“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” is Queen’s tribute to the rock ‘n’ roll music of the 50s, particularly that of Elvis Presley. It was conceived in a bathtub — written in five minutes and recorded in Munich, Germany. In 1980, the song became Queen’s first US #1 single. Later that year, “Another One Bites the Dust” became their second song to reach the top spot. With a shuffle feel, Roger Taylor’s drum part has a good workout for the hi-hat hand and some catchy, iconic 8th and 1/4 note triplet licks and fills — as the drums do a call and response with the other instruments in the song’s Bridge. The 8th notes in this notation should be interpreted as “swung 8ths” (i.e. broken triplets). This transcription uses this common technique of writing swing grooves in order to make the sheet music clean and easy to read. Get the note-for-note drum sheet music for “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” and learn to play Taylor’s great rockability feel.
