Well maybe someone can explain that to me because I don't know.What I do know is that I keep listening to their music on and on and still not fed up with it.
And if I'm fed up with smth., it's with Paul Rodgers.Who the fuck is THIS Rodgers to think that he could that easily take Freddie's place ?Come on,it's not fair at all!!

Well, First of all their music..

Second of all, because of Freddie :).. He´s my inspiration and idol, and I want to be like him, and make a difference like he did. I admire him more than most people, and I would give every single bodypart I have to meet him :D

They help me through rough patchs in my life. Also not forgetting the good times in my life. Queen are part of my life, wether anyone likes it or not. I can't help going without not mentioning them in my conversations for ages!
They just mean everything to me! :D

The music was there to make me feel better during the darkest times of my life. When i felt there was nothing left, the music was there to lift me up and give me a hug so to speak.
It helped keep me just floating to where i could get myself back in order.

And i can relate to pretty much every single song. Its like they read my mind...

Plus its fun, daring, sexy, beautiful, ROCKIN, loud, proud, anthemic, sad, strong, danceable, can't-help-but-kareoke to KICK ASS AMAZING MUSIC!

Well, I think Freddie's overall charisma helped a great deal! ;D But aside from that, they were all a very talented group of guys. The chemistry between them was great, and they made great songs. Their personalities and view on things were also great, and very appealing to the audience. :)

I don't think Paul Rodgers was trying to take Freddie's place. I don't think ANYONE can. I just think they were trying to recreate the magic of former years.

I can't really explain why Queen is so special to me. It's hard to put into words really. Perhaps it's just that the music and lyrics, however weird some of them were, spoke to some hidden part of my heart, the part that wanted to be free of life's expectations and demands.('I Want To Break Free' - 'I Want It All' - 'Breakthru' - 'Under Pressure'-'Let Me Live'-
'Keep Yourself alive' - 'It's A Beautiful Day'-
Need I say more!!!!

The band is just full of energy and inspiration. As a frontman, Freddie just had ultra contagious enthusiasm and their music makes me smile. And Brian, Roger, and John are each definitely their own men in the band as well, they're not just a backing band. And the fact that they worked together through so many difficulties shows that, to unfortunately sound a bit hokey, the power of friendship can survive anything.

Because my VERY first memory in life is sitting infront of the stereo singing to 'I Want It All' (trying to at least)

It's true that they made so many different songs talk about nearly all the things you can come across during your life: that's maybe why youcan always find a bit of you in some (or all) songs.
There's this special chemistry between them and I guess we all want to know how on earth four different guys can get so close with so strong bonds to unite them: by listening their music, watching their videos, we hope to get a little bit of this power, this happiness, this energy.
Queen is synonym of immortality: their name will last forever. They knew how to interact with people listening to them, that's why we tend to feel that they're everybody's friend.
They're great, Freddie was a unique person which turned all those "impolitically correct" manners (as seen by society) into the best things or the funniest things in life (as seen by us).
Queen helps me to face hard times, got me to be more happy than I should be in those joy moments. Could listen to the same song all the day, won't get tired of their music. They're just great and I think that what's makes them special for us is that they make us feel as great!
LOVE QUEEN! Maybe God created men, but Queen created real rock and best music !

Wow, you hit the nail on the head my dear. That was absolutely perfect...
Because those are the things i see and feel.

and "LOVE QUEEN! Maybe God created men, but Queen created real rock and best music!"
Was probably the most profound thing i've ever read in regards to rock music... AMEN! :-D

one of the bands that changed the face of rock music FOREVER!!!

also the sexy Brian *smiles sweetly* *ahem*

and the sound of Roger and John's musical instruments and Freddie's voice somehow managing to make you listen to them.


Nothing matters when knowing nothing matters;;

It's just life so keep dancing through;;

Queen is special to me cause their music speaks for itself. you can already say what you feel through their music. secondly, it's the most beautiful music i've heard yet. lastly, queen music has unique sound that nobody else has, and i Don't know how to explain it. it's just there. you listen to it then you feel good. that's why queen is special.
