    This has been an ongoing debate in my school as to which band is better- Queen or The Beatles.
    Arguably, you could say that The Beatles is better because they sold more records than Queen.
    But personally I enjoy Queen's music much more. Like, I love The Beatles, they were amazing, but Queen is my favourite band of all time, ecause
    1) Their music is just so much easer to rock out to, like if I'm stressed or anything, I can just listen to Queen, and just jam
    2) I feel like The Beatles' music is something that you need to take time to appreciate, and that, although great, is just not something that can get me truly pumped, and although is calm and mellow, isn't a good cure for my stress. This s because I use music to relax, and I don't mean I listen to relaxing music, but I mean that music just speaks to me.
    3) Bohemian Raphsody
    4) Freddie Mercury. Need I say more
    Anyway, please share your opinion

    I like both, like I don’t knwo many knows except the most well known ones (like hey Jude etc from Beatles I love) but Queen’s songs are so widely well know. You may not know it’s by them or the name of the song but you somehow can singalong and just love it. TBH I myself have never met anyone who doesn’t like a Queen song

    The Beatles, but I haven't listened to Queen as extensively. I like what I've heard from Queen, but only as a bit of fun.

    No you couldn't. That doesn't mean they were better.

    True. Maybe it’s just because I don’t listen to much music so rarely hear them, still love them though (Beatles and Queen)

    I think they were both great at what they did but am not a big fan of either of them.
    Both have individual tracks I like, but not many albums.

    What?! I love it because there’s so many different textures? And pitches? (I’m trying to think of the word but my mind has gone blank) I hope that old friend has some sense now haha

    Nice, you’ll probably get it eventually, whereas I cannot play a single instrument to save my life😂 eventually I will teach myself, and then I’ll join you on that mission to play bohemian rhapsody

    It’s all good, it’s more coincidence than hatred that I haven’t talked to him since July. We haven’t met up in a while😂 I don’t hate him completely, I just feel sorry for him

    I think after my grade exam I will look for the sheet music again and try it (and fail haha)
    you should teach yourself an instrument (I taught myself a little guitar) and it gives you a little confidence boost but also the ability to play bohemian rhapsody would make me want to learn like 5 other instruments hahah (wouldn’t have effort though)
