Songs like Fun It, Las Palabras de Amor, The Millionaire Waltz, and Keep Passing the Open Windows definitely deserve more love.

But Dead on Time needs it the most!

Fried Chicken is exactly right on "You and I" and "In Only Seven Days". Also, I think "Tear it Up" gets an unfair knock sometimes. It was just what it was supposed to be: a nice little rocky live number.

Most overrated song for me? Hijack My Heart. It gets named as the best b-side now and then, but I never cared for it....Get Down Make Love, too. I never understood why they kept playing it in concert after the NOTW tour. During the Game and Hot Space tours too? They could've tried Sail Away Sweet Sister or Dancer instead of that tedious middle section.

I know, sorry about that...I just felt like ranting...Another underrated gem for me is Who Needs You, just a nice breezy song.

Let me tell you a funny story:

I had headphones on the first time I listened to Who Needs You, and at the end I thought, "Well, this is a nice instrumental."

But when I look in the liner notes for the album I found out that it had lyrics. I played it on my computer and figured out the problem...the right speaker on my headphones was broken!

I had a funny feeling about those random backup vocals in the middle of an instrumental, though.... :)

underated by fans or the general public? i think most songs on ADATR deserve mass recognition esp. Millionaire Waltz and the terrific You and I.

Prophets Song too rarely gets a mention.

Probably the epic songs like Prophet's Song and The March of the Black Queen... I love both of them so much but I rarely play them. I guess I don't want to tire of them the way I have of Bo Rhap.

Perhaps I should plug my web page link in my signature... so that one could compare their under-rated and over-rated songs against the opinions of 30 Queenzoners?????

These were the top twenty five songs in Eggy and my poll.

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
SOMEBODY TO LOVE
THE MARCH OF THE BLACK QUEEN --------------------
THE SHOW MUST GO ON
LOVE OF MY LIFE
THESE ARE THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES
KILLER QUEEN
LIAR
WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER
SPREAD YOUR WINGS -------------------------------
GOOD OLD-FASHIONED LOVER BOY
ONE VISION
PRINCES OF THE UNIVERSE
WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS
THE PROPHETS SONG -------------------------------
WE WILL ROCK YOU
UNDER PRESSURE
DEATH ON TWO LEGS
ITS LATE ----------------------------------------
I WANT IT ALL
KEEP YOURSELF ALIVE
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST
BREAKTHRU
TEO TORRIATTE -----------------------------------

The five marked songs fared pretty well in poll, so they are not too underrated.

Dreamers Ball, for some inexplicable reason ranked 92 out of 188 songs. :(
