How can you possibly suggest 'Slightly Mad' it's brilliant and fabulous! So is the Under Pressure rah mix and Invisble Man. The only one I agree on is 'Body Language'. It's too sleazy for my liking.



It's pretty easy since it's down to personal opinions anyway... :P

On the albums it's nice to have a bit of variety, but Queen has definitely released too many singles in the past which haven't been up to their usual standards. :/

I think maybe their selections on singles are part of the reason why they were never popular in the states Hot Space +

Does anyone know where you could get 'A Winter's Tale' single? I don't mean over the internet cos I don't trust them but like in shops.


i have that
bought it in croatia
honestly don´t know how it came here, because here we don´t have that many queen cd singles
but i doubt it very that we still have it
those who bought it in croatia consider themselfs lucky

That's a stupid list... and before you get all up in arms talking about your right for free speech, I'm just exercising my freedom to say that it's my opinion that your opinion is stupid. It works both ways, really.

How can you have Best Friend on this list? What in Gods name do you like? How come IWTBF isn't on your list? That song blows!!

I can think of only 3 which never should have been released:

- Body Language (and they seem to agree, as it's the only UK hit not to appear on any of the UK compilations)

- You Don't Fool Me

- "Another One Bites The Dust" Wyclef Jean version.

This whole topic is incredibly silly...
"In hindsight, which singles Queen didn't want to release?" Well obviously the ones that didn't sell very well!!

My list isn't the 10 worst Queen singles of all time... It's a list of songs that weren't IMO the best single choices in their respective albums.

So if you have a lousy album like the Works, it just isn't possible to find better singles than RGG, IBTBF, IAHL, HTF... TGIG on the other gets beaten by just about anything the band has ever come up with.

I fail to see how The Works is a lousy album. It had 3 top 10 UK hits and 4 top 20 UK hits and topped the charts in 19 countries.

Quite simply it's because commercial success, artistic success, fan approval, and everybody's indivual opinions are entirely different matters.

Half of The Works is uninspired pop songs which will guarantee it to sell well in the early 80's, and the other half is nothing more than standard album fillers.



To get back to my earlier point about no better singles being available... These are the other songs on the Works album, none of which would have had any chance as a single:


Tear It Up - Lousy lyrics, too heavy, no chorus.

Machines - No melody.

Man On The Prowl - Wrong genre to ever chart as a single!

Keep Passing Open Windows - There is something seriously wrong with a song whose only strong point is the intro/bridge. Other than that it has nothing to be interested in.

Is This The World We Created - Can anybody honestly see this as a single?

I actually don't own the works (or AKOM) I'm really poor lol and can't invest in something I most likely won't listen to. The funny thing is I listen to nothing but LP's and can't afford to buy second hand LP's of them lol. I've heard the songs and they strike me as mediocre. Not horrible but not great. The same about AKOM, both have good songs.

Body Language was a hit in the US. And You Don't Fool Me was a hit and was played on US and UK college radio! And clubs!

Tear It Up was a radio hit in the US

Man On The Prowl is similar to CLTCL.. same style, you know? 50's influenced. CLTCL was on an album with AOBTD!
