I never knew in my younger years until much later that Queen songs from The Game were played on a jukebox in my Aunt's restaurant. When I found out it was Queen who was behind Coming Soon, Rock It/Prime Jive, I was absolutely floored. Kinda like when I found dead out Queen was behind Crazy Little Thing and not Elvis.Jake wrote: ↑Wed May 13, 2020 9:29 pmBefore my local rock radio station here in the US started including 90’s and 00’s songs a while back in their format, Need Your Loving Tonight was occasionally played. Now with so much other stuff being played, they keep it to big hits. A shame.action wrote: ↑Mon May 11, 2020 12:37 pm "need your loving " is a very underrated song, could easily have been a single.
I dislike the usual drivel, such as the start of PTG. I think PTG is actually overrated. I think it's not a great song, there is something off with the tempo changes. I usually go straight into the second song.
I don't like the album very much. It's not rocking enough, nor is it poppy enough. It's something of both, but in both cases not good enough.
I prefer AKOM over this, if I'm honest
I think Play The Game is great. I love the intro. In fact, it’s one of my earliest Queen-related memories... hearing that intro and then Freddie singing the track. I heard that sound it and it was something I found fascinating, but I didn’t learn about Queen until years later. Never forgot that intro... my favorite song.
And yes, this was long before the days of the internet .
Amazing the memories the songs on this album brings back, and I wasn't even a fan at the time.
My only quibbles about the album is that it's too short and I don't like the album cover much.
