Do you remember which was the first Queen video you ever saw? If I can remember right I think the first one I saw was "I want to break free" in the late 80's or early 90's.


Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'

I can remember waiting for hours in front of the TV to watch Flash when it came out.

The first Video I saw was "You're My Best Friend" and immediatly after that "Bohemian Rhapsody" it was on this Friday Night Videos or so, and that was early 1981 or so.

I reckon it would have been "I Want It All" on GMTV/TV-AM, whatever it was called in 1989....

Bo Rhap - autumn 75, i was 13
Top Of The Pops - and despite the BBc editing it in different irritating ways each week - it still lingers as a memory, waiting for thursday evenings to watch it again

the bastards got so bored with having to play it , that some weeks i remember them playing the audio over the closing chat, and then playing just the rock part over the closing credits

didn't stop it selling like hot cakes tho'!!!

Whatever is the first video on GVH1 (I think it's Boh Rap), cos I never saw any until I got it for my birthday last year or the year before...yesh, I shouldn't be losing my memory this early.

I totally forgot about The Midnight Special! I just remember always searching the tv guide for anything Queen. I also went to the drugstore constantly for Circus magazine cause they were always in there back then. :) Looks like we are about the same age, Arlene!

The first Queen video I ever saw was Bohemian Rhapsody (the Wayne's World version). I loved the song and that is what inspired me to buy my first Queen CD. From then on, I was hooked.
