Hey everybody,

I was wondering... what do you think is the best Queen-song ever??

My favourite is definitely Boh Rhap, but I'd like to know how many people think the same about that....


"Fuck them darling, if they just don't get it!"

Freddie Mercury

It has to be either Ogre Battle, doin' alright, Spread your wings or Black queen.

I can't decide. As for the Bo Rhap, I think radio and video stations over the years have personally BEAT THE LIVING CRAP OUT OF IT!!

Radio tends to do that. I've heard Bohemian Rhapsody, WWRY/WATC and Another One Bites The Dust enough to last me for a lifetime.

Anyway, I'm not sure what the best song is. My favorite song is always changing, but at the moment, I think it's White Queen. Or The Show Must Go On. Get back to me later and it'll probably be different.

The show must go on is definitely a good one too... I also like these are the days of our lifes.... If you know the story behind it... it's very touching...

Like most fans my favourite song changes regularly depending on my mood, at the moment my favourites are "Spread Your Wings", "The Fairyfeller's Masterstroke" and "Seaside Rendezvous". I agree that "Bohemian Rhapsody" has been overplayed and now I find it hard to really enjoy listening to it.

March of the Black Queen, Prophet's Song and My Fairy King.

Of the singles/hits - Somebody to Love & Bohemian Rhapsody. Innuendo & TSMGO are excellent too.

"Calling All Girls
Action This Day
My Baby Does Me"

You've got to be f*ckin' kidding me. No-one can seriously think these are amongst Queen's best works.

Hmmm.... This is kind of tough to do actually. So many of them are great, but the best one is definitely debatable. In my opinion, Bohemian Rhapsody is the best, and maybe Somebody To Love. Of course, those two are my favorite, so that could be why I think they are best. Even though Bohemian Rhapsody has been overplayed like no other, you can't deny it is genius and one of kind.

In my opinion, there is no "best Queen songs ever". Why? There are some songs that are more well known for various reasons, and are overrated, e.g. BohRap, WWRY/WATC
There are lesser known - slash - more underrated tunes that could equally be as good, e.g. Delilah, Was It All Worth It

I can't even pick a specific Queen song, because they all sound good to me (except for the Wyclef Jean AOBTD remixes, and Louisa May demo WWTLF)

I'ts so funny to read that there are so many different songs chosen while Boh Rhap is the number one in greatest hits of all time, that's why I was wondering how you thought about that.

But allright... all Queen-songs are very good...
