Okay, a lot of you love to sing along with Queen. What song do you love to belt out the most, with or without accompaniment? In karaoke bars or at home?

No karaoke. Never! and especially not Queen!
But at home I sing along to anything.

Speaking of karaoke... I once met an English bloke at the karaoke in an Irish Pub. He was pretty drunk but still very funny. I took the songbook and picked out Bohemian Rhapsody, wrote his name and the song down and gave it to the DJ and the guy didn't know until the DJ called his name. I think he rather wanted to die when the song started. But he did it! He sang it! And made a fool out of himself but he got the greatest support from the guests that evening. We all wanted an encore.
The following weeks at karaoke he was there, too and everytime he saw me he said: I sing anything but Queen!
One of his friends didn't see him singing BoRhap and he told me later that he offered him 50€ if he did it again!

Funny story, Sonia!

Coming back to the topic: i like the karaoke-version of "It´s a hard life" pretty much. Wonderful piano-tunes! The whole thing reminds me a little bit of the Mr. Bad Guy-instrumentals on the Freddie box-set (e.g. Love me like there´s no tomorrow).
Also cool karaokes: HtF and UP


I´ll eat them whole before I´m done!

If you're at a Queen convention and they have karaoke at the hotel bar, watch out! I was in Dallas, TX in 2003 and the day before the convention started a lot of us had arrived and congregated in the bar for drinks and conversation. Pretty soon, karaoke started and we had fun watching the locals belt out country songs(badly! LOL). Then Gregory Finsley (of Texas cover band Queen For A Day) got up for WWRY and seven of us joined him and had the whole bar singing along. I will never forget the standing ovation Gregory got for WATC...and the black guy who sang Rush's Tom Sawyer (and gave Geddy Lee a run for his money)!

We Are The Champions as a group favorite.

But the one I sing most often by myself is "Love of My Life," because when it comes to that song, I'm an arrogant sucker and I know I sound pretty damn good on it.


God wants you to send me some money.

people often ask me - do I hear voices in my head when I'm singing it.

The best was this past summer - at the Jersey shore at 2nd St. Annie's in N. Wildwood - I sang it with dueling piano players - THEY were impressed.

I do a VERY killer version of Tie Your Mother Down.. I would sing it EVERY time I went out to do Karaoke.. I have the 2 CD set and have sang every song.. it was my challange to do that, although there ARE SOME songs I shall NEVER attempt again.. every time I go out I am asked to do Tie Your Mother Down..

In the bath, in the kitchen. Love singing (very badly) along to 'Spread Your Wings'. Why oh why was that song never the monster hit it deserved to be.

Procession, Chinese Torture, FBI, The Dark, Last Horizon, the live 'Leroy Brown', and a few others.

The worst: anyone attempting STLove and TSMGOn: give us a break, people, ...we're not as drunk as you are. You might sound good with it cranked up in your car or basement, but not at conventions.

Lazing is my fave...easy to do whilst pinching your nostrils shut.
