Hi folks,

First message so please be polite. I own all the Studio Queen albumns and I have been asked by a cousin to burn a mix CD for him. the criteria is to have at least one track from each of the albums (Even Flash Gordon OST)but they can't be the most famous ones. Therefore no Bohemian Rhapsody, in fact I am going to stay clear of anything on any of the Greatest Hits albumns released in the UK.

What would be the most popular choices and if you are being fancy or even a bit bored what order would you have them in. My first attempt is thus:

1. Tie Your Mother Down 2. Spread Your Wings, 3. Man on the Prowl. 4. Liar. 5. Mother Love 6. 39 7 Stone Cold Crazy 8. Dancer???? 9. Ogre Battle 10. Sail Away Sweet Sister 11.All God's People 12.Let Me Entertain You 13. Princes of the Universe 14. The Hero 15.Was it All Worth It.

cheers

Yeah I'd agree with all of them. Especially the last one!


Yes, I agree - very nice picks, although Stone Cold Crazy strays a bit close to famous, since is was on Classic Queen and featured in Encino Man soundtrack as well. Metallica connection too.


Thank you, God bless you, sweet dreams you lot of tarts, Good-bye!

Well, that doesn't necessarily mean that POTU or Stone Cold Crazy was a hit. They're popular, but was only included on GHIII and Classic Queen for completion; I mean, a lot of the tracks on GHIII were there for completion ;)

Here's my picks:

Liar
Ogre Battle
Brighton Rock
'39
Tie Your Mother Down
Fight From The Inside
More Of That Jazz
Dragon Attack
The Hero
Put Out The Fire
Keep Passing The Open Windows
Don't Lose Your Head
Scandal
The Hitman
Mother Love

Live Tracks you could include if you want (from live albums)

Killers - Death On Two Legs
Wembley - Hammer To Fall
Live At The Bowl - Action This Day

You might not need to include them because you may only want studio tracks (plus time constraints), but if you would want to add some live tracks, those are my picks


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'd replace SCC with Brighton Rock...it never made the greatest hits, sure it was a big concert number at a point but I don't think that it's well-kwown outside of Queen circles. Certainly not one of my non-Queen-fan friends knows the song. Even In The Lap of the Gods (or revisited)...concert staples at a point though not all that well-known...
