Everybody truly hates this song, but to me it isn't crappy at all. Ok, a little maybe. But it's much cooler than cool cat for example.

Everybody truly hates 'My Baby Does Me' too though there are 'Party' and 'Khashoggi's Ship' on The Miracle album...

I rather like Jesus - and Cool Cat for that matter! ;-)

Jesus is a very good song, some nice harmonics. I want to hear the live version, so anybody wants to share Marquee 1972? John Stuart? :P

That's right. And that's why I don't like such threads like 'the worst Queen song', 'the most crap Queen album', 'Hot Space sucks' etc. etc. etc.

I dislike the album version
I love the De Lane Lea one.
An example of how production can destroy the song...

I actually like Jesus . . . it's not one of my favourites, but I enjoy listening to it. Different people have different tastes, that's all, and I think that with a song like Jesus it's looked down upon a lot simply because we are all well aware that Queen can make much better songs than that.

To be honest,I really like 'Jesus'.I like the music but of course we don't have the same taste,do we?
Some people love it and some other people hate it!!!

My Baby Does Me is actually a great track from the Miracle (a great album) sure...lyrically it is very simple but Brian's guitar is stunning - it has so much feel....Jesus is an okay track too....much better than some others...not a stand out but neat...like the solo at the end

I pretty much dig (and will listen to) about 120 Queen songs. The rest I don't really bother with, but listen to sometimes.

That's a pretty good ratio of good : not-so-good songs.
The one I never ever listen to is Staying Power - for that, I just pop in the live version from Milton Keyes.

I like all Queen songs. So often we read people on this board who write: "I hate My baby does me, I hate Jesus, I hate the falsetto thing in Cool Cat...." etc etc. Personally in my case, I like all Queen songs, from the first album to the last one. The only song I might skip sometimes is Sweet Lady from ANATO, but I don't hate it. Besides that, I never skip any Queen songs.


yes it was plain to see, yes it was meant to be...
