Killer Queen is a 1974 song by Queen, released as both a single and in the album Sheer Heart Attack. The B-Side of the song was Flick of the Wrist. Freddie Mercury wrote, sung and played the piano on this song. It reached number two on the UK Singles Chart and became their first US hit, reaching number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song is about a high-class call girl and has been characterised as "Mercury's piano-led paean to a Moët-quaffing courtesan".
