Hi everyone, we've all chosen our favorite songs but now it's time to choose our favorite videos.....I'm going make a list of my favorite 5:

1-I'm Going Slightly Mad:
The first time I saw this video I was amazed, it was just sooo "MAD", so original, very artistic, great!

2-Innuendo:
Even though there was no participation of any of the Queen members in this video just the way it was made was incredible, the DaVinci, Netzings, Picasso and Pollack effect was just something!!!

3-The Are The Days Of Our Live:
This video (and song) touched my heart the first time I saw it, it's full of emotion, happiness, sadness but above all a very sweet Freddie in it.

4-I Want To Break Free:
If I can remember right I think this is how I got to know who Queen were....I mean 4 guys dressed in drag in a video like this isn't easy to forget!

5-Breakthru
Nice video to see all the band members being themselvs and having a fun time on a nice summer day!



Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'

1. I'm Going Slightly Mad - Just a fun, crazy video. I like how each lyric is represented.

2. The Invisible Man - The band just like they're having a lot of fun, and I love how Brian multiplies during his solo.

3. Hammer To Fall - A typical concert video, but it's got great energy.

4. I Want To Break Free - The middle section is a little odd, but the rest is hilarious.

5. These Are The Days Of Our Lives - Simple, but touching. The black and white fits perfectly.

1. I Want to Break Free- I like seeing them in drag and since I'm also a Kids in the Hall TV show fan, I'm used to it. Besides, Roger is REALLY convincing and I think that is funny.

2. The Invisible Man- I like the concept of them coming to life from a video game and I just thought it was cool when I first saw it.

3. Radio Ga Ga- This was the first Queen video I remember even seeing despite the fact that I was only 3 when it came out.

4. Save Me- I like the animation and live action combination.

5. The Miracle- Those kids had them down to a "T" and they looked like they knew what they were doing. I thought it was so cute.

I don't have any vids on here after "The Miracle" album because I ahven't seen them. Now I'm really waiting for GVH3 to come out so that I can see them.

5- You're My Best Friend- love the candles, fits the song very well

4- Save Me - just a really nice, subtle video

3- Breakthru - they were having fun, not something to be overlooked at that time

2- Invisible Man - they had even more fun on this one, it's a great video, some of the effects seem dated, but the joy still comes across

1- my favorite, surprisingly, is: It's a Hard Life
I thought I was gonna hate this video before I first saw it, due to negative comments by certain band members (yes I mean you Mr. Meddows Taylor!), but it was lavish, dramatic, romantic, over the top, and very very Freddie! I love it.

honorable mention to: Crazy Little Thing, the naughty version of Bicycle Race, Scandal and Radio GaGa....

1. Breakthru -- great song + awesome video

2. Scandal -- probably 'cos I'd never seen the video before 'til I purchased the Greatest Hits II DVD

3. Headlong -- hopefully will see more footage from Queen in the studio from 1990 on the GH3 DVD

4. It's A Hard Life -- don't really understand the whole plot of the video but still like it

5. These Are The Days Of Our Lives -- very poignant knowing the pain Freddie was in at the time

You know, I've always liked Scandal. I know Brian and Roger hate it because it didn't make as big an impact as they would've liked, but I think it's a good video. Nothing revolutionary, but it's not as bad as they make it out to be. I love the colors, too.
