Does anyone else think that Queen's songs could be made into a musicals?????? I think they could. His lyrics are like mini plays and the actual music is so dramatic! I love it!!

Nope.

Er, wait a second. Maybe they could.

I got an idear. How 'bout doing something similar in theme to Rush's '2112' or Styx'
'Kilroy Was Here'?

And call it....uhm, er, well, something similar to the first track from, oh, what the heck, the 'News of the World' album.

whaddya think?

Hey I know not everyone is a musical kind of person but don't just completely say 'Nope.' Give it a chance. I don't know who those examples you were talking about. Are they like Queen? I am sorta a new fan to the legendary Queen! :)

What Goodco is trying to tell you is that there is such a musical and a phenomenally successful one at that called 'We Will Rock You'. Find out more at: www.queenonline.com/wewillrockyou

You know, hearing songs like '39 or The Prophet Song, I think Brian could've easily written a rock opera (ala Townshend). What a pity they never did it!

A 2112 musical? That would be killer. The song (over 20 minutes long) is a tale all within itself... :p

I think the second side of Queen II (Side Black) could be seen as somewhat of a loose concept album, but that's about as close as they came. I remember Brian wanted to do a concept album but the rest called him pretentious (a bit ironic coming from Queen ;)

Whenever they did something serious like "The Prophet's Song", it was in the midst of other more comical numbers showing they weren't taking anything too seriously...they did seem a little unsure of themselves at being able to do something completely serious (which they were capable of), instead opting for doing "spoofs" of serious material. Of course everything turned out great in hindsight :) But I guess they weren't always as confident as they appeared.

There are some dickheads on this site, and Emma is not one of them. It’s the cock suckers who make fun of other people who don’t have the knowledge of what’s out there. Sure, any one can look up shit on the net, but it would be more fun to make friends here and share information. To the losers who wanna berate and shun the others whom you know better than, go jam it!

I just hope you know that you didn't just blow your cool once, it happened quite a few times. But I am glad you understand that you were being insensitive and mean.
