Fan Feature: Majestic Music Hall by Nathan Hodges

"To describe Queen as simply as possible then you would call themselves a classic rock band. But when you look at their catalogue of songs you realise, they are one of the most diverse groups of all time. Some of their most popular albums from the seventies prove this point a lot more than others and there is one style on some of those albums which stands out more than others…music hall. This was a type of British theatrical entertainment that was from the early Victorian era, but its popularity dwindled after the First World War. The style included a mixture of popular songs, comedy, speciality acts and variety entertainment. Though Queen would end up recording half a dozen tracks with music hall influences, all but one was written by Freddie. But despite this, all members of Queen indulged themselves into showcasing their musical talents into producing these songs."
