Let me get this straight. You're complaining about Queen releasing the same stuff over and over again - and then propose to compile a set with previously released stuff?

I say 'submit your favorite song from each album' list (or your top 20 or......)

oh....that's been done a dozen times or so?  Sorry.

Any Queen fan knows that Queen have 15 studio albums. You can't disqualify "Flash Gordon" because it's a soundtrack.

Stone Cold Crazy
Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon
The Millionaire Waltz
Fight From The Inside

Rock It
Dancer
Machines
One Year Of Love
My Baby Does Me
Ride The Wild Wind
Mother Love

Er, it's 16 actually. As far as QPL are cocerned, "The Cosmos Rocks" counts, regardless of whether some people on here don't like it....

9 of those are already on Hits comps lol

That aside, isn't this what the "deep cuts" albums are getting at?

No matter how you dress it up, it would just be another re-hash of something we already have.

@ NOTWMEDDLE

I didn't really understand that last post of yours.... is the point of this post (silly as it is) not about having a compilation of the more obscure stuff instead of yet another hits collection?  Yours is a hits collection, with bonus tracks of yet more "well known" material.  Don't you think another hits one kinda defeats the purpose?

It said homemade compilations, and I technically made my own. What's the gripe?

I'm not the fat oaf on Family Guy at least.

==========================================================================================
There's no gripe, I just didn't understand why you'd suggest something that's essentially another hits comp when the whole purpose was to achieve an alternate to that.  There's not even anything in what I've said that would suggest that I have a gripe - I just meant I didn't understand your thinking behind it.

So you're saying I am?  Nice.  Good to know that as soon as someone raises a point about something you've said, you'll resort to insults instead of engaging in discussion.  What's YOUR gripe?
