          So Officially according to the RIAA You're My Best Friend becomes Queen's 4th Platinum Single in America thanks to impressive Digital sales, my question to HUR and other Queen experts is 'Which single could be the next to go Platinum?' Surely combined sales of CLTCL should mean that has sales in excess of 1 million and perhaps Under Pressure and Fat Bottomed Girls are long overdue new certification?

          If anyone has up to date USA digital sales for Queen's most popular tracks it would be great to see

          • Queen On Air

            The Complete BBC Radio Sessions



            Available as 2-CD set and 3-LP set

            Collector’s Edition 6-CD set with added live concert broadcasts and radio interviews

            Released globally November 4 on Virgin EMI. Hollywood Records for North America.

            “I heard it on my radio”

            Queen’s meteoric ascendancy during the 1970s has been well documented. From their gloriously ambitious self-titled debut album of 1973 through to the album that put them in the superstar bracket, 1975’s A Night At The Opera, and beyond, this unique group carved out a singular path as the most visionary, inventive and charismatic band of that epic decade.

            But there is another side to Queen’s rise that has been largely overlooked. Between February 1973 and October 1977, the band recorded six radio sessions exclusively for the BBC. The twenty four recordings these landmark sessions produced include alternate versions of the debut single, unique takes of classic album tracks and even a radically reworked reimagining of one of their best known anthems that has never previously appeared on any Queen studio release.

            Now, for the very first time, all six Queen BBC sessions - meticulously restored by Queen engineer Kris Fredriksson and mastered by Grammy Award winner Adam Ayan - have been brought together on Queen On Air, released on November 4 by Virgin EMI. North America through Hollywood Records. Available as a 2-CD set and a 3-LP vinyl edition, plus a Deluxe 6-disc edition featuring a CD of live broadcasts and 3 CDs of radio interviews, Queen On Air is an essential addition for connoisseurs of the band.

            Queen On Air is more than just a collection of rare recordings – it is a glorious snapshot of the growth of a legend.

            Queen’s very first session for the BBC, which opens Queen On Air, dates from February 1973, five months before the release of the band’s debut album and single. Imagine that you are listening to the radio in early 1973; no-one in the world has heard any Queen recordings EVER! John Peel plays My Fairy King, the very first Queen song to be broadcast on radio anywhere, and the story begins. He follows with Keep Yourself Alive (the song which later became their first single), the laidback Doing All Right and the epic rock operetta Liar – all of which serve notice of the arrival of a major new musical force.

            The band returned to the BBC for their second session in July 1973, the same month their debut album was released. Revisiting Keep Yourself Alive and Liar, this time they also covered the heavy-as-lead Son And Daughter and the bluesy See What A Fool I’ve Been. The latter, which has never appeared on any Queen studio album, would later be re-recorded and become the B-side of their breakthrough hit single Seven Seas Of Rhye in 1974.

            By the time Queen recorded their third BBC session in December 1973, they had already begun work on their second album, Queen II (eventually released in March 1974). The band premiered a new song which would feature on that album, Ogre Battle, alongside three classics from its predecessor, the galloping Great King Rat, the Roger Taylor-sung Modern Times Rock’n’Roll and a new version of Son And Daughter. Two more Queen II songs were recorded during a subsequent session in April 1974 – the epic White Queen (As It Began) and the delicate ballad Nevermore, alongside a re-recorded Modern Times Rock’n’Roll.

            Queen’s penultimate session for the BBC took place in October 1974, a month before the release of their classic third album, Sheer Heart Attack. The session saw the debut of four songs from that record: the dazzling Now I’m Here, the proto-heavy metal attack of Stone Cold Crazy, the caustic Flick Of The Wrist and Tenement Funster, their celebration of the rock’n’roll lifestyle.

            It would be another three years before Queen returned to the BBC for their sixth and final session, by which time the success of Bohemian Rhapsody had turned them into a global phenomenon.

