|What was the first Queen song you ever heard? What did you think?
Mine was Killer Queen, and then Don't Try Suicide. I fell in love with those two songs, although I'm not sure why I liked Don't Try Suicide so much...
|Radio ga ga... :) for what i know of my past!|
|I want to break free in Mexico, didn't understand the lyrics, but I loved it, didn't know who sang it either
i was only 8, it's true music is universal :)
|'We Will Rock You' or 'We Are The Champions' probably.
I was too little to remember.
|My earliest memory was hearing Boh Rhap on the car radio, and thinking that it was actually different songs. Then, when I heard the familiar sound of the ballad at the end, I thought, "Wow, songs from my mom's time were long!"|
|"We Will Rock You" - snippets through the hockey game broadcasts on TV here in Canada :P|
|"We Will Rock You," AM radio I think November 1977|
|Radio Ga Ga|
|Killer Queen - then a year later Bo Rhap. I received aNatO for my 14th birthday in June 1976. I had gotten all 5 Queen albums (8-tracks actually) by the end of 1976 or early 1977.|
|It has to be Radio Ga Ga or I Want To Break Free.|
|Penis - Vagina
|I probably heard their stuff without realizing it many times before, but the first time I remember asking 'who is that?' was "Another One Bites The Dust" when I was 9. Soon I had the single and shortly after I got my first 'adult' record player.. in stereo, and 'The Game' was the first album I got for that. So it was my first PSE. (personal stereo experience)
Then I expressed how much I loved Queen and the stepdad let me have 'Queen' which was the only vinyl he had of them, but also let me listen to his reel-to-reels of 'II', 'SHA' and 'ANATO', saying that I wouldn't like any of this older stuff because they had changed a lot.. he was wrong :)
Then I remember having vinyl of everything up to Hot Space.. then I lost touch with Queen for awhile.. MTV showed up, I discovered masturbation, got heavily into 'regular' top 40 stuff and expanded my horizons so much that I never owned another Queen album or single or anything until 1991.
But during that time I heard them every once in awhile.. Radio Ga Ga, saw the Break Free video at least twice on U.S. MTV because I recorded the audio portion the 2nd time.. we had the MTV stereo simulcast thing :)
And I remember 'One Vision', 'I Want It All', and 'Innuendo' on the radio.. but it was the TV special to promote the Hollywood catalog.. 'The Days of Our Lives' that reminded me how much I loved them.
When they showed TATDOOL at the end I remember thinking.. 'what the hell?' Freddie looked so different. I thought he'd had plastic surgery or something.
Started buying the Hollywood stuff with 'The Works' on cassette, but I was furious when I found that it didn't have the version of 'Break Free' which I knew and loved.. so I eventually got the CD and bought the rest throughout 1992 and beyond...
Went through stages where I got sick of them and sold everything.. always keeping tape copies though :) Then something new would be released and I'd start buying everything again. LOL.
So in my current round of obsession, which started with GVH2 (I bought the first, but it didn't hook me into buying everything again.. it took GVH2 to do that) I'm keeping everything this time (guartanteed!) and making a conscious effort to keep everything mint, and replace the few remaining older discs I still had.
