I f this single is any indication, Hot Space must be stylistically all over the place. (The used tape of Hot Space I bought for a dollar bought it as soon as I tried to rewind it.) “Calling All Girls” is a rare Roger Taylor single that manages to sound retro and futuristic at the same time. Fine song, I like it the more I listen to it, but I can’t shake the feeling that Jeff Lynne should be singing it. Brian May’s “Put Out The Fire” also seems to fuse different styles, though it likely comes from mating May’s gritty guitar work to a fey vocal treatment. Of course, that may be the effect they were aiming for. Although it charted, I cannot recalling hearing “Calling All Girls” on the radio once (and you never hear it now). Was there a Queen conspiracy?
