Name That Tune

Hi everyone, Katie here.

The production of my upcoming music video has had me a little tied up. Don't worry, no rope was involved. In the meantime I thought it would be fun to give you a few clues. See if anyone is smart enough to...


Era: Mid-70's

Sales: 3rd best selling single in UK of all time

Top of the Charts Factoids:
  • When released, the song stayed at the top of the UK Singles charts for 9 weeks.
  • 15 years later, after the death of one of the band members, it again reached #1 on the UK Singles charts. This time for 5 weeks.
  • The next year, the song reached #2 on the US charts after being featured in a popular movie.

Do I sound like Casey Kasem yet?

What makes it unique?
  • The song has no chorus section.
  • But it has everything else - a ballad, a guitar solo, a hard rock section....even a little opera thrown in.

From my guitar solo.

I also get to play the piano.

Did I mention that I dance the Fandango?

Now again I must insist that you do not ask your friend, Mr. Google, for help. If you can't stand it and decide to cheat, just don't give it away.

On your marks.
Get set.


  1. Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen!! AWESOME

    Brenda, Boots, & Ozzie

  2. Gosh Golly Me knew it had to be my 2nd favorite Queen song!

  3. Before looking at the comments (didnt want to cheat in case anyone else said it) I knew I could sing it in my head, and I did... hee hee but the title escaped me! So I looked, MOL But I didn't use mr google!

  4. Well it has to be Queen!! But I accidentally saw the comments!!! ;)

    Can’t wait for Katie’s Fandango!

  5. WOW! Someone guessed it right away!
    Actually we had no idea and were going to tell you that, but now that we know what it is, we can't wait!!

  6. Very good!!!


  7. WOW Katie. Next thing you know you will be a movie start or on Broadway. You go girl!

  8. yep we knew it too!!! Katie you love your Queen!! We must say that blue is quite a becoming color to feature you too!

  9. Like Andrea, we were singing the song but couldn't think of the title. Glogirly must've been a Queen groupie. Heh heh. Can I be in it? Pluuuu-leeezzze?

  10. My human did not have to do any Googling - she knew it right away. Of course someone already guessed by the time we got here, oh well!

  11. Conga Rats to those who guessed so quickly. My human is SO lame about song titles and groups - she had to go to You Tube and listen to it, and then of course she did remember the song, but not before that. We look forward to seeing your music video when it si finished, Glogirly and Katie!

  12. I wouldn't have gotten it any, but I think I will like your version better!

  13. Mum knew it straight away - they were one of her very favourite groups.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  14. Hi Katie...OMC Mom and I don't have a clue...and it could be because she is older than dirt. MOL Don't tell her I said that!! What a great post and you are so talented.
    Hugs Madi

  15. We guessed it right away! Well maybe not us, but our mum did because she LOVES Queen.

  16. Oh rats...we are late arriving here but mom told me right away it must be Bohemian Rhapsody...because...well she used to sing it at the top of her lungs while driving in the car with her high school the 70's. She's SO OLD!



  17. I have no idea, but I love seeing pictures of you performing.



Thank you so much for your comment. We LOVE hearing from you!
