Here is my top 3

1. You and I
2. Need your lovin tonight
3. Spread your wings.

Totally agree with "You and I" - wonderful track !
I also always liked PISCTP, even though that particular Song seems to be quite unpopular amongst Queen-Fans...
My No. 3 would be Spread your wings as well.

So even though Another One Bites The Dust was Queen's biggest ever hit, that cant get in this top 3?? Or is it personal prefference?



I do like You and I though.

Another One Bites The Dust is one of my top John compositions. It's not as deep or intense as some of his other songs, but it's just so catchy. Then there's You're My Best Friend, Spread Your Wings, You And I, Who Needs You, etc. Like Brian said, John didn't write many songs, but they definitely counted!


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

Another One bites the dust is good, but I don't think that it is on my top 3. Maybe it is because it isn't so changing in the harmony. It is a pity that they never played "You and I" live.


John 3:16.....

I`ve always felt that when I know John wrote a song, that`s a kind of quality stamp. I like all the songs he wrote except for the ones he did with Freddie


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.

Don't know if I could put them into order but, for a top 3:

You're My Best Friend
Need Your Loving Tonight
Spread Your Wings

Although if he wrote Don't Try So Hard (I think I read that somewhere) those three would be under pressure :))

My top favorites of John are Spread Your Wings, Who Needs You, and I Want To Break Free. I think That Mr Fred is right, he is underestimated and that he should be given more credit. It's not like he is the bad seed of the band or anythinf, so why do people look down on him?


I am not obsessed, I just have a one-track mind. (Obessed people go to counceling.)

1. Who Needs You

2. You And I

3. Misfire

Is there a chance that we can have vote about this and get results?



I hope John could read all these words we're writing here...






Interview?... oh, don't be ridiculous!

I wrote in earlier that my top favorites were Spread Your Wings, Who Needs You, and I Want To Break Free, but i am beginning to have second thoughts because i also like Your My Best Friend and i like Another one Bites The Dust......... well, i guess you could say i like just about all of his songs.
