In light of the recent inane subjects, I've decided to add my own.

Gather round, children, we're going to play a game. Woah, not so close there, geeks.

Here's what we're going to do: take an album you feel could use improvement, and add/subtract tracks, or even reshuffle the order. You can even replicate it on your preferred media player, if only for your own pleasure.

My creation? "Alternate Miracle", or how "The Invisible Man" ("The Miracle"'s working title) should have turned out:

1. Breakthru
2. Khashoggi's Ship
3. The Miracle
4. I Want It All
5. The Invisible Man
6. My Life Has Been Saved
7. Scandal
8. Hijack My Heart
9. Stealin'
10. Hang On In There
11. Was It All Worth It?

Now, if I were to HONESTLY have this album the way I want it, I would've gotten rid of 'The Miracle' and 'The Invisible Man', but 'The Miracle' is one of Freddie's favorite compositions, so I'd feel guilty doing so; and if we got rid of 'The Invisible man', we'd be getting rid of an ace video.

Singles would probably be 'I Want It All', 'Breakthru', 'Invisible Man', 'Miracle', and 'Was It All Worth It', as I think that's a better single choice than 'Scandal'.

Go on, kiddies! Reinvent Queen history! It's quite fun.

I have to disagree about 'Was It All Worth It' being a better choice than Scandal. Granted, neither of them really work too well as singles in their original form, but the little remix edit of Scandal I whipped up before sure beats the heck out of what they would have released for Was It All Worth It:

Now, as for your little game... first of all, 'Queen' as it is but replacing 'Jesus' with 'Mad The Swine'. Then there's Hot Space:

Side A)
1. Under Pressure
2. Put Out The Fire
3. Life Is Real
4. Calling All Girls
5. Las Palabras De Amor
(19:18)

Side B)
6. Back Chat
7. Staying Power
8. Action This Day
9. Soul Brother
10. Cool Cat
(19:26)

My first album is 'Miraculous Hot Magic Works."

1. Under Pressure
2. Hammer to Fall
3. Princes of the Universe
4. Action this Day (guitar solo replacing sax synth)
5. Who Wants to live Forever
6. Hang on in there
7. I want it all
8. Breakthru
9. My Life has been saved
10. Machines

This would be one album encompassing my Queen faves from the 80s. Innuendo would have Slightly Mad and delilah nixed. Finally, Made in Heaven.

1. Mother Love

It would be a short album.

Actually, that's a pretty good edit of 'Was It All Worth It'.
