Delilah
Body Language
Get Down Make Love

It almost made me cry to realise the person who wrote Somebody to Love, Bo Rhap, Millionaire Waltz, Love of My Life, etc. came up with such shite.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Vultan's Theme.  

Tears of joy, mind you.  If you play it on loop, it's great make-out music.

It's going to be the most "popular" answer - These Are The Days Of Our Lives, which gets me all the time.  But I think the sadness is kinda synonymous witrh the video, because it was Freddie's last moments on camera....it's a beautiful song, but if you take away the fact that Freddie was dying and then remember the fact that it was a (John?) composition, it would probably just be a another song, and would maybe be matched by efforts like Save Me and Who Wants To Live Forever.  Mother love is also only sad because we associate it with Freddie's passing - without that, it would be just another great Queen song.  Are there actually *any* sad Queen songs when you take them for what they are and don't add the poignancy of Freddie's death?

"The Show Must Go On" does it for me...if I'm in a very reflective mood, that is.

Love of my life (Brian May, Brixton '93). Heard it when it was first released and the dedication from Brian to Freddie was something special back than. Over the years Brian singing LOML in dedication of Freddie became a bit of a cliché but back in the early nineties when Freddie had just passed it was very moving....

These are the days of our lives. Especially if i watch the video too.
Bijou also brought tears to my eyes when i saw Q+PR in Wembley Arena 2008 (The only time i saw the guys live). It was for me unexspected and a lovely thing to see Freddie there while Brian was playing.


What a great band!
