UNDEREXPOSED QUEEN

1

Maybe, like me, you're not aware of these lesser-known Queen titbits -

2

Stone Cold Crazy a hidden gem? I guess I know Queen too well.

I was expecting.... Death on Two Legs

Ogre Battle

Modern Times Rock N Roll

Seven Sea's of Rhye

Great King Rat

Those would have been my initial guesses. Cool tidbits of info in the video though.

Thanks. I'm on a voyage of discovery. (Er, that's "titbits", Dave.)

In Oz, perhaps. However...

In American and Canadian English, tidbit is the preferred spelling of the noun referring to (1) a choice morsel or (2) a pleasing bit of something. Titbit is preferred everywhere else. Neither spelling is right or wrong. Titbit is older, but tidbit is etymologically justifiable (the first syllable likely comes from the archaic colloquialism tid, meaning tender). And tidbit is not so new itself; it was well established in American English by the early 1800s.

All in fun, Deed, but I stand corrected - if only in America.

Actually, I think we all learned something, that’s always a good thing. ;)

Two of my all-time faves in that clip. "I'm In Love With My Car" and "Dragon Attack"

Hey Jeffed! Did you give those others a listen? Just curious.

12

Not yet. Been busy. But I will now that you're cattle-prodding me.

Death on Two Legs - rocky distilled hatred half-finished 8/10

Ogre Battle - slow start deserved to die on drawing board 5/10

Modern Times Rock N Roll - RT crap even FM couldn’t save from oblivion 2/10

Seven Sea's of Rhye - MercuryMay instrumentals & harmonies cut short 4/10

Great King Rat - Freddie rock operetta could’ve been way betta 3/10

Woah, sorry. Thought you liked Queen?

Didn't mean to waste your time.

16

Waste of time? Far from it. I love Queen. But I hold them to a high standard, dave. Sorry if I came across a bit prickly.

17

Not at all. I just got caught up in the whole "Underexposed" theme.

We're good.
