I always wonder about how would be "a perfect Greatest Hits" CD for my own preferences... you know, we're all Queen's fans but each one in here would pick different songs...
Mine would contain:

1. The Prophet's Song
2. Princes of the Universe
3. Stone Cold Crazy
4. I Want It All
5. We Will Rock You
6. We Are the Champions
7. Tie Your Mother Down
8. One Vision
9. Sheer Heart Attack
10. I Was Born to Love You
11. Under Pressure
12. Bohemian Rhapsody
13. Killer Queen
14. Get Down, Make Love
15. Let Me Entertain You
16. Who Wants to Live Forever
17. I Want to Break Free
18. Play the Game
19. Father to Son
20. The March of The Black Queen

How about you???

Oh god, if I wanted a greatest hits comp. of my own, I'd have it pressed on vinyl, just to make it special! Even then, are too many good songs from Queen to fit in one vinyl disc!

Haha interesting thought...I dunno i tried doing that but instead of having a perfect compilation CD i ended up with two then three cd's until i had just about copied my entire Queen collection minus one or two songs lol. I mean there are just way too many songs that require selection in order to do them justice.

But certainly a few which I think would *have* to be included would be, the proverbial Queen songs perhaps but anyway: Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga, We Are the Champions, I Want to Break Free, Show Must Go On, etc.

Some personal choices of mine would be Love of My Life, It's A Hard Life, Don't Stop Me Now...but ya that's all personal preference. Just make a whole super big DVD (or one of those fancy new discs...blu-ray or whatever) or something and cram as many songs on as possible!

12. Love Of My Life (Live Killers)
13. Somebody To Love (Live On Fire At The Bowl)
14. Bohemian Rhapsody (Live Version) (I Don't Know From Which Concert It Is From, But It Is In A Medley With The Millionaire Waltz I Believe. I Cut It after The Solo, So It Is Short.)

I know what you mean, I recently made a playlist for my ipod with my favourite Queen songs and it has 44 and I missed some

Too many to mention, but they should have made each greatest hits cd a doulble disc.
