"Queen - The Platinum Collection: Greatest Hits I, II & III" album at Amazon.com
Queen's, "Killer Queen"
The Lyrics:
To avoid complications She never kept the same address In conversation She spoke just like a baroness Met a man from China Went down to geisha minah Then again incidentally If you're that way inclined
Perfume came naturally from Paris (Naturally) For cars she couldn't care less Fastidious and precise
Why:
"Killer Queen" was the break through U.S. hit for the British group, Queen. "Killer Queen" was the group's first top ten hit in the U.S., in 1975, going all the way to #2 on the charts (their follow-up, "Bohemian Rhapsody" would also reach #2). What made it so popular was the amazing vocal ability of lead singer, the late great Freddie Mercury, who was able to sing the lyrics (especially the 4th and 5th verse above fairly quickly with hardly a breath in between the words). In those two verses are shoutouts to the country of China and the city of Paris, France (Naturally). Also in the fourth verse their is a made up by Freddie Mercury phrase of "geisha minah" (which is play on the words of a place named, Asia Minor, as the continent of Asia used to be called).
