Queen Songs – Top 10 List Free Download
Today, I am going to share a well-known British rock band with you.
There were more genres like hard rock and heavy metal in their earliest works.
And gradually, they combined different musical styles into their music.
According to BBC News, the band is one of the most successful UK bands of all time.
In 2005, the band has topped UK Album Charts with their first self-titled album spending 1,322 weeks on the chart.
Now, guess which band it is.
Yes, it is Queen.
Now, let’s enjoy magic Queen songs together.
10. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
“This thing called love
I just can’t handle it
This thing called love
I must get round to it
I ain’t ready”
“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” was written by Freddie Mercury, the lead vocalist of Queen. The song was released on 5 October 1979. After releasing, it topped No.1 on US Billboard Hot 100 and also No.2 on the UK Singles Chart. And its music video on YouTube has reached more than 63 million views.
Freddie Mercury wrote the song to pay tribe to Elvis Presley, king of rock and roll. You can actually find Elvis Presley style in this song, but differently. Combined sexy voice with acoustic rhythm, the song is just amazing. Come and enjoy this song below.
By the way, Maroon 5 have covered the song. If you like it, you can also download it on our website.
9. Killer Queen
“She’s a Killer Queen
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind”
“Killer Queen” was released on 21 October 1974. It reached a massive hit internationally. With its releasing, Killer Queen peaked at No.2 on the UK Singles Chart, and also ranked No.12 both on U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and U.S. Cash Box Top 100.
Killer Queen remained their gorgeous vocal harmonies. And its rhythm gives me a heart attack. I’ve got the live performance video for you. Watch the video and listen to it, you will definitely love it.
8. Who Wants To Live Forever
“Who wants to live forever?
There’s no chance for us
It’s all decided for us
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us”
“Who Wants To Live Forever” was released on 15 September 1986. It was written by Brian May, the lead guitarist of Queen. And many artists have covered this song, including Sarah Brightman. Its music video on YouTube has been over 61 million views.
Queen may be the only band that could combine opera and rock perfectly. You will be touched by the singing, especially when you watch the video. “Who wants to live forever? Forever is our today.” Yes, forever is our today. Listen to it today, and you will love the song forever.
7. Another One Bites the Dust
“Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone”
“Another One Bites the Dust” was released in 1980. After its release, it made a great success. From October 4 to 18 October 1980, the song peaked at No.1 on both US Billboard Hot 100 and Canada Top Singles. It also ranked NO.7 on the UK Singles chart. Its music video on YouTube has almost reached 154 million views.
You will be surprised by the wonderful bass in the front part, which makes bass impressive in the song. Maybe it is because the song’s writer is John Deacon, a bass guitarist, I think. Why not put on your earphones to enjoy it?
6. The Show Must Go On
“The Show must go on
I’ll face it with a grin
I’m never giving in
On with the show”
“The Show Must Go On” was released on 14 October 1991 in the UK. In charts performance, it was not so successful as some of their songs, but it also worked well. It reached No.16 on the UK Singles Chart and No.40 on US Mainstream Rock. Except that, it also ranked NO.2 on the SNEP chart in France.
The Show Must Go On was the last single by Freddie Mercury, lead vocalist of Queen, who died six weeks after the song’s release.
Every time I listen to the song, Mercury’s voice will give me power. And I love the lyric saying, the show must go on, I will face it with a grin. Hope the song will give you the courage to face the difficulties in life too.
5. We Are The Champions
“We are the champions, we are the champions
No time for losers cause we are the champions…
Of the world”
“We Are Champions” was released on 7 October 1977 and was still written by Freddie Mercury. It peaked at No.2 on the UK Singles Chart, and also No.4 on US Billboard Hot 100.
In the 1994 FIFA World Cup, We Are Champions was chosen as its official theme song. And in a 2005 Sony Ericsson world music poll, it was also ranked as the favorite song in the world.
We Are The Champion is one of my favorite songs. As its title shows, it makes listener more confident and powerful. Mercury once said that the song was written to call on audience response. And yes, it did it. I believe that, when you listen to the song, you will sing and dance to it.
4. Under Pressure
“Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure that burns a building down”
“Under Pressure” was released on 26 October 1981. David Bowie, an outstanding person in popular music, wrote the song and also participated in the recording. The song topped No.1 on many weekly charts, including UK Singles, the CHUM Chart, the Single Top 100 in Dutch, and etc.
It is definitely a magnificent song. The cooperation of Queen and Bowie is brilliant. Wonderful performances and lyrics make the song popular among people. Its official video shows people under pressure, like most of us today.
Maybe listening to the song will bring you reassurance at times of pressure. Try it.
3. We Will Rock You
“Buddy, you’re a young man, hard man
Shouting in the street, gonna take on the world someday
You got blood on your face, you big disgrace
Waving your banner all over the place”
“We Will Rock You” was written by Brian May, the lead guitarist of Queen, and was released on 7 October 1977. After its release, it became a theme song in many sports events worldwide. And in 2004, the Rolling Stone Magazine ranked it in the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
The first time I heard this song was in my high school time. I still remember that I sang the song with my dearest classmates. Miss the old days. It has been 40 years since the song released.
Hey, come and sing the song with your friends by your side. It must be your unforgettable memory in the future.
2. Don’t Stop Me Now
“Don’t stop me now I’m having such a good time
I’m having a ball
Don’t stop me now
If you want to have a good time just give me a call”
“Don’t Stop Me Now” was first released as single on 5 January 1979. It was still written by Queen’s lead vocalist Freddie Mercury. After being released, the song ranked No.9 on the UK charts and No.10 on the Ireland charts.
It also won Gold certification in Italy and Platinum both in the UK and US. Its music video on YouTube has almost reached 237 million views.
The moment I listened to this song, I was crazy for it and could not stop listening. At the beginning, you may think this is a soft lyrical ballad, but then the chorus takes you to a different musical world.
The feeling is like the lyrics saying, I’m a shooting star leaping through the sky, like a tiger defying the laws of gravity. You will say Don’t Stop Me Now if you listen to it.
1. Bohemian Rhapsody
“Mama, ooh, didn’t mean to make you cry
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters”
“Bohemian Rhapsody” is the favorite one among Queen’s fans based on the internet hit, which is beyond any doubt. Bohemian Rhapsody was released on 31 October 1975.
And then it won a great success commercially and internationally, including peaking No.1 in the charts of Australia, Canada, Netherlands and New Zealand, also ranking No.9 on US Billboard Hot 100.
It is said that the production cost of Bohemian Rhapsody was the highest at the time. And it is an unusual single. You will find there is no chorus in the song, but it contains many different genres, like progressive pop and hard rock.
Maybe it is a song that cannot be surpassed, I think. It deserves listening. You will love it, I bet.
That’s all of the today’s sharing.
