Do you think they will make a Greatest Hits 4 with songs that didn't make it the first time?

Honestly, I don't...they've got way more things to focus on than that, and they'd really be stretching for material. I think we'd see an album of great songs that weren't hits before that.

Queen Productions can make such thing. They like to release such kind of products.

GH3 was pushing it. Personally I think it was only released so QP would have something new to release for the new millennium. GH4 would be a disaster.


This can't end well.

I think 3 was quite a reach. They only had 15 studio albums, you know? If they did, maybe it would look something like:

Liar
Flick of the Wrist
Long Away
Spread Your Wings
It's Late
Dreamer's Ball
Need Your Loving Tonight
Calling All Girls
Scandal
A Winter's Tale
Too Much Love Will Kill You(Brian Solo)
Strange Frontier(Roger solo)
Happiness(Roger Solo)
Pressure On(Roger Solo)

of course, this would be more aptly titled Queen's not quite so greatest hits.


I think at this point there should be 4 types of releases:

1. New material(Q + PR, Q + ?, Brian solo, Roger solo)
2. DVD Audio albums(like tomorrow's ANATO and The Game)
3. Queen anthologies(Greg Brooks, get off your ass and finish this, PRONTO!)
4. Live releases(I like the idea of a live release every fall like Milton Keynes in '04 and Return of the Champions in '05)

A new Greatest Hits release would be just another way of them stretching their material further for an extra buck. NEW SHIT PLEASE :)

they might as well put all Queen songs on a new CD and call it a greatest hits. If you have all the CDs no one needs a greatest hits CD, just listen to all the songs.

From a posting to another list years ago..do you think they'd release, what in short hand, would be 'GHIV'????

A smarter move would have been to include another disc with the 'Platinum Collection', so that all the 'hits' would have been in one package for the newbie shopper.

Using the basic criteria of 1,2,and 3, the track list could have been:

Flick of the Wrist (double A side w/KQ)
Death on Two Legs (A side of the EP)
Tie Your Mother Down
Spread Your Wings
Body Language
Love Kills
I Was Born To Love You (original)
Time
Man On The Prowl (A side w/TGIC)
Scandal
A Winter's Tale
Back To The Light
Too Much Love Will Kill You (Brian)
These Are The Days Of Our Lives (w/ Lisa Stansfield)

that's 14

Sticking with the Top 40 and '17 track' formula, the remainder could have been chosen from 'Back Chat' WWRY w/5ive (no thanks), 'Surrender', or 'Man On Fire' (just because it's Roger's best), and maybe the soundtrack versions of 'AKOM' and 'The Hero'.

There were enough quality, and qualified songs, for a superb GH 3. They just chose not to do so, and ruined a chance for a superb coda.
