Queen is a band that needs no introduction. This 70s band has been featured in so many films, TV shows and cartoons that even if you didn’t know the band, you’ve definitely heard of their songs. Catchy hits such as, “We Are The Champions”, “Another Bites The Dust” and “We Will Rock You” are classic earworms for all ages. Especially with the release of Bohemian Rhapsody (film) in 2018 and the normalisation of music streaming in recent years, Queen garnered an even larger and younger fanbase, who are now accessing the long tail of ‘oldies hits’ beyond the contemporary pop tunes of today.
The timeless allure of Queen is in their signature style of powerful, anthemic music. Epic and triumphant, they feel larger than life; larger than any obstacle and tribulation you may face. One such song is, “Don’t Stop Me Now”, a popular anthem for people who need just that extra oomph to tackle their next challenge. One commenter on YouTube even said this song is, “better than therapy”.

Since our audio similarity search works directly on the song’s sonic thumbprint (as opposed to metadata), the playlist leans heavily on Classic Rock tunes written in the 70s. A challenging feat to achieve if searching merely by keywords, and an incredibly useful feature if you are aiming for very focused search results (e.g. playlisting, synchronisation).
