That would be really cool, are from The NL myself. But they are/were also really popular in Japan, but In The Netherlands, they had the most songs in the last 100/200/300(?) of the top 2000, with, of course, Bohrap on number 1!


I think the millionaire waltz is the most Queen gay song.

In Japan they were really popular, but I think most of their songs barely reached the top 20 or something.

It's probably UK, Netherlands and Germany. I think Queen was the 4th most popular band in the Netherlands, when looking at chart-results (Beatles/Cliff Richards/Elvis had even more hits).

Wow. I offered some helpful, non-sarcastic information that was sort of right. Yay!

UK, Holland, Japan. Also they were extremely popular in some South American countries. I remember reading somewhere that Love of my Life was No. 1 in Brazil or Argentina for a ridiculus amount of time, anyone know?

I thought it was No1 (or in the charts) for something like 28 weeks - but I am usually wrong about these things.

It was a live version of Love Of My Life from Live Killers I think, and it was number one for ONE YEAR. Go to Queenonline.com and look on the history part and search through the albums and you'll see it somewhere. Maybe on Live Killers.

During February and March of 1981, QUEEN had all of their albums on the Argentinian Top 10 (Beat that! ;-).

Queen had 6 albums on the Top 10 on Argentina at the same time on 1981. The Stones' had 5 on 1995 during his first tour here.

I think they had more numer ones in Holland, while in England just 3 (before Fred died)


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

They did really well in the uk and japan. I dont think their is one country they didnt have a top ten hit in. I live in the us and i know they did quite good over here and they play a lot of queen on the rock stations in my city.
