I adore These are the days of our lives and Mother Love both give me goosebumps and TSMGO is a beautiful song and Love of my Life for what is and for who Freddie dedicated it towards

Also Save Me is like the perfect break up song

I find songs like Doing Alright emotional, because it's one of Brian may's first compositions, and when he included it with Queen, with all the harmonies, and when Queen were still young, fresh and unknown to the world. It's simply breathtaking.  I do agree love of my life is one of the simplest and most beautiful love songs.
Delilah {as bizzare as it may sound} always get's me choked up. I mean Freddie means well with this song, and it's probably one of very few songs from the later years, written personally and with much love for his cat.
I would of done the same thing. Especially after making many hits already, i mean they already made it.
They could do whatever they wanted at that point. "Gimme gimme Fried chicken" haha
Lilly of the Valley also makes me teary eyed. It seems to have that deep meaning, cloaked with some very obscure lyrics by Freddie. He often wrote very poetic, very mature, very personal lyrics that really touched you in the beginning.

strange question..every song is a certain emotion (only maybe except some Roger works, sorry dear :))
closest to me - Friends will be friends - my soul, my character, my life. sadness and joy, sorrow and happiness..
sad songs..love them most of all!!!!

I think Roger was more of a rocker, and lived the good life his career brought him. I do love every song, they ever wrote.
I find the saddest, and most melodic songs to touch my soul more than ever.
Frends will be friends, i can picture singing with all your friends, when you've achieved your goal in life, and have all the friends and things you need to last eternity.

very interesting post Kacoblin.. different people - different opinions.. The thing that attracts me most of all in Friends will be friends - combination of tears and hapiness.. can't explain.. it's like the sun through dark clouds.. my personal impression..

I have to say "The Show Must Go On" makes me emotional. That song just oozes emotion itself. "You Take My Breath Away" and "My Melancholy Blues" also make me emotional.  They can easily fit anybody's situation and purge emotions.
These Songs too:
Somebody To Love
Save Me
White Queen

"Was I All Worth It?"  because of the context in which it closed the album. Though I think it's VERY tongue in cheek. :-) And indeed, if things had gone even worse, it would've played the same role as TSMGO ended up playing.

Face it Alone, also makes me cry in certain aspects. I mean other than the distractions in the background {Property of Queen productions} i still cry over it. The identified lyrics are very strange, yet moving words.
If only it was finished, and could of been put on Innuendo, then that album would have been perfect.

Songs like All Gods People, just don't fit for me, and "Face it Alone" goes hand in hand with that album.

If Queen only:
Love of My Life (ANATO version)
Made in Heaven (Queen version - not Freddie solo)
These Are the Days of Our Lives

Solo Stuff:
Another World (kills me every single time) 
In My Defence
Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow
How Can I Go On (well, it's not truly solo, but you know what I mean) 
Too Much Love Will Kill You (Brian only; duh...'cuz I put it under solo.  Oddly enough, the Queen version doesn't hit me the same way; go figure).

A much lesser known song outsside of the Queen circle of fans, but I have always loved Dear Friends. It is a very sad song, which then tries to lift you up at the end. If anyone has lost a loved one (family member, friend, even pet) they can take a great deal of comfort from this song.

Yup, the guitar solo with the harmonies is outstanding.
