Is there such thing as an underrated Queen song? Here's one

Sometimes we cover the obscure at Lost and Found, but this week it's time to get around to some of the biggest names in ‘80s rock but with songs that rarely, if ever, get played or mentioned anymore. There are few bands revered as much as Queen in SIT80s land, but even '80s Nation would have to knock the dust off the underrated Calling All Girls.

Queen ruled the early 80's with No. 1 hits with Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Another Bites the Dust and other iconic songs like Under Pressure. In 1982, the Hot Space album was released spawning the hit Body Language and the near-hit Calling All Girls. The song failed to reach the Top 40 making it only to No. 60, but the video is top-notch Queen with masked robots and plenty of hamming it up from Freddy Mercury and the gang as they parody George Lucas' first movie THX 1138.  

Queen is performing this summer in America though Adam Lambert has the unenviable position of trying to replace Mercury on the stage. For Mercury fans, Queen will release the new album Queen Forever later this year that will unearth lost ‘80s demos featuring Mercury on vocals and may or may not include a duet with Michael Jackson.   http://www.queenonline.com/
