i got the following informations quite some time ago, and still some of the peaks do look very doubtful - at least to me:

killer queen #15
bohemian rhapsody #1 (2 weeks)
you're my best friend #2
somebody to love #5
we are the champions #3
bicycle race / fat-bottomed girls #17
crazy little thing called love #1 (2 weeks)
save me #32
play the game #19
another bites the dust #1 (4 weeks)
need your loving tonight #36
flash #19
under pressure #3
body language #3
calling all girls #33
radia ga-ga #11
i want to break free #27

as this omits further releases, and no peak is lower than 40, i'm afraid it's even not complete. so someone please can confirm or correct and complete the data above?

Try Sir GH....he's Canadian and has got all of the Queen info that one could ever want. He's got a blog here....just look that up to get the e-mail address for him (I'd rather not post it all over here). If you can't get a hold of him, the next time I talk to him I'll let him know you are looking for it.

Our charts here in the Great White North were a little different than the US Billboard charts. With a pretty good sense of recall, I can say that nothing looks out of the ordinary. Body Language, for instance, and Radio Ga Ga were better received in Canada than in the US. We didn't hate the lack of guitar the way the US market did.


You know, good times are now.

Well, BodyLanguage indeed was one of two singles i definately believed to be some typo, as almost everybody - even in here - seems to dislike this song so much ;)

AODTB, perhaps due to our British heritage, Canada is more open to an eclectic performer than the US is. Queen were sort of given up on in Canada at AKOM, where I'd say Hot Space was the death knell in the US. Body Language got lots of radio and video play, it seemed an aberration at the time, so maybe we were forgiving of it.
