I think Freddies best song was perhaps Radio Ga Ga, at least in the 80's. In the 70's the obvious ones are Bo Rap, We Are The Champions and We Will Rock You, but I always thought some of his more obscure and perhaps ecliptic songs like for example Drowse from At Day At The Races was also a gem (even if that one was sung by Rog).

I think Fred's best song was Hello by Lionel Richie.

How much of a Queen fan would you say you are on a scale of 1 to 10?

I wouldn't give them more than a 2, since they don't know Radio Ga Ga was written by Roger Taylor.

But since they know Drowse, I'll give them a 3.

You know I disagree with you a lot (and vice-versa), but lately you've been writing some priceless stuff. This one, however, takes the prize IMO. Post of the year!

PS: In case you're wondering, it's not a sarcastic comment from me. I really think it was a gr8 reply to the topic.


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.

On the other hand, thinking that a song not sung by Freddie was written by Freddie is at least -1 to me. 2 it remains by my tally.

I think he must've been joking. Either way, mine's Big Spender.

all very good nominations, but for prophecy and singing range, there's no way you can beat the b-side of I Was Born To Love You
...a spot-on piece of song-writing cleverly titled:
"F*ck Me Up The Bum, I Wanna Die Soon"
