Just so we are clear...
Innuendo is beyond Roger's depth as a songwriter..Innuendo is very complex, and simply cannot be Roger's song..... really Freddie is the only person in the band who could have wrote it.

Roger may have gave Freddie some assistance with the lyrics, but I will bet that Innuendo is 90% Freddie's song.

I like, from Roger:

Drowse
I'm in love with my car
Action this day
Coming soon
These are the Days of our Lives
Breakthru

Innuendo? Again? Poor Sebastian... He writes about Innuendo any given week, but people still think that Roger wrote it.

I'm In Love With My Car
Tenement Funster
Drowse
A Human's Body
Hijack My Heart
Radio GaGa...

Well, all of them except Coming Soon and some solo tracks.

These Are The Days Of Our Lives is definitely top for me. Drowse, Calling All Girls and I'm In Love With My Car are good, too.

no it wasn't ALL of queen

it was Roger's song - freddie changed a few lyrics
...and the writing credits are ALL - but it was Roger's song

just like on later albums they credit song-writing to QUEEN - but we know which songs were written by whom

Best Queen track is I'm In Love With My Car.

Solo, I love I Go Crazy and Magic Is Loose from Fun In Space.


To cast aside the fury of the battle.

To turn my weary eyes for home.
