Falcone's Crossroads

Where This Meets That

Tuesday Tunage Time Machine

“Tuesday Tunage” is a weekly spotlight for music I deem worthy of a spotlight. To make it worth all of our time, I’ll do my best to emphasize tunes you probably haven’t heard before that represent the art in all its glorious varieties.

I recently found all my old LP records while clearing out our basement for renovation.  Among my findings was the first album I ever bought Queen the Gamewith my own money:  Queen’s The Game. 

Queen released The Game in 1980, and it rode hits like “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” to become the band’s most successful studio album. 

My personal favorite song off the album, though, was one of its lesser known cuts, called “Dragon Attack”.

“Dragon Attack” serves up a serious groove that shows just how tight the band was, behind all its trademark theatricality, clever riffs, and radical time signatures.  This is Queen demonstrating its finest hard rock chops, including one of the all-time great guitar solos, by Brian May.

Enjoy!
