Queens, Brian May

Posted on 18 July 2021 by Brian Walsh

Brian May has re-released his classic single “Resurrection” and its video ahead of the remastered Back to the Light album.

“Resurrection” is considered by many to be the standout cut from May’s 1992 solo album, Back to the Light.

Speaking of the song today, May stands by its maximalist methods and message, saying, “That’s the one I want played at my funeral, probably, because it’s irresistibly, forcefully full of belief. It’s the kind of belief that you need to overcome the massive obstacles that get put in our way during our lives. I feel very proud of it.”

Shot in Los Angeles around the time of The Brian May Band‘s show at the Palace Theater on April 6, 1993, the video boasts state-of-the-art computer graphics, with May and drummer Cozy Powell blazing away amid roaring fires and exploding planets.

Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney revealed during a recent interview with Uncut magazine for its September 2021 issue that he has written several “story songs” like hisBeatles classic “Eleanor Rigby” but has no plans to release them.

“Eleanor Rigby,” which is among the most memorable tracks from the Beatles, is from the band’s 1966 studio album Revolver.

McCartney said there are other “story songs” in his archives. “I’ve still got a few that I haven’t released, because I don’t think they’re that good,” he said.

“It’s quite a fun thing to do, to just dream up a name of a character and try and write the story of that character and then make it fit with another character,” McCartney said. “‘Eleanor Rigby,’ I did it with just … Father McKenzie and Eleanor.”

He added, “With my story songs, a lot of them besides ‘Eleanor Rigby,’ tend to be comedy. It’s me doing the tongue-in-cheek thing, whereas ‘Eleanor Rigby’ was more serious. I think that’s why it was more successful.”

“Have You Ever Seen the Rain,” which was written by CCR frontman John Fogerty, was originally released in January 1970 and had reached the No. 2 slot on the charts. The track has now topped the Rock Digital Song Sales chart five decades later.

Recently, the popularity of CCR’s songs has increased after Fogerty started uploading videos on the TikTok platform.

Although CCR have scored nine top 10 hits on the Hot 100, the band never topped a Billboard chart in the career despite boasting an impressive catalog. Five of their singles had peaked at No. 2 on the all-genre chart but failed to reach the top.

Further, the band’s “Bad Moon Rising” and “Fortunate Son” also landed in the Rock Digital Song Sales at No. 9 and No. 10, respectively, on the chart.
