Best Queen Songs Written by John Deacon


The Top TenXW

1Spread 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.

This is a great song that deserves more attention and is one of the best songs on the news of the world album

2Another One Bites the Dust

This song always gets stuck in my head

LOVE THE BASS! I'm not afraid to say this-Queen was the greatest band ever.If you were some random person who doesn't listen to rock,you would still recognise Bohemian Rhapsody,Somebody to Love,We Will Rock You & We Are The Champions! Queen is eternal...

3I 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!

It's a nice song and I also relate on it..

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.

6My 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.

7Who Needs You

Just amazing. I love this song so much.

8Back Chat

An awesome song! I love this song so much! The best from Hot Space!

9You And I

Yet another great song, again totally underrated

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

11In Only Seven Days

I adore this song. Pure beauty.


This is a great 'calling out' song. Catchy tune and lyrics that, basically, say "Tell me how you really feel and don't aim for just the nerve". When I was younger I would play this song repetitively to give me strength when it came to affairs of the heart.
