Hammer To Fall and Tie Your Mother Down are classics, but I also love Stone Cold Crazy.

Actually, It's late sate a bit like Hammer to Fall only played slower... So, I gotta go with both...

Tie Your mother down and Now I'm here are two riffs I want to play if I ever get the chance to learn the guitar...

Hey Scirocco, glad you mentioned the similarity between HtF and IL. Just listen to the slow version from the Queen's day show and the LA gig.
Very similar! Very cool!

Personally, I like Cyborg and, for Queen, Ogre Battle (even though Freddie wrote it).

"I Want It All"--1991 remaster
"Tie Your Mother Down"
"Keep Yourself Alive"
"I Go Crazy"
"Hammer To Fall"

Plus many more, but these are the ones that I thought of right away.
