I always thought that Fat Bottomed Girls sucked live, but now after seeing Queen on Fire, I love it.

Simple, AOBTD from the WORKS tour. Utter rubbish!
Some might say an embarrassment!

i never liked the "leave the stage" aspect of the operatic section of Bo-Rhap.
always preferred the (upto 79) approach of "stick it in a medley - that way you get the bits of the song they could do live - interspersed with other interesting songs ...rather than a blank stage with a few lights

gotta agree with mercuryarts. Anbtd in the Works tour is really bad. I never really liked the syntsolos in the 84 tour either. over all many songs were not in the top shape in the Works tour.

From what I have heard, I have to say Tear It Up from the Magic tour. That's the only song that comes to mind.

Actually, the band did the leaving the stage on Bo Rhap as far back as the Day at the Races tour. I liked that they did that because the opera section was hard to recreate live! Queen's songs were way better live than studio at times!

Synth drums on AOBTD on The Works tour was eh. I preferred the acoustic drum versions from 1980-82 and The Magic Tour.

BoRhap with the middle part from the tape (I love medleys!!!)
Tear It Up (apart from Budapest- I really like his voice there)
Most of the WORKS TOUR (not songs- just the crappy sound and fuckin' awful drums...!!!)
We Are The Champions (Fred sang it really well only @ Live Aid)
Body Language (utter crap- the live version doesn't change my view)

Get Down Make Love (don't like it, the live version doesn't change it either). Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy (ditto).

Perhaps the only Queen song that makes me cringe.

On The Works tour, the medley of songs they did from 'Man in the Shadow' never worked for me.

I don't love how they sped up Back Chat. Something about it just didn't sound right, although the guitar solo was great.

I didn't like the way the taped 'Machines' merged with 'Tear It Up' in 1984. I liked they way it merged into 'Tie Your Mother Down' in 1985 though.

Wrong. I think Back Chat is better live. It gives the song something it can't have in the studio. Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy is good live and so is Tear It Up. But The Works Tour was dire. They got hooked on synths. I hated when the added them into Champions just before chorus and the drums, AWFUL!

I honestly have to say "sheer heart attack". its sounds too sloppy and too fast live. i love the studio version alot better on "news of the world".

Not necessarily wrong, just a different opinion. Like how I personally love Who Wants To Live Forever live, but Alex Solan doesn't. I quite like Back Chat in the studio anyway.
