What do you think Queen's best epic song is? Bohemian Rhapsody, The Prophet's Song, March Of The Black Queen, Innuendo...?

Bohemian Rhapsody the best song ever made!

I'm not sure. Queen were on Elektra, EMI, Capitol, Hollywood.. not seen any on Epic, though Freddie's first solo album comes close, since it was on Columbia.

Oh, now I get it.. epic.. okay, I'd say 'The Prophets Song' for sure. Whilst I've never been fond of the 'now I know' painful voice segment, it's still a kick-ass song and very well arranged and constructed.

Prophets song - without a shadow of doubt. If you don't believe me listen to it in DVD-A.

It's not very heavy, but Somebody to Love definitely has an awesome pseudo-gospel epic sweep to it.

Tie between Fairy Feller's, Fairy King and Propeth's song.

What about Was It All Worth It?

The Prophet's Song is the most epic one I think.


Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

Yeah, The Prophet's Song is well liked. On the dvd-a - It's just a shame they didn't find the original tapes for that "Now I know..." sequence, because it would've sounded truly great. But they did a pretty good job, considering, huh? It's also good fun to hook up a mic and delay box to sing that part! Ah...

I also have a huge love for Was It All Worth It. Underated? Epic? I dunno!

Peace,
Adam.

Where's the love for March Of The Black Queen? Without this song, there probably wouldn't have been a Bohemian Rhapsody!

March of the Black Queen.

Happy? ;)

Seriously, though, that's my vote.

Also there wouldn`t be Bo Rhap without the other 20 songs Fred wrote in the 1969-1974 period. All of them gave him the knowledge to compose that one.

And yes, I do vote for Bo Rhap


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.
