Was It All Worth It
Scandal
Hang On There
Keep Passing The Open Windows
Is This The World We Created
It's Late
Love Of My Life
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~

Drowse
Long Away
Las Palabras De Amor
Too Much Love Will Kill You
Pain Is So Close Pleasure
Hijack My Heart
A Dozen Red Roses for My Darling

Four singles in there, although a few only with limited releases. But despite them being singles and despite Too Much Love and Las Palabras being reasonably big hits, I still think they are under appreciated and not known in the mainstream.

(edit: I didn't read the rules. Take away the two that were on GH3 and add Calling All Girls and One Year of Love...two more that were singles somewhere)

I wonder what all the medals are for? :P

His list was great, March of the Black Queen isn't underrated by me, it's a masterpiece.
Spread your wings for sure, The BBC sessions version.

Personally I love 'Machines (or back to humans)' - Very overlooked, such a great vocal, I love the way Freddie spits out the venom at the end. The Roger robot voice...Love it, even the cheesy lyrics that haven't aged well. You've all been parahumanoidarianised.
‘...and I find myself thinkin', well, what would you do?’

Anything that Brian sang except for She Makes Me...that's about 7, right? :lol:

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

Dead On Time - sounds like Freddie soaring effortlessly above crushed up monster trucks

Modern Times Rock ‘n’ Roll - still sounds modern 45 years after it was recorded

Save Me - the most criminally neglected greatest hit

Gimme the Prize - considering Fred hated this, his voice is supernaturally powerful and fucking red special bagpipes yay!

Get Down Make Love - rhythmically profound (I have a music degree and I only figured out how they did it after listening to NOTW Raw). If you hate this, listen again...listen nicely...listen properly. Music degree dears! :cool:

Bijou - a sparkling little sapphire of exquisiteness. Like a Milk Tray Turkish Delight on Christmas Eve.

Good Company - the whole fucking World should be singing this masterpiece all the time, with barbershop quartetting of the jazz band.

I really like GDML, and Save Me is stunning, love that song although it's on the greatest hits album so doesn't count for this.

I love calling all girls and I even like the video (as cheesy as it may be)

Dear Friends
Lap of the Gods (the more operatic one)
The Kiss
Dreamers Ball
Good Company
All Dead, All Dead (particularly the version sung by Frederick)
You and I
John hated Hot Space. Frederick's favourite singer was not Paul Rodgers. Roger did not compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

You & I
Drowse
Sail Away Sweet Sister
Seaside Rendezvous
Tenement Funster
My Melancholy Blues
Spread Your Wings
Each morning I get up and die a little....
Our lives dictated by tradition, superstition, false religion
I feel like no one ever told the truth to me.
About growing up and what a struggle it would be....
