Best non single Queen song?

Best queen song that was never released as a single? For me it would probably be '39 or Father to son. how about you?

Best Queen song NOT on a single?

I guess that writes off about half the suggestions so far.

'39, Love of my Life, You And I, Drowse, IILWMC, Was It All Worth It... All been issued on singles!

"Fight from the Inside" or "You and I".

I'd probably put "You and I" first, actually, because I think it had more potential to be a hit, but I prefer "Fight from the Inside" myself.

Yeah you and i could have been a hit for sure. I like that one aswell. Fight from the inside is not one of my favs. Second worst song on The Great News of the world. Get down make love is easily the worst

Hmm, do songs that were on b-sides count as being on a single? :lol:

I'll go with Was It All Worth It, great song, and it was never an a- or b-side, or on an EP or anything of any sort like that.

Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?

B sides doesnt count as a single. Atleast i wouldnt say that. It has to be the a side to count as a single. But fat bottomed Girls/bicycle race was double a side so both counts as singles.

I think B sides count as "being on a single", after all, Roger famously made nearly as much money as Freddie did from the sales of Bohemian Rhapsody.

As for Love of my Life, that was an A side, even if it WAS a live version. How does that NOT count? :lookround:
