My question is...whose was the best song writer of the four?...Freddie wrote classics like WATC and CLTCL...John wrote funk based songs like AOBTD and Back Chat...Roger wrote the stadium anthem Radio Ga Ga and also Fight From The Inside...and lastly Brian wrote songs like the classic '39 and the wonderful WWTLF...Cheers!!!

But David Bowie co-wrote Under Pressure. He was by-far the best of the 5. Ziggy, Aladdin, Diamond Dogs, etc.

Hmm...Freddies songs are just so much fun, and he has a lovely ballad side of him (ex, Love Of My Life) but I just love his fun stuff! And Barcelona (the album)is epic, it really is, and it must have taken alot to right those songs. Ok, so I think Freddie is my favourite, and I love Deakys songs, and Brians are awesome too, and Rogers allright.

I think Freddie is the best, then Brian, then Roger and John. They're all very good though.
