Updated on September 14, 2012

Queen - Music Hits Producers

Here you can listen to some best Queen songs, but first let me tell you something about the band. Queen was an extremely famous rock band that was formed in United Kingdom in the year 1971. The band had Freddie Mercury as the lead singer or vocalist, you can find out more about Freddie Mercury movie here. Brian May was the lead guitarist, John Deacon for responsible for bass guitar and vocalist and Roger Taylor used to play drums. It must be kept in mind that the band's earlier works were highly subjective to progressive rock. The band used to compose and play rock music in the form of progressive rock. Queen band was very popular in US, UK, Canada, Australia and in fact all over the world. With the passage of time, the band gradually transformed into a more radio-friendly and conventional mode. On the other hand, the band integrated innovative and diverse styles in their lyrics, music and rock shows. However, before joining the band, both Roger Taylor and Brian May used to play together in a rock band known as "Smile".

The band Queen formed in late 1970’s composed several hits that became a rage almost in every corner of the world. The band actually sold 32 million records in United States alone. The band was among the best in the world during 1970s-1980’s. “I want to break free” was a wonderful song composed and sung by Freddie Mercury.

Queen live at Wembley 1986

This could be the best concert ever. So much energy and lots of perfect songs.

At the Wembley Stadium shows, this marvelous show integrated the biggest lighting arrangement ever gathered for a spectacular live show. The overall weight of the lighting rig was 9 ½ tons. The entire stage was the biggest ever erected in United Kingdom and it measured 165 ft wide and 55 feet high from the ground level. The massive lights actually enhanced the overall setting and background of the stage quite dramatically. The full stage was able to fill one complete end of Wembley Stadium. On the other hand, it was very heavy that additional supports had to be taken in the concrete foundation of the Wembley Stadium. However, the second show was broadcasted by Tyne Tees Television and the band performed hits one after another like “We will rock you”, ““We Are the Champions Of the World”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Killer Queen” and other wonderful singles. The show was a huge hit among the viewers.

About The Author

I have chosen to set up a website dedicated to Queen who I feel are one of the most influential rock bands of the 21st Century. My father was 18 when Queen released their first single and from that date he had followed them like no other band. I was born lately but I love their stuff.

Although Bohemian Rhapsody will remain a favorite with me there are plenty of songs that were produced by them. For me no band before or after Queen even with the death of their lead singer Freddie Mercury has played such an instrumental part of my life.

Even 30 years on from when my father first saw the band in concert I have been mesmerized by what they are capable of doing. There are groups today who seem to try to imitate this amazing band without little or no success. Even when other singers have joined the band after Freddie’s death things have never been the same.

      This is a lens matching my taste. Anyway - there's a failure on it in my eyes - one song is missing - You Don't Fool Me...
