There are a lot of these on Youtube but only a few about Queen.
I found it oddly touching and it reminded me just how awesome Innuendo is...

Man, that was beautiful to watch.

I love the ones with 8 year old kids responding to old rock music too. That stuff is as real as it gets.



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

Here's the same guy taking a request to listen to Queen II.

...I'm just glad he had his eyes closed for a particular line in Black Queen.

never understood why this one is relatively unknown in Canada. maybe if they setup a single edit dropping the midsection? not that i dislike it - but for commercial appeal.

Fun.

Also 'Be free with your tempo, be free, be free'

I could sworn it was 'Free with your temple..' (as in the body is a temple).

One of the best songs they ever did....middle section, the lyrics everything was Perfect... should of been big In America, the rock station was playing it and rock fans were loving it, but for some odd reason Queen chose the Headlong as It's first single. Not a bad song but wasn't on the same level as the title track. After that, the album was never played again...and of course no Tour to promote it hurt as well.

Was huge in our Country. Number 1 Single. It is easily my favourite Queen Song.

I find it funny that the lyric video on Queen's official channel says takes that word out.

Come on guys, he's clearly saying the word. Why are you trying to pretend that he didn't?

Queen actually did want Innuendo to be the first single. The problem was that Hollywood Records, the label releasing the album in America, thought that Headlong should be the lead single because apparently those schucks didn't trust Queen's instincts. Innuendo was the lead single elsewhere.

Great album. The Show Must Go On of course is legendary, due to circumstances we are all aware of. But Innuendo and Don't Try So Hard have always been masterpieces to me as well. Especially Innuendo. I have never once heard it played here in the states on any classic radio.

Yeah, Innuendo is really amazing album at all. Tittle song, The Show Must Go On, Headlong, I'm Going Slightly Mad and Don't Try So Hard are smazony songs too. Rest of songs at the album are too really top songs. For me one of the best rock albums ever.

In case anyone is wondering 'smazony' in Polish means 'fried' :p

I've seen that video before and I liked it. Innuendo is still my favourite along with another white album. Would be nice to hear it in surround sound someday.

More or less that's how I felt when I listened to Innuendo for the first time.

It's funny because I've never really heard it like that before. To me, even in '91 I considered it a lesser song - interesting sure, but a lower tier single and almost Queen by numbers. It has really made me appreciate what I see now as a truly great song.

I have watched some of these react videos on Queen stuff. Most of these "reactors" are black americans, and many of them know "Princes of the universe" surprisingly
