Woooo hard choice between these two great songs but i would go for "lily of the valley" for it's vocal excellence and guitar work.

Thats a hard one! I love both of them, but if I would have to choose I'll go for Nevermore, just because it makes my favorite-album better than brilliant!

Mmmmh that's hard decission indeed. I like them both but I think Lily of The Valley just features Freddie voice even better then on Nevermore.

These two aren't really high up on my favourite Queen songs but i'd say Nevermore is better.

I love them both, but at the moment, Lily Of The Valley.

Both of them are great, but I'd choose Lily Of The Valley. Because of guitar sound in it.

They're both excellent. I guess if I HAD to choose, I'd go with Lily Of The Valley. Maybe because the last verse reminds me of the US's current war with Iraq (should be said I do not support the war at all).

Nevermore, simply the best ballad ever wrote by Freddie besides Its a hard life.

I agree, LOTV simply because it was more of a story with great vocal range by Freddie, whereas NM seemed like more of a wrap-up to "March of the Black Queen" - and a magnificent wrap-up to "MOFTBQ" at that!

I prefer Lily of the Valley...I don't like Nevermore, when I'm listening to Queen2, I always skip it.

Nevermore definitely. I always thought it would have been cool if they had done an alternate take; a really heavy one with guitar.
