I'm sure this has been done before, but I'm interested in knowing everyone's favorite B-side of Queen?

I love "Hijack My Heart" and "Soul Brother."

In this order:
My life has been saved, much better than the made in heaven version.
I go crazy
Hang on in there
Soul Brother

That's a tough one but gotta say Hang On In There without a doubt.

Hijack My Heart & Soul Brother are also awesome & would be a close second.

- Mad the Swine (if it counts, at least it's on the Headlong CD-single)
- Hijack My Heart
- Hang on in there (though I think of this song as an album-track. The Miracle was the first album/CD I bought)

Tough one. I love A Dozen Red Roses For My Darling. I love Hijack My Heart. I love Hang On In There. Although I'd say these are more for nostalgia than actual artistry.

I've always thought "Hang On In There" was part of the album, since "The Miracle" HR cd was the first album I bought.  If it's considered a b-side, then add that to my list!

Another vote for "My Life Has Been Saved".

I was thrilled when I saw it was included on the Made In Heaven album (it made me feel like the band appreciated it as much as I did) - even though I prefer the original version because of Brian's guitar intro and Freddie's extra ad-libbed vocals towards the end of the track.

Stealin'
Hijack My Heart
My Life Has Been Saved

In fact, The Miracle sessions were pretty amazing. I Guess We're Falling Out is one of the best non-released tracks, in my opinion. Even if it sounds like a demo. Dog With A Bone is pretty ace as well. A duet between Roger and Freddie never gets old.

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

That one's on Sheer Heart Attack.  I think the topic starter is referring to the B-sides that weren't on the LPs.

My pick is Soul Brother.  It's Queen's answer to The Beatles' Glass Onion, and all the Queen musical trademarks are there.  And it's the only one of the bunch that was actually a strong enough song in its own right to be on an album.

See What A Fool I've Been is a close second.  Freddie's spoof vocal is nothing short of brilliant.

But if we can include Hang On In There, then it's better than both of these songs combined.

Regardless of whether they also appeared on albums or not, my favourites are (in no particular order):

Flick Of The Wrist
Lily Of The Valley
White Queen
Keep Passing The Open Windows
Hijack My Heart
My Life Has Been Saved

From that lot, my absolute favourite is MLHBS.

I've always considered Hang On In There a non-album b-side, as it wasn't on the vinyl or cassette release.  The CD releases tended to have the b-sides & extended versions as bonus extras IMO.
