This was released as a double A-side single with "Bicycle Race
." The songs ran together on the album, and were often played that way by radio stations. The year before, Queen released "We Will Rock You
" and "We Are The Champions
" as a double A-side. They are still usually played together by radio stations.
Each song has a reference to the other in the lyrics: in "Bicycle Race," a lyric runs: "Fat bottomed girls, they'll be riding today, so look out for those beauties, oh yeah." In "Fat Bottomed Girls" the closing call shouts "get on your bikes and ride!," linking the two songs together.
