Queen had a lot of Number 1s in Europe, but hardly any in Britain. Freddie is the only Queen member with a solo number one in the U.K. (Living On My Own, Remix, 1993.)
(Remixed after he died, obviously).


This can't end well.

Yes, it's strange that Queen didn't have more number ones in the UK. Killer Queen, Somebody To Love, We Are The Champions, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Radio Ga Ga all got to number 2 and I Want To break Free, A Kind Of magic and I Want It All peaked at 3. Still, though, they were more lucky in the rest of the world. Radio Ga Ga was number 1 in 19 different countries and AKOM in over 30.
