I know that this topic has been overdone too many times, but I would like your help on this one. I am putting a compilation CD together of the very best Queen songs. Not just the ones just released as singles or the popular ones, the really great compositions that they did. This list is a draft, I want your suggestions and changes, all help appreciated.

Here's my list:

1-Innuendo
2-Under Pressure
3-Tie Your Mother Down
4-Another One Bites The Dust
5-Fat Bottomed Girls
6-My Fairy King
7-'39
8-Who Wants To Live Forever
9-The Prophets Song
10-Love Of My Life
11-A Kind Of Magic
12-I Want It All
13-White Queen (As It Began)
14-We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions (my version is these two combines, so I've listed them as one entry)
15-Somebody To Love
16-March Of The Black Queen
17-Dont Stop Me Now
18-These Are The Days Of Our Lives
19-The Show Must Go On
20-Bohemian Rhapsody
21-God Save The Queen

All help appreciated

Hmmm... I am seriously considering replacing some of the songs with others suggested, ones like Dont Try So Hard, either Mother Love of Too Much Love Will Kill you, but the problem there is I'd have to decide between the Queen version and Brian's version. I think that I will take out Fat Bottomed Girls and I Want It All, and I should have thought of Millionaire Waltz and It's Late. I am also struggling as to whether to replace My Fairy King for Keep Yourself Alive or Liar, probably Liar.
And I'm not sure about Don't Stop Me Now, but I think that it would be a good inclusion, and I've always thought it is a very good song.

Well, here's a list with those songs I'm going to take out and those I am going to put in:

Innuendo (Definite)
Under Pressure (maybe)
Tie Your Mother Down (Definite)
Another One Bites The Dust (Definite)
Fat Bottomed Girls (out)-Millionaire Waltz or It's Late in
My Fairy King (out)-Keep Yourself Alive
'39 (Definite)
Who Wants To Live Forever (Definite)
The Prophets Song (Definite)
Love of My Life (maybe)-if not, Don't Try So Hard
A Kind Of Magic (considering switching this for Brighton Rock, and then putting this in place of I Want It All)
White Queen (As It Began)
We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions-maybe switch this for Don't Stop Me Now, and put in I'm In Love With My Car or take out both, put in I'm In Love With My Car and Was It All Worth It)
Somebody To Love-Definite
The March Of The Black Queen-Definite
These Are The Days Of Our Lives
The Show Must Go On
Bohemian Rhapsody
God Save The Queen
