#AtoZChallenge: Q

We're getting into the more difficult letters of the alphabet. But are they really? I think we just need to apply ourselves a little harder :)

This post is part of a month-long blogging challenge. The challenge is to start the month with the letter A and make our way to letter Z at the end of the month.

A quick review of what we’re doing here:

I’ll post 3 to 5 songs with a word that represents the letter of the day. In the comments, you’ll share songs that also use the selected word in either the title or lyrics.  Pretty easy, and loads of fun!

Today’s word is “Queen”

From Dictionary.com:

  1. Dancing Queen - Abba
  2. Queen of Hearts - Gregg Allman
  3. Queen of Hearts - Juice Newton
  4. Caribbean Queen - Billy Ocean
  5. Queen of the Broken Hearts - Loverboy

And those are my Queens for the day.  Let’s see what Queen songs you come up with. Your songs can be from any musical genre.  Share in the comments.

Today’s post is part of the Monday’s Music Moves Me blog hop, hosted by X-Mas Dolly, and co-hosted by Stacy Uncorked, Curious as a Cathy. , and Ramblin with AM. Be sure to stop by the hosts and visit the other participants.  If you have a MUSIC* post, feel free to join in the fun! *sorry non-music posts are not permitted in this blog hop.


  1. I'm stumped.

    I'm trying to think of a Boy George song that includes the word "queen" in the title but nothing is coming to my mind.

    So, I guess I'll just say . . .

    "Boy George".

    (Oops! Was that a politically incorrect comment? If so, I promise never to be so insensitive again in the future, going forward, hereafter. It's really not like me to be so culturally outcast-y.)

    1. To quote Thumper:

      "If you can't say anything nice.... Don't say anything at all"

    2. I'm not convinced that Thumper said that. Can you prove it?

      And even if he(?) *DID*, we all know that Thumper and his(?) partner, Bambi, were . . . well, . . . "Non-Kings" (aka . . . "Boy Georges", "Elton Johns", "Liberaces", or . . . "Queen Victorias").

      Hey, don't shoot the heterosexual messenger!!

    3. WTF McCarthy! Are you celebrating the wacky tobacky holiday today? Seems you may have received a bad batch...

    4. MMQE ~

      Alright, I get it. You're upset because I didn't mention JOHNNY MATHIS. Mea culpa! And I'm especially sorry because I dig Johnny's singing. (Heck, I own several of his CDs!)

      Hmmm . . . .
      Ordinarily, you seem to be kind of in-sync with my stream o' consciousness sense o' humor. Wha' hoppen? Who are you *REALLY* and what have you done with my friend, Mary?!

      MMQE, I think you're just a bit low on oil. I have a good pal who can protly help you out. Contact:

      Mr. Evan Williams

      Bardstown, Kentucky, 40004

      And maybe we'll have better luck with letter "R".

  2. The SnowQueen by Disney!! I don't know about you, but when the movie was on screen, all - yes, all - the little girls in France were singing the song, well in French.
    It's: libéréééééééééééée, délivrééééééééée (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQP9XZc2Y_c)
    Once you hear it, you have the song in the head all day long...
    Q is for Quilting Longarm

  3. "Snow Queen" by Blood Sweat & Tears (written by Carole King)
    "Gypsy Queen" by Gabor Szabo (covered by Santana at the end of "Black Magic Woman")
    "Witch Queen of New Orleans" by Redbone
    "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain
    "God Save The Queen," the anthem of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (also a song by The Sex Pistols)

  4. Well, of course, Dancing Queen by ABBA:) I also thought of God Save The Queen. Anything by the great group, Queen. I thought of Queen For a Day and Gypsy, Fairie Queen which I think was done by Marianne Faithful

  5. Mississippi Queen is one that is now stuck in my head and Dancing Queen.
    Happy Monday.
    The Letter Q

  6. Queen of Hearts is now going to be playing in my head all day. :) Thanks for the fun list.

  7. Haha, I literally just commented ABBA on your next post!

    Dancing Queen is one of my happy songs! You can't not sing and dance to this song!!!
