The Story:

Queen ended the '70s by releasing one of their most famous songs ever: "Crazy Little Thing Called Love".
It became their first American #1 hit and helped propell the accompanying album The Game to the top
of the charts in both the United Kingdom and the United States. It was the only album to accomplish this feat.
Freddie Mercury wrote the song while in Germany recording. He was in a bubble bath at the Munich Hilton Hotel.
