Hello! I know, i haven't been here in a while. Been really busy with People to People and The Wizard of Oz and school and so on...

Anyway, i've got a question that goes with a story and a story that goes with a question...

The other day, my friend Jim (who is a Queen fan) came up to me and told me this story...

He was over our friend Sam's house (not a Queen fan...yet.). He was introducing Sam to the wonders of Queen. So, he searched Queen on itunes and something odd came up. Mr. Roboto - Queen. So...

He came to me during Latin and asked if Queen sang Mr. Roboto. I told him i doubt it but ill try to find out for sure. So here I am.

The Question - Did Queen sing/record Mr. Roboto?

With Love,
Me! Who Else?

No, Queen didn't write, record or perform "Mr. Roboto". The song was written by Dennis DeYoung and recorded & performed by Styx, that was a 1983 single before Queen released their 1984 albumn "The Works." See the post above for more info. When you listen to it, you can tell the difference in singing between Dennis DeYoung and Freddie Mercury.