Umm, so my answer is 'Another One Bites The Dust'. Thanks for asking :)
|Went to see Mott The Hoople on November 18th 1973 at the Vic Hall in Hanley and came out a fan of the support band QUEEN and I've been a fan ever since! Can't remember what they opened with I guess it could have been Procession/Father To Son but whatever it was that was the first Queen song I heard!|
|Radio GaGa - i´ll never forget that moment when i saw the video first on my grandma´s´T.V. When the handclapping-scene started i´ve been caught at once.|
|Keep Yourself Alive in 1973 on AOR (album-oriented radio). I've been hooked ever since! :-)|
|the first one i ever remember hearing was Bohemian Rhapsody, I recall being like 3 years old and hearing this thing that sounded an absolute horrific mess and then I heard it again when I was 11 or so and said "THATS IT!" and my grandmother thought i was listening to mmusic about being posessed... but low and behold, the next year mother bought a queen cd and i was quite sure it was them... etc etc|
|The Black Queen
|First Queen song I heard was Bohemian Rhapsody on the VH1 Legends program I saw when I was young. The video completely mesmerized me and the song had me asking everyone on the street if they had any Queen tapes.|
|Surprising.. mine's Love of My Life actually - thought that everyone knew this song then.|
|I dare say 'Somebody to Love'. My dad was taking me to school and Somebody to Love came on the radio. He turns it down and says 'This guy died of AIDS'. I didn't think much of it then and I guess he doesn't either because the last 2 or so years he calls him a 'buck toothed bowel botswain'
|Bob The Shrek
|Brighton Rock, at a friends house in 1974.|
|We Are The Champions I think, without knowing it was Queen though. Guess from football or somethin.|
|The first Queen song I ever heard was probably WWRY or WATC but the first Queen song I ever heard that I KNEW was Queen was probably Bo Rhap.|
|I think it must have been KYA on 'The Old Grey Whistle Test', but so many artistes were played on there it would be difficult to say exactly. The most dramatic was Bo Rhap - on my steam radio in a Fiat 128 one summer morning long, long time agos.
|God Save The Queen was the first Queen song I ever heard, back in 1996 I think, when I was 8. My dad had been watching one of England's rugby matches on TV and then he said he loved Great Britain's national anthem and he wanted to listen to it again, so he played our old ANATO vynil. Then he listened to BoRhap saying this was a Beautiful song, though I thought it was real crap. The same I thought about Death On Two Legs and Love Of My Life, but I fell in love with
Seaside Rendezvous!... Next time I listened to the vynil again, when I was 15, I desperately fell in love with all of it (especially BoRhap).
|Killer Queen, on a dutch music program called TopPop in 1974.|
|Wow - I'm amazed at all of the "from the beginning" Queen fans like myself!
It doesn't really matter how long ago one heard their first Queen song -- it matters that it was NOTICED! Hearing Keep Yourself Alive for the first time had me wanting to hear it more than once, and to check out the face behind that voice! (I was more than pleasantly surprised!) My dad got a promo copy of Queen I and I promptly played it over and over and over. With each Queen album, this process was repeated...and to this day it still is!
|Mine was We Are The Champions|
|"We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions," but in relation to sports and stuff. However, "Bohemian Rhapsody" was the first one I heard that I knew was Queen. I actually didn't like it at first- it was the Galileo part, and it freaked me out. I love it now, of course. Also, the song "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane scared me the first time I heard it, but then I became obsessed with it.|
|I think it was "Friends will be Friends"
, because in 1989 (here in argentina) there was a tv program called "amigos son los amigos" (in english "friends are friends"), and, obviously, the soundtrack of that tv program was that song
|The first Queen song I heard was Another One Bites the Dust, on a cassette tape that belonged to my friend's parents when I was about 4 or 5 years old. My friend's older brother told us that the band that made the song was named "Queen," which we all thought was quite hilarious at the time.
I didn't really appriciate Queen until I got one of those ESPN Jock Jams albums with WWRY and WATC on it, and I couldn't stop listening ever since.
|I think the first Queen song I ever heard was We Will Rock You. I instatntly loved it, but was too young to fully appreciate it. It wasn't until I was 15 and heard my first Queen album that I rediscovered many of their songs.|
|The first song (and video) I've heard (and seen) was Another One Bites The Dust. It was on MTV a lot in the early 90's and at an age no older than four, I got my first taste of a true showman and band. One of the biggest highlights of my youth
|The first Queen song I ever heard was when I was 6 and I was watching Wayne's World with my mom. I heard Bohemian Rhapsody and I fell in love with that band I have loved them since and will contiue to.|
|Bo Rhap... and then I was obsess by this band.
I start to buy all CD and video I could get.
|Well, my first Queen song was Flash, and the entire soundtrack when my father took us to an autocinema to watch Flash Gordon, the movie, so in that time (about 8 or 9 years old, maybe) I didn´t know it was Queen.
