I recently heard 'It's Late' on the New York Classic Rock Station Q 104.3. Kinda weird since all radio stations in the U.S. only play...

- Killer Queen
- Bohemian Rhapsody
- Somebody To Love
- We Will Rock You
- We Are The Champions
- Fat Bottomed Girls
- Crazy Little Thing Called Love
- Another One Bites The Dust
- Under Pressure

Once in a while they might also play, 'Tie Your Mother Down', but aside from those I mentioned they don't play anything else.

Since Queen's popularity faded away in the 80s, they don't play any of the 80s hits after 'Under Pressure'. However, I remember hearing 'The Show Must Go On' three times since 1996, though.

Also by a weird chance, I heard 'Keep Yourself Alive', and 'Spread Your Wings'.

The only songs I've heard other than the usual ones you listed are Keep Yourself Alive a few times and Tie Your Mother Down once. I know TYMD wasn't released as a single here in the US, but I'm surprised it's not played more often, since it's so radio-friendly. I switch between two classic rock stations, but lately, both have been playing 60's and 70's, so I never hear Another One Bites The Dust or Crazy Little Thing Called Love anymore.

The George Michael-sung 'Somebody To Love' back in 1993. Boy, was that a surprise!

The entire The Works album. So Keep Passing the Open Windows and Man on the Prowl.

A local radio station did a tribute recently. They played the entire album. *gasp*

Spread Your Wings. . . also on Q104. Keep Yourself Alive I've heard a little more often on that station but it's always a surprise when I hear it

I live in Cincinnati and heard "'39" on a local classic rock station one night

I also heard "A Kind Of Magic" on an '80s time-warp weekend on a local station. I don't think I've heard that song on the radio since 1986...lol

and I cant believe I forgot this one....

one of the local shows on WDFN (sports talk station in Detroit) uses a lot of odd Queen tracks as their music when coming back from commercial! I LOVE that......nothing like hearing Sleeping On The Sidewalk's intro when you're not expecting it! heh....

Yup, those are the only songs I really hear..only I have never heard, "Tie Your Mother Down" and "Under Pressure" on the radio. The most unusual one I have heard is "I'm in Love with my Car."

'Made In Heaven' (Queen version) and once one of our night TV news was ending and host said: "As Freddie Mercury sung: go to sleep and dream again, soon your hopes will rise and then, from all this gloom life, life can start anew, and there'll be no crying soon. Goodbye, ladies and gentlemen!" I was shocked hearing Dear Friends lyrics spoken by TV news host in the middle of the night!

I did my own tribute to Freddie back in early december 1991 in a local FM Station (Brasília, Brazil). I had two programs of two hours each, on sundays.

All of the other radio stations had their own shows, and the greatest hits was all they played.

So I decided to play the good ones, that I had never (or rarelly) heard on the radio. As far as I remember, these were included:

- The prophet's song;
- I go crazy;
- Ogre battle;
- Funny how love is;
- Son and daughter;
- Lilly of the valley;
- Love of my life (studio);
- Keep passing the open windows;
- Love kills (metropolis version);
- Was it all worht it.

THAT was fun :D

I did some more shows from november 1992 to november 1994, but that was all.

Cheers,

Ogre-

A Kind Of Magic live sung by Roger Taylor, following a feature on his birthday.

The same station gave Pressure On and On My Way Up regular airplay, when they were new.
