OK, I'm going to pick up from the post about the "Jazz" album.  I'm curious what everyone thinks.  What do you think is the worst song (or songs) in Queen's catalog? Just for fun: Let's pick up to three.  Here are mine: "Get Down, Make Love", "My Baby Does Me", and "Staying Power".  (I don't think I'm going to win any friends with my choices, but there you have it.)

I cant believe the same guy who wrote Bohemian Rhapsody would go and write a song like Body Language.

That to me is the worst song that Queen have done.In fact apart from two or maybe even three songs on that Hot Space album,that album was the worst songs that Queen ever did.

Crikey!  what a topic to broach!- I think you've got to accept that the boys were forever trying to break new ground, they refused to stand still, so their efforts should'nt be judged in retrospect-some things worked, somet hings did'nt But they came up trumps most o the time
Final thought, the words 'weakest' and 'Queen'dont really run together.

Delilah!!  Worst song EVER! I had to re-edit Innuendo and remove that track! Embarrassing!

What an original topic.

Why do you want these people's opinions? Everyone on this site is an utter cunt- myself included.

1) "Hot Space" minus "Under Pressure"
2) Pain Is So Close To Pleasure
3) Delilah

Only 3?

Jesus
In the Lap of the Gods (not revisited)
She Makes Me (Stormtrooper in Stilettos)
Sweet Lady (don't hate it, but not a big fan of this one)
The Millionaire Waltz (the only decent part is the heavy part)
Jealousy
If You Can't Beat Them
In Only Seven Days
Fun It (absolute crap)
Leaving Home Ain't Easy
More of That Jazz
Don't Try Suicide (never really cared for this one)
"Flash Gordon" (the entire thing; "The Hero" is just o.k.)
Man on the Prowl (a 5th rate "Crazy Little Thing Called Love")
Machines (Or 'Back to Humans')
Don't Lose Your Head
Party
Khashoggi's Ship
Rain Must Fall
Scandal
My Baby Does Me
All God's People

Not a huge fan of the "Made In Heaven" cd.

I have to go with the Jazz album as a whole (minus the obvious, FBG, Let Me Entertain You, Dreamers Ball), Body Language, and Delilah, but even Delilah has a bitchin guitar solo. I liked everything off of Made In Heaven. Innuendo is my favorite Queen album, but IWIA is my favorite Queen tune...

'Fat Bottomed Girls', 'Tie Your Mother Down', 'We Will Rock You' (it bugs the shit out of me that it ends without having a proper ending!). 'Seven Seas of Rhye'. That's all I can think of for now, there are obviously more though!

1) You Take My Breath Away - the studio version is terrible, I almost never make it through the intro
2) Get Down Make Love - cut the middle part and you have a "listenable" song
3) More Of That Jazz - cut the repeating songs and you have a listenable song
4) Play The Game - I always get headaches from the intro
5) Staying Power
6) Body Language
7) Action This Day
8) Cool Cat
9) Under Pressure - I seriously hate this song, I don't understand how it could be a hit - again, I like the live versions
10) A Hard Life - I almost fall asleep during this song
11) One Vision
12) One Year Of Love
13) Pain Is So Close To Pleasure
14) Friends Will Be Friends
15) Party
16) Khashoggi's ship
17) The Miracle
18) The Invisible Man
19) Rain Must Fall
20) My Baby Does Me

"Cool Cat" is pretty awful. I couldn't exactly call "Misfire" good either. Hell, I'm having trouble even calling it music!

This one is tough considering Queen wrote so many great songs.
Theres only a few I can think of that were poor in Queens history.

I love every little in Queens music and writeing bit
But I don't want to say which is poor and which is good. I love ALL their music. The nuimber 1 reason is because I'm a fan
