Music of Q: Question of Honor?

The dreaded letter Q.

When looking through my iTunes catalogue, I only have one Q entry. So then I went to YouTube and the iTunes store to see what I was missing. But how do you look up "Q" and hope to find a whole collection of songs or artists you hadn't yet thought of?

Alas, today is going to be a short post--my lone Q song in my collection.

1. "A Question of Honor" by Sarah Brightman
I learned who Sarah Brightman was in junior high when I was just exploring show tune collections and wanted to know more about Phantom of the Opera. But it wasn't until more than 20 years later that I finally embraced this amazing singer. A family member who was incredibly close to me passed away a few short months after her diagnosis. They played another Sarah Brightman song at her funeral and to this day, I still can't listen to it all the way through. Unless I'm feeling like I need to have a good cry. Then, and maybe only then, will I listen to it.

Here's a video of "A Question of Honor" as sung by Sarah Brightman at one of the DIVAS concerts.

You tell me: What's in your music playlist under the letter "Q"?


  1. It's got to be Queen! Cheesy, but perfect if you're in the right mood :-)

  2. Ooooh, great piece of music! I'm with AFE Smith - there's nothing like Queen.

    The only song I have starting with Q is Quiet Life by Japan. Nothing like 80s Electronica :D

  3. Sarah Brightman! Now that brings back memories. I still can't believe she was married to Andrew Lloyd Webber!

  4. I have the Quidditch World Cup song from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (love that one!) And Quandro le sere al placido by Placido Domingo.

    I love the range in Sarah's voice. She can sound so pop, and then there is her opera "mode."

  5. Not many Q songs, but I have a lot of music by Queensryche and Queens of the Stone Age.

  6. The only stuff I've got for Q is Queens of the Stone Age. I bet there're songs out there that start with "Quit" or "Quiet". Maybe "Queer"?

  7. Ok I had to check and see what was on mine: A Question of time, and A Question of lust both by Depeche Mode. I would not have remembered that though! :)

  8. I looked and I don't have a single song starting with Q on the ipod. Weird. I have one Queen song and that's it. That's not right.

  9. Man, I got nothing. Except the classic Queen songs and one Queens of the Stone Age.

  10. I can't believe I forgot Queen! This A-Z theme is pointing out again and again that I'm missing many CDs from my collection in my iTunes. And I don't know any Queens of the Stone Age music. Might have to check them out.

    And Talli--I didn't know she was married to Andrew Lloyd Webber! That seems strange to me for some reason. How old do you think he is?

  11. Checked my iTunes, and I didn't even know I had that Sarah Brightman.

    And one of the best Q songs gotta be "Queen of the Slipstream."

  12. Queen is the only Q group I have, but I can recommend the rather cheesy "Queen of Hearts" by Juice Newton and the fabulously soulful "Quittin' Time" by Mary Chapin Carpenter.


  13. Artists: Queen, Queens of the Stone Age, Quiet Riot, Q-Tip, Quad City DJs, Quincy Jones, Questlove (via The Roots & a ton of producing/writing credits) & Queen Latifah!

    Songs: Quit Playing Games with My Heart by Backstreet Boys, Queer by Garbage, Queen of the Night by Whitney Houston, Queens of Noise by The Runaways, Questions by INXS, Quiche Lorraine by B-52s.


I love getting comments. They're as much fun as getting real snail mail. So please, chime in and tell me what you think!
