I have always thought Queen’s best work was done in the 1970’s- but it wasn’t until 1980 that they had a #1 hit single -and they had two that year from the album The Game- ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ and “Another One Bites The Dust.’ ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ is Queen’s best selling single-with sales over 7 million copies. Queen’s bassist John Deacon wrote the song and the bass line of the song was inspired by the disco group Chic’s smash it ‘Good Times.’
