What’s going on my people? This article has been over a year in the making, to be honest. Let me explain.
When I initially joined Ana on this adventure, I initially agreed to write strictly about the 1970’s and the dope songs that I came across from that era. As I sifted and sorted through this decade for tracks that I really enjoyed, I came across an album of Queen’s: “A Kind of Magic”. The album definitely has a futuristic space vibe to it, if the album cover wasn’t enough of an homage to that feeling.
While I enjoyed the album as a whole, what kept me coming back to the album was one track in particular: Princes of the Universe. From the jump, this track is full of energy, sick guitar riffs, and some gnarly vocals. Kind of explains why I felt like running through a brick wall the first time I heard the track. There was one problem though….
This album came out in 1986, so I personally felt I should step in someone else’s lane and write about a track from the 80’s, even though it was an awesome listen.
Another reason I hesitated writing about Queen was because of how much press they were getting last year with “Bohemian Rhapsody” film. Me being a Weenie Hut General club member, I thought it would be lame to write about a track for a band that was so popular in the main stream media.
Fast forward to this year, and that is no longer a problem. I have overcome these irrelevant roadblocks I’ve created for myself and finally decided to share my love for this track and the album that I have waiting so long to share with y’all.
