Back in 1984, Roger Taylor wrote a No 1 hit for Queen in Radio Ga Ga, which featured on the band’s album The Works. The catchy song is the subject of this week’s episode of Queen the Greatest. And while the track and its music video were much loved, it also experienced some backlash in the press.

In archive footage, John Deacon shared: “In the early days, it was Brian and Freddie who really used to write most of the material, but over the last five years, Roger and I have started to contribute more.”

While Freddie Mercury said: “I think the time has come where we actually, in songwriting, we’re actually completely even.

“Roger will come up with something like Radio Ga Ga, and it’s perfect.”

The Queen drummer was inspired to write the song one Sunday afternoon when his very young son Felix came in to see him.
