It has been well known that their beautiful and unique choruses are one of the important elements of Queen sounds.
Although I think "Bo Rhap" and "STL" will be surely named, what is your favorite chorus part, or what is your favorite song whose chorus is impressive?
Lap Of The Gods's intro, '39's bridge, Dreamer's Ball's chrodal backing, Long Away's "new child play", Teo Torriatte's third chorus, You And I bridge, Take My Breath Away intro... almost all the Races album!
Flash - the "grand finale"
Dont Stop Me Now - "oh...explode"
The Prophets Song - intro (separated channel on DTS-A)
Princess Of The Universe - "...people talk about you..."
Breakthru - intro
Lover Boy - "to go romancing"
Lap Of The Gods...revisited - "you can do that..."
that crazy harmony in "Body Language", and also in "Staying Power".
Jealosy - vocal break
Sometimes Queen's vocal harmonies can get a bit out of hand; I like it better when dear old Fred carries the melody by himself. However, I fucking love the harmonies in '39. I start bawling whenever I listen to that song - especially the second chorus. Does anyone else know what I'm talking about?
Yes. This is the shit that people who don't 'get' Queen are missing out on. The second chorus of '39 is unbelievably sad and uplifting at the same time. Add to that the harmony changes in each chorus and 'phase shifting' in the third chorus and you have near perfection. For a relative youngster G2, you have a well developed sense of emotion.
I always thought the most emotional part of '39 was "For my life still ahead, pity me." The harmony really drives it home, and then it just STOPS right after that for a second. Excellent stuff.

yeah, I agree with all the comments about the '39, I love the high voice in the bridge part ( I'm guessing it's Roger), and the lyrics are great.
hmmm, for other choruses I like...
Somebody to Love
others too I'm sure but I can't think of them now
well to me, Prophet song is so amazin, the voices are so strange and enigmatic, in the lap of the gods, the "part ll" is so beautiful, mmm...
damn, there's a lot of songs, Play the Game has always been one of my favorites, I just love the sound of their voices together... '39 of course...
i can't live with you sounds very beautiful, and this song that has female voices but is still queen, let me live, one of their best, so beautiful and full of passion
I love those songs to listen to, because their chorus part are very stunning.
Somebody To Love
Fat Bottomed Girls
Take My Breath Away
March Of The Black Queen
Well...I think I could name more songs...
Those songs I wrote above are just the ones which I listened to last night... :-)

Yeah, I'm with ya. The guitar harmony before the second verse gets me reaching for the kleanex.
