Killer Queen

I wanted to title this post Who Wants To Live Forever? But thought that too morbid.

Xtinefiles in off to London in less that a week. Mostly for work, partly to stalk Robbie, and sort of to just live the brit life. The last time I was in London was during the big millennium celebrations of 2000. I'm glad to return six years later and in honor of my glorious return I have loaded the following songs on my ipod for the journey:

Radio Ga Ga
We Are The Champions
Killer Queen
Under Pressure
Who Wants to Live Forever
The Show Must Go On
These Are the Days of Our Lives
God Save the Queen
Somebody to Love
In The Death Cell (Love Song from Flash Gordon)
Flash (Flash Gordon)
I Want to Break Free

Technically, Freddie Mercury was born in Zanzibar of all places so he's not really a true brit.

A good conversation starter while in London might be the recent UK Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Awards where Led Zeppelin and Sir George Martin (producer for the Beatles) where honored as well as Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. And were Joss Stone was sporting a brunette hairdo. Very odd. And Beyonce introduced Prince - oh the horror!

You must sing "I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes..." at some point during the trip and don't forget "Hey kids, there's Big Ben and there's Parliament, and there's Big Ben again, and there's Parliament."

Also remember that the pound is MUCH more expensive than the dollar, so don't go crazy in Harrod's. Just buy a Cadbury Fruit & Nut bar in Heathrow. Yum!

Have a good trip!
Well actually, Zanzibar became a protectorate of the United Kingdom in 1890, they got it from a...oh, just look it up!

Just reading that list of songs has made me want to get out my Queen records...or watch Flash Gordon!

Have fun in the UK. I'm heading to Seattle for 10 days on the 22nd--been nearly 3 years since I've been back.
