Best Worst
1- Keep Yourself Alive Modern Times R & R
2- Funny How Love Is Loser In The End
SHA- Now I'm Here Leroy Brown
ANATO-Prophet's Song Lazing on a Sunday
ADATR-Tie Your Mother Good Old Fashioned
NOTW- It's Late Get Down (reluctantly)
J- Fat Bottomed Girls Dreamers Ball
TG- Dragon Attack Don't Try Suicide
FG- The Hero The Ring (?)
HS- Put Out The Fire Cool Cat
TW- Keep Passing The Man On The Prowl
AKOM- One Vision Pain Is So Close
TM- I Want It All Rain Must Fall
I- Days Of Our Lives Hitman
MIH- Too Much Love I Was Born To Love

It was difficult to have a "worst" from Flash Gordon(they aren't all songs, per se) and News of the World because I really don't dislike any of the songs on that album, as opposed to all the others-those are songs I really don't care for. Any comments?

Queen
Best: Doing Alright
Worst: Jesus (it's not a great song melodywise)

Queen II
Best: White Queen (great musical structure)
Worst: Loser in the end (boring. Repetetive)

Sheer Heart Attack
Best: Killer Queen (a true classic for its time)
Worst: She Makes Me (play this when you are really depressed, and you will jump of a building)

A Night At The Opera
Best: Bohemian Rhapsody (although I've heard it millions if times, it's the classic of classic rock songs)
Worst: Prophet Song (too tedious, should have probably been on QueenII considering the vocal overdubs and the "theme" part of this song)

A Day At The Races
Best: You and I (upbeat to-make-you happy song)
Worst: Drowse (another boring Roger song, sorry, but his songs in this era (1971-1979) are the worst composed and the most boring)

News Of The World
Best: My Melancholy Blues (that it is the most senstive song, with a lot of depth to it. Amazing!)
Worst: Fight From The Inside (probablay a rejected C side from Roger's I wanna Testify single)

Jazz
Best: Let me entertain you (rocks! And performed life even more!)
Worst: More of that Jazz (boring. probably a rejected D-side to Roger's I wanna Testify single)

The Game
Best: Crazy little thing called love ( a simple but so extremely efective rock-a-billy song )
Worst: Rock it (boring ... how come Roger mostly produces the crap songs in the seventies?)

Hot Space
Best: Las Palabras De Amor (the best produced, melodic, song of the album)
Worst: Cool Cat (plain boring and without any depth)

The Works
Best: I go Crazy (Really! although it's not really an album song...)
Worst: Machines (Or Back To Humans) ... Although I like some parts of the song, it's still a minor song)

A Kind Of Magic
Best: One Vision (I prefer the GHII edit! It just rocks. Volume at 10 !)
Worst: Princess of the universe (too many key changes/strange chord sequences)

The Miracle
Best: Was it all worth it (WOW! great lyrics, superb backing vocals, guitar solo, song structure!
Worst: Rain Must Fall (boring simple song)

Innuendo
Best: All God's people (a 1991 almost true 5.1 classic, even though 5.1 was not even invented for CD relaeas). Try to list to this one with 2 speakers in the corner and you will be amazed!
Worst: Delilah (without a doubt the most tedious song and totally out of place on the album)

Made In Heaven
Best: Let Me Live (although Freddie is not present in the majority of the song on the verses, it still is the best song on the album. Great piano playing (apart from the end), great guitar solo, great backing vocals, great lyrics, and superb change of vocalist - even though this is understandable because Freddie didnt finish the song)
Worst: I was born to love you (the song is crap produced especially in the 2nd verse with drums/minor guitars)
