'Don't stop me now' is top Queen lyric

Monday September 5, 2011

Queen fans have voted the chorus of their mega-hit Don't Stop Me Now as the band's best ever lyric in a poll to mark the group's 40th anniversary.

One in five fans favoured the line "Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time, I'm having a ball" to celebrate the band's four decades.

It also coincides with what would have been Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday.

Penned by Freddie and featured as the 12th track on the band's 1978 album Jazz, the song reached the charts on January 26, 1979.

Coming in second in the HMV poll was the lyric from The Show Must Go On: "My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies, fairy tales of yesterday will grow but never die. I can fly my friends."

A charity is also urging people to 'Be Freddie For A Day' to raise money to fight Aids.
