1977 : Queen live on A Day At The Races Tour at Dane County Coliseum, Madison, USA. [44 years]
1989 : BBC Radio 1 organised phone public inquiry for best Queen song. Bohemian Rhapsody placed 1st, A Kind Of Magic 2nd and I Want To Break Free 3rd. It was the biggest phone public inquiry ever organised by BBC. [32 years]
1991 : Innuendo (with Bijou on b-side) was released as 37th Queen single in the UK. US Hollywood Records, feared that song with length over 6 minutes wouldn't been played by the radio stations, chose Headlong for their release for the next day. Innuendo in UK hit first place in the charts almost immediately and it was also third Queen song, which reached no. 1 (together with Bohemian Rhapsody and Under Pressure). But week later Innuendo was uncrowned by Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter by Iron Maiden. Excellent animated videoclip was made for Innuendo, even with no new shoots of the band. Due to Persian Gulf war first version of the video with war scenes had to be 'censured' and replaced with different scenes in the middle. [30 years] http://qph.runoutgrooves.com/singles/q38i.shtml
