For what I know, there is a song I'd always liked them to play but it was never performed live, and it is "You and I"...

"Good old-fashioned lover boy" was a standard live track in the 1977 tour and you can get a beautiful live version in the Earl's Court audio and video concert...

About never performed live tracks, I have some doubts on "The loser in the end" and "Some day one day" from Queen II, "Good Company" from ANATO, "Drowse" from ADATR, but there are surely many, many other ones...

I hope I was useful

I don't believe God Save The Queen was ever performed live by Queen. Brian apparently did it solo for the Queen's Jubilee or something though.

Also the majority of the Flash Gordon album was ignored live for some reason.

Most of the songs on FG were instrumental, so it's boring to play live I think (I like the Guitar Solos though). The two songs with lyrics (Flash and The Hero) were played live. I believe even Vultan's Theme was played live (in Japan I think). The other thing was FG was overshaddowed by The Game.

Machines was performed, during the synth solo of Spike he played parts and he (or somebody) started to sing "Back to Humans". I know it`s not the full song but for that matter they only did a fragment of Bicycle, or Killer Queen, or GOFLB, or Millionaire Waltz...


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.

But those last four songs resembled the original versions much more than Spike's solo did. I don't think it's fair to compare those to Machines in that respect.
