Songplay History

  • John Richards : 01/19/2021 08:20 AM
    Queen bass player John Deacon wrote this song and was influenced by the Chic song Good Times. In an interview with the New Musical Express, Chic bass player Bernard Edwards said: "Well, that Queen record came about because that bass player spent some time hanging out with us at our studio. But that's OK. What isn't OK is that the press started saying that we had ripped them off! Can you believe that? 'Good Times' came out more than a year before, but it was inconceivable to these people that black musicians could possibly be innovative like that. It was just these dumb disco guys ripping off this rock 'n' roll song."

    John Deacon’s hard-pulsing bass riff is the heart of “Another One Bites The Dust,” and it’s basically a version of Bernard Edwards’ descending bassline from Chic’s 1979 #1 “Good Times.” Read an in-depth exploration of this Number 1 song: https://bit.ly/3exlRL6
