Well it should DEFINITELY have THREE new songs. I think he should go into the studio and do seven new songs and pick the three best ones. I don't think this should be done though until two more NEW Queen l.p.s are done in the next good few years though...

Pick any three tracks from his excellent Fun in Space album and throw in the classics Man on Fire and Strange Frontier. That is a good foundation for the Roger Taylor Best Of collection.
As for the rest, Love Lies Bleeding perhaps, as well as Stand Up For Love. Happiness, Touch the Sky, and Old Friends from the Happiness? album, and Nation of Haircuts, No More Fun and London Town rounds out my personal best of.

1. I Wanna Testify
2. Future Management
3. My Country (single edit)
4. Let's Get Crazy
5. Magic Is Loose
6. Strange Frontier
7. Man On Fire
8. I Cry For You (Love, Hope And Confusion)
9. Shove It!
10. Cowboys And Indians (single edit)
11. Heaven For Everyone
12. Power To Love
13. New Dark Ages (single edit)
14. Life Changes (single edit)
15. Nazis 1994 (radio edit)
16. Happiness?
17. Foreign Sand (single edit)
18. Old Friends
19. Pressure On (single edit)
20. Surrender (radio mix)

The only non-singles on the mix are 'Magic Is Loose', 'I Cry For You' (I don't think this was a single?), and 'Old Friends', but it is a fairly representative mix of Roger's singles.

Anything that's not from the album Strange Frontier, except for the title track.

Everything from Testify to London Town. Plus some versions of Queen songs only with his voice (Sheer Heart Attack, Days Of Our Lives...)


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.

1. I Wanna Testify
2. Strange Frontier
3. Surrender (w/ Treanna Morris) <radio mix>
4. Power to Love (w/ The Cross)
5. Foreign Sand (w/ Yoshiki) <single edit>
6. Heaven For Everyone (w/ The Cross) <single version>
7. Happiness
8. Man on Fire
9. Future Management
10. Nazis <single version>
11. Pressure On <single edit>
12. Magic Is Loose
13. Liar (w/ The Cross)
14. My Country <single edit>
15. New Dark Ages (w/ The Cross) <single edit>
16. Beautiful Dreams
17. Final Destination (w/ Yoshiki)

That's 17 tracks, covers Rogers entire solo career, and includes his first single, a track each from each of the Cross albums, at least two tracks from each solo album, plus a mix of other singles and album tracks. If I could add a few more tracks, I would include:

A Nation of Haircuts
Tonight
London Town - C'mon Down
Revelations
Touch the Sky
Old Friends
Laugh or Cry
Let's Get Crazy

In choosing the tracks I did, I felt constrained by the number of tracks set by the original poster, by tracks Roger wrote himself as opposed to covers, and also by an emphasis on singles over album tracks and b-sides (even though its a 'best of' and not a 'singles collection' or 'greatest hits'). And I have never been crazy about the "Strange Frontier" and "Shove It" albums (or really any of the Cross material), but that's my personal taste. But all in all I think its a pretty good and representative track list for Roger's solo catalogue.


Blow it out your ass.
