Ten Albums #4: Queen Greatest Hits Volumes 1 and 2

The greatest rock band of all time, period.

The genres they covered, the complexity of the music.  To even attempt something like Bohemian Rhapsody is insane.  Can you imagine trying to convince a record label to record a rock opera single?  Still, it is probably one of the most iconic songs of all times.

And these two discs are packed with the hits.  Under Pressure, Another One Bites the Dust, We Are the Champions, This Thing Called Love, Somebody to Love.  The amount of talent on display on these discs is mind blowing.

I made a comment recently that if I could have anyone's voice, I would want Freddie Mercury.  His range and control make him top of the field.  His willingness to experiment makes him excel.

This time, my favorite deep cut from the album.