            On October 28th 1977, they recorded some radically different versions of four songs from the brand new News Of The World album, on the same day as it was given its UK release: the epic power ballad Spread Your Wings, the steel-plated rocker It’s Late, the dusky jazz number My Melancholy Blues and two significantly contrasting renditions of the global hit We Will Rock You – the ‘regular’ version and the ‘fast’ version, a full-tilt guitar-heavy take on the song. The accelerated version on Queen On Air is the only known studio recording of this live favourite. “’We Will Rock You’ – profundity or just another teenage anthem!?”, remarks John Peel on playing the track. Peel is the person who famously once said (on air) of the band, “I’ve never seen them live. I must admit I’d like to – a band that sounds like nutters, actually, and I like that because I like rock music to sound a little out of control.”

            To complete the full picture, the 6-CD Deluxe Edition includes Queen Live On Air – a single disc featuring highlights of three live concert broadcasts: Queen live at the Golders Green Hippodrome, from September 1973, their first concert to be transmitted on radio anywhere in the world. Also, Queen performing in Brazil at Sao Paulo’s gigantic Morumbi stadium to a record-setting audience of 131,000 originally relayed live on radio and TV in March 1981 on the Badeirantes network during the band’s infamous South America Bites The Dust tour. Finally, Queen’s penultimate live concert radio broadcast. Aired less than four weeks before their last show with Freddie, this was a live emission from the show in Mannheim Germany, in June 1986 during the mighty Magic Tour.

            The set further offers a captivating selection of radio interviews with both the whole band and the individual members at various points between 1976 and 1992. Queen On Air: The Interviews (3 CDs) delivers a compelling three and a half hour distillation of revealing encounters recorded for the BBC and Capital Radio in London between 1976-1992.

            Spanning 220 minutes, the seventeen interviews represent significant landmarks in the Queen story. Talking with some of Britain’s best known broadcasters and presenters, the band reflect on various moments in their musical history, influences and aspirations, and provide some memorable quotes, such as Roger Taylor’s now famous description of Queen’s 1984 Works tour as having “more lights and spectacle than the Vatican”.

            On a more serious note, from June 1982, Brian discusses the Hot Space album and explains why the non-compromising anti-gun song Put Out the Fire is immediately followed on the album by Life is Real (Freddie’s song for John Lennon).

            Elsewhere, in a 1981 interview recorded during the band’s South American adventure, John Deacon provides some rare insight into some of the more unusual demands of the tour, including why it was necessary to fly in 75 tons of stage equipment and an entire football pitch-worth of Astro turf.

            Roger is interviewed by Richard Skinner and Tommy Vance in 1979 and 1980 to promote the new Queen albums of the time, Live Killers and Flash Gordon respectively, and in a BBC Radio 1 interview with Simon Bates in 1985, Freddie (drinking vodka while the host sips tea!) talks candidly about the public perception of him, about playing ‘rock and roll dodgems’, his image, private life, and working with Michael Jackson and David Bowie.

            Freddie, as he was generally accustomed to doing, steals the show again during a 1976 encounter with his friend Kenny Everett, on his Capital Radio programme. The host attempts to throw his guest off balance by handing him a weather report to read out on air, without warning, while Freddie does his utmost to maintain his composure.

            Queen On Air also provides us with the very last interview Brian, John, Freddie and Roger would give together. Being interviewed for a ‘Queen For An Hour' special with BBC Radio 1’s Mike Read to promote the new album The Miracle and broadcast during the May Bank Holiday weekend of 1989, Read makes the most of his one hour with Queen by cajoling all kinds of details from his guests and covering significant and often enthralling ground. Rare candor emerges, particularly from Freddie, as well as poignant and amusing moments. Aside from discussing the recently recorded new tracks, there is mention of Aretha Franklin, George Michael, Montserrat Caballé, Smokey Robinson, John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix, before moving on to what could be expected next from Queen.

