TREE OF GAGA, BRANCH 5: "Killer Queen"

“The killer queen inside me
Coming to say ‘Hello’!”

Plus, “The Queen” is followed by a song that uses the “We Will Rock You” sample and the real Brian May’s supermassive guitar. That crazy, super-meta uptown girl.

Oh god, I doubled over laughing when I heard that sample – having stomped my little teenage feet to it in ’77! Isn’t it great that she can just….. call up Brian May?
