Queen is back one last time on the list with A Night At The Opera. Some critics have called it their magnum opus. I have never heard this album, except for a couple of singles released on the radio.
Probably my favourite song from Queen is “You’re My Best Friend“. I have always wanted a best friend. It is the one thing I have never been able to get in this life. I thought I had one twice, maybe three times, but it never panned out. As you get older, you realise that it is something you cannot get. It becomes a fantasy and never a reality. I will never have a best friend. Everyone has a best friend, but somehow I missed the best friend boat. My chance did not really come. I will die alone.
The other iconic song on the album is “Bohemian Rhapsody“. Everyone knows this song. It is world famous, especially now that there is a film with the title.
Other songs to consider listening to are “‘39“, “Seaside Rendezvous“, “Love of My Life“, and the Dixieland sounds of “Good Company“.
The album is diverse in musical styles. Freddie Mercury seemed to be all over the place musically. That is great for a musician, but not as much for fans. People tend to want their musicians to play the same music. 9.3/10.
