Queen – You’re My Best Friend Video & Lyrics from Shaun of the Dead

shaun of the dead does don't stop me now by queen
Shaun: David, kill the Queen!
David: What?
Shaun: The Jukebox!

The classic zom-rom-com Shaun of the Dead features not one, but two Queen songs in their wonderfully amusing British zombie film from 2004. Don’t Stop Me Now is definitely the better showstopper, but You’re My Best Friend is a great end track. If you haven’t seen this fantastic movie (it’s not scary — I promise!) then get ready for a super duper fun treat…something along the lines of Zombieland, but with better music and more sharp Brit cleverness.

I mean, for seriousness, take a look at Shaun playing video games at the end with his best friend, in his ”Man Shed” at the denouement. Is this any different than a slacker’s typical afternoon? Looks relatively normal to me.

Nothing has essentially changed  in their central connection, and that is the ENTIRE point of the movie.[pullquote] We’d be so lucky to have such a closeness in our lives, even if our buddy might bite us by accident.[/pullquote]

 Lyrics from You’re My Best Friend

(Song by Queen, 1976)


Ooh, you make me live
Whatever this world can give to me
It’s you you’re all I see
Ooh, you make me live now honey
Ooh, you make me live

Oh, you’re the best friend that I ever had
I’ve been with you such a long time
You’re my sunshine and I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
Oh, you’re my best friend

Ooh, you make me live

Ooh, I’ve been wandering ’round
But I still come back to you
In rain or shine
You’ve stood by me girl
I’m happy at home
You’re my best friend

Ooh, you make me live
Whenever this world is cruel to me
I got you to help me forgive
Ooh, you make me live now honey
Ooh, you make me live

You’re the first one
When things turn out bad
You know I’ll never be lonely
You’re my only one
And I love the things
I really love the things that you do
Oh, you’re my best friend

Ooh, you make me live

I’m happy at home
You’re my best friend
Oh, you’re my best friend
Ooh, you make me live
You’re my best friend…
