Wasn't it Dancing Queen that pushed Somebody To Love out of the number one spot? Or kept it from getting to the top? I forget which one it was. :)

Dancing Queen pushed BoRap out of number one in early 1976.

That's it. I wrote Bohemian Rhapsody first, so I'm not sure why I thought it was Somebody To Love...

Both Abba and Queen were great bands ... and both are now trashed by a shitty musical, but their music will even survive that!




Why does everyone hate We Will Rock You? I thought it was great. It was what made me like Queen. I didn't really want to go and when i walked out I was really surprised at what good music Queen had.

Actually I saw the ABBA musical and thats pretty much the only reason I went to the Queen one, because I figured if I didn't really like the music at least it would be reasonably funny. And I don't know about anyone else but I thought it was hilarious...

Hmm now I'm happy I just had to get that off my chest.

yeah, after Mama Mia knocked BoRhap off the charts, every member of Queen went over to ABBA's recording studio and messed'em up. They stapled a note saying "don't screw with Queen" on their foreheads. The entire incident sparked them to write the song "If You Can't Beat'em, Kill'em" but the band's manager suggested that they change the title.

I wonder why so many people have such problems with ABBA... They really are a good band!
