Saturday Songs – February 1, 2014
You just might be wondering what does the rock band Queen have to do with the biggest football game of the year (which will go unmentioned because of copyright issues)?
It’s easy. Besides recording a number of awesome albums, Queen is also behind the music for the 1980s movie Flash Gordon. Sure, the movie is cheesier than a Velveeta factory, but the soundtrack is just… well, that damn cool.
So, again, how does Queen and the theme song to Flash Gordon tie into this Sunday’s big game? In this version of the movie, Flash is the quarterback of the New York Jets, which currently play at Metlife Stadium, the site of this year’s big event.
Maybe that’s why the Jets did not make it this year; their quarterback was too busy fighting Ming the Merciless.
