My main collecting interest is unreleased tracks. By this I mean new songs not on any official release, rather than demos/alternatives of released tracks.

But what to collect? There is a problem in knowing what is available and what is not. While a track may exist, it may still not be available.

To my mind unreleased tracks fall into four categories:

Freely available:
Tracks that have been shared and are very easy to come by. E.g. Self Made Man, Feel Like etc.

Available, but rare:
Tracks that are available, but in the hands of a few collectors, and so not easy to get. E.g. Face It Alone.

In existence, but not available:
Tracks that have been confirmed to exist by a reliable source, but are not known to be in anyone collection, or available for trading. E.g. Victory (I think)

May not exist:
Tracks that are only rumours, and may not exist anymore, if they ever did exist at all.

So I’d like to pick everyone’s brains at to what falls into each category. Here is my understanding, but I’d like any additions/corrections. But please, stick to what you know, not what you think.

I’ve stuck to just Queen tracks here, depending on how this goes we could tackle solo stuff later

Freely Available:
Polar Bear
Silver Salmon
Feelings
Feelings Feelings
Sandbox
Feel Like
Butterfly (Do you consider this a Queen or Brian track?)
A New Life Is Born
Dog With A Bone
I Guess We’re Falling Out
My Secret Fantasy
Robbery
Self Made Man

Available but rare:
Face It Alone

In existence, not available:
Hangman

I am not sure where to place the following:
Victory
Assassin
Friends In Pain
Batteries Not Included
Whipping Boy
Brother of Mine

I welcome your contributions

Try looking at:

That's a good reference source for comletists like you and me.

Yes, it's an excellent site, but sadly it doesn't help with some of these songs

Some of these don't exist. They are just (ahem!) urban myths. Others however are very much real, but are kept in the hands of collectors. And then there are the ones that are in the hands of Queen Productions Ltd. and will remain so until such time that they see fit to release the box sets.

Available but rare,
Two Worlds Apart (Or do you count a Freddie original, which was later re-worked by Queen not as a Queen song?)
