If you had to pick your top five favorite and least favorite songs from each studio album (except Flash Gordon) what would they be? Not Necessarily the worst songs, just the ones you like and don't like. Some albums have more than five songs that you may like but just pick the most favorites. Here's mine:

5 Most - Liar, Great King Rat, My Fairy King, The Night Comes Down, Keep Yourself Alive

5 Least - Doing Alright, Jesus, Mad The Swine, Modern Times Rock And Roll, Seven Seas Of Rhye (Instrumental)

Queen II
5 Most - The March Of The Black Queen, Seven Seas Of Rhye, The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke, Nevermore, White Queen (As It Began)

5 Least - Funny How Love Is, Ogre Battle, Some Day One Day, The Loser In The End, Father To Son

Sheer Heart Attack
5 Most - Killer Queen, Bring Back That Leroy Brown, In The Lap Of The Gods...Revisited, Flick Of The Wrist, Lilly Of The Valley

5 Most - Bohemian Rhapsody, Love Of My Life, You're My Best Friend, I'm In Love With My Car, Death On Two Legs

5 Least - Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon, Good Company, Sweet Lady, Seaside Rendezvous, God Save The Queen. ( I'd put Prophet's Song and '39 in most favorite if I could)

A Day At The Races
5 Most - Teo Torriatte, Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy, Somebody To Love, You Take My Breath Away, Tie Your Mother Down

5 Least - White Man, Drowse, The Millionaire Waltz, You And I, Long Away (this one was tough as I like most of the songs on this album)

News Of The World
5 Most - We Will Rock You, It's Late, My Melancholy Blues, We Are The Champions, All Dead All Dead

5 Least - Fight From The Inside, Sheer Heart Attack, Get Down Make Love, Who Needs You, Sleeping On The Sidewalk

5 Most - Don't Stop Me Now, Jealousy, Fat Bottomed Girls, Bicycle Race, Let Me Entertain You

5 Least - Mustapha, If You Can't Beat Them, Fun It, Leaving Home Ain't Easy, More Of That Jazz

The Game
5 Most - Save Me, Play The Game, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Sail Away Sweet Sister, Dragon Attack

5 Least - Coming Soon, Rock It (Prime Jive), Another One Bites The Dust, Need Your Lovin' Tonight, Don't Try Suicide

Hot Space
5 Most - Las Palabras De Amor, Life Is Real (Song For Lennon), Staying Power, Under Pressure, Cool Cat

5 Least - Dancer, Body Language, Action This Day, Calling All Girls, Back Chat

The Works
5 Best - Radio Ga Ga, It's A Hard Life, Keep Passing The Open Windows, Is This The World We Created, I Want To Break Free

5 Least - Tear It Up, Hammer To Fall, Machines (or 'Back To Humans'), Man On The Prowl, I Go Crazy (I like every song on this album though)

A Kind Of Magic
5 Best - One Vision, Who Wants To Live Forever, Princes Of The Universe, Friends Will Be Friends, Pain Is So Close To Pleasure

5 Least - Don't Lose Your Head, Gimme The Prize, One Year Of Love, A Kind Of Magic, Forever

The Miracle
5 Best - Scandal, I Want It All, The Miracle, Breakthru, Was It All Worth It

5 Least - My Baby Does Me, Hang On In There, Party, Chinese Torture, Rain Must Fall

5 Best - Innuendo, I'm Going Slightly Mad, These Are The Days Of Our Lives, The Show Must Go On, Don't Try So Hard

5 Least - All Gods People, Delilah, The Hitman, Bijou, Ride The Wild Wind

Made In Heaven
5 Best - Too Much Love Will Kill You, Heaven For Everyone, Mother Love, Let Me Live, It's A Beautiful Day

5 Least - You Don't Fool Me, It's A Beautiful Day (Reprise), I Was Born To Love You, My Life Has Been Saved, A Winter's Tale

Some of those were hard because I had to put songs I like in the least favorite pile.

How can I go on from day to day? Who can make me strong in every way?

Why not go for top 20 from each album, given that you had to cheat to even get this far?
