Welcome to Week #11 of our Sunday Song Series. This time, we’ll be giving a listen to Queen’s Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon.
Considering its (approx) one minute tracking time, everything will all be over so rapidly that you might even opt to hang around to check out the following companion video… one which relates this song’s fascinating backstory and reaffirms that the groundbreaking influence of engineers / producers Roy Thomas Baker and (the late) Mike Stone, had both been every bit as vital to Queen’s sound / success as (the late) Sir George Martin’s innovative impact on the Beatles.

If you can spare a scant minute more, also check out The Diamonds’ lead vocalist Lucie Halamikova… her performance enhanced by some really cool CGI and vintage video clips.
