I love em to bits but they did record some stinkers, let´s face it. So in no particular order......

The Invisible Man  
Really appalling, turgid and offensive re-working of Ray Parker Juniors ´´Ghostbusters´´complete with annoying electro bass.
Man on the Prowl
A Complete bollocks attempt to retread ´Crazy little thing´ territory with Shakin Stevens style guitar solo. Should have given the whole song to him.
Misfire
The Clue is in the title. Thankfully JD´s songwriting got better.
My Baby Does Me
Yes I should think she probably does but not while listening to this surely. (Original Vinyl of the Miracle criminally overlooked ¨Hang on in There¨ in favour of this - what were they thinking of)
Delilah
Sorry Fred but a song about your cat has no place on a Queen Album. Even a GOOD song about your cat has no place on a Queen album and this is not a good song infact the song would probably pee all over your chippendale suite too. 
Was it all Worth it
"We bought a drumkit, thought we were perfect"....on the strength of these lyrics ´they, sadly, weren´t perfect at all - nor was it "Worth it". 
The Hitman
It wasn´t "A Hit" man.
Coming Soon
This song is not offensive - it just bores me beyond continence and that, for Queen, is unforgivable. 
Don´t lose your Head
Quite difficult not to lose your head when there is noise but no song.
Friends will be Friends
Shallow, Mawkish, sentimental lighter - waving at it´s very worst from Queen´s worst album.Actually in my experience Friends WON¨T be Friends unless your friend happens to be a Labrador.

Yeah, I cringe when some of the songs you mentioned are played.  I do like Misire though.  Delilah, well I like the guitar work.  Have to ask when these songs are included on an album, did Queen really think these are good songs or was it all they had? Should include Party and Kashoggis ship.
Trite lyrics sung in a bad American drawl .  Arghh

I don't agree with many of your choices.

The Invisible Man: when I first heard TIM, I did feel that it was basically a reworking of 'Ghostbuster's but now, once I acknowledge the debt it owes, I actually like it. I like Freddie's vocals and I love the naming of the 4 members.

Man on the Prowl: one of my least favourite songs on The Works, along with IAHL, but I like this song. Not a great song by any means, and it probably shouldn't have copied such an amazing song, but it is no way IMO one of Queen's worst songs.

Misfire:I love this song. I know, I'm probably the only one, but I really adore it. John had this ability to bring out some of Freddie's best and smoothest vocals, and this was no exception. A song that is far too short, whenever I listen to SHA, I always make it a point to listen to this song. I think it's fantastic; and yes, while it's not John's best song as writer (that honour goes IMO to In Only Seven Days) I do think it's pretty well written.

Was it all Worth it: not the best written song, but Freddie's vocals were superb, and sometimes, that's enough for me. The Miracle was IMO Queen's worst album, but Freddie's vocals were magnificent as usual, and this is IMO one of the album's best songs. I do think that it is one of the album's best written songs as well.

The Hitman: not a great song, but not a terrible one either. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Innuendo, so with a few exceptions, none of the songs are among my favourites. However I don't think this is among Queen's worst
songs.

Friends will be Friends: alright I'll probably be shot for this, but I love FWBF. I really do. Yes, it's sentimental, but I think that Freddie's vocals are wonderful and I do think it's well written. Plus, Brian is superb.

I agree with you for the most part except for Invisible Man and Was it All Worth it. Those IMO are the best 2 songs off of the Miracle.

Now, if you want shit Queen songs, check out Hot Space. That is some shit right there.

Don't worry.  You aren't the only one who loves Misfire.  It's my favorite song that was written by John Deacon.

To be honest, if you put all of those tracks on one album, it would still be loads better than The Cosmos Rocks![img=/images/smiley/msn/tounge_smile.gif][/img]

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the following songs-

Bohemian Rhapsody
Don't stop me now
Killer Queen
Crazy little thing called love
Innuendo
Somebody to Love
The Show must go on
Hammer to Fall
A Kind of Magic
And of course...Drowse.

The melody is almost identical to that of 'Ghostbusters.' Don't listen to the lyrics; listen to the music instead, and you'll notice the similarities.
