The best song from the Innuendo album is the title track.

Innuendo, without a doubt, is my absolute favorite Queen album. My favorite song off the album is a difficult decision. For complexity and utter creativity I'd have to choose 'Innuendo'. However, I'd choose 'The Show Must Go On' and 'These Are The Days of Our Lives' for the emotional values. If we're talking romantically then I'd choose 'I Can't Live With You', because let's face it, every relationship has those moments! Oh, and don't get me started on 'Don't Try So Hard'. That song is stunning. So in conclusion I really don't have a favorite, nor do I have a least favorite song. The entire album is a unique, yet underrated, album. In fact, a few days ago I ran into a 'fellow rocker' in my community and he commented on my T-Shirt saying that he loves that album (News of the World). He started to tell me how he didn't like Queen in the eighties. He thought they probably sucked during that period. But once I mentioned 'Innuendo' he said he'd never even heard of it, nor was he really aware Freddie Mercury was still making music up until his death. For somebody being so stuck up in rock and roll, he had no clue of this album. It really is a shame. In my humble opinion, I'd love to see Queen make a special anniversary edition in 2011. The '20th' anniversary that is.

Probably the title track, or 'Bijou'.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

The whole album is absolutely amazing, but the INNUENDO is my favorite.

Innuendo gets my vote as well.

OTOH, I think Ride The Wild Wind and All God's People are way underrated. RTWW would've made a great single, and AGP is one of those forgotten gems that only few fans seem to appreciate (it's probably got something to do with the lyrics).

i think innuendo is their best album and the show must go on their best and most powerful and meaningful song.

I think Delilah is the best song off the album.

And I love Treasure Moment.

I am ashamed to say that I knew nothing about this album until recently...perhaps five or so years ago. I was a Queen fan, many years ago, then, had some...lost...years, I suppose.

I have listened to Innuendo, and, am amazed it was not a better seller in the US. Just an incredible album, quality wise, and, so special--made even moreso by Freddie's dying efforts. I just don't understand why it wasn't a HUGE hit in the US.

Though I have several of Greatest Hits CDs, and, ANATO, all purchased recently, I've yet to purchase Innuendo. I went to Amazon, and, cripes, there are several different versions, with prices varying by as much as fourty dollars.

Any advice as to which is the best one?
ETA: Went with the original version.

It's got to be the title track - let's be honest, it's the most musically inventive thing Queen had done for years.

It's got everything that made them great in those 6 minutes, drama, atmosphere, emotion, grandiose, brilliant instrumental work, harmonies and soaring Freddie vocals.

It's hard to pick just one...
Though I love the title track I'd choose Don't Try So Hard - for me this is one of the most emotional songs they have ever recorded.

Top 3:
1. Don't Try So Hard
2. Innuendo
3. I'm Going Slightly Mad
