Damn...that's a tough one...now that I think about...I don't recall a single solo that I didn't like...well here's my five...I wish it was more like ten...but these are the five that come to mind...in no real order of course...
-Brighton Rock (Live and Studio):Gotta love that echoplex...is really a showcase of Brian getting a lot of kick ass sounds out of his guitar...
-I Want it All: Here Brian flies with his orchestrated precision through the pentatonic forms...
-The Night Comes Down: This guitar part just stirs something in you when hearing it...All of his work does really...
-Too Much Love Will Kill You (Guitar Instrumental
Version): This is one of the very few guitar parts that is as beautiful and penetrating as Freddie's vocal...
-Bohemian Rhapsody:I don't think I need to explain the reason for picking this...legendary.

These are the first that come to mind...I could list off another 10 or 20 that are phenominal...


"Oh oh people of the earth

Listen to the warning the seer he said

For those who hear and mark my words

Listen to the good plan." -Brian May

I love the solos where Brian takes the song to a new level. There are times when he upgrades a song from merely good to great on the basis of his solo alone. Songs I would put into that category are: Back Chat, You Don't Fool Me and of course, Bijou.

Brian makes "Keep Yourself Alife" very special, I think.

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

Jimi Hendrix he was good

These Are The Days Of Our Lives has a rather beautiful solo, particularly the last little bit which Roger ruined in the tribute concert by doing a roll over it.
