I will spare everyone by not putting the Flash Gordon theme on here.  You all have heard it…. and if you haven’t, well then there is no hope for you.  Instead, I wanted to privy you to some of the other tracks from this movie because they kick so much ass that no jedi or trekkie soundtrack can even come close. It was hard picking the songs I wanted to share.  Queen really followed the perfect rule for films by creating musical themes with certain characters or events. 

What is surprising is Queen rocks out so hard in the classic Queen style, yet the songs totally fit the futuristic feel of the movie.  Listen to “Battle Theme”.  Brian May’s lead guitars sound like they flew in straight from planet Mars (that rhymed..teehee!).  The next up is Ming’s theme.  Totally evil, totally huge, and very memorable.  Then lastly I chose The Wedding March.  Starts out very standard Queen with the lead guitar noodlies. Then the song turns to the dark-side just to remind you that the wedding is for the crazed universal Hitler-esque Ming the Merciless.  Awesome. Enjoy :)

That was a good movie. I saw it in the theater as a kid. But it made an even better soundtrack. We rocked out to that many hours in High School. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
