Favorite Queen (band) Song

Mon Jul 15, 2013 12:42 am

The band Queen has been around since the 1970s and was best known for their eccentric front-man Freddy Mercury. I personally was never a fan of the group however I really do dig classic rock stuff from the 1970s. Everyone has heard Bohemian Rhapsody or We Will Rock You however I have recently really taken to liking The Show Must Go On. It has an amazing guitar solo and the lyrics are brilliant. Like with anything, I like to read more into things and was very surprised to see Freddy Mercury (as people knew him) was born as Faroukh Bulsara in Zanzibar. He was raised in the Zoroastrian faith (a religion I usually associated with people of Iranian/Persian decent although I now see many Indians also accepted this faith).

So, what would you say is your favorite song by the iconic band Queen?

No question...my favorite absolutely is "We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions!!!"

When I was a high school band director, I had a really nice version of that for the band to play at school sporting events.

Lots of good stuff form Queen that I really like, but that one is at the top for me.

As a huge fan of Queen, I must object to that characterization. The band Queen ended when Freddie Mercury died in the early 1990s. Some of its members, though, still like to tour and sing some of the songs.

Hard to choose, but I rally like "Princes of the Universe" - it even made a mediocre film (The Highlander) watchable.

I like far too many Queen songs to pick just one. However, here are a few of my personal favorites and the albums upon which they appear in chronological order:

"Stone Cold Crazy" from Sheer Heart Attack

"The Prophet's Song" from A Night At The Opera
Truthfully, I like the entire A Night At The Opera album. I'll even go so far as to say that if you're only going to buy one Queen album, then A Night At The Opera is the one to get.

"Sleeping On The Sidewalk" from News Of The World
Except for "We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions", News Of The World is a thoroughly depressing album. If you buy it, you can't say you weren't warned about that.

"In Only Seven Days" from Jazz

"Dreamer's Ball" from Jazz
If you're only going to buy two Queen albums, then Jazz should be the second one you get.

It's funny, because reading through the thread, my top three kept changing as more people reminded me of other great songs. Which is the hallmark of a great band.

Freddie Mercury died in 1991. The Innuendo album had been released earlier that same year. I was working at a record store when that album was released and I became a huge fan at that point. (I remember their early stuff when I was a little kid but they fell of the radar in the US by the mid-80s).
I was so anxious to hear of a tour announcement and wanted to buy tickets but instead we got an announcement of Freddie Mercury's death.
Sadly the band is starting to remind me a lot of pro-wrestling with all of the circus acts they've brought in as a replacement. They shouldn't be allowed to use the 'Queen' name.

Queen opened their shows for a while with a fast, hard-rock version of We Will Rock You. That's a song almost guaranteed to get you a speeding ticket - you just can't help putting your foot down.

And then there's the entire Night At The Opera album, which has to be considered their magnum opus, although Innuendo did a damned fine job of it too. They knew that this was going to be the last album, and they wanted to end with a bang rather than a wimper - and succeeded.

In fact, coming back to individual songs, Innuendo is magnificent - sure they were copying Bohemian Rhapsody more than a little, but it worked.

I've done the speeding part. I have 'Killers Live' on 8track tape as well as the LP.

It's hard for me to pick & choose between those two.

I love the classical guitar part in the middle. That is one of their best songs ever.

I forget to mention in my previous post but yes you are correct. Listening to that song sounds as if Freddie Mercury knew his days were numbered and this was his farewell song. When Innuendo was released in early 1991, him having AIDS was just a rumor and no one knew for sure. The group photo on the inner-sleeve of the Innuendo LP, you can see that Freddie Mercury was much thinner and emaciated than before. Also months and months had went by without any tour dates announced. This was before the Internet so getting information was much slower.
Then at the end of the year, he goes public with his battle with AIDS and then died the next day. I still have the newspaper clipping from the Los Angeles Times stored in the record jacket of their Innuendo LP.

Aw man, now I've got "Death On Two Legs" playing over and over again in my head!

I suppose there are worse songs to have stuck in one's head, but tonight just isn't a "Death On Two Legs" kind of night.

No problem, I'll just perform a trick to get any song out of my head that was suggested by a friend of mine and which I will pass on to all you good people: To get a song out of your head, simply imagine the song being sung by Bob Dylan*.

*In the event it is a Bob Dylan song that happens to be stuck in your head, imagine the song being sung by Ethel Merman. It works every time.

I was in elementary school when I took an interest in rock bands and Queen was the first. Tough to decide on a favorite, but here are the top ones I can hear forever in no particular order.

Who wants to live forever
Under Pressure
Bohemian Rapsody
Princes of the Universe
One Vision
Show must go on
Flash Gordon
We Will Rock You/ We are the Champions
Radio ga ga
Another one Bites the Dust

Quoting Dreadnought (Reply 21):
although Innuendo did a damned fine job of it too.

That album is pure art, magic and energy.

And while not Queen, there is an excellent album made by Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé which is pretty wonderful. I´m not sure if they made it to promote the Barcelona Olympics but it shows a side of Mercury not pretty well known and with all respect to the Caballé Diva, Mercury takes the cake. Mercury in their "Barcelona" song is amazing.

"Dreamer's Ball" from Jazz

Played at my wedding.

Love all those and I have a few more.
In the Lap of the Gods (revisited) - After Freddie died, the line "Believe me, life goes on and on and on" made me sad.
Drowse - one of those great "capture a vibe" songs
Long Away - Brian strikes again
You and I - except the bridge part
It's Late - An amazing song. Surprised it hasn't been mentioned.
(edit add) Nevermore - didn't list before because it's so short. But it's a fave of mine and deserves to be added.

When they hit their stride with Night at the Opera, Day at the Races, and News of the World, Queen couldn't be beat. Heavily featured on my iPod, along with The Game, with singles from others in there as well.
Edit: Forgot to add one that I hadn't heard until they tacked it on the the casette re-release of Queen II in the 90s. "See What a Fool I've Been" has some Freddie canp, some blues, some great Brian guitars. There are 2 versions and I'm not sure what I prefer...
The one on the tape:

Hands down 'Good Old-fashioned Lover Boy' - disappointed not to see that already on here!

Followed closely by 'Killer Queen' and 'Don't Stop Me Now'
