I'm new. Not sure if this has been discussed before. What is your favourite B-side? There are a few to choose from. I really like I Go Crazy and Hijack My Heart.

Brian's "I Go Crazy" is very interesting, really should have made the album (if the others didn't hate it)...
I really like the b-sides of the "Miracle" era, "My life has been saved" & "Stealin'" but for purely sentimental reasons my vote goes to Roger's "A Human Body"...welcome to the fora

If Mad The Swine counts as a B-Side it would be that. If not, Soul Brother.

Most of these B-sides are very average songs.

See What A Fool I've Been and Soul Brother are great tracks, but far too spoofy to be taken seriously. Hang On In There is the only one that could've been good enough to actually be an album.

well, we are talking about non-album B-sides here! Hang on in there was on the miracle cd, so it's kinda an album track...

I would say
1: A Human Body
2: Soul Brother
3: Lost Opportunity

I disagree with Wizard however, I think Soul Brother is definitely good enough to be on Hot Space.
Overall I think the B-sides are a very fun batch of songs to listen to.

Also,@joshua_macrae, Self Made Man wasn't a B-Side

In order:
- I go Crazy ( I still don`t understand WHY they didn't put in The Works Album...only 9 songs)
- Hijack My Heart
- Soul Brother ( If¨"cool cat" was in Hot Space Album...)
- Hang On In There
- Human Body

Come to think of it, I'd agree with you on that.

In fact, we once had a thread here where we discussed alternative album track listings. For Hot Space, I scrapped Body Language, moved Cool Cat to side A, added Soul Brother to side B, and swapped the sides. That likely would've made a pretty major difference in Queen's career in the US. But, as always, hindsight is 20/20.

What was the thread called? I love those type of things.
