We love Queen, duh.
But is there any Queen song(s) that are popular, charted well, or just liked among fans that YOU really have never cared for??

My Fairy King
Now I'm Here
We Are the Champions
Save Me
Scandal
Innuendo
The Show Must Go On

Rip Van Winkle-
Thanks for sharing, and I appreciate the opinion...
but are you trying to kill me??

We are the Champions and The Show must Go on are just ok???

These are Queen defining songs to me.

To me, not liking these songs, and yet still being a Queen fan are not likely to me.

Those two songs are ok, but I would much rather listen to most other less popular songs like Action This Day, Who Needs You, Rain Must Fall, Good Company and Don't Try Suicide. Shall I call a medic?

Friends Will Be Friends(lameass lyrics, worst Queen song ever!)

Jesus(Too religious in nature for me)

Sleeping on the Sidewalk(not original sounding)

Body Language(goofy song to me)

Don't Try Suicide(cheeseball lyrics but what a guitar solo)

Those songs aren't even that bad though. The only Queen related songs that truly suck ass are the Bruce Springsteen song Roger Taylor covers off of Strange Frontier and that horrid No Turning Back song John Deacon did.

Well, I've always despised You Don't Fool Me but most people think I'm crazy when I tell them I'm not a big fan of These are the Days of Our Lives. I don't particularly dislike but I don't particularly like it either.

the one popular Queen song that I never got into was Radio Ga Ga, actually.....I dont really dislike it, but it just does nothing for me....

I used to think much the same about Under Pressure, but now thats one of my favorites, though....

The Loser In The End > Although I like most Taylor compositions I just can't stand this one.

She Makes Me > Makes me think of Oasis.

Good Company > It's not good and between spoils the best part of ANATO (TPS, LOML and BH).

Rain Must Fall > Misfire was ok, but this song just sucks.

Delilah > That's obvious.

Other songs that I think are weaker than the rest: Jesus, Fight From The Inside, Dancer, Coming Soon and Friends Will Be Friends.

I believe the idea of this topic is to name popular songs that one only likes a little or worse.

For example, I have a mild dislike for the following:

Life is Real
All God's People
One Year of Love
My Life Has Been Saved
Scandal

With the exception of Scandal, I do like the songs in my previous post, but I do not think they are great. Ironically, I do like the 12" version of Scandal.

"Bicycle Race" doesnt get a regular airing in my house. As for album tracks theres "Keep Passing Open Windows" or most of the Miracle album I dont bother with either

Ride the Wild Wind.

I don't know i just think it's a pretty average song.

It's a beautiful day, both versions.

I don't like them.
