Hi,

which is your favorite Queen song written or sung by Roger?
That's the list:

-Modern times Rock & Roll
-Loser in the End
-Tenement Funster
-I'm in Love with my Car
-Drowse
-Sheer Heart Attack
-Fight from the Inside
-Fun it ;-)
-More of that Jazz
-Rock it (prime jive)
-A Human Body
-Coming soon
-Action this day
-Calling all girls
-Radio GaGa
-A Kind of Magic
-Don't loose your head
-A dozen red roses ;-)
-Hijack my heart
-Heaven for everyone
I do not mention the Co-written ones on Works, Miracle, Innuendo and MIH because it is not really obvious, except Breakthru and Invisible Man I think.

My favorite is - well hard to tell - maybe Tenement Funster, which has the taste of a rebellion, but Flight from the Inside has IMHO the best overall sound, and the one I dislike is More of that Jazz, because it bores me quite a lot. I realized that Roger got more and more softer in the last years, not that rocker like in the 70s, even his lyrics changed from Cars and bars to ... well, something not to be indentified :)

So, I am curious of your favorites, c'mon! :)


Special thanks to Arif Mardin who arranged and produced some hot and spacey horns on "Staying Power" ;-)

'These Are The Days Of Our Lives' and 'A Human Body', though I tend to like most of Roger's compositions anyway.

Drowse, Tenement Funster, I'm In Love With My Car and These Are The Days Of Our Lives. I love his other songs, but those are the ones that stand out the most.

Innuendo is Fred`s (musically, plus part of the lyrics).

My choice would be Days Of Our Lives


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.

Drowse, if I have to pick one. I like all his songs. Not to mention his solo stuff (would be another thread) "Fun in Space" is one of my all time favs.

Although I do like 'More of that Jazz' also.

It`s because a QMS list done years ago, in which they thought the song was Rog`s just because it had much percussion (absurd argument btw). Then it got spread and soon it was "common knowledge" that the song "had been written" by Roger. It turns out that he did participate actively in the lyrics, but that was it. He comleted what Fred had written, lyrically. Musically it`s still Mercury`s.

My 2 favourites:
Drowse, because it makes you feel ... well ... uh ... drowsy

Rock it (prime jive) - just a great sing, with nice lyrics to sing/shout along

Days of Our Lives is a standout for me. Just so many emotions everytime I hear that song. :o(
Tenement Funster, Drowse & Hijack My Heart are my other faves.
