I'm new to the zone, but having a great time reading everyone's posts. Here's a topic to throw out...What, in your opinion, are your top three most underrated Queen songs. Mine are 3)"Was it all worth it" from The Miracle.
2)"Tenament Funster" from Sheer Heart Attack
1)"March of the Black Queen" from Queen 2.
Hell, I think the entire Queen 2 album should be required listening for every kid entering highschool. Maybe that would help today's youth veer away from all of the pre-fab pop crap out there!!!

Without really thinking about it I'd say Las Palabras De Amor, Long Away, You And I..

Many more that I think could have been hits, or bigger hits. In some cases I understand though.. a song like '39 is superb, but as a single it would seem strange to me. So many Queen songs are fantastic but better suited among the albums they inhabit, rather than as stand-alone tracks.

I also think that Drowse is a very underrated song, probably it's often overlooked because it has Roger on vocals. IMO it's one of the best songs he ever wrote and what a shame they didn't play it on this year's tour.

Spread Your Wings is painfully under rated.
Scandal, I'm Going Slighly Mad, Heaven for Everyone (Got to #2 here in the UK but i remember some people in this board saying it was 'nothing special'.)

The Miracle as well but i'm not too keen on the 'heavy' part near the end.

In The Lap Of The Gods and the instrumental ones (Procession, The Kiss, Wedding March)


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Few of Flash Gordon tracks (like ones named above by Sebastian). Non-single tracks from AKOM and The Miracle.

Fight from the inside.

I hope someday it will feature in a Quentin Tarantino's movie...or something in the same line..
