why couldn't it be a greatest hits?

it has nothing but hits (except for disc 4)


A song has to be released as a single to be a hit, right? Many of your selected songs were not released as singles :(

Let me correct myself: Some of the greatest hits you've listed were not released as singles. ;)
Nice idea though.

What's the point of buying a compilation anyway? Just get all the albums they were on originally then you get those songs and more.(The obvious exception of course being the smile songs and stuff where there may not be original albums

What we really need is another compilation, yes...
Fuck the live DVDs, who cares about Box Sets- let's make 10CD compilation of the best of the rest- yes! And than Brian May=- "Ballads", Roger Taylor "Best Of..."... I "Dancing Queen"- the best Queen songs for the discoteque... Yeah, bring it on- more crappy compilations!!!

Love Of My Life
Tie Your Mother Down
Spread Your Wings
Jealousy
White Queen
Back Chat
Staying Power
Calling All Girls
Man On The Prowl
Need Your Loving Tonight
Mad The Swine
See What A Fool I’ve Been
A Human Body
Soul Brother
I Go Crazy
Blurred Vision
A Dozen Red Roses For My Darling
Forever
Dog With A Bone
Chinese Torture
Hang On In There
Stealin’
Hijack My Heart
Lost Opportunity
Rock In Rio Blues
Made in Heaven (Freddie)
Living On My Own (Freddie)
Love Me Like There’s No Tomorrow (Freddie)
The Golden Boy (Freddie)
How Can I Go On (Freddie)
Future Management (Roger)
Strange Frontier (Roger)
Man On Fire (Roger)
Shove It (Roger)
Cowboys And Indians (Roger)
Heaven For Everyone (Roger)
Power To Love (Roger)
Happiness (Roger)

Your list is basically the same Greatest Hits collections with a lot of filler.

Tie Your Mother Down reached #17 as double a-side with No-One But You in 1997, White Queen was part of the ep with good old fashioned lover boy etc.

It would be really great but not as Greatest Hits,maybe sth else.


It's a long hard struggle

But you can always depend on me

And if you're ever in trouble

You know where I will be
