I’ve got this unwritten rule regarding classic rock. I don’t have any physical copies of it (With the exception of CCR, because it’s CCR). I only listen to it on the radio. So this has allowed me to still get stoked on songs that are played quite frequently or are otherwise quite famous. I also have a habit of going on song kicks, where certain grooves just catch me like the plague.
“Fat Bottomed Girls” is just one of those songs that hits all the right chords. That opening harmony, Freddie Freaking Mercury, THAT RIFF, that absolutely floor shattering groove, dat bassline, that guitar tone, that everything.
It’s rock ‘n’ fucking roll, no if’s, and’s or butt’s about it.
