"Need Your Loving Tonight" by Queen

Song#:  0425
Date:  11/29/1980
Debut:  76
Peak:  44
Weeks:  11
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  The fourth charting single from their album "The Game" followed up their massive #1 hit "Another One Bites the Dust."

ReduxReview:  Although not quite as retro-sounding as "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," it still has that 50s/60s rock sound. With the success of "Another One," I'm a bit surprised this didn't do better. It's not one of their most awesome singles, but it is solid. It may have just be lacking a more forceful, catchy chorus to really click at pop radio.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  Although successful in the US, in the group's UK home they became one of the top bands of all-time. According to the Guinness Book of World Records (2006 version), Queen's albums have spent the most total weeks on the chart than any other artist. At the time they had spent more than 1,300 weeks on the chart, which equates to over 25 years.
