classic (and its predecessor VH1 Classic) have unfortuantly played the same, limited material for years. Their selection of Queen songs are mostly from Video Hits I/II. I've never seen them play Keep Yourself Alive, Seven Seas of Rhye, Now I'm Here, Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy, Body Language, Princes of the Universe, The Miracle, Scandal, Headlong, I'm Going Slightly Mad. Whenever they do a Official Top 40 List, the songs evolve around the available videos and they then use solo videos to use up time and replace Queen hits they don't have.