Later a friend from the school let me copy the Greatest Hits I and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra playing Queen. Those cassettes change my musical life forever.
|~* Queen4Ever *~
|I want To Break Free.Followed by We Will Rock you and Bohe Rhap.|
|Mine was I Want To Break Free. I was four I think, and saw the video on TV. Totally fell in love with the song, and thought the video was hilarious:))) I remember asking my dad why are these ladies so ugly, and he laughed and told me they are no ladies, but men. I adore them ever since.|
|Bohemian Rhapsody, nice beggining, eh?|
|I think its probably Flash, when I watched the film with my Dad at the cinema. Loved the film and loved the throbbing start of Flash.
Probably Queen's only 'children's song' as in Yellow Submarine is a children's song.
|i dont know but prob would have been WWRY or WATC|
|When I was 3 or 4 I first heard "Another One Bites The Dust" from The Game.(Now I have that record.)Then when I was 14 I got Classic Queen and FM Tribute Concert,and fell in love with Freddie.|
|When I was a year of seven maybe eight, my (older) friends sang I Want To Break Free. That was the first time I was confronted with Queen.|
|bicycle race- it was quite an interesting experience...i thought they were crazy yet soo cool..after that i was hooked!|
|We are the Champions had to of been the first Queen song I heard... the song that really lured me into the Queen world was Bo Rhap... yes... on wayne's world... I will admit it...|
|"Seven Seas Of Rhye" on radio and it completely changed my view on music. The harmonies and everything... A few years later (1976)I moved to a new place. A neighbour living on the other side of the street where of the same age, so we started talking and realized we both LOVED Queen. We have been close friends ever since and we still love Queen.|
|My first recollection was Bohemian Rhapsody which I thought was awesome.
Some time later and by chance, I heard Brighton Rock which totally blew me away and i've loved their music ever since.
|The first Queen songs I heard was WWRY, WATC and AOBTD.
The song that made me get into Queen's music was IWIA. :)
|I heard "7 Seas" on the radio in 1974 (I was 14 at the time) and fell in love immediately - especially with that incredible guitar sound (never had heard anything like it before!) Then came Killer Queen and Now I'm Here and I loved them, but when they played Bo Rhap for the first time I fell to the floor laughing - boy was that funny!|
|Ice Ice Baby, i loved it. Years later I heard a cover version by David Bowie, and thought it was crap. Nothing can beat the original|
|MMMMMMMmmmmmm........God! It was sooo long ago I'm not really 100% sure but I think it was "Another One Bites The Dust" in 83 when I was just 4 years old, after that my next time (this I'm sure of)was in 1990 with "I Want It All".|
|"We Will Rock You" the kids used to sing it on the school bus when i was youunger,and of course,being a 5 year old,I had no idea who sang it.|
|Mine was "Don't Stop Me Now" in 1979, it means 25 years ago!!! This song was a huge hit in my country, PERU in 1979, and I liked it a lot. Monthes later, I heard Bohemian Rhapsody and my music world changed!!
|Killer Queen on TV by Avro's TOP POP|
|Methinks it probably was Bo-Rhap ... however, first time I really started listening, it was A Kind Of Magic. (WWRY and WATC as sports stuff, hockey games, whatnot, but yah.) I count AKOM as the first. :)
(And I couldn't stop listening.)
|Thinking about it the first song that I heard that I said 'Hey, this sounds like Queen' was Killer Queen. I was so awestruck by it I couldn't remember a lot of the lyrics so I asked my friend who liked Queen at the time 'Does Queen have a song that goes 'dynamite with a laser beam'?'..he confirmed my beliefs. So I murdered him later on.|
|The Fairy King
|I Want To Break Free, around 1987 on Super Channel|
|I want to break free was mine :)|
|I'm not sure what QUEEN song was the first one I ever heard, because I was waaaaaaaaaaaaay to little to remember, but I remember my parents always singing radio. So I think it might have been Radio Ga Ga.|
|I ment to say my parents always singing radio ga ga not radio.|
