Must say, they picked some good tracks in there. I agree that especially 'Was it all worth it' deserves to be more well known. I would add a few others but I think everybody would make their own lists. But this is quite good.

"The March Of The Black Queen" should be included in any such list of Queen non-hit greats! Appreciating this song's significance and brilliance seperates the men from the boys (so to speak) when it comes to Queen fandom. The Queen II album is one of the first albums a new fan should by after they explore the Hits collections.

It´s a shame that they didn´t mention Liar. This song is a must listen!

Great list.
I would have added songs like '39, Rock it (Prime Jive), Drowse, Tenement Funster, etc. instead of other somewhat more commercial choices.

There are several songs in that list that have a great concept, idea or a specific groundbreaking quality (sound, lyric, attitude) that saves them from being regular -even boring- songs. For instance, if I wanted to show "More of that Jazz" to a friend, I would only play the first few seconds, the riff and first chorus and then skip to the next underrated Queen gem.

I liked Was it all Worth it best when it was revisited for Innuendo as The Show Must Go On :).

maybe they're forgetting that GOFLB is actually on the greatest hits....
