Queen Chart positions in Polish's biggest radio. There was no official chart back then in terms of sales so (as Billboard claimed) the only reliable way of measuring a band's success was to look at airplay stats:

Entry date/Title/Peak
15/05/1982 Body Language #3
26/06/1982 Las Palabras de Amor (The Words of Love) #1
26/06/1982 Staying Power #21
02/10/1982 Calling All Girls #6
04/02/1984 Radio Ga Ga #1
28/04/1984 I Want to Break Free #5
04/08/1984 It's a Hard Life #11
06/10/1984 Hammer to Fall #24
21/12/1985 One Vision #33
26/04/1986 A Kind of Magic #18
27/05/1989 I Want It All #13
12/08/1989 Breakthru #26
30/09/1989 The Invisible Man #39

08/02/1991 Innuendo #3
22/02/1991 I'm Going Slightly Mad #16

10/01/1996 A Winter's Tale #8
22/03/1996 You Don't Fool Me #3
19/07/1996 Let Me Live #9
29/11/1996 Too Much Love Will Kill You #11
28/02/1997 Mother Love #29
21/11/1997 No-One But You (Only the Good Die Young) #32
25/09/1998 Another One Bites the Dust #40
03/12/1999 Under Pressure #34
20/12/2002 A Winter's Tale (2002) #25

And here is Freddie Mercury on the same chart:

Entry date/Title/Peak
20/10/1984 Love Kills #13
11/05/1985 I Was Born to Love You #20
20/07/1985 Made in Heaven #22
07/08/1992 Barcelona #1
08/01/1993 In My Defence #1
23/07/1993 Living on My Own #3
03/12/1993 Time #15
01/12/2006 Love Kills (Star Rider Remix) #15

Too Much Love Will Kill You #1

Queen: 5 #1's
Freddie Mercury: 2 #1's
Brian May: 1 #1

They were big in Poland back then. Interestingly "Las Palabras De Amor", "Barcelona" and "In My Defense" were #1's. They didn't reach that position in any other country I know about.
