Queen, for me, couldn't be more perfect but what do think has been the biggest mistake that Queen has made, either with an album, touring, etc, etc?

(Not refering to Queen + Paul Rodgers)

- I would say... not having a few more classic songs into the magic tour song line-up.

- And having albums like the Works and AKOM with a mere 9 songs. 9 songs, in my view, wasn't enough.

To me, that was the only GOOD thing about those albums. I can't imagine another two or three songs being added on to those albums, unless they were better than the others on the albums.

This is rather miniscule, but I don't like the tag on ending of March of the Black Queen that leads into Funny How Love Is.
I think the song is perfect the way it is, with the melancholy guitar at the end; I rather hate the lead in to Funny How Love Is.
But it's a small thing, really.
Cheers

Nevermore being really short, i love that song it should be much longer then it is.
Body Language wasnt a good song so that too.
You Dont Fool Me song is boring and WTF is up with the video for it, that too is crap. Thats it really.

that they didn't performed 3-4 promo concerts in year 1988,(for album the miracle) i don't mean like 30 songs, just 6-7 songs from the new album and 3-4 older songs. freddie would've still been able to perform in late 1988 to early 1989.

sun city - huge political error
akom - should've been left as a flim score rather than a queen album
hot space - awful
works - syn drums, too much electro pop
live magic - bad editing, bad mix
the false boobs in s/america - misjudgement

Funny, but before I read this post, these are all the things I thought of, too! Weird!
Although Hot Space is certainly better than AWFUL, IMO.


This can't end well.

Hot Space wasnt THAT bad, dont forget disco had came along in the early 80s. Also Freddie was influenced by it back then so you cant really blame them. Queens music changed alot and thats what keeps them fresh and enjoyable to hear. I guess when they saw it took a wrong turn for them they never went back down that road again.

Honestly, I can't think of anything I really dont love about Queen. Even the songs that I'm not absolutly crazy about are still amazing to me :) I'm not a big fan of the songs The Invisible Man or Headlong but I still listen and dance to them becuase just knowing its by Queen makes a song like 5948 times more amazing to me :)

hindsight is always 20/20


Freddie: "Yes, we'll have a great big cock fly over the crowd!"

Roadies: "Yeah! Great Idea!"

Freddie: "And it will fly into a great big mouth with a moustache!"

I really don't like it that the average music listener only knows the greatest hits songs from queen.
Queen were much better then most of the greatest hits songs. I think queen has chosen the easiest/most save way in the 80's with all those pop tracks. Alltough I always liked Freddies voice

It pains me to write this, because I think John Deacon is the best thing since sliced bread, but I really do not like Who Needs You. It just dosen't float my boat at all.

Odd, that's probably one of my favorite Queen songs. Heh.

Nevermore is one of those Queen songs that I can't listen to just once. It takes at least two consecutive playings to be satisfied. Same with the second halves of Teo Torriatte and The Show Must Go On. It takes some powerful music to do that.

Id say the biggest regret could have been them signing to Trident when they were first starting off because when they wanted to leave Trident it was a very messy affair that messed up their finances but i cant think of any other possible regrets


that's not a regret...without trident - they wouldn't have had to "pull the ultimate rabbit out of the hat" to pay the bills ...the whole trident thing made the ANATO album possible...they were driven to prove their point
