1991-92 was a time when Queen was all over the place and quite popular again.....some of y´all mentioned Bohemian Rapsody but y´all know Queen´s album and song

Innuendo was kina big in the charts in 91 too....Prince always soaked up what was going on around him much like Erotic City was inspired by Laid Back´s White Horse club hit maybe he was going through a lil Queen phase in 1991-92 with Strays of the World and Three Chains of Gold. They both admired and respected each other..Cream was on D&P and sounds like a Marc Bolan song so he wasprobly listning to a lot of 70s rock music who knows....

I thought that Erotic City was inspired by a Parliament/George Clinton concert that Prince had just been at and then rushed home and recorded Erotic City with Sheila E.?

I'd reckon that Morris Day was way more influenced by Queen than anyone.

Or is it really so awful to imagine vice versa? That Queen were huge fans and followers of The Time, Prince, etc.???

No it isn't.

If MTV had a theme song that was like Hotel California what would it be?

I fear that music videos aren't even appreciated as well as they were during that era.

Does anybody know anything about music videos outside of YouTube?

Describing 3COG as cheesy is missing the point; it's meant to be OTT and grandiose, and I love it! Sonically, the whole Symbol album sounds fantastic and Push would be my favourite, what a fun song that is.

As for BR, it got my foot tapping a bit when I was a young person but now (well for decades actually) I'm just so bored of it; I always turn the dial to something else when it comes on.

On a similar vein but far far better, and one that I always listen to right to the end, is ELO's Mr Blue Sky which has a certain inspirational sweetness to it that's lacking on BR.


Completely agree on 3COG and the whole Symbol album but some smart arse will come along soon and tell you Push is on D&P


Oops! Of course, silly me! I was thinking of Love 2 The 9's

Because "Push" is just soooo similar to "Love 2 The 9s?" Shiver me timbers!

Definitely inspired by BR - you can hear this in the obvious transitions between moods throughout the song.

.

I do like this song and I get what he was doing, but it is always ruined by the spoken word from Mayte...

If MTV had a theme song it would have to be the very first video they ever played- Video Killed The Radio Star.

I definitely believe Prince dug Queen alot. Among what's already been mentioned on this thread, some of his guitar lines sometimes reminded me of Brian May's. "Strays Of The World" is another one as well. Queen was a master of majestic or royal type music, and so was Prince. So, I'm sure they took notes from each other. I remember reading something about Freddie digging Prince alot as well at one point. [Edited 5/1/21 18:14pm]

Brian May was a huge Prince fan as well.

I'd go out on a limb here and say that CRYSTAL BALL is more Bohemian Rhapsody than 3 CHAINS OF GOLD is.
