I know that Queen is mostly known for Bohemian Rhapsody aka Bo-Rap, We will rock you, We are the Champions, and Another one bites the dust...but I know a lot of people on here knows WAY more songs then just those four that I mentioned...So, what do song do you think by Queen is most underrated that they did...

Mines would have be "Now I'm here". I just love the guitar in the beginning...and I love how Freddie says: Dont worry baby, I'm still safe and sound...down in the dungeon just peaches n'me!(I think its soooo sexy!)I have it as my signature!

Anyways...what song do you think by Queen is very underrated, but very good?

Well there are five that don't get wider ecognition for me. Good Old Fashioned Loverboy is a deligthful showtune that did not get the commercial success it deserved, Las Parablas De Amor, a beautiful, UNDERSTATED Queen song that rescued Hot Space, The Hitman, a thunderous rocker off Innuendo that proved that they'd returned to the hard rock fold. Then there's You Take My breath Away, Mercury's stunning love ballad that rathe runfairly rests in the shadow of love of my Life and finally there is the criminally underrated Keep passing the Open Windows- certainly a Mercury classic in his inconsistent later years.

God, there's soooooo many!
Love of my life...and The Miracle didn't get enough attention at all!
I'm so surprised that alot of their songs didn't make number 1 or atleast top 10!
You could say, popular as they are, that elements of Queen has been under-rated!

Mine would have to be It's Late. Sure it seems most Queen fans rate this song pretty highly, but the gneral public has no clue of it's existence. Why this song isn't played on classic rock stations 5 times a day is beyond me.

I've always thought it would be Keep Yourself Alive. It's a great song and I can't understand how and why it did not chart!!!!! Come on, it's great!

If I can only choose one, than I must agree with Bromo.

"It's Late."

"Who Needs You"....without question. For some reason, Queen fans don't seem to like this song. I think its an awesome song and its the only example I know of John writing outside of his normal format. Definitely unorthodox for him. And not to mention some great guitar work.

Don't Stop Me Now – okay, it charted and no-one dislikes it – but IMO it's more: it's one of the best pop/rock songs of all times. Breathtaking from the first to the last note, Queen at their best.

I think it's best compared to Boomtown Rats' "I Don't Like Mondays". That had and still has much more airplay though it is far inferior to DSMN.

For me, the most underrated Quen songs would have to be Great King Rat (my personal favourite, and a great reply to anyone who says that Queen didn't know what 'heavy' meant) and Misfire (one of JD's absolute best and a really sparkling gem hidden in Sheer Heart Attack)
