Queen:The Singles Rate




Welcome to the Queen Singles Rate. As Queen celebrates it’s 50th Anniversary and its also the 30th anniversary of the death of lead singer Freddie Mercury i thought it would be a nice tribute and celebration to rate all the singles with Freddie as vocalist. This rate will be split into TWO PARTS as they have released a lot of singles - 1973-1982 and 1984-1996 (Queen released no group singles in 1983) so nobody is overwhelmed with a super-long list in one go!
Part 2 will be up next saturday
You have till Sunday the 2nd of May to rate both parts so take your time and enjoy both playlists.
Results will be happening over the months May/June as that is the 30th anniversary of the last time Freddie being a active member of Queen (Video of The Are The Days Of Our Lives and recording of Mother Love in the recording studios in Montreux)

As always, some guidelines:

- Rate every song from 0 to 10.
- Half marks are allowed.
- You have two optional scores of 11 to use across the ENTIRE RATE - you can spread these out as you wish! Two in part 1, two in part 2, or one in each, it's up to you. Of course, feel free to only use one 11 or none at all.
- Scores of -1 will be disregarded, these are not allowed.
- Please rate every song - there's no excuses for missing any of these tracks out and there's a Spotify playlist at the bottom in case you need reminding!

Singles:
xx.x Keep Yourself Alive
xx.x Liar

As an aside, my Uncle Eddie died 3 weeks ago and at his funeral (just ten of us allowed) we went in, masks on, to "Who Wants To Live Forever" and left after the very short ceremony to "Another One Bites The Dust" as he would have found it funny.

Strange times.

What a back catalogue of singles *.* I had to quickly scan their later singles to check one of them is worthy of an 11 at the expense of some of these... I think I'll hold onto my other 11 for the next part. kink.gif

Queen are in my top 4 groups of all time (as well as ABBA, ELO and The Beatles)...The only album I've never got into was the first one so "Liar" suffered here sadly. I'm partial to Hot Space though. As Freddie said, "it's only a bloody record. I don't know why people get so upset about it" biggrin.gif

You could probably have given so many and 11!

You can tell the cultural impact of a group by their songs being like and as well know as things like Happy Birthday or Baa Baa Black Sheep and a lot fit that description where everybody instantly knows the words and melody in things like ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘We Are The Champions’!
