Last week, with a twenty five euro voucher to spend at any of the many Golden Discs branches nationwide, we asked you to name the finest moment by bombastic prog popsters Queen.
You answered in your dozens.
But there could be only one winner.
In reverse order then…
Queen – Bicycle Race

“Bicycle Race because: ‘You say coke, I say Caine/ you say John, I say Wayne”’ and it manages to mention Fat Bottomed Girls, which is my second favourite Queen song.”
Queen – Flash
While not a massive Queen fan, I believe their greatest moment was Flash owing to its even-more-wildly-over-the-top-than-usual performance for the soundtrack of the kid’s film Flash, together with bizarre lines from the film such as “Despatch war rocket Ajax to bring back his body!”.
Queen – Who Wants To Live Forever
While not a massive Queen fan, I believe their greatest moment was when I was at a house party in somewhere around 2007 and my mate Gary leapt from a stairs onto a table during the crescendo of Who Wants To Live Forever off Live At Wembley ’86 (possibly the greatest live album of all time), whereupon the table broke throwing Gary forward right into a wall knocking him out owing to its unparalleled comic perfection
Queen – Love Of My Life (Live)
While not a massive Queen fan, I believe their greatest moment was ‘Love Of My Life’ from the Live Killers album. a song Freddie wrote for Mary Austin. imagine you and your engaged are in the process of splitting up and a stadium full of people are singing a song you wrote for her back to you? what a gut-wrencher…
Queen – The March of The Black Queen
While not a massive Queen fan, I believe their greatest moment was The March of the Black Queen owing to its lyrics, guitar, choir and awesomeness. This is Bohemian Raphsody’s big sister, possibly the best song by Queen…
Queen – Live Aid full concert
While not a massive Queen fan, I believe their greatest moment was Live Aid owing to its being the best live performance of any band in the history of rock music, except for possibly Queen’s stand alone gig in the same arena the following year. Even today its still an incredible performance to watch; energy, charisma, crowd engagement. Freddie at his finest.
