Mine are

1. The Show Must Go On
2. Death On Two Legs
3. One Vision
4. Under Pressure
5. Scandal
6. Mustapha
7. Keep Yourself Alive
8. I Can't Live Without You (Queen Rocks '97 Version)
9. Innuendo
10. Hammer To Fall

Although it is without a doubt one of the greatest songs ever, I was never very fond of the 'Bohemian Rhapsody' intro.
I would have liked it more if they started it with the "Mama Just Killed A Man..." intro that they use when the song is played live.

Intro on A Day at the Races is a good one. How about Brian May's The Dark.


Freddie: "Yes, we'll have a great big cock fly over the crowd!"

Roadies: "Yeah! Great Idea!"

Freddie: "And it will fly into a great big mouth with a moustache!"

Forgot about Ogre Battle- the intro with this frantic riff is just awesome- Metallica could be proud of this kind of lick...
