in the new NME beatles solo 1970 - 1980 special. there's an article on paul mccartney's 'Ram' album from 1971. in it they say something along the lines of, [i'm in work and don't have it in front of me] the song from the album Back Seat of My Car - queen stole the style of music and based their whole career on it. i have the album and the song is fantastic, however i don't see it as being much like queen to be honest [it just sounds like a great mccartney track to me.

does anyone know the song? if so do they agree or disagree with what the NME say?

NME are worse than Rolling Stone to Queen. The NME (or enemy as you say and as I have read Roger called them once), have had an almost 3 decade long war with enjoying to sarcastically abuse Queen with every opportunity they get.

I don't know why...but they seem to gain immense pleasure at ragging on Queen.

Dude NME sucks. Dont read it. I picked up a copy with Queen in it and its stupid. Its 100 pages of run-of-the-mouth bullshit.


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?

as a rule i don't read it. it was just because it was an entire issue dedicated to the beatles.
didn't the NME give made in heaven a good review though in 1995. i think it was them who gave it 9 out of 10

P.S. Brian REALLY hates the NME and has said so MANY times on his website.

So what. The Beatles themselves werent above all that nicking other peoples' styles either. Listen to "You Got To Hide Your Love Away" and you would swear it was written by Bob Dylan. And thats just one example.

I just listened to the song.. To tell you the truth.. The music, the vocal harmonies, Paul's lead vocal, and the lead guitar are all somehow similar to the early sound of Queen.. So what? Does that Queen imported all of their talents from just one song by Paul McCartney? No.. this is very limited thought by whoever wrote it..
