2I Want to Break Free
Oh, wow, I thought Roger wrote this one. I love this song. I love the video, and it's so funny the way each of them is dressed up. Especially Freddie, keeping that beautiful signature mustache. I also laugh whenever I see Roger dressed up as a schoolgirl.
Long live Queen. Long live Freddie Mercury.
Since "Misfire" (sorely underrated) isn't an option, I Want to Break Free gets my vote. It's simple but effective, even without the silly (and brilliant) video.
Amazing. I relate on every level. Also, BEST. VIDEO. EVER!

3Spread Your Wings
Should have been on Greatest Hits as it was a classic song. It reached number 34 in the UK, but was released after the album.
My pick~me~up song
Best song ever

4You're My Best Friend
Wrote it for his wife, as they got married this year. HUGE hit. Everyone knows this song.

5One Year of Love
The finest song from John and Freddie. Without John Deacon's melody or Freddie Mercury's voice, this song wouldn't be so emotional and enchanting. If I have to live by only one song, this could be it.

6You And I
This, along with Spread Your Wings, really deserved to be better known than it is. Both songs are superb, lyrically strong, catchy without relying on simple repetitive chords, and just plain fun to listen to. Ultimately, I voted for You and I as I think Spread Your Wings is finally starting to get some long-due respect (was on the recent Deep Cuts II album) whilst this one is still languishing in relative obscurity.

The Contenders

11My Life Has Been Saved
The last song written by John Deacon. A brilliant song, especially the version on "Made in Heaven". The song is one final masterpiece from the second greatest songwriter in Queen.
