I know its the stupidest question ever but it's original you gotta give me that. And did Queen have any views on Bob Marley (ive been listening to alotta Ganja music lately) i figure if Freddie met sid vicious he must've met or at least said something about marley even if queens biggest worldwide rise was in 80-81 which was when Marley was sick with cancer.

Cool Cat slightly resembles reggae with the guitar pattern.

I think John met Bob, Crystal told thestory about that


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Actually that was my first thought too. But no, thats not reggae either, although it IS carribean-ish.

I`d say that`s more funk than reggae

Maybe... if you were to hear just the guitar part and nothing else it WOULD be reggae. (notice I'm grasping at straws. this is the first musical genre I've come across that I haven't been able to pin down a song that Queen has done. lol)

No, actually that one's easy.

My melancholy Blues is TOTALLY jazz. And Dreamers Ball also has a jazz feel. Bring Back that Leroy Brown too. Now if you mean SWING that's a bit tougher.

the previously mentioned MLID by Fred, and most of Roger's 'Future Management'

Still recall a Creem issue around the time of the Flash soundtrack where Freddie said his current favorites were Aretha Franklin and The Police' 'Zenyatta Mendatta'. Wonder what Hot Space would have been like had they used more of the latter's style of music.

Hell, no! They're not even CLOSE to jazz. My Melancholy Blues is...blues. Leroy Brown is rockabilly/country, Dreamers Ball is also blues.


Sorry pal, but it's time for a music lesson:

My Melancholy Blues is SO American jazz. I would know, I am an American. I can just here Ella Fitzgerald belting out "My Me-lan-coly, blu-u-u-ues". Leroy Brown is more Vaudvillian/Broadway but it definitely has a touch of 20's jazz. Dreamer's Ball is... well that is a genre all it's own I suppose, although the oohhhs in it slightly remind me of 40's and 50's duwap. And no, none of those are blues. But you know what is? Sleeping on the Sidewalk. If you want to hear blues listen to BBKing or Stevie Ray Vaughn and you'll see what I mean.

(Wow, this topic is straying is it not?)

Hey my American cousin-I ain't gonna slam your musical knowledge but Dreamers Ball is Jazz not necessarily unadulterated Trad but not too far off-someone mentioned the legendary Ella Fitzgerald she could have sung this in the same drawn out style Freddie used and make it her own.
