QUEEN APPRECIATION WEEK
DAY 7 →  MUSIC VIDEOS
5. Radio Gaga (Roger Taylor;, The Works 1984)
What other band has German Expressionist sci-fi in their music videos? Come on.
4. Who Wants to Live Forever (Brian May; A Kind of Magic, 1986)
Not only do we have a gorgeous set, but also: Freddie in a tux. Deaky and an upright bass. Drunk Roger. Brian being beautiful as always. It’s a wonderful video for an exquisite song.
3. These Are The Days of Our Lives (Roger Taylor; Innuendo, 1991)
As much as it hurts to watch this, knowing that Freddie intended it as a sort of goodbye, it’s still a magnificently done video. The song is amazing, and the video makes it even more incredible.
2. Bohemian Rhapsody(Freddie Mercury; A Night at the Opera, 1975)
Possibly the most iconic music video of all time, for one of the greatest songs ever written.
1. I Want to Break Free (John Deacon; The Works, 1984)
They’re dressing in drag and spoofing Coronation Street. It really doesn’t get much better than this. BONUS they all make absolutely BEAUTIFUL women.
DOCTOR ROGER TAYLOR OMG
Just in case people don’t know the difference between an honorary doctorate and a PhD, Roger isn’t going to be a doctor.
He’ll still be able to use the title of ‘doctor’ though. Having a phD isn’t the only way to get the Dr. in front if your name
I know that, a doctor of medicine will usually have an M.D. not a PhD, but an honorary doctorate isn’t a way of obtaining that title. Technically, whilst in correspondence with the university that’s awarding him it he could use Dr. but in day to day life it would be wrong to use it. Roger’s being recognised for his contributions to music, and whilst it is a great honour to receive it, he hasn’t worked for it and it’d be wrong to go ahead and call himself a doctor when actual doctors have to work extremely hard to earn that title. He’s an honorary doctor of music, so he can absolutely say that his name is Roger Taylor, Mus.D. (Doctor of Music) but not put Dr. before his name.
You don’t have to look very far on google to find all of this out for yourself.
Oh. I’d thought I read he could choose to use the title if he wanted to. But the part you said where he can be called Dr in correspondence with the university only kinda makes sense. I think there have been people who do call themselves Dr after getting this kind of award tho idk cuz they do earn it, just not academically. Every time I try to look it up I get a different answer 😣
