Shane McDonald – Keyboards Audition for Queen Extravaganza
I have uploaded my keyboards Audition for Queen Extravaganza to YouTube. I don’t being in Ireland they would accept my entry into the USA version of the Queen Extravaganza contest but nevertheless I recorded one anyway just to take part in some shape or form, online. My keyboards version of I Want to break Free is below and I might add a few more to this collection and this post in the coming weeks. Hopefully Queen Extravaganza will come to Europe / UK at some point in the future and I can submit a european Audition for Queen Extravaganza. I would love to take part in a more serious nature with Queen Extravaganza. Let me know what you think!

I often get asked, how do you play the piano chords of G# or two do you play DMaj7th? Well, I have a personal site on the same domain as Shane’s Queen Site. On that site I have a music section and one of the tools is called the Piano Chordmap which is basically How do I play piano Chords in a graphical way.

Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts for Shane’s Queen Site
I just wanted to make a blog post outlining Shane’s Queen Site on Social Media and were you can find this site. Taking Social Media on board I have setup a Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts for Shane’s Queen Site.
Shane’s Queen Site Facebook Page
The Facebook Page is probably the most updated social media profile for the site. 90% of content which is posted here will also be mirrored on the Twitter account.
Top 100 Queen Songs of 2007 : As voted by web site visitors
These are the Top 100 Queen songs as voted using the Top Songs form on queen.shanemcdonald.org. The votes were cast between Jan 1st 2007 and Dec 31st 2007.
As can be expected Bohemian Rhapsody topped the poll but when compared to the 2006 Results the biggest moves were Seven Seas of Rhye up 7 from last year and Breakthru dropped from 18th to 27th position in the poll. The system will be reset in the coming days to see if 2008 has a similar result.
These are the top 50 Queen songs as voted on the Hot or Not vote, on Shane’s Queen Site. The votes were cast between March 1st 2005 and December 31st 2005.
As can be expected Bohemian Rhapsody topped the poll, with the Top 10 looking like a Greatest Hits Lineup. This system will be reset and a further Top 50 (or possibly Top 100) will be constructed for 2006.
