Deciding which are the best Queen karaoke songs out of the phenomenal library that this talented rock band have written and produced since they formed in London in 1970 is no mean feat.
In the early days their music was influenced by heavy metal, hard rock and progressive rock, but eventually they ventured into more conventional styles such as pop rock and arena rock which where more radio friendly.
In popular culture Queen have been a Global presence for more than 5 decades making them one of worlds' best selling music artists with record sales exceeding 300 million.
The band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in early 2001 and in 2003 into the Songwriters Hall of Fame as all 4 band members had individually composed hit singles.

His Flamboyance, Musicianship, Artistry, Inventiveness and Charisma were undeniable, rewarding him with a devoted fan base who still revere him around the world to this day.
How fortunate we were to have witnessed the talent of the 'Legend' Freddie Mercury.
He was a great talent, with other talented members within the band. Queen would not have been the same without the intricate harmonies of all the band members.
Freddie Mercury died aged 45 on the 24th November 1991 from 'Aids' related pneumonia at his home in Kensington, London, United Kingdom. To this day fans still visit to leave messages and poems on the gates of his home which he left to his ex Mary Austin along with all his other worldly possessions.
He left a legacy of outstanding rock songs that will live on forever, and as he once said 'The Show Must Go On'. It most definitely will!!
The remaining members of the band stayed dedicated to their music, but without the legendary frontman Freddie Mercury, they did not reunite as Queen until years after his death.
In 2012 they joined forces with former American Idol Adam Lambert who brought his own style, Freddie vibes and showmanship to the fans which they loved.
The band began touring again and sold out stadiums across the globe.
Queen have proven that as a band they have the strength to overcome challenges and to still come out on top as the Champions of Rock.
I am not going to be a star. I am going to be a legend.
