Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigd Koninkrijk

De muzikale veelzijdigheid is kenmerkend voor deze band. De harmonieën en de interessante gelaagdheid in de arrangementen zijn wereldwijd bekend. Ook de krachtige liveoptredens van Queen maken altijd grote indruk op het publiek.

Hun debuut hit is Killer Queen. Met dit nummer komen ze voor het eerst in de Top 40. Ze staan 11 weken genoteerd en bereiken de derde plaats. In 1975 scoren ze met Bohemian Rhapsody hun eerste nummer 1 hit. Dit nummer keert in 1991 terug in de Top 40.


Queen groeit uit tot één van de meest succesvolle bands aller tijden en scoort maar liefst 6 nummer 1-hits.


In 1991 overlijdt Mercury aan een longontsteking, een gevolg van de ziekte Aids. John Deacon trekt zich steeds meer terug en stopt uiteindelijk met de band. De overige leden gaan verder. Zo brengen eerdere hits opnieuw uit met o.a. George Michael, Five en Paul Rodgers. In 2008 scoren ze hun 46e Top 40 hit. Sinds 2011 verzorgt Adam Lambert de vocalen die sindsdien Queen vergezeld op tournee.

In 2014 brengt Queen het album Queen Forever uit. Het album is een mix van niet eerder uitgebrachte “vergeten” nummers, eerder uitgebrachte nummers en een duet tussen Mercury en de in 2009 overleden Michael Jackson.


In 2018 verschijnt de film Bohemian Rhapsody in de bioscoop rond Queen en leadzanger Freddie Mercury. Het zorgt er 43 jaar na de release voor dat het nummer Bohemian Rhapsody opnieuw volledig in de schijnwerpers staat.

Are you ready?!
Hey!

Are you hangin' on the edge of your seat?!

[Wyclef]:
I need a break beat!

[Freddy Mercury]:
Are you ready?!
Hey!

Are you hangin' on the edge of your seat?!

[Wyclef]:

[Freddy Mercury]:
Are you ready?!
Hey!

Are you hangin' on the edge of your seat?!

[Wyclef]:

[Freddy Mercury]:
Outta the doorway, the bullets rip!!!
Repeat to the sound of the beat! HEY!!!

(Chorus [Wyclef & Freddy Mercury in parentheses]):
Yo...a-for the kids in the club that's ready to get bugged!
(Another One Bites The Dust!)
A-for the thugs with the burners, that wanna blast off!
(Another One Bites The Dust!)
And for the kids on the blocks, shootin' at the crooked cops, BLAOW!!
(Another One Bites The Dust!)
(And another one down, and another one down
Another One Bites The Dust, Hey!)
Wyclef, Dirty Cash, Young Free...Freddy, where you at?

((?) Drug Dealers (?) down the street, with the brim pulled way down low!)


Some cat up in Brooklyn just got robbed with a Kangol! (In tune with F.
Mercury)
(Are you ready?!
Hey!
Are you ready for this?!
Are you hangin' on the edge of your seat?!
Out of the doorway, the bullets rip!!!
Repeat to the sound of the beat! HEY!!!
My man got shot, and the block got hot!
(Another One Bites The Dust!)
Yo, hey yo I hear more shots, it's like Fort Knox kid!
(Another One Bites The Dust!)
Yo, Hold your breath...Hold your breath...Hold your breath...Yo, CHECK IT!!!
(And another one down, and another down, Another One Bites The Dust!)

[Wyclef]:
If you're a soldier at ease
My military style is known to murder Nazi's, Brooklyn to Germany (Come on)
My kamikaze will blow the U2, they hire Idi Amin in Timbuktu
Whether you indo, or do the Voodoo
You can't foresee this unless I bring the previews, HEY!!! HEY!!!
Yo, it's the number one rappin' band! (Come on, come on)
Yo...This review, will be critically acclaimed
Leave you in critical pain, clinically insane
The name Wyclef Jean, with a yes, yes y'all!
Better have a vest y'all! I'll blast, and bless y'all!
"F"- y'all, the mark of the beast, the triple six
Time running out, listen to the tick!
If you see what I saw, then you seen what I seen, If you know what I know,
You know what I mean!
Commanding officer of the Navy SEAL team
Once I give the orders, you feel the infrared beam....BLAOW!!!

(Chorus [Wyclef]):
For all you critics, sayin' "another remake!"
(Another One Bites The Dust!)
Yo, If you know the deal, this is the master real, kid! Ha Ha!
(Another One Bites The Dust!)
Right! Right! Freddy Mercury, where you at yo?!
(And another one down, and another one down, Another One Bites The Dust!)
(HOW DO YOU THINK I'M GONNA GET ALONG, WITHOUT YOU WHEN YOU'RE GONE!!!)
I need a break beat!

Yo if you're ready for the first of the month, for that welfare check, come
on!
(GET ME OUTTA MY HOME!!!) I need a break beat!

(ARE YOU HAPPY?!! ARE YOU SATISFIED?!!! HOW LONG CAN YOU STAND THE
HEAT!!!??) I need a break beat!

(OUTTA THE DOORWAY, THE BULLETS RIPPA!!! TO THE SOUND OF THE BEAT!)

Yo! Bulletproof vests, like the wild wild west
(Another One Bites The Dust!)

Yo! This is a stickup, now take off your Rolex!
(Another One Bites The Dust!)

Yo! Dirty money, good money, yo it's all money-money!
(Another One Bites The Dust!)

Yo! Dirty Cash! Dirty Cash! The adventures of Dirty Cash!
(And another one down, and another one down, Another One Bites The Dust!)

[Prakazrel]:
Yo, for the love for the cash I'll blast you in my path!!!
Keep my eyes on the math, you cats don't know the half!
As far as I'm concerned, you cats can burn in flames
This ain't no game!!! I'm-a start callin' names!
So come get me, if you know the one-fifty
A million Refugees ready to bust wit' me!
Bloody, filthy, in this rap shhh---!
You gonna have to kill me, since you can't beat me!!!
Pras! Dirty! Cash! You're the greedy!
Believe me! God'll let me fly, like R. Kelly!
Bite another dust with my man Freddy Mercury!
What height nineties got ya cash, wannabe CRAZY!!!

[Free]:
Practically, I tactically destroy
Deploy more decoys than a presidential convoy
My whole envoy stay camouflaged out
And when I walk the street, I take the Refugee route
This one go out to all my thugs in the borough
So just stay thorough, like Kilamanjaro
Split it with an arrow, my girl platoon roll
Outta control, the female mandingos!
Free! I evolve from the egg of a seminarian
Don't go down, 'cause I'm a vegetarian!
And when I bust, it ain't in God we trust
and if you bring a gun, you better bring a black tusk!

(Chorus [Wyclef]):
She looked into my eyes and said F-B-I!!!
(Another One Bites The Dust!)
She said she loved me, she was a spy who lied!!!
(Another One Bites The Dust!) Right!
I could relate...could you relate?
(Another One Bites The Dust!)

Jerry "Wonder", The Product (Male singer from The Product, keys a vocal note)
{Don't you know we coming for yo?!} Yo, Canibus, John Forte', (Another One
Bites The Dust!)
Yo, Dirty Cash, and baby Free! (Another One Bites The Dust!)
Wyclef Jean, Freddy Mercury! Ha-ha! I'm out baby!
(And another one down, and another one down, another one bites the dust!)

N A V Y S E A L S!!!!!!!!

(Another One Bites The Dust!)

(Another One Bites The Dust!)
