Song 289 (Queen--"A Kind of Magic")
I felt like choosing something by Queen today and this song is one of my favoured by them. Anyway, what really got my attention is the prominent bass line, which is deceptively simple but drives the entire song. As with every song by Queen the musicianship is exquisite and almost perfect for the song.
Most would remember this song if you watched the first Highlander movie, this album was basically the soundtrack for the film; music from this album was also used for future movies and the series.
Here is the music video on YouTube.
