Apologies if this has been covered before. But was just wondering what you all thought was the best track Queen made that was never released as a single - here in the UK that is.

I remember when The Miracle was released that 'Was it all worth it' had single written all over it. I began imagining what the video may be like, waited for it to be released but couldnt believe it when it never was, instead sub-standard material like Invisible Man and Scandal were released instead.

So Was It All Worth It would probably be top of my list, followed perhaps by 'I cant live with you'. Anyone else?

Ride The Wild Wind (instead of Headlong)

In fact, polish radio played Ride The Wild Wind instead of Headlong and it climbed to no.14 when Fred was still alive. After his passing RTWW hit no.1 for four weeks.

One Year of Love
Made in Heaven(queen version)


i'm not talking about personal favs, but songs that would be very good singles, possibly reaching top 5

I guess Ride The Wild Wind would have been a bit too much like the resurrection of Breakthru, right? I think they should have released more singles in the beginning of their career. Let's say My Fairy King or even Nevermore. Rock It would have made a nice single too.

Definitely >Was It All Worth It< for the one that never was.

But on a more interesting note, Let Me Live, imo, should've been released from the MIH album first. I know there will be plenty that say it's a hack job track, but for me, it's a track that many joe-public would like.

Peace,
Adam.

Promoting the last album recorded by Freddie Mercury with a track that featured more non-Freddie than Freddie vocals probably wasn't the best to start with.

Promoting the "album with the last songs Freddie recorded" with a track from 1987/88 wasn't the greatest idea either. But MIH was just a compilation album anyway.

March Of The Black Queen was an even bigger gamble than Bohemian Rhapsody - no way were they going to release that. The record company would have laughed them out of the office if it was proposed.

As for best single that never was, Was It All Worth It should have been the final single from The Miracle, with You And I a close second. Would've liked to have seen Keep Passing The Open Windows, too.
