August A-Z Music Challenge – Day 17 “Q”

I’ll never stop thanking Getting Through Anxiety & The Melodramatic Confessions of Carla Louise for creating this fantastic monthly challenge!
August 17th is a “Band/Singer that starts with the letter ‘Q’ or Your Choice.”  My choice just so happens to be a band that starts with “Q.”

Q is for Queen!!  Not only does it keep me on the alphabetic track, but Freddie Mercury was a freakin’ genius with a 4-octave range.

I mean, come on… “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Somebody To Love,” “We Are The Champions,” “Fat-Bottomed Girls,” “Killer Queen,” “We Will Rock You,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” & “Bicycle Race?”  I would be willing to bet anything I own – aside from my cat; no matter how sure I am of something, I never bet the furball – that every one has heard at least one song on that short list, & everyone has probably sang along to more than one.

Also, aside from “Fat-Bottomed Girls”  & “We Will Rock You,” all the songs I listed were written by Freddie Mercury.  That cements his genius as far as I’m concerned.

Who else starts with “Q?”  If you decided to use the “Your Choice” option, who did you choose?  🙂

    • I was pretty sure it was gonna be the one everyone thought of too. Still, I didn’t have to think of anyone after I thought of Queen!

      Now that I’m thinking of other “Q Bands,” without the unbearable pressures of picking someone to post, of course, there’s also Queens Of The Stone Age (I think I know a song of theirs? Or maybe I’m just confusing that song with having heard of them before) & Quiet Riot.
