My wife and younger son have had a nasty case of the stomach flu this week - but I feel like a lucky punk ...

Why? Well I was listening to a homemade compilation CD that someone had trade with a few years ago ... and I listened to four Anita Dobson songs without blowing chunks. There's no way I'll catch the stomach flu now - I've been vaccinated against the stomach flu by Anita.

I hope I didn't jynx my luck ...

Hello Faye.

Anitia Dobson is Brians wife. She is a famous actress here in the UK, Brian helped her make an album a few years ago, its a pretty bad album, but some of Brians playing on it is superb. There was a hit here in the UK called 'Talking of Love' personnally I could'nt get past the second verse. But anyway theres a wee bit of info for you.

Smarmy stuff - Talking of Love, I Dream of Christmas and To Know Him Is to Love Him are listenable musically, but the lyrics are overly cutesy and nauseating.
When We Make Love has no redeeming qualities whatsoever ...

and there you have it ... my unbiased opinion.

Anita is married to Brian, what does that have to do with Queen??

I sincerely hope that liking Queen doesn't automatically mean you have to like everything their wives, girlfriends, childeren, cousins, nephews, brothers, sisters, friends, etc. do!

I heard some of these songs just once, and for me that was one time too many.

I heard one of the songs once (sounded like barking dogs or something), don't remember its name, but it was honestly one of the worst songs I ever heard that was supposed to be taken seriously. It was a fucking annoying noise.

I have never listened to an Anita Dobson song. She can't be that bad. I've heard bad. I'm pretty immune to pop stuff.

I don't like the songs, but Brian saves some of the worst of them with beautiful solos.

There are some really bad Queen songs in which he did the same. I guess the man would say: "Jee, this is really bad, I gotta save it. That's it! Save it, save it, saaaave it! I can't let this shit alooone!!!" :)

Cheers,

I disagree. A guitar solo cannot save a truly bad song.

Anita can't sing her way out of a tin can but her performances on EastEnders were fab!
Maybe Brian wore earplugs when they recorded all of those songs. Poor guy, he had to listen to all that...blinded (deafened?) by love, I guess!

Geeksandgeeks, I see what you mean, but I'm talking about a Brian May solo. :)

Now, seriously: sometimes I'm listening to some bad or not-so-good Queen songs, and I almost hit the button of the player to go to the next song, and then... bang, there comes Brian. I really fell like he felt that he needed to do something about the worst songs. And boy, he did so.

Cheers,

I was watching a video of some morning shows that she and Brian were appearing on promoting her (then-new) album. I couldn't get over the way there were so many cuts and that some person was always sitting beside Brian (too close for comfort actually!) and the person kept changing -- some editor, eh? (LOL)
When one came to the question "Are you two involved as a result?" Brian was laughing and said, "No -- I'm happily married, my wife understands I work long hours in the studio" -- and Anita was laughing and blushing beet-red. Talk about a dead giveaway!!
(They never played anything from the album -- could that have been a sign??)

Well, I just found one of Anita's songs, and listened to it.

Oh, come on, folks, it's not THAT bad! And I'm not talking about Brian's solos either. It was fun. It made me smile. I can enjoy stupid things every so often. :)
