Just wondering about this. I know everyone has different opinions about the best and worst songs of each studio album. Just wanted to get some feedback. All of these are my opinion.

Queen: Best Song - Liar or Great King Rat, it's a toss-up; Worst Song - Jesus (although I like all the songs on this album)

Queen II: Best Song - The March Of The Black Queen; Worst Song - See What A Fool I've Been (Hollywood Records version) or Funny How Love Is (that song is just way too repetitive)

Sheer Heart Attack: Best Song - Flick Of The Wrist or Bring Back That Leroy Brown (another toss-up) Worst Song - She Makes Me

A Night At The Opera: Best Song - Love Of My Life (Sorry Bo. Rhap. fans); Worst Song - Good Company

A Day At The Races: Best Song - Teo Torriatte; Worst Song - Drowse (Roger's Best I think is The Loser In The End or I'm In Love With My Car)

News Of The World: Best Song - Spread Your Wings (WWRY or WATC would be an obvious choice also); Worst Song - Fight From The Inside (again not Roger's best)

Jazz: Best Song - Jealousy or Bicycle Race; Worst Song - Mustapha (hands down)

The Game: Best Song - Crazy Little Thing Called Love (Save Me is a close second) Worst Song - Don't Try Suicide

Flash Gordon: Best Song - The Hero; Worst Song - everyone else except for Flash

Hot Space: Best Song - Las Palabras de Amor; Worst Song - Dancer

The Works: Best Song - It's A Hard Life; Worst Song - Can't really think of one. Great Album!

A Kind Of Magic: Best Song - Princes Of The Universe; Worst Song - I'm sorry but I have to say it........A Kind Of Magic is the worst Queen single ever. Sorry. Don't Lose Your Head is a close runner-up for worst song

The Miracle: Best Song - Scandal or I Want It All; Worst Song - My Baby Does Me

Innuendo: Best Song - Innuendo or These Are The Days of Our Lives (for sentimental reasons); Worst Song - Delilah

Made In Heaven: Best Song - Mother Love (Too Much Love Will Kill You may actually beat that one out but we'll stick with Mother Love); Worst Song - You Don't Fool Me (Ok, I take it back: A Kind Of Magic isn't the worst single ever.

Let me know what you think. Please be nice, I know everyone's opinions are different


How can I go on from day to day? Who can make me strong in every way?

I can't believe I've just read that Bring Back That Leroy Brown is better than Killer Queen!

I know it's a personal choice, but for fuck's sake!

First I name my favourite then my least. I exclude my top two favourites which are `39 and Dreamer`s Ball, to give opportunity to runner-ups in their respective albums:

I - Keep Yourself Alive - Son & Daughter
II - White Queen - Loser In The End
SHa - Stone Cold Crazy - She Makes Me
ANATO - Good Company - Sweet Lady
ADATR - Teo Toriatte - White Man
NOTW - All Dead - Get Down Make Love
Jazz - Don`t Stop Me - Fun It
Game - Sail Away Sweet Sister - Dragon Attack
Flash Gordon - Football Fight - Battle Theme
Hot Space - Put Out The Fire - Body Language
The Works - Machines - Radio Ga Ga
A Kind Of Magic - WWTLF - PISCTP
The Miracle - I Want It All - My Baby Does Me
Innuendo - Days Of Our Lives - Delilah
Made In Heaven - IWTLY - HFE


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.

Queen-Best song: Liar-Worst song: Jesus

Queen II- Best: White Queen (just) Worst: Funny How Love Is

SHA-Best: Bring Back That Leroy Brown, Worst: She Makes Me

ANATO-Best: Bo Rhap, but it's a damn close call. Worst-Sweet Lady, and that one isn't.

ADATR-Best: Long Away, Worst: White Man

NOTW-Best:It's Late, Worst: Fight From The Inside

Jazz-Best: Leaving Home (?) or Dreamer's Ball, Worst: More of that Jazz

The Game-Best: Save Me, Worst: Rock It or Coming Soon

Hot Space- Best: Staying Power and Cool Cat, Worst: The rest. But Calling All Girls is the worst of the bad.

The Works-Best: Open Windows, Worst: Hammer To Fall-great song but so empty on that album, it's got no soul or power.

Magic-Best: A Kind of Magic, Worst: Don't Lose Your Head

Miracle-Best: Breakthru, Worst: My baby does me.

Innuendo-Best: Innuendo/TSMGO, Worst: Wild Wind, All God's People, Delilah.

MIH-Best: The two Freddie tracks, Worst: Life Has Been Saved. It's ok, but the rest of the album's better.

GHIII-bad idea all round!

All round, my personal favourite is Leroy Brown, and my personal least favourite is Calling All Girls.

I think some of you younger fans are on crack!!! LOL J/K Well not really. :)

Flash: The Hero and Title Track. the remainder is OK.

Hot Space: Back Chat & LIR. Can't pick a least favorite.

Miracle: WIAWI, least favorite is Breakthru.

Innuendo: TSMGO, worst is Deliah

how could you ever think Mustapha is bad? great combination of rock and arabian music it's a breakthru in melting music styles together.


It's strange but I agree with you. Mustapha is much better than some other tracks from Jazz, but it's only my opinion.

Jesus, White Man, My Baby Does Me are worst tracks?! Is My Baby Does Me more worst than Party? Seven Seas Of Rhye (short piano version) is better than Jesus? Well... I'm shocked!

I don't want to name all tracks which are not my fave ones, because it depends on my mood.

I don't like some early Brian tracks which he sung himself like She Makes Me, Some Day One Day, Good Company, Leavin' Home Ain't Easy. And Man On The Prowl is not my fave from The Works. Coming Soon either.

Funny thing is that I can't name least favorite track from ADATR (Innuendo and NATO are great albums, but there are some weak songs even)!
