Well, I like the piano intros for "Death on Two Legs" and "Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon." The first is brooding and serious, the second is light and playful.

I always kinda liked My Life Has Been Saved, and for solo songs, There Must Be More to Life Than This has a nice little piano opening.

My Melancholy Blues
Death On Two Legs (My favorite intro)
You Take My Breath Away (very sad)
Seven Seas Of Rhye
Too Much Love Will Kill You


And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...

As an aside, I listened to Forever today for the first time in ages, and it stands up really well. Still gorgeous after all these years.

In The Lap Of The Gods


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.

Not only the intro, but the whole piano line from "Don't Stop Me Now" is incredible. I wish I knew how to play piano just so I could play that whenever I wanted. That and the three opening chords from "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road".

Roger that, FriedChicken.

Ha ha, get it? *cue rimshot* LOL, get it? Rimshot? Roger plays the...

Yeah, anyway, I can't believe I forgot about the intro to Love Of My Life, since I can actually play it. The whole two hands. The thing is, I can only play up to the first "break," which is like 7 seconds in.

I've always really liked the opening to Too Much Love Will Kill You myself.
