Queen Elizabeth II of England has an image of being highly refined and dignified at all times. Most people probably don't think of her ever letting loose and having carefree fun. But perhaps that image in incorrect.
After NME posted their tweet, the first thing you might expect people to do would be to look at the article for the right answer. But many people on Twitter thought that would spoil fun. Instead. they posted their guesses on what song is the Queen's favorite.
Perhaps the Queen is a big fan of the band Eurhythmics. And perhaps when she here's this particular song of theirs, she thinks they're saying "Reign" instead of "Rain." You'd think she would know the difference between the two words, but that could explain why she likes the song.
Again, this Prince song requires you to believe that the Queen was confused about "rain" and reign. But she clearly loves the color purple, and it's even by an artist with a royal name. Could this be the song?
Perhaps the Queen likes music performed by the band that was named after her. But would she like a song that, based on title alone, suggests that the Queen is actually a murderer? It seems rather unlikely, but you never know.
The Queen is known for her love of Corgis. If one of her own pet Corgis were to get out, it would probably not be a good experience. So we can probably rule out this song, since the subject matter would likely give her too much anxiety.
And the answer to the question, "What's the Queen's favorite song?" is..."Dancing Queen!" At least that's the story as reported by BBC DJ Chris Evans. The story about learning this fact goes back to 2008.
However, this is some dispute that "Dancing Queen" is her absolute favorite song of all time. At her birthday party last year, she actually revealed a list of ten of her favorite songs. The list included many showtunes, such as "Oklahoma" by Howard Keel.
Other songs on the list include "Cheek To Cheek" by Fred Astaire, "Anything You Can Do" from Annie Get Your Gun, and "The White Cliffs Of Dover" by Very Lynn. But no songs by ABBA. So while it appears she's a fan, it might not actually be her favorite.
Unfortunately, this means we can't say with any certainty what the Queen's number one song is. But on the bright side, that means we can keep guessing until she lets us know for sure what it is. Queen Elizabeth, if you're reading this, please let us know as soon as possible.
