By the way, is it true that Queen once had 10 albums or was it singles in the top 10 in some South American country?

Yap, that's true. QUEEN took the full album top-ten in Argentina during its visit in 1981.

Hi

I'm from Brazil. All south America really loves Queen. Guess 'Love of my Life' was the most known queen song in the 80's (Radio Ga Ga too). Was the first song I heard from Queen. Sometimes they still play that on proms, marriages and things like that.
The famoust version is from Live Killers, with the cool intro by Brian.

It's a great song, but I'll never get what people like about the live versions, which sound pretty crappy to me. They took everything that was great about the song in the first place and dumped it in the live versions.

I like Love Of My Life live. I've always loved how no matter where they play, no matter what language the audience speaks, they always know the song.
