Favorite song of all time " Doing All Right"
2 out of 2 Found the view helpful
I first heard Queen's first album in 1974. Around the same time I was being turned on to Ziggy Stardust and (pre Nicks) Fleetwood Mac. Loved "Future Games" and Cristie's "Show Me a Smile". Queen, however, blew me away. Queen 1 is a masterpiece of genius rock!. I beleave "Keep Your Alive" was the only radio single,but today when i talk to friends about Queen, most of them do not remember any songs from the first album. They only know of the rock icons of future releases. My friends of the 70's and I felt that Queen sold out to commercializm with their later hits, never matching the incredable rock soul and religous depth of Queen 1. The third track of this album qickley became my favorite song,not only of the album, but of all music and even now 33 years later,still my all time favorite song. Doing All Right has a perfect balance of an acoustic balled moving into a jaming hard rock song. The lyrics express a troubled past,unknown future, yet totally optimistic future! Today 5/13/07 I decided to look up the lyrics on the internet. To my surprise the first four sites I clicked on had the words all wrong! Only your site has them correct. Even the CD I had to order because no stores carry Queen 1 anymore, has the wrong words on the insert. For example "waiting for the sign" instead of sun! Thank You for getting it right.
