THE FIRST SONG that made you become a fan...?

Upon hearing Bicycle Race, I became a fanatic. =)

Bo Rhap, I think. But of course I had no idea it was Queen.

Before I knew what Freddie looked like, I pictured him as a skinny white boy with a severe case of acne.

That i remember?

Must of been when my teacher played us Bohemian Rhapsody in music class. I think we had to analyse it.

i can't recall anymore precisely, as i was eleven when i accidentally walked into this Queen supporing Mott the Hoople show in the congresgebouw, in The Hague, on december 8th 1974, and i never really knew what i was listening to and what song they played first then. But within 3 weeks from that show i saw them again, during the AVRO's TOPPOP recordingsession for the dutch version of the Killer Queen clip. I was there then because my father had to do a radio interview in the same studio unit. So in my case i guess i should say it was Killer Queen i really heared first. But i became a fan because of Bohemian Rhapsody....

Well, I guess naturally I heard We Will Rock You all the time at sports events, but I didn't know who the artist was at first so I guess the real song I heard and knew it was by Queen was You're My Best Friend! I was seven and watching "America's Funniest Home videos" and they were playing it while showing a bunch of funny dog clips. My Dad started singing along and he told me who they were. I didn't really know who Queen was yet until two years later... but I still liked the song. =)

First one I heard: Another One Bites.

First one I liked a lot: You're My Best Friend or Don't Stop Me (I don't remember which one did I listen to first).


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

My first song was "Friends will be Friends" in 1990, it was the music of a TV program (here in Argentina), and I got absolutly amazed by that song, then I realized it was from a band called Queen. Then I bought a Cassette, then is history...

The first time I heard Queen was We Will Rock You and I remember my dad saying, "The guy who sings this died. He was gay." For some reason that just always stuck in my head even though I was like 5.

The first time I saw Freddie was when something was on TV about Live Aid and I was like, "He doesn't look like he sings Killer Queen." Then a few years later I saw the BoRhap video and I thought he was scary. But eventually I saw the video clip of Queen in Japan in 1975 and I've loved Freddie ever since!

Friends will be friends was the first song i could recognize that was made by Queen. Before that i didn´t know what they looked like, so once my uncle was listening to Queen II (that now i realized it was that album) and i used to think it was a group of women :P

Another One Bites The Dust...I had an argument with my brother about it when I was in 4th grade cause I swore it was by a hip hop group and not some rock band called 'Queen' I guess I was wrong :)
