Queen Song Memory of the Day

I'm being totally lazy today so I don't have a What I Wore to post, but I didn't want to not post a Queen song memory of the day in honor of my 100 Follower Giveaway (click here to enter).

Another One Bites the Dust - This is probably the first Queen song I ever loved. I remember when Napster first came out and I downloaded this song and listened to it so much that it got a little blip in the mp3. Don't worry though, John (Deacon, the bassist and writer of this song), eventually I properly purchased this song! I remember listening to the song over and over until I learned all the words - I particularly liked the second verse,

How do you think I'm going to get along without you when you're gone?
Take me for everything that I have then kicked me out on my own.
Are you happy? Are you satisfied? How long can you stand the heat?
Out the doorway the bullets rip to the sound of the beat. Look out!

When I drove 10 hours from Virginia to Connecticut to begin law school, I made a mix CD to listen to in the car. This song was on it (immediately followed by Rod Stewart's You Wear it Well). I listened to that CD probably a thousand times and to this day anticipate Mr. Stewart's song will begin when this one ends!

Stay tuned tomorrow, I've got some fitting room reviews that I'll post first thing in the morning!

Happy Sunday!


  1. Hi Kathleen!
    This song was my first Queen fave, too! I got a 45 of it for my birthday (do you remember 45's or are you too young??!) and I listened to it non-stop and as loud as I could on my little record player!!
    Looking forward to the fitting room reviews tomorrow- have a good weekend!

  2. Rinette - Of course I remember 45s. My dad is a huge record collector so we always had all sorts of albums around the house. I used to love those little plastic inserts you could put in the 45 to play it on a regular record player! I also had an Alvin & the Chipmunks carrying case for all my 45s. I was a pretty hip kid!

  3. That is so awesome- Alvin & the Chipmunks!! My brother and I had an album of theirs, which we played non-stop and drove my dad nuts!
    Do you have any Queen on vinyl? Records are just so cool- they don't sound as clear as CD's of course, but there is just something about them that makes the music seem so much better!

  4. You know, I actually don't. I'm not even sure my dad has a record player anymore - I certainly don't. I agree though - there's something about a record that makes listening to music a whole different experience!
