Br...thanks for taking the time to make that list!

I like all of the songs on your list...I'd probably just shift the order around a bit.  I always LOVE reading other fans' list of favorites.

One thing I noticed about your list that I find VERY refreshing is the abundance of 80's and 90's songs on your list.  So many fans discard all of the stuff they did after The Game and it's a shame.

I'm the first to say that 70's Queen is the best...but 80's and 90's Queen is fantastic too.  It's like they were 2 different bands in style and approach.

HaHa...I guess my two favorite bands of all time would be ranked:

1)70's Queen
2)80's and 90's Queen
3) Led Zeppelin

etc...etc.

There's no way I'm gonna name my top 50 but my personal top 5 favorite would be:

1. Bohemian Rhapsody (Like br5946 said, it's inevitable and it's without a doubt the greatest song ever writen)
2. Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy
3. Somebody to Love
4. White Queen
5. Killer Queen

Least Favorites:
1. Fight From the Inside
2. Loser in the End
3. Fairy Feller's Master Stroke
4. More of that Jazz
5. The Miracle


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

I hate these lists but I'm bored so here's 50 songs I love. Not even sure if it's 50 but there you go.

Doing all right
Great king rat
My fairy king
The Night comes down
Father to son
White queen
Ogre battle
March of the black queen
Funny how love is
Brighton Rock
Tenement funster
Flick of the wrist
Lilly of the valley
Now I'm here
In the lap of the gods
Death on two legs
You're my best friend
Sweet lady
You take my breath away
The millionaire waltz
Drowse
All dead all dead
Spread your wings
Get down make love
It's late
My melancholy blues
Jealousy
Dead on time
In only seven days
Don't stop me now
Play the game
Dragon attack
Need your loving tonight
Coming soon
Cool cat
Under pressure
Tear it up
Man on the prowl
Keep passing the open windows
I go crazy
One vision
Friends will be friends
Who wants to live forever
Princes of the universe
I want it all
Breakthru
Hang on in there
Innuendo
Headlong
A winters tale


Don't shun it!

i'm not going to dismiss your list...because everyone is entitled to their opinion

but one comment: you say bo-rhap at no1 was "inevitable"...if that is so, why did you not include
Freddies original 3-songs in one "bo rhap conception"? Fairy Fella/Nevermore/Black Queen

find it hard to believe

====================

Quite simply, because those three songs didn't change the rules of pop music at the time - BoRhap did.  And they were not nearly as accessible.

BoRhap is not only Queen's greatest song, but also one of the most groundbreaking and influential pieces of music of the last 100 years.

I really like Paulosham's list, only I would switch 'All Dead, All Dead' for 'the Fairy Feller's Master Stroke' and Headlong for 'The Show Must Go On' or 'All Gods People' ..(way to go Paulosham!)

This will be tricky! I find that my favorite songs are not generally the ones I listen to the most. Something like Coming Soon would end up as number one, purely because I listen to it loads before going out at night :o)

It's very much interesting to see everyone's lists. I think I'll add my own list to this as well. Though by the looks of it, mine differs greatly from the others.

1. Scandal
2. I'm Going Slightly Mad
3. Friends Will Be Friends
4. You Don't Fool Me
5. Flick Of The Wrist
6. Death On Two Legs
7. Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy
8. Back Chat
9. No One But You (Only The Good Die Young)
10. Keep Passing The Open Windows
11. Keep Yourself Alive
12. I Want It All
13. Headlong
14. The Miracle
15. Doing Alright
16. Is This The World We Created?
17. Spread Your Wings
18. Father To Son
19. Mustapha
20. Jealousy
21. These Are The Days Of Our Lives
22. Misfire
23. In The Lap Of The Gods... Revisited
24. Mother Love
25. It's A Beautiful Day
26. Dear Friends
27. You're My Best Friend
28. Save Me
29. Get Down, Make Love
30. Was It All Worth It
31. Princes Of The Universe
32. Invisible Man
33. Pain Is So Close To Pleasure
34. Let Me Live
35. Funny How Love Is

I did 35, I was planning to go to 50, but I'm growing too tired to continue. I will mention though, that my list isn't set in stone, it actually fluctuates quite often. Also, I find myself to enjoy newer Queen rather than old Queen. You'd be more likely to catch me listening to say The Miracle, Innuendo, or Made In Heaven than you would say Queen 2 or News Of The World or Night At The Opera. I'm not saying I don't like the older songs, I just seem to favor the newer. But yes, these lists are fun to make!!

Jay Dubbman...what an awesome(and somewhat surprising) list!

LOL...Yes making lists like these can be tiring and frustrating...with a LOT of "second-guessing" as to if you've got it "right".  That's probably why I don't do them much...I'm too lazy.

But I love reading the lists of others.  Sometimes, it makes me realise "YES...that song IS good!".

I love The Miracle, Innuendo and Made In Heaven, as well!
