💥Another One Bites the Dust💥
.
On August 22th 1980, exactly 37 years ago today, Queen released "Another One Bites the Dust" as the fourth single from The Game album.
.
✨Written by John Deacon the song was a worldwide hit, charting number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks, (their second number-one single in the country). It spent fifteen weeks in the Billboard top ten (the longest running top ten song of 1980).
.
✨The song is credited as Queen's best-selling single, with sales of over 7 million copies.
.
✨The song won an American Music Award in 1981 for Favorite Rock Single and also picked a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.
.
✨It is said that John's bass line was inspired by Chic's "Good Times".
.
✨John played most of the instruments: bass guitar, piano, rhythm and lead guitars and handclap percussion, with no synthesizers used.
.
✨The band didn't want the song to be released as a single but after a Queen gig in Los Angeles, Michael Jackson suggested to Freddie backstage that it be released as a single.
.
✨Interestingly, the Song was used to train medical professionals to provide the correct number of chest compressions per minute in CPR. The bassline has 110 beats per minute, and 100–120 compressions are recommended by the British Heart Foundation.
.
✨This was the single that really broke the band in America. Queen found American Disco audiences, with many fans and journalists convinced it was a black man singing lead vocals. Roger joked of having fans shouting "you guys are bad!" in the street, and he had to ask does that mean good or what?"
.
✨Brian May says about the song:
"A fantastic bit of work from Freddie really. I mean, I remember Deacie having this idea... he was trying to suggest to Freddie how it should be and Fred was so into it and he just went in there and hammered and hammered until his throat bled."
