“I can serenade and gently play on your heart strings. Be your Valentino just for you!”

16 June 1977 – Queen recorded ‘Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy’ for Britain’s famed, Top Of The Pops….

Freddie Mercury wrote this fun song for Queen’s fifth album, “A Day At The Races.” (1976)

Just a week after their two-night gig at London’s Earls Court Arena, Queen popped into the Top Of The Pops studios to film a video for their latest single, Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy. (Instead of a conventional single release, an EP was released instead, though Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy was featured as the “main” track.) Because their schedule allowed it, the band decided to “reconnect” with their British fans and perform especially for them, instead of just creating a promotional video and sending it off to various TV outlets. In keeping with tradition on the BBC, the band recorded a drastically different arrangement of the song and then mimed along to that. While this performance has been seen on both the original and Top Of The Pops 2 over the years, it finally gained an official release in 2002.

For unknown reasons, a montage video was created by the Torpedo Twins (Rudi Dolezal and Hannes Rossacher) in 1992 for the US VHS release of Greatest Hits, which was made up mostly of footage from the band’s Earl Court Arena performance. However, because Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy was included as part of a medley, and only ran for a little over two minutes, some clips from other songs of that night had to be “flown in” to make the montage complete. While this was the “official” video for many years, the recent release of the Top Of The Pops version seems to have changed all that (for the better!).

“It’s called ‘Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy’, and it’s in my ‘ragtime’ mood that I get a chance to do on every album and this time, this is something I’ve come up with this time around.”
