OK, we we're all dissapointed with the track listing of Greatest Hits III, while some others thought that a third hits album wasn't even necessary.

If you could have picked 17 tracks for this collection, what would you have chosen? Only Queen songs, no collaborations or solo tracks.

Include, non-hit, o non-singles if you wish...

1. Keep Yourself Alive
2. White Queen
3. In The Lap Of The Gods (Revisited)
4. Love Of My Life
5. Tie Your Mother Down
6. It's Late
7. Jealousy
8. Sail Away Sweet Sister
9. Las Palabras De Amor
10. Is This The World We Created
11. Thank God It's Christmas
12. Princes Of The Universe
13. Scandal
14. These Are The Days Of Our Lives
15. A Winter's Tale
16. You Don't Fool Me
17. No One But You

5. Tie Your Mother Down
*Appeared in GH1

1. Keep Yourself Alive
2. White Queen
3. In The Lap Of The Gods (Revisited)
7. Jealousy
8. Sail Away Sweet Sister
10. Is This The World We Created
* You can enjoy them. But to be in a GH album, they should be hits at first. And these appeared at no ranking.

* I think it was an open topic about this, just a few days ago.

Why'd they include 'Princes Of The Universe' and 'The Show Must Go On' with Elton John then?

Good thing they released it two years before they should have, then.

<s> Too many to choose...much more time, it'll take...
I hope it will contain rare songs which have never been released or have rarely been heard as many as posiible.

The collaborations with Elton John, Wyclef Jean, and the mix of Under Pressure with Bowie were certainly not hits.

But they were included anyways.

Oh! I was mistaken about the way I wtote in my old post.
The tracks for "GHIII" if we could have picked for...OK, well, I wish we had some bonus tracks including the numbers such as "See What A Fool I've Been", "Hangman", and a few, if any...till the middle '70s, they sometimes played some numbers tasting a sort of bluesy songs (though Hangman has different beat) and they were the ones which have never/rarely been released.
Freddie showed the special different skills in them.
