Nobody I know could love me more than you You can give me so much love, it seems untrue Listen to the bird who sings it to the tree And then when you’ve heard him see if you agree Nobody I know could love you more than me
When you’re alone and life is making you lonely You can always go downtown When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry Seems to help, I know, downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty How can you lose? The lights are much brighter there You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown Things will be great when you’re downtown No finer place for sure, downtown Everything’s waiting for you

Jonathan “Johnny” Clegg (born 7 June 1953) is a British-born musician and anthropologist from South Africa, who has recorded and performed with his bands Juluka and Savuka, and more recently as a solo act, occasionally reuniting with his earlier band partners. He is an important figure in South African popular music history, with songs that mix Zulu with English lyrics and African with various Western music styles.
The name Savuka is based on the Zulu word for “we have risen” or “we have awakened”. At the height of the band’s success in 1988, Michael Jackson had to cancel his show in Lyon, France, as he attracted a smaller audience than Johnny Clegg and Savuka. A newspaper headline in France read “white man singing black music, out sells black man singing white music”. Their last album Heat, Dust and Dreams was nominated for a Grammy Award for best album in the category of World Music.

I figured “Somebody to Love” would be a somewhat bittersweet way to end the Queen week on Valentine’s Day. Not a love song, but I posted enough early, but a song for those single folks out there that are perhaps curled up with their cats. Named Dawson and Daria. Me, okay, it’s me! It’s me, curled up eating chocolates I made Mr. Richard buy me on the couch with Dawson and Daria. It may not be the most upbeat singles anthem, but hey, it deserves a spot on the playlist.
I hope you have all enjoyed this week of Queen! I’m not sure who the next artist will be to deserve a full week of attention, but I’m sure somebody will be popping up soon. In the meantime, get the cats glammed up and spend the night rocking out to some Queen in your living room. Or cuddled with your loved one. Whatever fits your situation!
Somebody find me, somebody find me Somebody to love, anybody find me Can you find me? Can, can you find me? Some, some, somebody, somebody to love, ya
(Find me somebody to love) (Find me somebody to love) Some, some, somebody to love me Can you love me? Can you love me? Oh, give love, give love, give love Give love, somebody to love
Can anybody fine me? Can anybody find me? Find me, find me, find me, find, ooh ya Some, yeah, somebody Oh, oh somebody to love
Written by Queen’s guitarist Brian May, “Flash” is the theme song of the 1980 film Flash Gordon. The soundtrack released to coincide with the film contained only the music composed and performed by Queen.
There are two versions of the song. The album version (“Flash’s Theme”) is in fact the start to the movie, with all the dialogue from the first scene. The single version features dialogue cut from various parts of the movie, most memorably, Brian Blessed’s character exclaiming “Gordon’s alive?!” This version was also included on Queen’s Greatest Hits compilation from 1981.
Flash is sung as a duet between Freddie Mercury and Brian May, with Roger Taylor adding the high harmonies. May plays all of the instruments except for the rhythm section.
