Any fool can see that John was a very good song writter. But of all the songs he contributed to Queen, which do you think deserves more praise?

I'd say it;s a tie between Misfire or Who Needs You.

hard to choose, you know you can fit every song he wrote /co-wrote on 1 CD? I made myself a Deaky mix once...

Yes, quite possible that. I'm certain you could probably get it on a mini-disc.

I'd say You and I/Who Needs You.

And I Want to to Break Free. Fuck all people know that Deaky wrote it...you know with the Freddie and the gay song and the 'I've already told you that' quote from Freddie etc. etc.

As a Deaky song it is. Having people assume Freddie wrote it makes me want to hit people and destroy buildings.

You and I

It's one of my favourites...
but is it really underrated? I don't know, most of the fans really love that song.
Maybe it is cos they never played it live...

People have never tried to tell me Freddie wrote it. I can see where they'd think he did, but still - it's not unrecognised and therefore, not underrated.

I couldn't tell you how underrated or whatnot it is, but my favorite John Deacon song is "You and I".

"Who Needs You" - I think this is one of Queen's best songs, but it seems even a lot of fans hate it.

I agree wholeheartedly. In fact 'Spread Your Wings' is one of my favourite Queen songs full stop.

In Only Seven Days is a lovely, understated little song....Plus, it allows the listener to regroup after the wonderful guitar assault of Dead on Time.
