What is Queen’s Top Voted Song of 2018?

What is Queen’s Top Voted Song of 2018?

A Top Queen Songs Poll was run on this site over the past 12 months. Website visitors were asked to pick from a short list in 6 groups, the top 3 songs from each group then qualified for a final round of voting to determine what is Queen’s Top Voted Song of 2018?

Overall there were over 1,000 votes cast in this Top Queen Songs poll. The IP addresses and cookies limited the possibility of people voting twice. Therefore, I believe that this result stands up in light of what Queen songs visitors to this website prefer. There were over 190 songs I could have chosen for the initial shortlist but I used the results of the 2008 poll, which included this long-list, to prune the initial group stage down to about 50 songs, the final group had about 20.

The results of the Top Queen Songs Poll 2018 

So what is the Top Queen song? Well in reverse order the Top 10 Queen songs as voted by visitors to Shane’s Queen Site are as follows;

5. Innuendo (Innuendo)

4. Love of My Life (A Night at the Opera)

3. The Show Must Go On (Innuendo)

2. Somebody To Love (A Day at the Races)

1. Bohemian Rhapsody (A Night at the Opera)

Not surprisingly Bohemian Rhapsody tops the Top Queen Songs Poll with 15% of the Final Poll vote. This is in line with every previous Top Queen Songs poll which has run on this site since 2006. 60% of the songs were from the 1970s which may show that people tend to enjoy the rock and grandeur of the earlier albums.

Ths Top Queen Songs Poll will be reset in mid-January for 2019 with a new format which will hopefully shed more light on which Queen songs the public like. Don’t forget to bookmark this site and revisit soon to vote in the new Queen poll.

The final poll results are shown below with the percentages of the Top 10.

Bohemian Rhapsody Wins 2 Golden Globes and Oscars are next

Bohemian Rhapsody Wins 2 Golden Globes and Oscars are next

At the Golden Globes last evening Rami Malek won the Golden Globe for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. The Bohemian Rhapsody Movie also won in the best film drama category.

When accepting his award, Rami Malek, who portrayed Freddie Mercury in the biopic, said: “Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime. This is for you, gorgeous.”

The Bohemian Rhapsody Movie was a surprise win, as the favourite, A Star Is Born, starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper​ was​ tipped to win the top award. In fact, A Star is Born had 5 nominations and only went home with one, winning the best song award for Shallow, co-written by Mark Ronson. Bohemian Rhapsody won both awards it was nominated for and now looks towards the Oscars for more potential awards.

The Nominations for the 2019 Oscars will be announced on January 22nd. 

Brian May and Roger Taylor were in attendance at the awards ceremony and I’m sure if Freddie was there it would have been quite a flamboyant affair.

The Bohemian Rhapsody film goes from strength to strength and who knows, the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild award wins may not be the last.

The film is still showing in theatres ad this week, (week starting 7th Jan) in the UK & Ireland there is a sing-a-long version of Bohemian Rhapsody in select cinemas which should be fun for all Queen fans to attend.
