There are sooo many brilliant songs that dont get too much of a mention, not just in the main stream but anywhere! im just listening to 'You And I' from A Day At The Races, its such a lovely, happy song, just so so good.

What are your favorite (lesser mentioned songs?)

March of the Black Queen is to me one the very best of Queen- and an obvious precursor to Bohemian Rhapsody- but you never hear anything about it.

Spread Your Wings; not necessarily under-rated by fans but it didnt do well when it was released i dont think. IMO its a beautiful song. But especially March Of The Black Queen. Genius.

Queen have so many underrated songs...Back Chat, Scandal, Dead On Time, Dreamer's Ball, Son And Daughter (I even forgot about it for the longest time, but it's a great song. Especially the BBC version!), Millionaire Waltz, Long Away, Let Me Live, Ogre Battle, etc. They're definitely a band that's not recognized enough for their other great songs (besides We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions!).

There are soooo many i could mention, and i always think "if this was released it could have done so well!" I agree though, it's a shame some of them don't get recognised by the general public and i believe that if they DID, queen may not have such a 'camp rock' reputation... that's just in hindsight of course but to be honest, they knew what they were doing and chose the best songs which ultimately made them rich soooo good on 'em lol

"You take my breath away" No doubt! I think this is their best song, but it's really under-rated :(
