During our recent road trip in Texas, we purchased Queen’s Greatest Hits.
The kids already know a couple of the songs from going to Dodgers games or even playing little league baseball or just being a sports fan in general. They are now officially Caleb’s favorite band. He always asks for us to “put on The Queen!” I even heard him attempting to play “We Will Rock You” and “Another One Bites the Dust” on his little drum set.
One of my new favorite activities is to play the song “Bicycle Race” in the car on the freeway while pretending to run really fast like Jim Carey did in Dumb and Dumber (“It feels like I am running at a really high rate of speed!”)
If you don’t know this song, listen to the sample at Amazon.com and try it! Debbie and the other drivers around me hate it when I do it, but the kids and I cannot stop laughing!
My favorite line from any of their songs which is sang which such hilarious, ironic hyperbole comes from “We Are the Champions (of the World).”
Freddie Mercury sings: “I consider it a challenge before the whole human race that I never lose!”
I love how grandiose and melodramatic these guys were! Even in the midst of their bragging, you cannot help but like them!
May we all have such confidence yet make people smile in the process! 🙂
