Subjects for further review: "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen

You know what makes this song such a ridiculous triumph, even moreso than John Deacon's superb bassline (albeit one stolen from Chic)? It's that, even with his getting loud on the song's second verse, Freddie Mercury keeps his vocals very restrained. Hell, on the first verse and through most of the first pass through the chorus, they're nearly clipped. Freddie keeping a lid on it keeps a lid on the whole song, and as you know, a covered pot comes to a boil that much more quickly.
