for me : killer queen & the show must go on.
before that i've heard bohemian rhapsody and bicycle race and liked them but when i listened to killer queen and TSMGO i said to myself " hey this band has somethang especial" and listened more and more of them and become a fan.
(hooom what a poor english i have, hope u get what i said)

I heard Bohemian Rhapsody, Prophet's Song, and Death on Two Legs, but never really cared for any of them...

And then I heard We Are the Champions on The Queen Collection...Hearing the Royal Philharmonic play Queen made me listen to them again, and I am now quite besotted with them (and I am also very fond of those three songs, to say the least)!

Ja ne!

No song, But hearing that Freddie's last words were 'pee pee' really did it for me....a true hero

Well, it was at prom, and I was more interested in the guy I was dancing with than the music! Also, in my defense, I'd never heard of Queen before, and thought it was several songs, not one. I will admit that now, looking back, I'm shocked at how little I cared for Queen when I first heard them...but I had also never listened to secular music before, so that was a big thing for me, too.

Ja ne!

Hearing We Are The Champions for the first time.

Listening to No-One But You (Only The Good Die Young) when watching the We Will Rock You musical. I already knew Bohemian Rhapsody, Under Pressure, We Will Rock You and We Are The Chapmpions, but was never paying much attention to them until I'd seen the musical. Just a few weeks before I watched the musical, I saw videos of Somebody to Love and You're My Best Friend and fell in love with them.

I agree Killerqueen. A great way to close Queen: doing a song for a member of the band, such a rare ocassion.

I remember my next door neighbour sitting me down nearly 30 years ago and putting a pair of headphones on me. That was the first time I heard The Prophets' Song. It was pretty spectacular, and nothing like anything else I'd ever heard.

I think it was "The miracle", which someone put on a tape that came into my possession for some reason. I think that IWTBF and RG also played a role.

sorry - from a mouldy oldie - i heard SSOR - and loved it - completely (spring 74)
then later that same year 74 - Killer Queen got me hooked, somehow, Now I'm Here (until a couple of years after) completely passed me by...then in late 75 i remember tuning in to TOTP to see THE video - cut n pasted and sliced and diced to fit the end credits of the show because the sad-arses at the BEEB got fed up with it's reign at the top

Killer Queen - but at the age of 12 I didn't like the fact they didn't smile. But Bohemian Rhapsody cured me of that reservation and I was totally hooked.

The first Queen song that I heard(besides We will rock you and We are the champions) was Who wants to live forever. Then Friends will be friends and then Bohemian Rhapsody. But.. When I heard No one but you(only the good die young) I just fell in love *-* and now my favourite is Mother Love :P


Who wants to live forever..?

First song I'd heard was Mustapha (not the whole Jazz, only this song) and I'd thought: wow, it's good one. And then I heard the whole ANATO and The Prophet's Song did it. I remember how I was amazed, like it was yesterday. And it's almost 25 years now. Jeez :-(


But now it's time to be gone - forever...

Might this be "Let me live"??


The first Queen song I ever heard was Bohemian Rhapsody, and I was an instant fan. Luckily for me, I'd just won a prize at school of an album of my choice and so I bought ANATO the next day.

The rest, as they say, is history...

I got hooked on Don't Try Suicide and Killer Queen when I heard them. From there, I had to have every single album!
