You name Misfire as good and White Queen as bad? Are you joking or deaf?

1. I like somewhat
2. Not too bad...but high on the cheese factor, and hasn't aged well.
3. I skip it every time
4) I skip it every time
5) ditto
6) Love it... but again.. it's aged about as well as the outfits worn on Miami Vice.
7) Yep, way sucks
8) Love it
9) Brian should stick to guitar playing... he's about as convincing singing this song as Michael Jackson would be portraying John Wayne in a Western cowboy movie.
10) Misfire gets skipped
11) Don't mind Fun It
12) Perhaps Freddie's worst song?? I don't know what it is, but I feel like I am a homosexer everytime I hear this one.... way cheezy recording... Makes "Delilah" sound like "Highway to Hell."

Funny side note.... everyone screams how much Hot Space blows.... but no one has mentioned a Hot Space song yet.

*I* for one own other Queen albums I listen to less then Hot Space... I don't feel it's their worst.

I don't think the songs on Hot Space are so bad as the way the studio recordings were recorded...

I mean, Action, Backchat, and Staying Power, to me...are the highlights of 1982 Milton Keyes.

But the studio versions of these songs sound like Boy George and Wham were the producers trying to achieve the ultimate gay bar sound track.

Honestly I`m not joking but White Queen really didn`t do anything to me in all these years I´m listening to Queen. It`s quite simply boring in my opinion. And Misfire is really an uplifting song. I like it`s atmosphere. For God´s sake taste`s are different.

Oh my God you people!!! I'm shocked that FWBF figures on many of the lists!!! This is my 2nd favourite song... Anyway... everyboby with his/her own tastes. But still!... My CD would look smth like this:

1. My Baby Does Me
2. Party
3. Khashoggi's Ship
4. You Don't Fool Me
5. Son & Daughter
6. Sweet Lady
7. She Makes Me
8. Now I'm Here
9. Coming Soon
10. Action This Day
11. Life Is Real
12. Calling All Girls

That's about it!!! A Queen album has somewhere around 10-12 tracks... so I guess that's enough!
ButI am deeply hurt about the FWBF thingy ... :(((((((((((

With the exception of Dancer, which again, in my opinion... is not Brian's worst song by a longshot, as I can name at least 10 others of his I like less...this is essentially a Freddie album.

Of course, when you are the chief songwriter, your going to have some hits and misses.... Freddie still has the most hits of the group.

1) Dancer
2) Cool Cat

That's all. More of a single than an album.

To make it an album, fill the rest with bad remixes and collaborations, such as AOBTD by Wyclef Jean, AOBTD by Miami Vice, The Show Must Go On sung by Elton John, etc.

I stopped paying attention when I saw White Queen listed.
Music is for people with functioning ears, I think. To say nothing of MILLIONARE FUCKING WALTZ being mentioned.... what the fuck!

Hot Space is one of the best albums, if you talk about production. Every little thing is right. Compare it to The Works. That album is a joke. A cd full with shit and only 9 tracks? WTF.

Hot Space has everything: a rocking guitar, a nice crispy Telecaster sound guitar, real cool synths, a full amount of bass, some strong drums and crystal clear vocals.

And yes, it was an experiment. And okay, it didn't work very well. And yes, I also agree that some songs sound way better live. But Hot Space is a top-notch album about they way you hear it. Together with Queen II and A Day At The Races, the best produced album by Queen. But that is my humble opinion.

Top ten worst Queen songs:
1. Body language (this is pure shit in any language)
2. Machines or back to humans (how about back to Queen)
3. Pain is so close to pleasure (this song is closer to crap)
4. My baby does me (what a joke)
5. Delilah (just plain embarrassing)
6. One year of love (Awful)
7. Cool cat (a dead cat would sound better)
8. Man on the prowl (come on, Freddie. Rehashing your own songs, that’s sad)
9. More of that jazz (I would prefer less of that shit)
10. Rain must fall (This song must go!)
