Best Songs from Queen's "A Night at the Opera"


The Top TenXW

1Bohemian Rhapsody

It has to be this track, the greatest song ever created. Will never have an equal and will never be bettered. The entire album is classic/ progressive rock music at it's finest. Brilliant.

Easily the best Queen song, the 2nd best popular music song of all time (after Imagine-John Lennon) and arguably the most original song of all time.

There is no competition here. This one of the greatest songs EVER, let alone on this album.

I'm actually surprised this only has 27% of the votes. - jimicenafromintempo

2The Prophet's Song

This song got me to listen to Queen more properly. I remember clicking a video link to watch Bohemian Rhapsody Live but instead clicked this. My computer froze but the audio was fine and I fell in love. This song and Sweet Lady deserve recognition.

This song is mays beast! I think it was to compete with bohemian rhapsody.

That vocal part makes me feel like in a trip.
Also beginning instrumental...

3Death On Two Legs

I can understand why Freddie wrote this one... he was so right, when he did it! I listen to this song almost every day and think about those kind of people he had in his minde, so f... true every word of it. Love this song and dedicate to...

This is one of my favorites of all time! Dedicated to Norman Sheffield, my dears. It was their abusive manager. Or similar. I also ADORE Seaside Rendezvous. :D

I was going to vote for Bohemian Rhapsody, but I decided to give another song a chance. This is very good. Simply beautiful...

Amazing song. Its about time travelling. It's a man who went to space, and it was 1 year in his calculations, but when he comes back to earth, its been 100 years for all the people. Beautiful song.

5You're My Best Friend

Even though it could be seen as being overshodowed by Bohemian Rhapsody, You're My Best Friend is a perfect pop song. John Deacon shows his talent as a songwriter.

9Lazing On a Sunday Afternoon

This song is so much fun to listen too :D I love it and always have it on repeat. LISTEN to the sample please, you'll love it

10Seaside Rendezvous

Queen is one of the only bands of the 70s who can pull off the 20's and 30s music vibe without it being corny. This showing the perfect example!

The Contenders

11Good Company

Though this one is no so well-known as other tracks from this masterpiece, I think it deserves more attention to it than, for instance, '39 written by May also. It's one of the most underrated Queen songs, overshadowed by many other songs. The melody, philosophical lyrics and the great May singing lead and performing the whole jazz orchestra by only one guitar! Highly recommended!

12God Save the Queen
13Keep Yourself Alive

This song is from the album Queen I, Not a night at the opera.

Well it was rerecorded around this time frame
