im just wondering why tie your mother down wasnt on queens greatest hits cd. in a queen magazine i have it was voted the 10th best queen song and i think it should be better. I was a bit dissapointed by it. it could have replaced many of the songs on their. but overall the cd is great and i was just wondering if u agree with me.


- those days are all gone now but one thing is true, when i look and i find i still love you.

The band's rule was all GH material had to be Top 30 hits and TYMD wasn't a big enough chart success.

Lack of space was one of the reasons too. Spread Your Wings wasn't neither.

Q: "why was'nt tie your mother down on GH"

But on other hand:

Las Palabras De Amor reached #17, Slightly Mad and The Miracle were in Top-30 only, but...

The Show Must Go On was released two weeks before GHII and no-one could say if it's gonna be a huge hit (and it spent only two weeks in Top-20), but it's on GHII

plus the show must go on is freddies farewell it had2 be on gh2

i would have put tymd on gh3 along with spread your wings.

however a more important question is why wasnt a winters tale on gh3? its the last song freddie wrote and it got to number 6 higher than
aobtd,fbg/br, ymbf, dsmn, sm, nih, goflb, ptg,flash, ssor, breakthru,wwtlf,headlong, the miracle, igsm, tim, htf, fwbf,tsmgo, ov, tmlwky,ydfm, lpda, lml,and noby all of which are on the gh albums

GH2 it's closer to what I said before. It is more like a bunch of released singles than Top 10/20/30 hits.


EVERYTHING on GH I&II was a greatest hit. Queen were the first band ever to release 2 genuine GH albums with seperate material (that's what I read anyways)

The Beatles released the double red and double blue albums in 1973. I think those were all singles, and since it's the Beatles, they were all hits.

Dear friend, TYMD and SYW are on Greatest Hits I!!!!!!!!!

The very first issue of the GH1 is different from country to country!!!!!

If I remember well TYMD and SYW are in the German one instead of SSOR!!!!

In South America there's LOML instead SSOR and so on, in North America there's different tracks to the Europe GH1!!!!




Sorry for my english! :(

Can any Queen fans in the know tell me more about the differing releases of Greatest Hits from country to country. Tracklistings, chart positions etc.

Cheers
Steve

Well remember, Greatest Hits had "Under Pressure" which didn't chart yet. Most Greatest Hits albums have a new single on them. Also, I'm Going Slightly Mad was a #1 hit in Hong Kong.

Hmm, interesting. I checked out a Beatles discography, and you're right, many of the tracks weren't singles. Then it may indeed be true that Queen was the first band to release two unique GH albums. Can anyone state this for certain?

Listen, you impolite fuckhead. Queen was an English band, Queen's first releases were English, thus, England is used as a standard. If you can't cope with that, you can at least be more polite. If you can't, go play Russian Roulette...by yourself.


Listen you overgrown virgin, there's no need to leave people out. And as for the first year, with the single, Keep Yourself Alive, it was a bit more popular in the USA than the UK.

And sadly, girl, the poster of this topic, is North American. So back off cunt stain. His was more North American than European.

You're the second one who thinks that I'm from England... Perhaps my English is good enough for a new trip to Britain!

Man- many ppl in Britain can't speak their own language- you'd do really fine. Many of them when they hear 3rd conditional, they think you made a mistake... Or maybe it's just the place I work, I dunno :)
And believe me- your English is really good.
