Posted in 101 #1 Song of The Day
Freddie was one of the leading clowns of rock and roll known for his stage antics. This particular song was a big hit in Great Britain 2 years before it arrived here in the states. The British invasion was in full swing though so once they got here they had an instant hit. In a twist, it was released by their previous record label which wanted to cash in on what they still had rights to. The group had signed with a new label which arranged the U.S. tour (Capitol); the old label, Tower was the label this song was released by and it was their biggest hit ever.
