Yes. My girlfriend asked me for a song about sex and I gave her 'News Of The World' CD with 'Get Down Make Love', she liked it.

yup, my mum actually dismissed Queen as just another rock band of which you can't hear most of the words to cos the singers scream the words out. How she managed to pass by Bohemian Rhapsody still puzzles me! but she really likes their music now; Invisible Man in particular is a frequently requested song in our household!

a large improvement on music she forced me and my brother to listen to - there's only so much of ABBA that you can take...

Sorta. I play Queen a lot when one of my friends come over, and now they have the words of Bohemian Rhapsody memorized :O

I gave my girlfriend a tape of some songs. It had "Dreamer's Ball" and "Who Needs You" on it, and she loved them and came to love Queen because of it.

I took my husband (then boyfriend) to a Queen concert in 1982 on one of our first dates. He wasn't all that familiar with their music, but became a fan after that.

I've introduced a few of my friends to the band but I've never really made them listen to the music. All I've tried to do is get them away from listening to just Greatest Hits and actually buy an album or two!

I've already had a number of classic rock fiends for friends, so it's hard to hook these guys on Queen.
I've got a few people in my sight, so hopefully a few MP3s passed through MSN...

Yup, I played my friend Sheer Heart Attack in class once and she went home and borrowed every Queen album she could find in her Dad's collection.

And my last boyfriend. I met him babysitting his two younger siblings and we used to have massive music fights at his place; I'd play Queen at full blast on one stereo while he was playing Metallica full blast at the other end of the house. I guess I won - he's hooked on Queen now ;) And I don't really like Metallica all that much...

i've made a compilation cd with queen and solo tracks on it for my girlfriend. "You Take My Breath Away" is her favaourite Queen song. She also likes "Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow" and "Touch The Sky."

Hell yes,

my wife, my daughter, my parents and my brother.
i played the songs so many times at home, and in my car there is a mp3 cd with almost every song known to man by Queen. Everybody disliked it in the beginning, but now they are all Queen fans (even my 3 year old daughter she really likes Bycicle Race.)
My wife: friends will be friends
My father: days of our lives
My mother: i want to break free
My brother: Brighton Rock
Myself: i really haven't 1 favorite but if i have to choose It's a hard life

One of my friends on my team likes Queen which is nice because we can relate to our taste in music. Everyone else thinks that i am obsessed with them, but i don't care, Queen kicks ass!

I think I have had the opposite affect with my wife and kids after playing the LPS too much :-)

Saying that though my eldest daughter has a show this month and she is singing "Don't Stop Me Now" so I hear that coming from her room a lot !
