Lovely Song For Mom – Queen on The Vault
The rarely heard Queen rocker Tie Your Mother Down is the Vault track today, by request. With all due respect to mothers everywhere, it’s a tongue-in-cheek thing, says writer Brian May. “It was meant as a joke.” Freddie, years later, added “I don’t know. I think it was Brian trying to be heavier than my Death On Two Legs.” Whatever, it’s a great riff that still smokes like it did in 1976. 5:20pm, on the radio or on-line.
