‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’

Original penned by Freddy Mercury and performed by Queen

Queen recorded this song in 1979 and it’s the closest thing to Rockabilly they ever did. It peaked at number two in UK and number one in US in 1980.
The Stray Cats briefly played it on stage during the 1992 tour, generally as an encore. They also did an acoustic version in England for the BBC 1 radio program “Into The Night”.
In 2000, Brian Setzer recorded a new version with the Brian Setzer Orchestra and included it as a bonus for the Japanese edition of Vavoom.
The Nitros, a British neo-rockabilly band also covered it on their second album Stompin’ beat in the early 90’s.
