My Alphabet of Songs: Q

So I’m up to Q with my Alphabet now…except that the only Q song on my iPod is a remix of Quiet Storm by Smokey Robinson, and the only other Q song I can think of is Que Sera Sera.  Um, no.

So let’s go with my favorite Q band — Queen.

This one is dedicated to Paul, the biggest Queen fan I know.  Here are some lesser-known Queen songs to help us remember that Queen wasn’t just a band with a few iconic pop tunes.  Be sure to listen to the last one — Freddie’s voice really shines.

  1. Don’t Stop Me Now
  2. A Kind of Magic
  3. Living on My Own
  4. I Want it All
  5. I Want to Break Free
  6. Spread Your Wings
  7. Play the Game
  8. It’s A Hard Life
  9. The Miracle
  10. A special treat – a live performance with Freddie and Spanish operatic soprano Montserrat Caballe: Ensueno.

  1. Worthwhile Q songs are rather rare. The only 2 I can come up with are Question (Moody Blues) and Questions 67 & 68 (Chicago). While I am sure there are more you cannot miss with Queen (even if using the Artist name is a cheat of sorts – it is, after all, “Q”.

    1. Aha — Thank you for those two, which I completely forgot! But I agree — they’re rare, which is why I figured I could make the exception here. If I make the rules, does that mean I can’t cheat? You’re the best, Lonnie! Thanks! xoxoB

  2. Thanks for the shout out Becks! You are right though, I am a HUGE Queen fan, probably my fave band. Freddie certainly had his “issues” but Oh My what a voice he had. Such a tragedy, I still get depressed if I ponder his untimely death too much. So much talent…..

    1. You’re welcome!
      Yes, it’s too bad he’s not still here making music. There are quite a few artists gone too soon, in my opinion. Who knows what might have come out of John Lennon in his twilight years — or Buddy Holly, or Stevie Ray Vaughan?
