DEF: Queen “Need Your Loving Tonight”
After Queen scored one of the biggest hits of their career when “Another One Bites The Dust” spent three weeks at number one on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart in 1980, the band released a final single from their The Game album. However, that single — “Need Your Loving Tonight” — didn’t attain the success of its predecessor, as it failed to make the Top 40.
On this date in 1981, “Need Your Loving Tonight” was in the second week of a three-week stay at its peak position of number 44. Today, Queen’s “Need Your Loving Tonight” is the Daily Eighties Flashback.
