Your FAVOURITE SONG from each Queen album

Serious discussion about the band known as QUEEN.

Your FAVOURITE SONG from each Queen album

Postby jimbo » Fri Jan 24, 2014 11:15 pm

This has probably been done before, but I thought it might be fun to list your favourite song from each album, here are mine :)

Queen - Doing All Right
QueenII - March Of The Black Queen
Sheer Heart Attack - Brighton Rock
A Night At The Opera - Bohemian Rhapsody
A Day At The Races - Somebody to Love
News Of the World - Spread Your Wings
Jazz - Don't Stop Me Now
The Game - Save Me
Flash Gordon - The Hero
Hot Space - Under Pressure
The Works - Hammer To Fall
A Kind Of Magic - Who Wants To Live Forever
The Miracle - Breakthru
Innuendo - Innuendo
Made In Heaven - Let Me Live

I will have a think about my runners-up for each album and list them later!

So am looking forward to seeing other people's lists :-D

The challenge is to initially just pick one track for each album, which can be soooo difficult to do!

For me it was almost impossible to pick a favourite for albums like SHA and ADATR, as almost every single track is superb, and I even had trouble with Flash Gordon, in fact I've just changed my choice :shock:

And these lists would make fantastic personal compilation albums, I'd love to hear those tracks above played in that order!

Edit:-
Here are my 2 runners-up for each album in order:-

Queen - Great King Rat/My Fairy King
QueenII - Nevermore/Funny How Love Is
Sheer Heart Attack - Tenement Funster/Flick Of The Wrist
A Night At The Opera - 39/Sweet lady
A Day At The Races - You And I/Long Away
News Of The World - It's Late/Who Needs You
Jazz - Fat Bottomed Girls/More Of That Jazz
The Game - Dragon Attack/Sail Away Sweet Sister
Flash Gordon - Football Fight/Battle Theme
Hot Space - Back Chat/Cool Cat
The Works - I Want To Break Free/RadioGaGa
A Kind Of Magic - One Vision/Princes Of The Universe
The Miracle - Invisible Man/Was It All Worth it
Innunendo - These Are The Days Of Our Lives/Show Must Go On
Made In Heaven - Winters Tale/Mother Love

For the first 8 albums, again, this was really difficult to choose!

Hot Space is actually only my 6th favourite Queen album.
(But is a very underrated album in my opinion).

Very similar to mine!

And Nevermore and I Want To Break Free would be in my runners-up list.
Hot Space is actually only my 6th favourite Queen album.

Again this is quite similar to mine, as Radio Gaga, Princes of the Universe, These Are The Days Of Our Lives and Mother Love would all probably be on my runners-up list!

It is indeed really hard to do, and I'm definitely including 2 runners-up for each album when I've finally decided on them tomorrow :-D

Doing this shows just how good some Queen albums are, as for example You Take My Breath Away, My Melancholy Blues and Need Your loving Tonight are all absolutely superb songs, but none of them are going to make it into my Top 3 tracks for each album!

Yes, it's nearly impossible to choose between some of them. Queens catalogue is just too damn good.

Queen - Side A - Side B best track Great King Rat
QueenII - White Side - Black Side March of the Black Queen
Sheer Heart Attack - Side A - Side B Brighton Rock
A Night At The Opera - Side A - Side B The Prophet's Song
A Day At The Races - Side A - Side B White Man
News Of the World - Side A - Side B It's Late
Jazz - Side A - Side B Death on Time
The Game - Side A - Side B Dragon Attack
Flash Gordon - The Hero and Football Fight
Hot Space - Put Out The fire
The Works - Side A - Side B - minus Break Free. Stand out track: Hammer To Fall, extended YES please
A Kind Of Magic - Side A - Side B - minus Pain is so close, Friends will be.. Stand out track: Who wants to live forever
The Miracle - Side A - Side B - minus Rain must fall, My baby does me. Stand out track: Was it all worth it
Innuendo - Side A - Side B Innuendo
Made In Heaven - Side A - Side B Made in Heaven

Complete different as Jimbo has asked, but I do like my Queen albums, so I merely listed the tracks which I don't care much about, the make a choice for the best track on every album is like being torn between to lovers, such a difficult choice to make, and it varies of course, its al mood depending. Queen made stunning albums, later on the road they still made strong and divers albums, but with some weaker tracks on it, in my humble opinion. I never cared that much for Rain must Fall, or Pain is so close. But I do know a lot of Queen fans who like these tracks a lot. And so it may!

Today my list looks like this. Tomorrow it will be different.

One or two are no-brainers for me (It's Late is my all time fave Queen song, so how can it not be my favourite from NOTW?) but QII, SHA, ANATO, ADATR etc contain so much quality that it really depends on what mood I'm in and, therefore, what style of music I want to listen to. Today it's Love Of My Life, tomorrow it may be Death On Two Legs.

Queen - Liar
QueenII - The Fairy Fellers Master Stroke
Sheer Heart Attack - Tenement Funster
A Night At The Opera - Love Of My Life
A Day At The Races - The Millionaire Waltz
News Of the World - It's Late
Jazz - Fat Bottomed Girls
The Game - Sail Away Sweet Sister
Flash Gordon - The Hero
Hot Space - Under Pressure
The Works - Radio Ga Ga
A Kind Of Magic - Who Wants To Live Forever
The Miracle - Was It All Worth It
Innuendo - These Are The Days Of Our Lives
Made In Heaven - Let Me Live

The Night Comes Down
The March Of The Black Queen
In The Lap Of The Gods [Not Revisited]
Death On Two Legs
Drowse
Get Down, Make Love
Mustapha
Dragon Attack
Football Fight
Under Pressure

These are tricky now, as I really don't like post 82 Queen until Innuendo...

Machines
Princes Of The Universe
I Want It All or Hang On In There from CD album version
All Gods People

I refuse to pick a track from Frankenstein's Made In Heaven as a) It's a compilation b) It's utter shite :P

You're joking aren't you Capt.? If I'm right you think that there is nothing worthwile going on or to be find on Made in Heaven? I must admit, I've been a 'Royalty' since 1974 and when released I had very confused feelings towards Made in Heaven, but I think that Made in Heaven isn't a Frankenstein, nor a swansong. Over the years I've started to rate Made in Heaven as a very strong album, maybe, just maybe an album Queen could have made when Freddie was still around.
But I for one is very curious to know what you don't like, or dislike about Made in Heaven.
