I've been going through alot of my Queen albums lately and figured I would listen to only the songs that only certain band members wrote. Well I turned my attention towards the songs that John Deacon wrote. I choose him first because he was the most quiet of all the Queen members and contributed less songs than the others did. I find myself really liking the songs that he wrote and I was wondering what everybody's favorite song that John wrote is. Obviously his 2 best known ones were "Another One Bites The Dust" and "I Want To Break Free" but me myself I feel my 2 favorite are "If you Can't Beat Them Join Them" and "Need Your Loving Tonight"......These 2 songs could have very easily been top selling and successful singles in there own right......So those 2 are mine what are your's????

Don't forget 'You're My Best Friend' - that's always one song that I almost forget about, then whenever I hear it I remember how good it is.

Having said that, my fave JD song is Spread Your Wings, followed by Need Your Loving Tonight.

I also really like You and I

Need Your Loving Tonight was written by Freddie not John but I like Spread Your Wings and You And I as my John songs I like best.

you´re my best friend


She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

They're all amazing, but I'd say Another One Bites the Dust is one of the best.

The riff is perfect, simply yet effective.

'Need Your Loving Tonight' (which is indeed John's, not Freddie's) is probably my big favourite of his. A close second would be 'My Life Has Been Saved'.


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.

No, just no.

And on topic I'd say "You and I" or "Misfire."

Spread Your Wings is true brilliance. You're My Best Friend always cheers me up and brings a smile to my face! I love Misfire-such a happy song. Also, In Only Seven Days!! One of my all time favorites! and i loooove If You Cant Beat Em and One Year Of Love (beautiful). John was an excellent songwriter.
