I often have thought Queen screwed up, especially early on, with the singles that were promoted for their albums. Here's how I would have done it:

1st Liar(UNEDITED!!!)
2nd Doing Alright
3rd My Fairy King
4th Keep Yourself Alive
5th The Night Comes Down(too many singles, but who cares)

Queen II
1st Seven Seas of Rhye
2nd White Queen
3rd March of the Black Queen
4th Someday One Day
5th The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke

Sheer Heart Attack
1st Killer Queen
2nd Now I'm Here
3rd Bring Back That Leroy Brown
4th In The Lap of the Gods Revisited...
5th Lilly of the Valley

A Night at the Opera
1st Bo Rhap
2nd You're My Best Friend
3rd Love of my Life
4th The Prophet Song
5th '39

A Day at the Races
1st Tie Your Mother Down
2nd The Millionare Waltz
3rd Somebody To Love
4th Long Away
5th Drowse

News of the World
1st We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions
2nd Spread Your Wings
3rd Who Needs You
4th My Melancholy Blues
5th It's Late

1st Mustapha
2nd Fat Bottomed Girls/Bicycle Race
3rd Dreamer's Ball
4th Jealousy
5th Don't Stop Me Now

The Game
1st Crazy Little Thing Called Love
2nd Play The Game
3rd Dragon Attack
4th Another One Bites The Dust
5th Save Me

Flash Gordon
1st Flash Gordon
2nd The Hero

Hot Space
1st Under Pressure
2nd Las Palabras
3rd Life Is Real
4th Cool Cat
5th Calling All Girls

The Works
1st Hammer To Fall
2nd It's a Hard Life
3rd I Want To Break Free
4th I Go Crazy(would have made the album for me)
5th Keep On Passing The Open Windows

A Kind of Magic
1st One Vision
2nd A Kind of Magic
3rd Who Wants to Live Forever
4th One Year of Love
5th Gimme The Prize

The Miracle
1st I Want It All
2nd Breakthru
3rd Hang On In There/Chinese Water Torture
4th Was It All Worth It
5th The Invisible Man

1st Innuendo
2nd Don't Try So Hard
3rd These Are The Days of Our Lives
4th The Show Must Go On
5th I'm Going Slightly Mad

Made In Heaven
1st Made In Heaven
2nd Let Me Live
3rd Mother Love
4th You Don't Fool Me
5th I Was Born To Love You

The biggest mistakes in my opinion were sitting on Dreamer's Ball, The Millionare Waltz and Made In Heaven, all of which might have been MONSTROUS hits I would bet. Just as bad was choosing their first ever single to be KYA over Liar.
