Listen to it Loud Hall of Fame — Third Inductee

One of my first favorite bands was Queen.  The safe bet here would be that I’m going to pick Bohemian Rhapsody for their selection into my Listen to it Loud Hall of Fame.  But I’m not.  That’s a no-brainer.  Who doesn’t listen to that song at full volume.  There are a lot of songs that should be considered.  All Dead, All Dead; Bohemian Rhapsody; Don’t Stop Me Now; Fat-Bottomed Girls; Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy; The Prophet’s Song; Somebody to Love; Teo Torriate; You Take My Breath Away.  And more.

My selection is The Millionaire Waltz.  Much like Bohemian Rhapsody, it’s somewhat operatic — a sound unique to Queen.  I’m not sure anybody else has ever quite produced the combination of vocals, piano, guitars and sound.  They perform some incredible songs.  Here’s the studio version.  And a live version.
