Genius Annotation

“Don’t Stop Me Now” is one of Queen’s masterpieces, a song that’s aged well with time and landed third on Rolling Stone’s list of the Top 10 Queen Songs. It’s a simple song, an energetic song that sees lead singer Freddie Mercury on a high that he wants to stay in, letting nobody pull him down.

Critically, the song performed well, releasing as a single after the release of album Jazz. Despite reaching number 9 on the UK charts and later going Platinum, it only hit 86 on the US charts. Time has only increased its popularity, as it is often included in “Greatest Hit” compilations and stands as their second most played song on Spotify with over 1.25 billion plays as of March 2022.
