Queen - rarities

Zinnias are whoppie. Zinnias are hubba hubba. Zinnias are the tarts of summer. And no garden is complete without zinnias. So that’s what this post is all about — getting you up to speed with a summer essential. I started with zinnias (‘Cut and Come Again’ if I recall) not long after my Brownie marigold project. Graduated to the Oklahoma series when it was available in separate named colors. From there, I moved up to the Benary strains. The only zinnias that were complete unrequited love were the cactus types. Total fizzle on them (advice? recommendations?). Otherwise, we’ve had a pretty good relationship over the years. Purples have always made my heart flutter. And the reds. Not to mention the whites. But now a new zinnia has stumbled upon my scene, and I’m smitten.

The single was released on 27 May 1977, and was regarded by many of the general public as an assault on Queen Elizabeth II and the monarchy . The title is taken directly from " God Save the Queen ", the national anthem of the United Kingdom. At the time it was highly controversial, firstly for its equation of the Queen with a " fascist regime", and secondly for the lyric "there is no future in England's dreaming". According to Glen Matlock , who had co-written the song although he was no longer a member of the band by the time it was released, the bass was inspired by The Move 's " Fire Brigade ".
