Let me ask this, of all of Queen's huge hits and popular songs, which song or songs were either fan favorites, or charted hits..... but didn't do a damn thing for you?

You don't fool me.

It's a nice song, but I do not understand why it became a hit at all. For me that's the weakest single of all. But on the other hand, I'm not working for a record company (good for them...).

"It's a Hard Life"

I like the song, but I certainly don't find it to be hit worthy.

"Body Language"

I don't HATE it, but I don't love it, and it was definately the worst song on Hate Space. Definately no hit worthy.

Every one always says they really like this song plus it was no.1 but I really don't see what all the fuss is about, I just don't like it ....

Innuendo

Tie Your Mother Down and Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy. Both at least minor hits, both major fan favorites. I can't stand either of them except at parties.

Tie Your Mother Down was never a single release.

We Will Rock You. Then again, I have heard it at least five thousand times, so maybe that's influencing my decision. I mean, it's a good enough song, and I can see why it was a hit, but it's just weak compared to so much of their other material.


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

Yeah, we've all heard the WWRY/WATC duo about eight quadrillion times, two or three times at every sporting event we've ever viewed, once at every social event, at least once a day on the oldies stations, and sometimes in our own players. I'm all for getting everyone to listen to Queen, but enough is enough.

Yes, it is definately disconcerting when Body Language becomes a fairly strong American hit when brilliant songs like It's Late and Keep Yourself Alive made no dent at all.

Ok, I was wrong. But with that chart positions I wouldn't call it a hit single...

Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy. Never liked it - too camp.

Body Language, but only after I figured out it has nothing to do with flatulence.

'Who Wants To Live Forever'. Beautiful, gorgeous song, probably one of the best on A Kind Of Magic, but far too weighty for a single release.
