Crazy Little Thing Called Love

A Queen music video aired on family tea-time favourite Top of the Pops in 1979. I remember it! ... Jaw-dropping in its sexuality and uncomfortably titilating (I'd have been twelve at the time), it haunted my imagination for years. For some reason it was the clapping hands that did it for me. A friend of the same age as me recalls how "shocked" his mother was.

We were trying to explain what ground-breaking raunch this was, to a much younger friend who had never seen the video. So we fished it out on Youtube.

"Maybe this is the censored version?" she suggested, puzzled.

No. We were just much more easily pleased in the Olden Days.
