    For the record, Don't Stop Me Now is not only my #1 most wanted song in Rock Band (and has been since the day I started at Harmonix), it is also one of man's greatest works of art, right up there with the Mona Lisa, the Eiffel Tower and the milkshake.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this statement that which was made by you.

    Although, no I Was Born to Love You?! :(

    Mine too, and I will be purchasing it (at the very least). I may just bite and get the whole pack.

    Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time! I'm having a ball!!!!

    Every time I hear that, I think of beating zombies with pool cues.

    Indeed! Great movie, even greater song. I'm right there with Henry, it is one of man's greatest achievements.

    With that said, the pack is all mine on Tuesday. Awesome, just completely awesome!

    I must admit I can't stand "Radio GaGa", but I won't buy just the other singles this time (as I did to avoid "We Didn't Start the Fire). Thanks for the 1-lighter filter!!!

    Wow, that's a really, really great set of songs, keyboard players are going to go crazy for Seven Seas of Rhye :) . Which albums will we have album listings for now? I make that 3 tracks off of A Night At The Opera, with I'm In Love With My Car and You're My Best Friend joining Bohemian Rhapsody.

    Now this I did not expect. Very happy... I love the idea of discography-spanning showings on RB. Queen really are just a great band for Rock Band.

    Still would have liked to have seen Ogre Battle, but I'm thinking every deity I know that we didn't get "Body Language".

    Ok I'll buy 4 songs. I'd liked "A Kind of magic" and "Good Old fashioned lover boy"...

    Excellent pack. Never heard Long Away before, thanks for the intro.

    You're My Best Friend and Don't Stop Me Now have been my most anticipated songs for a long time, that I knew would realistically appear.

    Congrats on a wonderful pack!!

    Yet another Queen pack, and no "Princes Of The Universe". My heart...it breaks. :(


    Ah, well. At least this pack includes "The Show Must Go On". It's in the top 5 of my favorite Queen songs to sing along to when I listen to it.


    Edit: Holy crap! Just re-read and saw "I'm In Love With My Car". Roger Taylor on vocals for the mother-f'n WIN!!

    Great pack, but I still have about a dozen Queen tracks I'm waiting for.

    Pack 03 (in several months, of course), please.~

    I feel the same way. If they continue to release a big Queen pack each year, I may just end up with all the songs I want eventually. These songs are awesome for now though!

    A nine pack at that. Oh well, maybe next time. Queen seems determined to catch up to Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam, so keep 'em coming!

    I'm going to try so hard for #1 on Vocals with "The Show Must Go On". I love Seven Seas of Rhye and Don't Stop Me Now, but Show is probably my favorite non-Bohemian-Rhapsody Queen song. I'll probably break down in the middle of singing though. Whenever I hear the song I can't help thinking of the fact that Freddie wrote and performed "The Show Must Go On" while he was in the late stages of AIDS related illness. So sad.

    Agreed.

    Great choices but where's princes of the universe?

    Still, getting it all.

    So Queen Pack 3 next year will have no excuse not to have Princes of the Universe, Too Much love can kill you, Get down make love, and who wants to live forever :D

    Awesome week once again!

    Best week in a long time.

    Got married 4 months ago and our first dance was to "You're My Best Friend". Can't wait to play that one with the wife.

    Glad we are getting more Queen, but I agree on the Highlander stuff being needed. I also want INNUENDO!!!!!!!!
