On this day in music history: February 23, 1980 - “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 4 weeks. Written by Freddie Mercury, it is the first US chart topper for the British rock band. The idea for the song comes to Mercury while taking a bath in his room at the Munich Hilton. Quickly getting out of the bath, he runs to the piano and begins playing the chords, writing them down before he forgets them. The song is recorded at Musicland Studios in Munich, Germany during sessions for “The Game”. Initially, the bands US label Elektra Records refuses to release it. They do not think that the Elvis Presley inspired rocker will be a hit, and are also reluctant to release a single with no album accompany it immediately. But they are forced to when US radio stations begin playing imported copies of the 45, and listener demand for the record becomes too great to ignore. Issued as a single in early December of 1979, more than seven months ahead of the album, it becomes an immediate smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #58 on December 22, 1979, it climbs to the top of the chart nine weeks later. “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
