I can't get enough of that song. Literally. My friends all like it as well and request me to play it often, and usually the 'Body Language, ha! ha!' gets caught in their heads and they say it all day long. The only time they don't like me playing it is when we are going to the McDonald's drivethru and gigantic woman ask what we want and hand us our food...

Anyway,
Does anyone else like this song? People under-estimate it so much. One guy said in 'Freddie's Loves' I think it was, that this song killed off America. Well, it's on my local radio station often and it was #11 on the charts... that is great. That's especailly great since the video was rarely seen since it was banned.

It's not their greatest song in terms of lyrical value or content, but it's a fun song; the bass line is smashing.
Cheers

Have you noticed how John actually rules the video? I think it's some sort of hidden message.

I love the song.

I actually quite like it in an odd way, I have to be in the right sort of mood to listen to it but I really like it, in fact I like the whole of Hot Space. (With the exception of 'Dancer' and 'Cool Cat')

I never saw the video until recently at youtube.com.

Sexy.but weird.

As for the song BL it sure went some places during the 80's.

One time,on a 80's documentary about striptease artists. There was a scene with a stripper dancing to a certain music--and it was Body language and it fit the scene perfectly!

So many people hate this song and I don't know why. I happen to love it. LOVE it. Up to and including Freddie's moans. Mmmm, yeah. I like this song.

All you need is for the song/video to be banned and the single shoots right up the charts.


This can't end well.

Except 'I Want To Break Free'... only #45 :-( .. well that's still charting better than most things after 1986 in the USA!!

Yeah he does! I especially like his little smirk at the end. That's got to be the funniest part in any Queen music video.

I'd definatly say I like it. The first time I say the video it was kind of like watching the Rocky Horror Picture Show for the first time- intriguingand weird at the same time. And John is pretty cool in the video.

Not a big fan of it - or Hot Space, for that matter - but it can be enjoyable if you're in the mood for it. A great "Turn-off-the-lights-and-have-sex" song.

That video is hilarious and its soooo dark, and they way they snap their fingers is hilarious too...I dont get the side profile thing at the end...that was too funny to me, lol!! Are they like in a locker room/subway or something...? And its funny how Freddie singing: Oh, you got a cute ass...that just too funny!!! The song is pretty good too, just not what I'm used to hearing from Queen. I can tell by the look on Bri, and Rog's face, that they really dont want to be there, lol...


QUESTION: DO YOU GUYS THINK THEY CAME OUT WITH THAT ALBUM, HOT SPACES, BECAUSE OR ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST BEING A HIT, OR BECAUSE OF THE PRESSURE OF MUSIC CHANGING ALSO?


Loving the pass, cherishing the present, and looking forward to the future

Maybe it was a little of both. I think AOBTD maybe wrongfully gave them the sense that they could make a successful "funky" album. Unfortunatly the result was a controversial one. Still good music IMO.
