She finally shouted at him, 'You've got mud on your face, you big disgrace!

@katydyd, OMG, I cracked up about that story about your granddaughter. She sounds adorable - and clever! I remember when my nephew was in early elementary school, he heard "Fat Bottomed Girls" on my car stereo and commented that the lyrics were "mean." Apparently, it's rude to call out girls' bottoms as "fat." LOL

@mika, when my nephew was 3, the age of your daughter, I would play B.B. King's version of "The Thrill is Gone" in my car. The lyrics may not be the most appropriate, but it's an easy song for a preschooler to learn, because the line "The thrill is gone" repeats 9x. Plus, it's a rock and roll blues classic. Start 'em young. As I drove, I'd yell out, "I forgot the lyrics again. What's the next line?" My nephew, strapped in his car seat in my back seat, would bellow back, in tune to the music, "The thrill is gone!" Those were the days.

Blenkolove and katydyd, enjoy your grands when they're young and you're the Master of the Universe over your car stereo. I'm no longer in control. My teen nieces and nephew resent it when I try to force my beloved classics on them, esp. when they're captive en route. They have Spotify and have managed to pair their iPhones to my vehicle's Bluetooth. I'm forced to endure their Post Malone, Beyonce, etc. What ever happened to respect for their elders? I try to teach them that proper etiquette demands that the driver/owner of the vehicle has the ultimate say in the music selection, NOT the passengers, but they don't heed me.

For me, I don't hate "Hot Space" but I'm not enamored by it, either. It's tolerable.

Thanks a lot for recommendation. She listens a lot to various English nursery songs and starts to repeat the verses even she doesn't understand what she is singing about. The same goes to Queen songs. Mamma Mia mamma Mia in BoRhap was the first thing she sang :D
I really hope English will be for her as natural as her mother tongue.

Good Morning

Hope everyone obpn the thread has a great Thursday.

It's cool and drizzly here (again)

I too love Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy, I also adore Seven Seas of Rhye. Of course Somebody To Love (especially live) I'd be happy to have on permanent loop!

I love the Dragon Attack firm Montreal. That growl in Freddie's voice when he sings "Yeah, yeah, yeah" is superb. He doesn't do it so full-throated often, bit this might be dud. Either he was entirely confident in his voice that night, or it was aggression/frustration coming out in him over the whole Saul Swimmer fiasco. Whatever it was I love it.

Love all the tales of the kiddies singing along! Cute!

Missing ourThor and Lee, but apparently the boys are busy with the book so that's all good! :-)

My Little Freddies rocking chair arrived yesterday! He loves it! Gonna try to post a piccy.

Have a good Thursday, peeps!

TTFN

Doughnut there may be a Thor/Lee Back Chat story that I don't remember - but I DO remember his story about Body Language. He said they did NOT like that one and if one of them was talking too much the other would say "Don't Talk" like Freddie does in Body Language. Hee Hee I can totally picture it! They may have teased Freddie with it too, I can't remember

What is the name of Rose Rose's book please?

Get Down Make Love is sooooooo good!! That kiddo's got taste! The Milton Keyes Live at the Bowl version is STELLER! Same with that concert's version of Dragon Attack and Action This Day. Hell that whole concert is the best.

I've also been into repeated listening lately of "Stealing" - the long version. Freddie is amazing in that song imo



Hi NotQuiteashilling,

Rose Rose Book name is: LIFE, ART AND FREDDIE MERCURY 1968-70

Thanks to everyone who shared their Queen “repeat” songs. Wow…what a wide range of tunes that were mentioned.

That so many different songs were picked shows how diverse Queen’s music was. "March of the Black Queen" is also one of my repeat favorites...just love that 70's stuff. "Who Wants To Live Forever" is such a beautiful and poignant song...that's why a while back I decided to use it for my Olympic gold medal figure skating performance! LOL

Absolutely LOVED all the great stories about kids, grand kids, nieces, and nephews who like Queen music…picturing those kids singing makes me smile! You are all doing a grand job of preparing the next generation of Queenies!

Freddie was always chauffeured everywhere, so he never had that wonderful experience of singing alone in the car. Can you imagine him driving down the highway belting out Prince or Aretha songs?

Are there any Queen songs that you find difficult to sing? A couple that immediately come to mind are "Stone Cold Crazy" which is so fast I can barely keep up, and Mustapha, because of the throaty way some of the "words" are pronounced. As an English speaker, I am unaccustomed to making those sounds...but I do have a blast trying!

Rainbow, I can't begin to sing Stone Cold Crazy. Even with the lyrics right in front of me, I can't keep up. It's one of my favorites though.

Katy let us know what you think of hot space when you listen to it .
