Music I want my children to listen to...HRH

I am delighted to host this weeks 'Music I want my children to listen too. After the success of last weeks post from the lovely Ghostwritermummy and Alexanderresidence and many many lovely others joining in.

I have decided this week to ask my OH what he would like our children to listen too, and his first choice was the 'Rolling Stones'. I am not too familiar with the Iconic Rolling Stones, so we moved to ....

 this Great British rock band

Queen are the ultimate British rock band, thrashing out songs with fantastic scores, exquisite voices, and beautiful lyrics. I have found the more I listen to Queen, the more respect I have for this great band.

In fact I might go even as far as to say this song below could be in my top 20 songs of all time,

This is such a catchy uplifting fun song - My 4 year old loves it and is twirling and whirling to it as I write this!

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

                                                          It comes from this album 'Jazz'.

My OH favourite Queen album is 'The Game' with notable songs such as 'Another one bites the dust' and 'Crazy little thing called love'

Queen have been heavily influenced by new bands such as
Ben folds five
Robbie Williams
The Killers

Very impressive stats!
What I like about Queen is that, their songs are timeless and after all this time can still get me tapping my feet!
The mixture of rock, and the link to different genres such as ragtime, opera (Still enjoy the 'Barcelona' song from the Olypmics), gospel and folk are what make Queen, The music I would like my 'Children to listen to!

  1. I love Queen as well. I would like them to listen to anything from the 1960s which was a golden era - Beatles, Elvis etc.....but , they don't and they won't - they have their own music!
