I was wondering what Queen songs you guys would recommend listening to when one is down or depressed. I mean nothing of the hard rock type, something that will soothe your mind. The one that instantly springs to mind is "Spread Your Wings", "You're My Best Friend" and "Friends Will Be Friends". Any more?

Queen songs: Good Company, Stone Cold Crazy, Don't Stop Me Now, Was It All Worth It and my favourite, '39.

Solo songs: Is It Me, Nation Of Haircuts ... all the 'Electric Fire' album! And some others like China Belle, Love Token, Let Your Heart, Nazis, Golden Boy, I Was Born, Driven By You, Resurrection, etc.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

"You And I" always takes me away to that special place. It has such a beautiful meaning, it's so innocent yet so pure.

"Music is playing in the darkness and a lantern goes swinging by...Shadows flickering, my heart's jittering...just you and I"

Yet another one of those special songs that I hold close to my heart is "Dear Friends." When I first heard this song I immediatly softened up and lost control of my emotions. It's the song I'll often use to sooth my soul after having lost a love.

"So dear friends your love has gone, only tears to dwell upon...I dare not say as the wind must blow...so a love is lost, a love is won...go to sleep and dream again, soon your hopes will rise and then from all this gloom life can start anew and there'll be no crying soon."

"My Melancholy Blues" is probably one of Freddie's most gentle songs. It's the kind of song that you can just kick back and relax and take a load off of your shoulders. Need I say more? I think you've got the idea.

Sleeping on the Sidewalk
My Melancholy Blues (good one to sing to)

I Want To Break Free: No matter what is going on, this song always makes me smirk a little bit. Freddie just seems so happy and alive when he sings it. It's a song about a person so fed up with crap that he/she just has to break free and get away from it all. It's perfect for a car ride with the windows down and is also a good beat to walk to. I absolutely love this song and it is the reason I fell in love with Queen. John Deacon wrote one helluva song.

Keep Yourself Alive: It makes me want to rock out and give the finger to anyone or anything getting in the way of me living my life. Excellent rocker

I Was Born to Love You: This is the one of the last Queen related songs I was ever introduced to and it remains a favorite. It doesn't get any radio play and probably will never be featured in a commercial or movie soundtrack but the feelings convey are so honest and are shared with nothing held back. Its another one that forces me to smile whenver I hear it. It also makes me want to get up and dance around wherever I am. I'll always have a special place for this one.

most of my others have already been discussed so I wont waste your time. But something else that always cheers me up is the video on youtube that comes up when you search "In My Defence" (i dont like posting links) So check it out for yourself. It is an excellent fan tribute set to the Freddie song. It makes me think of what an extraordinary person Freddie was and how he lived his life with so much passion. Not only does it cheer me up but sometimes I feel like I want to cry but not out of sadness, just because I miss Freddie and the way he inspired me and many others.

wonderful Band. We all can agree
