If you had to put together a Queen album, which best showed off Queen's music, lyrics, diversity, flare and majesty, then what would you put on that album? The ultimate Queen album so to speak. An album you would put together to introduce new people to best showpiece their talents!

Now it would be a studio album, so probably no more than 14 tracks but I am going to cheat and do 18 tracks as that is the number of tracks that was on the 'Flash Gordon' album. Yes I know it was a soundtrack but I found it too hard for just 14 tracks.

Anyway, I really look forward to what you all will put but as for myself, my album and the song order would be :-


- 1) Innuendo

- 2) Death On Two Legs

- 3) Great King Rat

- 4) My Fairy King

- 5) The Prophet's Song

- 6) Love Of My Life

- 7) The Millionaire's Waltz

- 8) Killer Queen

- 9) Somebody To Love

- 10) It's Late

- 11) You Take My Breath Away

- 12) These Are The Day's Of Our Lives

- 13) The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke

- 14) Nevermore

- 15) March Of The Black Queen

- 16) Bohemian Rhapsody

- 17) Was It All Worth It

- 18) The Show Must Go On


Now this may change from day to day, as so many songs have been left off but I have tried to vary the tracks and show off Queen's music. Let us see what you can do! :-)

I really thought there would be loads of replies to this topic and I was really genuinely looking forward to seeing everyone's choices.

I don't suppose anybody wants to reply now, even if it is just out of pity? ;-)

I'd do it chronologically and make sure I included one song from every album. I also attempted to stay away from their greatest hits.

1.) Jesus
2.) Father to Son
3.) March of the Black Queen
4.) Flick of the Wrist
5.) Death on Two Legs (Dedicated to...)
6.) Bohemian Rhapsody
7.) The Millionare Waltz
8.) Spread Your Wings
9.) My Melancholy Blues
10.) Don't Stop Me Now
11.) Dragon Attack
12.) Under Pressure (like I'm going to take another song from Hot Space, gimmie a break)
13.) Is This the World We Created...?
14.) Who Wants to Live Forever?
15.) Breakthru
16.) Innuendo
17.) These Are the Days of Our Lives
18.) Let Me Live

The reason you can't do 14 songs is that equals out to less than one song per album. Additionally, I've very pleased I was albe to end on an "up" note; Let Me Live is a very beautiful, optimistic song.


This is what you wanted, this is what you're going to get.

Hm... hard very hard.... To show their diversity and unique way of changing style I would do this...:

1- Innuendo
2- Misfire
3- All dead All dead
4- Drowse
5- Stone Cold Crazy
6- Breakthru
7- Good Company
8- The prophet's song
9- Somebody to love
10- Killer Queen
11- Dragon attack/Another one bites the dust
12- Bring back that Leroy brown
13- The march of the black queen
14- Under Pressure
15- Sail away sweet sister
16- Bohemian Rhapsody
17- It's late
18- The millionare waltz
19- My fairy king
20- In the lap of the Gods...revisited

Maybe... I would like to have Was it all worth it too... and many more, this list will change... :) Sorry that I took 20 songs, but I couldn't take just 18...

Well, I would say one song of each album. My choice therefore would be:

1. My Fairy King
2. Ogre Battle
3. Flick of the Wrist
4. Bohemian Rhapsody
5. The Millionaire Waltz
6. We are the Champions
7. Don't Stop Me Now / Mustapha
8. Play the Game
9. Flash
10. Under Pressure
11. Radio Ga Ga
12. Princes of the Universe
13. Was it all worth it
14. Innuendo
15. I Was born to Love You


Well - if you ask me tomorrow it might be different :-)



Live life to the full!

So is that what you would choose if it did not have to be a song from each album?
