From his solo career there are too many to pick just one. Several in there I like more than any Queen song: Another World, Business, China Belle, Wilderness, Let Your Heart, Resurrection, Driven By You, Love Token, Last Horizon. I`d say all of them except for The Dark, Space and Guv`nor (I like them but a little less) and I`m Scared (which I find utterly dull).

Inside the band, all my ten favourite Queen songs are Brian`s: All Dead, Who Wants To Live Forever, `39, Dreamer`s Ball, Keep Yourself Alive, Good Company, Sail Away Sweet Sister, Save Me, Brighton Rock, Teo Toriatte.


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.

Dunno really, I like most of Brian's songs. Can't stand Teo Torriate... Thats the only one that springs to mind.

1. Long Away
2. Who Wants To Live Forever
3. Hammer To Fall
4. Too Much Love Will Kill You
5. It's Late
6. Save Me
7. All Dead, All Dead
8. I Want It All
9. Scandal
10. Now I'm Here


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.
