4 stars Not trying to write an essay here, everyone knows usage of singles. These two would be good choice for a lot of people, but not for me. While I can enjoy Somebody to Love, I hate the other one. "Somebody" is of what I call typical Queen song. Melodic, using of more vocal layers and opera styling. This song (even that it can be quite weary after some time) is perfect, no doubt here. But "White" fails to offer these attributes, which I found not just typical (mostly) for Queen golden age, but also vital for their music. Am I right ?

3 stars This is a Queen single released in 1976. While "Somebody to Love" is obviously the more known song, and a Queen classic, I find the flip side of tis single, "WHite Man" to be the more enjoyable of the two. Possibly I have just heard "Somebody to Love" too much and it has grown tiresome in the way "Killer Queen" has also for me. "White Man" is a somewhat strange number for Queen. It seems to be a rare "political" song from the band. Overall, almost 10 minutes of good, solid Queen from their classic era. Easily 3 1/2 stars rounded down since it's just a single
