Well there are quite a few DoRo videos that fall into the same category. 'Seven Seas Of Rhye' annoys me because they use footage from 1985 Japan (I think) mixed with 70s press junket stuff, and I hate when stuff isn't even from the proper era.

'Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy' on the other hand used an old concert performance which actually worked quite well since it was from the right period.

Has anyone seen the 'Keep Yourself Alive' video? The early XX century film footage looks so damn cheesy. They should have just kept the performance and no clips at all.

There's also a video for 'Stone Cold Crazy' for the Encino Man sountrack... Awful as well.

The worst video is for Fat Bottomed Girls. Boring, crap lighting, one or two cameras, and barely any footage of Brian and John. Another One Bites The Dust is a close second.

I'm not too keen on most of their videos. They may have pioneered the use of the medium, yes, but most of their early things are straightforward performance videos - boring as crap.

That said, I'd go with 'Fat Bottomed Girls', 'Bites The Dust', 'Play The Game', and all of the DoRo cut-and-paste disasters.

Hey! this is one of my favorite, I love it!

I think worst are Queen Rocks Videos, Tie Your Mother Down, I'm In Love With my car, We Will Rock You, Fat Bottomed Girls, Sheer Heart Attack...but number one:

We Are The Champions! (dear God)



And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...

DoRo did a lot of crap, but you can't take credit away from them because they did also good videos.

Indeed the worst DoRo videos are the collages of recycled footage.

Thank god no one has said Back Chat or Calling All Girls. I honestly think they are creative videos, though not as spectacular as Radio Ga Ga or Innuendo.

My pick for worst video would either be Under Pressure or Seven Seas Of Rhye.

Under Pressure, because there's no footage of Queen or David Bowie, and that would have been really cool, like pieces of them in the studio (couldn't be done though, because their session lasted one day), or on a stage or something like that.

Seven Seas Of Rhye, because it's not really creative, plus it's just not consistent (footage from performance in 1985, though the song is from 1974).

Any other bad eggs? lol

Yeah, Calling all Girls is crap, Back Chat is ok, Freddie seemed to be enjoying himself. The middle of I want To Break Free is shite and I never liked The Miracle. And Under Pressure, That just get skipped every time!

The Miracle, Fat Bottomed Girls and Under Pressure, because they're just not the most interesting of videos.

We Will Rock You, a great song but the video is a bit feeble I think its the white boots, the first time I saw it, it made me laugh and I dont think that was the effect it was meant to have on people. For some reason it always reminds me of Sooty and Sweep.

I agree with Under Pressure.
It's just boring not seeing the band...

A HArd Life (sorry FM) over done to the max!

The first Under Pressure video (sucks!)

The newer one with Bowie interspliced with FM is dynamite by comparision.


Kriz ;o)


Long Live Queen!!!

I dont know I really dont like bycicle race. Its too much freddie. And I think under pressure sucked as well as all the top of the pops stuff. I really like I Want It All and Breakthru. very good videos.
