Without trawling through the entire collection or, Lord help us, my own memory - the best I can currently think of is Tenement Funster's:

"My new Purple shoes been amazing the people next door."

...but I can be convinced otherwise. I am a only a bigot when it comes to race, religion, sport, pub etiquette and politics. And art and literature. And Sting.

Coming Soon To A Forum Near You:
'Worst opening line in a Queen song', 'Best closing line in a Queen Song', and 'Worst closing line in a Queen Song'.

It's gripping stuff.

I love the opening line in "Procession"

Seriously though, off the top of my head, I'd say "Play the Game"

What is there left for me to do in this life
Did I achieve what I had set in my sights
Am I a happy man’ or is this sinking sand...

I agree. Freddie's voice sounds so amazing on this line and the whole atmosphere is very good (even a little spooky).

He's a fairy feller...............
The fairy folk have gathered round the new moonshine,
To see the feller crack a nut at night's noon time,
To swing his axe he swears,
As he climbs, he dares, to deliver..........
The Master-stroke.
Classic Fred.


There must be more to life than this.

Another party's over
And i'm left cold sober
My baby left me for somebody new
I dont wanna talk about it
want to forget about it
wanna be intoxicated with the special brew..

okay okay i know its more than one line but it's just so brilliant, i love it, i love this song and love Freddies voice on it...

Nooooooo for me it has to be...

"In the land where horse is born with eagles wings, and honey bees have lost their stings....." a true genius Freddie was to write such songs *sigh*

The true genius nicked these lines from the "Pied Piper of Hamelin" by Robert Browning:
