Nearly every one of us has memories of great songs from the legendary rock group Queen, one of the dominant acts of the 1970s and ’80s (and of which Astronomy Editorial Advisory Board member Brian May was lead guitarist). Whether they be from sitting in a stadium hearing the pounding rhythm of “We Will Rock You,” listening to the iconic charm and fury of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” or witnessing the incredible vocal mastery displayed in the gospel-inspired “Somebody to Love,” we all have Queen memories. Here are my favorites, counting down from #10 to #1. (Also check out numbers 20 to 11.) Enjoy!
