Lately, there's been a lot of moaning about moaning about moaning on this site, so let's try to ease the tension with a silly little poll!

Let's say you're trying to convince someone who really only knows a few of Queen's hits that there is so much more to Queen's music than Bo Rhap, WWRY etc.. Pick five Queen songs that you would use to show just how amazing Queen really is.


These are the days of our lives

They've flown in the swiftness of time.

Master-Stroke+Nevermore (they're so short they can count as one when segued).
'39 (of course!).
Drowse.
Need Your Loving Tonight.
Was It All Worth It


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.

It's Late
The March Of The Black Queen
'39
Made In Heaven
White Queen (BBC)

Although being in the US, I'd strongly consider if I could use Innuendo being that it wasn't a hit here ;)

"side black" counts as one track for me also

so mine would be

1. side black
2. liar
3. great king rat
4. it's late
5. you take my breath away

don't understand why the question should ever be necessary ...unless queen really are a singles-only band not to be taken seriously on an album level?

just a thought: but this may be the case. after all whenever "greatest album lists of all time" are constructed you always get only queen compilations appearing...no opera or races.
whereas other rock bands don't have "best ofs" appearing in these lists...even the who and beatles who released loads of singles....
beatles - revolver, sg pepper, abbey rd
who - live at leeds, who's next

as for flyd and zeppelin - who have both released compilations....only proper studio albums make these lists

so perhaps that's it? queen are a joke rock band
