across all the bonus bits on the deluxe albums, single collections, live albums... if we cobble them together i get 70 different Queen songs (not counting stupid stuff like god save the Queen and the various solo's with the only exception of rock in rio blues as that sounds like a real song if you like)

are there any more songs we dont have yet on a live album?

off the top of my head:
- put out the fire
- need your loving tonight
- body language

any more? 8-)

Put Out The Fire is available on DVD on the bonus of On Fire as part of a medley but I don't know if you count that...

Of what is known (or thought) to have been played and off the top of my head:

Doing All Right
Jesus
Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon
Sweet Lady (though it is on the documentary)
Prophet's Song
Millionaire Waltz
White Man
Sleeping On The Sidewalk (Believed to have been played once)
It's Late
If You Can't Beat' Em
Need Your Loving Tonight
Rock It (Prime Jive)
Body Language
Life Is Real

Hangman, Doing All Right, Sweet Lady, The Millionaire Waltz, The Prophet's Song, White Man, Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy, Teo Torriate if you don't count it being in Live At The Bowl's bonus footage, Lazing On a Sunday Afternoon, It's Late....

Probably some others I'm forgetting....

If you count the few times Brian did that on the Q&PR tours...

I don't count ANYTHING after Knebworth '86, as "Queen" playing something live. Half of Queen, or even three quarters of it (ie 20th April 1992), isn't Queen, well, not as we know it, Jim.

If we're just asking "generically" if a song has been played live, then there's every chance some tribute band, somewhere, has played just about every track Queen have ever released. I certainly heard a load I'd never heard played live before, in Montreux about four or five years ago.

Fair enough...I don't remember if I ever actually heard it or not, but years ago I heard of a tribute band that did Procession live!

I noticed you said Drowse, too, pretty sure that was never played. I've read The Night Comes Down was played in the early years, that would be pretty interesting to hear.

Thinking about it, there's truckloads I don't ever remember them doing live, certainly not as part of the standard set list.

Probably the big one that sticks out for me, was Princes. That would have made a stunning live song.
