I finally heard Bohemian Rhapsody...and there was WWRY/Champions and Another One Bites the dust....
But When I heard Queen did under pressure(I heard a song snippet on an NHL game for an intro...i thought it was vanilla ice until the pressure part came on!)that got me totally hooked.

I think the first SERIOUS one (I heard and liked Champions and Rock You, but I had other music then) was when I heard Suzie McNeil sing Bohemian Rhapsody (in its ENTIRETY) on Rock*Star INXS. She did an amazing job. I had thought previously that Queen were a group of African American rappers from the '80's... Don't ask me where I got that!
Another One Bites The Dust.
LOL. I was probably 9 when I first heard it and loved it. Christmas 1980 I got Diana Ross' "Upside Down" which I also loved, as well as an awesome disco lights record player. So the following month on my birthday one of my gifts was the AOBTD single but I wasn't satisfied and shortly later acquired 'The Game' album :)
*Yes, Diana Ross, disco, etc... I was already quite gay.
This is quite difficult. My first contact with Queen was the vid for Innuendo - I was a kid then and I loved it. A few years later I listened to "Greatest Hits II" and I was really interested. I listened to "Greatest Hits I" (AOBTD!!) and that was it - I was hooked:)
innuendo; i really liked the acoustic guitar solo and it was my first favourite song at the age of six.
i asked my father who it is and he gave me a GH2 tape. i don't liked the other songs; only wanted innuendo;>>
a few weeks later my grandma bought me GH1. and then i wanted it all
it's funny to think about that time...
