All Queen songs are jewels, many have been great hits, but some of them deserve more attention?

I vote for I'm Going Slightly Mad. I really really love this song and the video.

Also:

Mad the Swine
White Queen
Scandal
Gimme the Prize
Dragon Attack
Death on Two Legs

Hmmm...I always thought that "I was Born to Love You" (The MIH Version) should have been released as a single - brill song and Rog and Bri added so much oomph to it !

i think i saw this topic somewhere here but i may be wrong... anyways...
-bijou!! my favourite queen song... totally unknown to non-fans
-cool cat
-scandal--> the best and the least known single from the miracle cd...
-the millionaire waltz - just love it especially live versions... how come it wasn't a big worldwide hit?
-i'm in love with my car - also esp. live versions... love that one...it's that i kina like singin' drummers heh (or rather their voices)

edit: i forgot about good old-fashioned lover boy... this is awesome..

ps: and as i'm writing this, heaven for everyone starts in polish rmf fm radio... :)


the only thing to fear is running out of beer...

I've always thought that Millionaire's Waltz was Freddie's finest hour and Dreamer's Ball Brians finest hour.

There are so many songs that are underrated. I wish that people who just think Queen were We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions and maybe Another One Bites The Dust would look away from those songs and realize just how much other music they've created! Anyway, here's my list:

Save Me
Ogre Battle
Dead On Time
Who Needs You
Let Me Live
Good Company
Back Chat

There are definitely more, but that's it for me now. :)


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

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.

I would say Don't Try Suicide, it's great but people often think it's a shitty song. Fuck them! Those fucking Pink Floyd fans... (some friends of mine) they think that Pink Floyd's actually better than Queen so they feel like they're the kings of the world just because they listen to Pink Floyd... those motherfuckers..... well, anyway.
Queen Rocks!


Viva Queen es la mejor banda del planeta. Nada se le compara, aguante Queen!!!

Viva Nito Mestre que es un viejo puto.

Wow, that's really weird of you to say that, bc I agree! Although both had other songs that could be considered their "finest hour" those two would be at the top of the list.

Anyone noticed that when you think of Queen songs, you never remember 'Don't Try So Hard' ?
Or is it just me?
Don't know why...it's a great song!

The reason you may be thinking haven't we done this before-may be that on the Brian a loser post I mentioned 'Some day One Day' as being underated. However, I'm sure this subject has been 'done to death' at some other time. Having said that 'Night comes down' has such feeling and stunning harmonies.
Happy New Year toall Queenies out there-best wishes for 05 and see ya when the remaining guys tour. YEAH!!!!


Some day one day....we'll come home

I don't know why the Millionaire waltz wasn't a hit... For me, it's has one of the best piano compositions of freddie... Also, it was one of the first songs i learned to play in piano.. i like it a lot!
