Hot Space is the Queen album of choice for attractive women. According to a new Gallop survey, 82 percent of foxy ladies favor Hot Space over runner-up The Game. But it doesn't take a professional pollster to know that Hot Space drives women crazy!
1. Hit play, and "Staying Power" sends a powerful subliminal message -- *you* have marathon-man stamina!
2. "Dancer" says, in so many breathy words, "Let's get physical, let's get animal!"
3. "Backchat" will have you putting on your boogie shoes, and taking *off* your ascot!!
4. And if you don't shake your groove thing by "Body Language," check your pulse and shotgun a Red Bull!!
Pre-programmed, the disc jumps to "Put out the Fire" (fierce), Cool Cat (meooow!), and that foreign song (for a TLC cool down, baby yeah!).
In short, this is not your older brother's Queen, to be cranked out of the squealing high rider as feathered clips blow from the rear view, and Sceeter's hanging out the sun roof raising a styrofoam can holder like the Statue of Liberty and doing air guitar to his "anthem."
Hot Space *is* a very special album, appreciated by men of distinction, with remote control light dimmers and wine from a real supermarket.
The Rolling Stones' Some Girls (1978) reflects, twists, and "bites" punk and disco. Queen reflects their times with Hot Space... but nothing of the times sounds like this. Queen hovers above the scene and creates something new. (New wave and disco - almost by definition - lack Mercury's warmth). If you like Hot Space, check out ABC's "Lexicon of Love." Rock on... I mean PARTY on!!
