Queen’s ‘Another One Bites the Dust’, a famous anthem that rocked the world, began its three-week run at number one in the US charts 34 years ago today.
It seems unfathomable to think that such an important hit which is present and relevant in every British child’s musical education today could be 34 years old. A hard-hitting, sing-along tune that induces pride and a determined attitude, instilling courage with a strong bass rhythm: ‘Another One Bites the Dust’ is epochal.
The song was written by bass player John Deacon and made global with Freddie Mercury’s tangible talent and stage presence. The hit stands the test of time and remains one of the greats.
