Which was your first Queen song you've ever heard?
How old have you been? Which Year?

I was 7 or 8 years old in 1984 and it was

Radio Ga Ga
'39
We Are The Champions

Don't remember which one of them was the very first.

'39

i first found a CD in the city on the road when i was like 3 and i kept it in my jacket even though my parents yelled at me- because someone dropped it thats what they tell me and i threw it in my room and found it like 2 years later and had a listen. kind of a funny story when i think about it. Otherwise it was bohemian rhapsody, bicycle race (used to go around on my bicyle singing that), WWRY, WATC from the football/baseball games i used to go to and all the others on a mix tape i had from christmas when i was 3, it also had like the spice girls on it. my mom used to play it for me to go to sleep with- still have it actually....



(no my parents arent Queen fans- they acutally hated Queen until i made them listen to it. Actually no one in my fanily at all has ever heard of Queen, theyre all old and into the beatles(not anything wrong with that though!))

Another One Bites the Dust...when I was 3, I guess. My sister had The Game on vinyl, and we used to dance to it when we were younguns. I didn't become a big Queen fan until much later, though...pity. As I recall, that record got sold at a yard sale.

Who cares if its the wrong forum - its great to see someone is listening to Queen in Afghanistan!

"Crazy Little Thing Called Love" for me, when I was a crazy little thing myself. I didn't become a fan til much later.

Very late 1977 & early 1978. WWRY/WATC. I was 9. I wasn't a fan & had no clue who Queen were. I was riding home from a Phila. 76ers basketball game. It was on the radio in the car. Later in early 78 I moved to a new school in 4th grade. We were allowed to play music before class started & we played this 45 record over & over everyday for weeks. I still didn't know it was Queen. I didn't care about that at the time. Three years later I truely discovered them & became a full blown fan in 1981. I haven't looked back for 24 years.

Hmmm....either Keep Yourself Alive or Killer Queen, on the radio. Either way it was 1974. I think I actually heard Killer Queen first. I heard Ogre Battle somewhere in there too.

Not a song as much as an album - I bought Live Killers because the picture on the back looked like it rocked. I'd never heard anything like it, and still haven't to this day.

First song was Killer Queen.
I heard it from the radio of the people next door in 1974. From the first moment with the sound of the signing guitar, and that magical voice all I could do is press my ear agains the screen to hear it. From that moment I was hooked.

The rest is histroy

Don't stop me now, 1979, I was 9. At the time I didn't understand english, and I thought the DJ was saying the group was "Wings", instead of Queen. The interesting thing is that while "The game, hot space, were being released, I was also listening to Queen I and II, and loved every note coming from them.

Killer Queen in late 74 or early 75. At the time, it was just another good song from a "one hit wonder". I was 12 just starting to really get into music

I heard it on my radio.

other than the songs that are everywhere (we will rock you...) my first real queen listening experience was the summer of 2004. i had been listening to a christian parody c.d. and there was a parody of borap. i was so in love with it and after hearing other people say that it wasn't half as good as the original i went out and bought the greatest hits one two and three collection. that gave me a good overview of queen and started my collection. it's hard to beleive it's only been ayear and a half.
