It is just me, or is it REALLY hard to dislike any song be John Deacon? I love EVERY ONE of them! What are some of your favourites?

Spread Your Wings is my ultimate fav. Deaky song.
He just has this beautiful way with words.. and honestly.. i am just completely in love with it.
And judging by some songs, i'd say he was a romantic kinda guy. How sweet.. but ALL those songs can't be about his wife can they? Like all the love songs. I know "You're my best friend" was but what about the 7 days song or "you and i"?? .. maybe he had a mystery lover tucked away somewhere in that little past of his.
how gorgeous.

I on the other hand prefer Roger to John- nothing that John wrote matches THESE ARE THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES or BREAKTHRU... Apart from Spread Your Wings- that's a real masterpiece!!! And maybe YOU AND I- that's a very overlooked song. I agree- his songs are likable, but... nothing special, really... Just my opinion...
PS
Well- let's not forget AOBTD- not my fav but it bloody worked!!!

Another One Bites The Dust and I Want To Break Free would fave to be the best ones by miles closely followed by You're My Best Friend though.

Totally agree, as for Who Needs You - ouch, never liked it. As much as I love our John, Who Needs You was a bad song IMHO.

I like John's songs, but the lyrics are almost always corny, awkward and bland, like the kind of thing you get when you try songwriting for the first time.

I don't think there is a song that John wrote that I dont like. I mean they're all just so fresh, so real, so beautiful - Misfire, You're my best friend, You and I, Spread your wings, Who needs you, If you can't beat them, In only seven days, Need your loving tonight, Another one bites the dust, Back Chat, I want to break free, One year of love, etc etc...... If I had to pick only a few to call my favorites, i guess it would be Spread your wings (like a lot of people here - i think this is a shining song, like a diamond), In only 7 days, maybe Misfire... I also think Need your lovin tonight, AOBTD and I want to break free are so good too...


yes it was plain to see, yes it was meant to be...

I quite like Back Chat. I think its a really up beat song. especially when sung live at the bowl. That and spread your wings.

I prefer Fight From the Inside to Breakthru, for some reason. In fact, I prefer Modern Times Rock n' Roll to Breakthru...

7Innuendo-

You lost me on that one.
I find Breakthru 1000x times superior to Modern Times Rock and Roll.

With just a few exceptions, there is one thing to call a song a Queen album where Freddie doesn't sing: ALBUM FILLER.

That's the biggest problem I have with the News Of The World Album......if you are in a band with Freddie Mercury....why don't we just go ahead and let him sing???

There are way too many songs on News Of The World that aren't Freddie sung.
