Pioneer Queens

Making their comback this July.

Find an iconic album cover and remix it to represent a something different. It can be a play on the title, the image, the aesthetic, genre, etc

Using the Queen album Queen II, I reworked four pioneers into the shot.  Though the image did not come out as well as hoped, the humorous aspects remain untouched.  The songs on the pioneers’ version differ from the original and are as follows:

White Side
No. Title Length
1. “Processor” (Instrumental) 1:12
2. “Computer to User” 6:14
3. “White Queen (As It Began)” 4:34
4. “Some Day One Day, Memex” 4:23
5. “The Robotics in the End” :02
Black Side
No. Title Length
1. “Interface Battle” 4:10
2. “The Fairy Feller’s Algorithm” 2:40
3. “NDRCmore” 1:15
4. “The March Of The Cryptanalysis “ 6:33
5. “Funny How Cybernetics Is” 2:50
6. “Seven Worlds of Web” 2:50
(original list)

White Side

No. Title Length
1. “Procession” (Instrumental) 1:12
2. “Father to Son” 6:14
3. “White Queen (As It Began)” 4:34
4. “Some Day One Day” 4:23
5. “The Loser in the End” (Roger Taylor) 4:02
Black Side
No. Title Length
1. Ogre Battle 4:10
2. “The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke” 2:40
3. Nevermore 1:15
4. “The March Of The Black Queen” 6:33
5. “Funny How Love Is” 2:50

  1. Haha, interesting idea for the assignment!

    You should’ve switched the gay singer (Mercury) with the gay pioneer (Turing) though :p

    Great job, love the tracks!

  2. I really like this one. I was never much of a Queen fan. I always that they were singing, “We will rob you” and thought it a bit too extreme.

    You did a nice job of putting this together. I’m curious about how you got their faces to fit in behind all of the Queen members’ hair. This is why everyone is asked to describe the process.

    Also, you need the appropriate tags for this to show up on the ds106 site.
