David Bowie was there, Under Pressure with David would've been awesome.

Hammer To Fall had lyrics that generation could relate to, plus it scorched the audience. They needed a loud guitar driven song. Queen is about being diverse. The occasion showed off different styles they could do. Not the same track over and over. Can you imagine them performing Fat Bottomed Girls, Tie Your Mother Down, or Put Out The Fire in Hammer To Fall’s place for the occasion? Neither can I.

Another One Bites The Dust? Oh my God, it appears people on here forgot what Live Aid was about.

I think they could have ditched the Mercury and May slot, and had Queen and Bowie doing under pressure instead. But they didn't. Anyway it was a good show they pulled off in both slots.

I am concerned you are not taking this seriously enough. For example, surely Middle of the Road's 'Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep' should be on that list...

They rehearsed an Ottawan medley of Hands Up and D.I.S.C.O. but I think their time ran out.
