In my computer I have the Queen discography divided into "Great songs" and "Not so great songs". The "Great Songs" folder contains over 60 songs, so it will be difficult to choose only ten.

Best, in no particular order except for number 1:

Bohemian Rhapsody
You take my breath away
The show must go on
Death on two legs
Don't stop me now
Innuendo
Princes of the universe
Headlong
Killer Queen
Jealousy

Worst:

I'm in love with my car
Under pressure (so overrated)
We will rock you
Las palabras de amor
Party
Well, the whole "Hot Space"

I dont mind "more of that jazz". I kind of like the guitars and rogers voice here. They shouldt have mixed the other songs in to it though. Thats the bad thing about that song. Otherwise a good rock tune


What a great band!

Queen II is definitely overrated (it's because people say it's underrated), but the album still has some great songs and ideas but the way they recorded those songs were incredibly weak. For instance, White Queen and March of the Black Queen are awesome songs but they were recorded like shit. The live versions of the White Queen are ten times better than the studio and MOTBQ worked well live as part of the medley.

I'm surprised no one has put More of that Jazz in the worst list.

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

Worst? Chinese Torture sucks ass and is well named. It's almost as bad as a Kiss song.

Best:
1. Bohemian rhapsody
2. The march of the black queen
3. Innuendo
4. These are the days of our lives
5. Flick of the wrist
6. In the lap of the gods
7. The prophet's song
8. The fairy feller's master stroke
9. Somebody to love
10. '39

And lots more. ITLOTG...Revisited, WWRY fast version, the show must go on... I could name a gazillion more great Queen songs. Pretty much anything bombastic, tear-jerking or in any other way epic could have made it into that top 10.

Worst:
1. Kashoggi's ship. How can anyone even take this song seriously?
2. Party
3. Cool cat
4. Dancer
5. Put out the fire
6. Fight from the inside
7. Love of my life
8. Fun it
9. Delilah
10. We will rock you. Great and all, but they should have put the fast version on the album and made the slow one live-only.

That last list was a lot harder.

I think anyone who puts Jealousy or White Man in the list are total idiots.

Here is the best according to Digital Dream Door:

  1. Bohemian Rhapsody (Mercury) A Night at the Opera
  2. We Are the Champions/We Will Rock You (Mercury/May) News of the World
  3. Another One Bites the Dust (Deacon) The Game
  4. Under Pressure (Queen and David Bowie) Hot Space
  5. Crazy Little Thing Called Love (Mercury) The Game
  6. Killer Queen (Mercury) Sheer Heart Attack
  7. I Want to Break Free (Deacon) The Works
  8. Somebody to Love (Mercury) A Day at the Races
  9. Innuendo (Mercury) Innuendo
10. Radio Ga Ga (Taylor) The Works

I agree with many songs rated as the worst, but no "In The Lap of The God" or, more than anything, "Love of My LIfe". Oh, I forgot, somebody put also "Under Pressure" in the same category. Unbelievable!!!  Do you have wax in your ears, guys??? In fact, de gustibus non disputandum...ever

Sorry The Dude...but "Jesus" is awesome...don't know why so many slag this song.  Is it because it's about a religious figure?  Get over it.

Kashoggis Ship is a nice, fiesty little rocker from latter-day Queen...but I agree with all who listed "Party"....definitely one of my LEAST favorite Queen songs.

I'll take "More Of That Jazz" ANYDAY over "Party".
