[ 2007-01-04 10:50 ]

新年第一天,英国广播公司宣布“英国有史以来最伟大的乐队”投票结果,“皇后乐队”以四百票优势压倒第二位的“披头士”,成为冠军。此次评选,先从数千支乐队中选出5强进入决赛,然后在3小时的节目内,以各乐队的曲词质量、现场表演、原创性和表演技巧等为依据,由2万多名听众通过电邮、短信和电话等方式进行投票。结果皇后乐队拿下头名,披头士和滚石乐队位列第二、三名。皇后乐队成立于1971年,其音乐华丽、张扬并富有创意。该乐队的名曲《我们是冠军》,至今仍是各大赛场和重要活动上的主题曲之一。

 

 

The flamboyant rock group Queen upstaged the Beatles to win the title of "Greatest British Band of All Time" in a vote organized by BBC Radio.

Queen garnered 400 more votes than the Beatles when more than 20,000 listeners were asked to choose from among five bands that also included the Rolling Stones, Take That and Oasis.

The five emerged from a list of thousands of nominations.

Each group was judged on song-writing, lyrics, live performances, originality and showmanship during a three-hour show in which people voted by email, text and phone.

The Rolling Stones came third in the vote, followed by Oasis in fourth and Take That in fifth.

A BBC spokesman said the vote for Queen had been boosted by a celebrity nomination from teen favourites McFly, who said they had been inspired by the rockers.

Queen, led by their iconic frontman Freddie Mercury who died from an AIDS-related illness in 1991, released a string of hits through the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
