#AtoZChallenge : Queen


We’re back again with more fun with the A to Z Challenge.

A quick review of what we’re doing here:

I’ll post 2 to 3 songs with a word that represents the letter of the day. In the comments, you’ll share songs that also use said word in either the title or lyrics.  Pretty easy, and loads of fun!

Today’s word is “Queen”

From Dictionary.com:



Mountain “Mississippi Queen”




Whitney Houston “Queen of the Night”




Queen “Killer Queen”




And that’s my 3 ‘Queen’ songs for the day.  Let’s see what ‘Queen’ songs you come up with. Share in the comments.

  1. Mary,

    'Killer Queen' is the only song title I recognized this morning. I'm surprised I didn't know Whitney Houston's song. No suprise that I didn't know 'Mississippi Queen' because the band didn't ring a bell with me.

    I did a quick check on Ranker's 100 and these are the only two that jumped out at me immediately. A lot of the titles sounded familiar but when I listened they were new to me. Go figure. Anywho, here are my picks:

    Carribean Queen - Billy Ocean
    Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen - Santana (I learned 'Gypsy Queen' was written & performed by Hungarian jazz guitartis Gabor Szabo)


    Check out Atlantica's QUEEN, Althena, & the Little Mermaid's mother in today's A2Z Little Mermaid art sketch 'Queen' post. Happy a2zing, my friend!

    1. Hi Cathy!

      Whitney's song was from The Bodyguard. It was one of the few from that movie that I really enjoyed. I discovered Mississippi Queen back in the mid 90's when it was used in a Mtn Dew commercial.

    2. Mary, I don't remember the Mtn Dew commercial...I may have to look for it on YT to refresh my memory. I think I have A2Z brain freeze right. :)

  3. These are ideal choices. One of my favorite songs with "Queen" in the title is the Incredible String Band's "Queen of Love". An odd haunting song.

    Queen of Love.

  4. Fantastic girlfriend and I'm always saying why oh why didn't I think of that one. Bodyguard is one of my favorite movies. Now you know, I'm going to have to go watch that now! ~hehehe~ It is a stellar movie isn't it? Well, believe me I was surprised once again to see you over by me girlfriend we are similar in wave lengths, but I do admit your above me with your music challenge. Fantastic tune choice. Do you watch "The voice"? I loveee that show. I must say I'm so glad Blake has slowed down with the hugging & kissing with everyone especially men cuz I know he's not that way, but it just looks odd. They got some really good ones this year, but not as many as other years for sure. I really enjoyed myself here. YOU GO GIRL!

    1. Believe it or not - I have not watched television in a good 10 years. I don't even own one anymore. I do, however, catch bits and pieces on youtube. I don't even watch Netflix anymore, but sometimes, yet very rarely, I'll watch something on Amazon Prime. See you in a bit for the letter R!

  5. Celestial the Queen - Blue Oyster Cult. Otherwise, I would have guessed Dancing Queen (love Abba!) but I'm a little late in commenting.

    1. Dancing Queen is a good one. Not sure that I've heard the Blue Oyster Cult tune - will have to check it out. And you're not late at all. You made it here on the day of posting :) Which means you're doing far better than I am.