            In an emotional August 1992 BBC Radio 2 interview with Simon Bates three years after that final band interview, Brian recalls the shattering loss of Freddie Mercury nine months earlier and coming to terms with his death.

            The Deluxe Edition of Queen On Air also comes with a meticulously assembled booklet containing rare photographs and sleeve notes lovingly compiled by band archivist Greg Brooks, featuring memories from the band and BBC producers Jeff Griffin and Bernie Andrews, plus comments from legendary Radio 1 DJs John Peel and Bob Harris from the time of the original broadcasts. Amongst them, Bernie Andrews, BBC Radio 1 producer of Queen’s first and third sessions recalls his first introduction to Queen:

            “I first heard of Queen through a very well respected young promotion guy. He said ‘I want to play you a tape’. We went into a room and he got this reel-to-reel out. ‘Well what do you think,’ he asked. ‘They’re bloody great, I love it,’ I replied. Then he told me, ‘They’re called Queen’, and I just fell about the place laughing. I said: ‘They’re great, but you can’t put a band called Queen in the Radio Times!’ I booked them anyway and they went in the Radio Times as Queen.”

            Thanks to their studio albums and their monumental live shows, Queen’s status as bona fide rock legends has long been assured. With Queen On Air, the world finally gets to hear and discover this fascinating side of their legacy.

                      Thank you very much, Yuvalzirler. Some of the most valuable charts facts I have seen for Queen in quite a while. Very good chart trajectory.

                      As I understand, the song Living On My Own (by Freddie Mercury) was number 1 in 1993 too.

                        indeed, number one for 2 weeks starting on 17.8.93

                        Love kills-#7 on 28.10.84 (might've been even higher on 4.11, but i don't have that chart)
                        I was born to love you-#4 on 16.6.85 (again, could be higher)
                        The great pretender-#7 on 15.3.87 (again, could be higher)

                        • Somebody can told me the original album chart positions in italy before 2000? Specifically, somebody know the position obtained by ''A Night at the Opera'' in Italy around 1975/76? Thanks for all.

                            • Queen are currently doing very well on the iTunes Global Digital Artist Rankings, not with their new Queen On Air release but with their back catalogue especially Live At Wembley performing particularly well due to a discounted promotion (Apparently). Queen are usually the highest placed 'Classic Artist' on this chart out performing artists such as ABBA, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin etc

                                    • For the first time in over a year Queen have no Album in the Official UK Album Top100 :( , Tomorrow night however Channel 5 here in the UK air a new Docudrama about Freddie's life "Freddie Mercury - Who Wants To Live Forever". Queen fans are quite cautious about this programme as it's focusing on Freddie's battle with HIV and may well portray him in a bad light, we shall wait and see. We shall also see if this combined with the 25th Anniversary of Freddie's death and the vinyl re-issue of Queen's Greatest Hits 1 and 2 help any Queen Album to re-chart, who knows?

                                                  Bigman, I thought exactly the same, it's either The Platinum Collection or Greatest Hits, never both!!! I know most of the sales for these compilations are digital and not physical so I wonder if some sort of promotion is the reason why. I know Greatest Hits was released on vinyl last week and charted at No 22 in the Vinyl Chart so that may have had an impact but does anybody actually know why these 2 releases seem to alternate on the chart?

                                                          Ed nice to see you back, I was beginning think you and HUR had disappeared for good

                                                          Are there any other songs close to the 100 million plays? Surely Champions and Crazy must be close!

                                                          • I'm here, buddy. Still read the forum, but not much to post unfortunately.

                                                            The next 100 million song should be I Want To Break Free, but it is going to take some time:

                                                            I Want To Break Free - 74,093,368 (62,788,524 + 11,304,844)

                                                            Plus:

                                                            We Are The Champions - 58,735,761

                                                            By my reckoning, Queen's total streams must be on 1.6 billion on Spotify overall, which is pretty strong.
