Things to show off the range...Keep Passing The Open Window, Loser In The End, March Of The Black Queen, Is This The World We Created, Bring Back That Leroy Brown, Stone Cold Crazy, The Prophits Song, I'm In Love With My Car...

Well, you get the idea.If I listed everything that I'd have on it then it would probably have to be a tripple CD set.

You can have a hit without it being a hit single.

You must be fucking joking, i hope to christ Jim Beach doesn't read this otherwise it will probably happen for christmas.GH3 included SOLO songs for christs sakes.

I have said it before why hasn't there been separate Box Set releases for Brian and Roger's solo material. They might not have the same broad appeal as the Freddie Box, but in my opinion there would be a lot more content.More albums for a start and in both Brians and Roger's cases the amount of collobrations they have done over the years is massive.
Of course this would probably lead to a huge legal mindfield with all the copyright etc. Well heres hoping!!

I think another greatest hits is the last thing we need.

The only possible thing they could put on there would be shitty collaborations and shitty remixes. Why the fuck bother?!

A GH4 would be more likely to be released than the anthologies.

All we have to look forward to are endless compilations until our dying day.

1. Queen's Love Songs
2. Queen's Party Songs
3. Queen's Drinking Songs
4. The Very Best of Queen
5. Greatest Hits 4

etc, etc, etc

Mind you, a compilation of B-Sides would be most welcome, although I'm not sure we'll see something like that in the foreseeable future (and what happened to the singles collection anyway?)

Let's be realistic. The Q+PR machine will hopefully be a long-lasting collaboration producing many fine fruits, but I can't fathom seeing anything new from the original Queen for a very long time, if at all.
