It`s A Hard Life from Rock In Rio. Absolutely perfect! They should have played it at the 1986 tour as well.

Yeah I remember being disappointed that it was the only Works single not kept in the set for the Magic tour. Probably dropped because Freddie really struggled with the intro. He also forgot some lyrics at Rio.

Tie Your Mother Down.

Hate the studio version, it lacks the energy a heavy song like that deserves. Live they were able to really let rip and it suits the song much better.

Seven Seas of Rhye, especially in the last tour, had more going for it than on the record too.

Pity that Queen haven't released more live material - so much of their stuff sounds better live.

Anything from Hot Space..... yes even Under Pressure.
Many other songs sound better live but one that stands out to me is white queen.
Money can't buy happiness....... but it can buy decent music!!!

"White Queen" - for the awesome piano/guitar solo not on the studio version
"Now I'm Here" - after hearing the live versions, the studio take sounds like it's running at half speed
"Tie Your Mother Down" - as others have said, the live version was so much more powerful
"A Kind of Magic" - same as above, the studio version's just too timid for me (I prefer the original, rockier studio version from Highlander)

And pretty much anything from Hot Space.
