"Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time, I'm having a ball…"

Don’t Stop Me Now is one of Queen’s most popular songs, written by Freddie Mercury for their 1978 album Jazz while he was staying in Montreux, Switzerland.

After Freddie died of AIDS-related causes in 1991, Brian May shared that he struggled with the lyrics, as it was about a difficult time in Freddie's life, when he was "taking lots of drugs and having sex with lots of men."

“It was a lot of fun, but I did have an undercurrent feeling of, 'aren't we talking about danger here,' because we were worried about Freddie at this point.

The song never charted in NZ and has grown in popularity over time popularised by consistent airplay, and its use in advertisements for Lotto.
