    “Another one Bites the Dust” was one of the first rock songs I remember liking as I began moving form country music to the top 40. It never gets old.Weird Al’s version, “Another one Rides the Bus” was also pretty awesome, and was just the start of his big career.I miss the days of WAPP and Dr Demento on NYC radio.

    Hey Regina.Great pick! Queen is without a doubt one of the best rock groups of all time. Extraordinary musicians and well-crafted songs that will be around as standards for a long long time. And the late Freddie Mercury was a remarkable performer.Thanks!

    Bohemian Rhapsody is a creative piece that most bands would find hard to duplicate. What a mixture of talent and insight. After reading more about the lyrics because of interest, it’s noted that there is no chorus. Yet, we know every word. That says something doesn’t it!

    Queen is apparently the group of the day! Happy OSF and great picks. I remember when Another One Bites the Dust was banging on all of the R&B stations. Them and the Clash's Rock the Casbah were the only rock and roll songs in rotation on Black radio back then.

    Another One Bites the Dust is a classic and very popular during the disco era. It had a beat that made you get out on the floor and do a little sumthin sumthin. Happy Old School Friday to you!

    Queen can jam can’t they. Another one bites the dust, I forgot all about. I use to sing the chorus when I was little. The beat is killer…

    Another One Bites the Dust—love it!When that song first was released, my friend had her Mom go pick it up at the store while we were at school…..when she got home, her Mom said, “I picked up that ‘Another One eats the dirt’ song for you” (she ‘almost’ got it right) …lol, always makes me giggle remembering that.Have a great weekend !!Vickie

    I didn’t do Queen only because they are the best of all time. I remember watching a show on them when much younger and hearing bohemian rhapsody in a concert setting.I can remember my father telling me that originally a lot of people didn’t take Queen s seriously, they were almost a joke until people started to go to their concerts and realized were no joke.

    Happy belated OSF! I lived in Detroit one year when the Detroit Lions were actually winning a bunch of games with a young running back (pre-Barry Sanders). They would play this song at the stadium after every victory … ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST! Thank you for visiting my effort to comply with the Rock song theme. I invite your blog readers to check out The BusBoys if they have time or inclinaton.peace, Villager
