Roger's stuff is pretty good so this is tough for me lol

My faves are:
Strange Frontier
I Cry For You (Love, Hope, and Confusion)
Killing Time
Foreign Sand
Nazis 1994

Nazis has interesting drums, and the lyrics, though controversial and questionable, nevertheless are passionate and truly represent Roger Taylor's style.


We can only grow the way the wind blows

On a bare and weathered shore

We can only bow to the here and now

In our elemental war

I was always partial to "My Country" and though it was probably meant as a joke, "Interlude in Constatinople" (spelling?) is kind of cool...

Happiness
Tonight
Foreign Sand
The Also Rans
London Town, till it gets to the end. Boring.

Really, most of his solo work impresses me.

Again, no particular order...

I Wanna Testify
Tonight
Happiness
My Country

And, if it counts, Working Class Hero. Fucking quality version of the track. Hats off to Rog.

And also, even though I left it out of the list, No More Fun is a pretty decent track. If not for the novelty of Rog playing pretty much everything on it.

No mention yet of my two faves, both from Fun In Space. Lets Get crazy and Magic Is Loose.

Read an interview once where Roger said that Freddie wished that he had had a chance to record Magic as a Queen track.


To cast aside the fury of the battle.

To turn my weary eyes for home.
