What is the most underrated Queen song? I'm not sure which I think is the most underrated cuz so many of them are underrated. In some ways I'd have to say either You Take My Breath Away, Don't Try So Hard, or The Prophet's Song. But it's so hard to say. What do you think?

It's Late or Dead On Time, both should have been hits

I would have to agree with Holly 2003. 

No but really I think Innuendo is their most underrated song. After that it would be It's Late, White Queen, I'm Going Slightly Mad


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

Underrated Queen songs? Well how do we name them for a start?? Theres soo many, I think Queen are the FEW bands with album songs as good as singles??
Can you imagine Queen themselves fighting over which they wanted as a single?? Like the Inneundo album is pure example, I wouldn of gone with Headlong, I woulda chosen I can't live with you or Ride the waild wind. Or even Don't try son hard.
So really Queen had soo many songs to just like
its crazy :)

Innuendo is a strange song that goes on for far too long but i get the meaning behind it and why it is so long

"You And I"

I think it had had decent chance at being a hit if they'd released it as a single.

Tie Your Mother Down / You And I 
7" UK - EMI 2593 4th March 1977 peak pos: #31, 4 wks on chart

Long Away / You And I 
 7" USA - Elektra E45412 7th June 1977 did not chart

(second or third releases from an album invariably don't do so well)

It was the weakest track on ADATR.  As was the case with most of 'Races', the 'son of' song was weaker.  If I need to mention for the newbies, this was a 'son of' YMBF.

Listening to it now, it is exquisite, so much more in depth than various tracks from 'Jazz' , and it kills most of what was on Hot Space and The Works.

btw..........most 'UNDERRATED song'.  Once again, ' Under Pressure'.  Made it to #23 on the charts.  So, it 'rated'.   Has the word 'under' in the title.

Then again, I agree, 'Stairway to Heaven' is Queen's most under rated song.

oy

I agree, or Long Away, even with Brian singing.

Although it was a minor hit here, I think "Need Your Loving Tonight" is underrated!

'It's Late', 'You And I', 'Let Me Entertain You', 'Dead on Time', 'Mustapha', 'Jealousy'. 'You Take My Breath Away', & everything on ANATO besides Bo Rhap & 'You're My Best Friend' (which were hits) & 'Sweet Lady' (which sucks).

Bohemian Rhapsody.  Nobody ever talks about that.  In fact, I can't even remember what album it's on.

Actually, it's Las Palabras De Amor.  Great track.
