GROSS: That's not the band Queen. It's the queen - Queen Elizabeth. As part of her recent Platinum Jubilee, she made a video of her tapping her spoon on a teacup to Queen's famous rhythm. Then the band Queen performed a concert outside Buckingham Palace to a huge crowd. When they played \"We Will Rock You,\" the Royal Marine drummers kicked it off.
QUEEN: (Singing) Buddy, you're a boy. Make a big noise. Playing in the street - gonna (ph) be a big man someday. You got mud on your face, you big disgrace, kicking your can all over the place, singing, we will, we will rock you. We will, we will rock you. Buddy, you're a young man, hard man, shouting in the street, gonna take on the world someday. You got blood on your face, you big disgrace, waving your banner all over the place. We will, we will rock you. Sing it out. We will, we will rock you. Buddy, you're an old man, poor man...
The chorus, in context, is not a rally call, as millions of sports fans later would interpret it, but instead a gentle reassurance. May was inspired by a popular Czech lullaby in which parents promise a child, \"We will rock you, rock you\" to sleep. May flipped the phrase to \"We will, we will rock you,\" and he was finished. One of the most famous songs ever, the sports anthem of our generation, took all of 10 minutes to compose.
The awe-inspiring musical tells of a group of bohemians and their attempt, to save rock n roll in a post- apocalyptic, dystopian world. We Will Rock You the musical will feature 24 of Queen's greatest hits, from 'Radio Ga Ga', 'Under Pressure', 'We Are The Champions', 'Bohemian Rhapsody', 'Another One Bites The Dust', and of course, the incomparable 'We Will Rock You'. 59ce067264
