What are your favorite Queen songs that tend to be viewed in more of a negative light? I can think of a few immediately.

Modern Times' Rock and Roll - I always see people saying this is one of the weaker songs off their debut album. I can't disagree more, its short and quick and it rocks. I think it was even better live with Freddie on vocals.

Funny How Love Is - no, not the best song of Queen II, but some think it shouldn't have even included on the album. The way it is sung almost makes it seem like it's leading to some climactic point on the album and IMO that's pretty cool.

Sweet Lady - this song just rocks, I don't see the problem people could have with this one. OK, maybe the "some kind of a cheese" line, but could you do any better?

Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy - one of Freddie's best IMO, very catchy and an excellent guitar solo.

Fight From The Inside - just a really good rock song in my mind.


Need Your Loving Tonight - always has been one of my absolute favorite songs, love the guitar in the middle.

Tear It Up - no idea what people could have against this one. Queen hadn't rocked like this since Jazz!

I Can't Live With You - sick song by Brian. Another one of the times he brought hard rock into Queen's later albums and this is probably the best example of it, I like it even more than Hammer To Fall.

Body Language. I love it! I love the way Freddie says, "Give me your boda-a-a-a-a-ay!" It sounds so cool. My friends think it's perverted but I think it is awesome!

Good Company is one of my faves--I relate SOOOO much to this song--I've lived it! Maybe people don't like the old-fashioned sound of it, but that's one of the things I like about it. And I like the sounds of the words Brian uses (but I love most of his lyrics anyways).

'She Makes Me'
So many people don't like it and find it boring but I really like it. It's one of my favourites off Sheer Heart attack.

Jesus, its seems like only 1 in 3 actually like this song, its a good song, if only I could think of a piece of a song that could replace the guitar solo, i could make a cool little mix...


Roger: Can I go To Lunch Now?

Brian: No, You Can't...

Cool! It was nice over there (maybe too nice?), but there is much more interesting stuff going on over here. What do you think?

Queen Fans doesn't have a lot of people so it's very cozy. Also everyone on there is friendly. Queenzone has a lot more people so it makes it a little more interesting. I like both sites.

Well I love MTR&R- what a great surprise it would have been ha dthe yplayed it on the Magic tour- fast, furious punk-metal. I think Mustapha is under-rated too, I love those vocal harmonies and the heavy metal guitar breaks. A word also for The Invisible Man, a song that I think has aged very well with a rip-roaring solo and a catchy beat. Great Fred vocals too- fun but menacing.

“All dead, all dead” – I love the dream like quality
“Mustapha” – The most original album opener of all time, rocks too
“Coming soon” – I like the coolness and new wave feel, one of Roger’s best
“Party” – I bet this song would have been a blast live!

I'm gonna say Innuendo...

I don't know if ya saw it, but when they had Queen on American Idol, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell said Innuendo was a bad song!!?? I couldn't BELEIVE it!! I actually threw something at the TV and shouted abuse at it, it's a brilliant song! They had no bloody idea what they were talking about.

I have always loved much maligned Queen songs such as Body Language and especially Sweet Lady. SL has one of my all time favorite guitar riffs and I was so happy to see Brian playing a snippet of it on the new Classic Albums- ANATO dvd.
As for Delilah, I have often said that if it was a b-side, such as Lost Opportunity, it would have fared much better in our eyes. Instead, it was entrenched in one of Queen's best albums, and naturally sticks out as the weak point. Put it onto a b-side, however, and as a stand alone song, especially considering Freddie's situation, it would hold a great deal of charm.
