"Resurrection" just rocks, it's my all time favourite solo song. When it comes to ballads, I'd go for "Unassuming" from John Deacon's unreleased "Man In The Shadows" album.


I do not want any google ads here.

I like most of the bands solo work but the best one of them all for me is Barcelona, because its one of the few songs, that can make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

He only made about 5 solo-songs. I'm not going to choose the 'best ones' because there's not enough source for comparison.


One of my favourite solo songs is John's extended remix of "I Cry for You (Love, Hope and Confusion)".

Freddie - All of Mr Bad Guy album, How Can I Go On, Barcelona
Brian - All of BttL, re-recording mix of Driven by You(buries the original UK BttL version as Cozy played drums on the US mix). The title cut to Another World, Business and China Belle
Roger - Fun in Space is the best album, I also liked Man on Fire, Pressure On and his version of Working Class Hero

Freddie : The Golden Boy, Barcelona, How Can I Go On, Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow, In My Defence, I Can Hear Music, Goin' Back

Brian : Back To The Light, Let Your Heart Rule Your Head, Just One Life, Rollin' Over, Business, All The Way From Memphis, On My Way Up, Dream Of Thee, My Boy, Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour?

Roger : I Wanna Testify, No Violins, Magic Is Loose, My Country, Fun In Space, Strange Frontier, Man On Fire, Killing Time, Young Love, I Cry For You, Touch The Sky, Revelations, Freedom Train, Old Friends

The Cross : Power To Love, Love Lies Bleeding, New Dark Ages

John : good call on Unassuming, Barbara, though Birdman's Blues has the best kazoo-Jews harp-harmonica duel I've ever heard, and Fist Through A Window has a pretty gnarly bass guitar solo. Pretty hard to choose...
