I was watching at the downloads and uploads of my computer and i remembered this:

1)Can you tell wich songs by other artists were inspired by Queen(can be a riff, a vocal line, guitar sound, etc)?- If you can, then name the song and tell us why you think so.

2)And about Queen. Can you tell wich songs inspired Queen and why?

Me first:
I allways thought that "Don´t try Suicide" has a guitar sound/mood that was inspired by The Police´s "Message in a bottle".

"Silver salmon" sounds to me like THE WHO meets LED ZEPPELIN.

Oh, yeah - and "Crazy little thing called love" sounds like Elvis Presley... and "Another one bites the dust" sounds like Chic.

Someone else (I won't steal credit for this) pointed out a while back that SYW is very reminiscent of Rocky Raccoon.
NYLT is very much like 8 Days a Week.

My own personal comparrison is between the ends of IGSM and Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite.

...sorry I didn't branch out from The Beatles!

The chorus of U2 song "It´s a beautifull day" were inspired on "Father to son" and all the Queen II album- i`m referring to the multitrack vocals, not the music. The first time i listened to it i thought imediatly on Queen II. Do you feel the same about this one?

Take care

I would say
1. the bass line of “Breakthru” was inspired by AC/DC’s “Whole Lotta Rosie”.
and
2. the guitar riff of “You don’t fool me” was inspired by the bass riff of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”.
