You’re My Best Friend

Truck yeah? Fuck no! A week late week for Valentine’s day, it’s time to hold hands with your significant other, take a long walk down the beach together, look deeply into each other’s eyes and say “Whaddya fancy for supper then…?” There’s a touch of class about this week’s song and even if Roger thought it belonged in a knitted circle rather than a rock band’s repertoire, it still make the top ten and the Greatest Hits record, neither of which Rog’ managed up until The Works. So stick that in your carburetorand smoke it!

If Randy were to title this episode, he’d probably call it “Happy at home” or possibly “Deacy gets freaky with his missus!”

Today’s song covers the first Deacy-penned single in the Queen catalogue, “You’re My Best Friend” from 1975’s “A Night at the Opera”

The song included at the end of the episode is “Amazed” by Kev (played on, recorded, produced, and mixed by the Cardinal!) Check it out here:

NOTE: If you want to skip ahead to Randy and Kev’s manifestations and the wheel spin, that happens at 33:58
