I was watching VH1's latest countdown show, the 100 greatest songs from the 80s and happily Queen made the list with "Under Pressure" at #31. I don't know if anything else made the top 20 as the last segment airs tonight. I'd be surprised if "Another One Bites the Dust" was left off the list.

Well not surprising considering all the crappy songs the released in the 80's. Under pressure would probably be the best of the lot. Although my vote would go to either Hammer to fall or Play the game

Not forgetting 'I Want To Break Free', 'Radio Ga-Ga', 'I Want It All', 'A Kind of Magic' (not so sure on that one), and although it wont be on the list, 'La Pablas Des Las Armor' was one of the better songs of the eightees.

I cant think of any others though, perhaps 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love'? Please tell us if any more Queen gets into the top twenty!

"Under Pressure" was Queen's only entry in the countdown.

I saw another list of best 80s songs and it was #11 and the list came out Friday.
