2Don't Stop Me Now
I absolutely love this song - Freddie is in his finest form on this track and you can tell he absolutely loves singing it - he freaking ROCKS it! Lyrically excellent, ahead of it's time (like most Queen songs), timeless and as fresh today as the day the track was laid down - Freddie was a true genius, best voice in the business and this shows it in all it's glory - miss you every day Freddie, so glad you can visit me every time I hear your voice... RIP to the best EVER
This song is amazing. The tune is great, the lyrics are amazing and Freddy's voice is top notch in this epic song. Definetely one of the best ever.
This is my #2 favorite by Queen forever. I can't get sick of it! Amazing vocals, makes you want to dance, awesome instrument stuff, it's mind blowing!
[Newest]Love this song. Makes me feel very happy and reminds me of good nites out with friends singing this song jumping around going crazy. Such a feel good tune

3The Show Must Go On
In my opinion Freddie Mercury's greatest vocals is portrayed in this song. So I vote this up
The best song ever is so powerfull you feel and understand the suffering he have but then he try to calm you but is hard to lose someone so talented. we miss you freddy...
Absolutely awesome song! The combination of Freddie's vocals, Brian's Guitar and Roger's drums is just epic!
[Newest]The meaning of the lyrics is powerful.

4We Will Rock You
Nobody, and I mean nobody can sing this except Freddie
I think it has a cool beat and good lyrics.
The classic stadium chant. Between the lyrics and the drums- you'll be sure to be pumped up.
[Newest]This song is awesome

5We Are the Champions
Amazing power ballad - the way Freddie sings it is with all his feeling. It is an very underrated song and I just adore it

idolangelx13

This one isn't made for less than top 3! It should be competing for first place with Bohemian Rhapsody! What a Genius Freddie was! We are the champions, my friends, and we'll keep on fighting till the end! We are the champions! We are the champions! No time for losers because we are the champions! At the world
A Very underrated song, people see it as too much of a novelty song.
[Newest]The best song ever in music period.

6Somebody to Love
I love Queen! This is my favorite by them, they are so epic!

jescafish

Freddie's greatest vocal performance! (And that's saying a lot! )
Song Is brilliant in my case, shame glee had to go and ruin it.

PotBellyPup

[Newest]It's a good song for the love

7Another One Bites the Dust
Coolest beat ever. Such a great song.

"And another one gone, and another one gone, and another one bites the dust!.. "
This song is totally sweet. I mean have you heard the beat 'cause it is rocking'. GO QUEEN!
This record proves that Freddie could sing in any style he chose. The man was a genius.
[Newest]I love this song it had a great rock beat

8Killer Queen
Killer queen is a very good song I really like the high notes along with it it flows well that way. Although I do like we are the champions killer queen is my favorite!
It's just great: It has a really good beat and I love to hear it over and over again! Bohemian Rapsody is great too, although I'll be on "Killer Queen"'s side now.
The turning point of Queen was this great song... Just listen to it
[Newest]Very intelligent lyrics and a well played guitar solo

9I Want to Break Free
Amazing song. It's so great, but so underrated. The video was just as a joke, but I adore it anyway!
It is obvious why this song is the best Queen song - because it was written non other than John Deacon. He may have not written that many songs, but most of them were huge!
Excellent song of those years. I believe that this song has the value throughout the years. I am very proud that an Indian has sang this song. With great remembrance I am very proud the great man has given an excellent song.
[Newest]The video is pretty funny to be honest!


10Under Pressure
I love this song it's so catchy and the lyrics are epic. They have so much meaning and I listen to this song all the time. I just hate that vanilla ice messed it up with his very similar song ice ice baby. Now when most people hear the opening they think that I'm playing ice ice baby
I get in love with it when I first time heard it, I love the lyric which is so encouraging. the rhythm is so great that I can say I will never get bore with it even listen to it every single minute.
It's the best song that I've ever heard in my life. The music world miss you too Freddy!
[Newest]I love this one so much. This one should be on the top. "Why can't we give love, give love, give love..." Damn.

The Contenders

11I Want It All
If you like Queen, that's because you're have an excellent taste in music!
If you don't Like it, you can start with this song!

rock2metal

This song is masterpiece - very well written, produced and performed. "I Want It All" is my personal favorite song by Queen but I do love everything from this legendary band

Irina2932

This is an amazin' song. Can't everyone see that! This song should be higher up...
[Newest]The best by Queen

12Radio Ga Ga
There's a key change in there that makes me glad to be alive!
Musical genius! Wonderful composition and lyrics, a true work of art.
A great song to clap with. Fantstic music and lyrics. Really good live. Epic.
[Newest]Had to vote for this because it was too low on the list. This is a great song with a great message

13The March of the Black Queen
This, as part of the quad of songs on Queen II, Fairy Feller's Masterstroke/Nevermore/March Of The Black Queen/Funny How Love Is simply is the best work Queen ever did for me... they show them at their very peak as a hard rock band, and showed glimpses of future songs like Bo Rap in it's layered operatic vocals and instruments... sublime...
Very underrated song from a very underrated album. It's a shame that Bohemian Rhapsody is so well known and this is so under appreciated. :/
Probably one of the best song ever written by Queen... A Masterpiece of inspiration, with smart arrangements and wonderful vocals and backings. Bohemian kinda put some shadow of this song which is nevertheless as good as Rhapsody, and much darker too. Queen rules!
[Newest]An underrated gem that's for sure! Bohemian Rhapsody came second, March of the Black Queen came first! Bohemian Rhapsody is my favorite song, but come on! This song is awesome too!

14Innuendo
This is a masterpiece of human culture and music genius.
Shame not to be among the top three Queen songs.
Haunting Epic, I just love it. Saying that I do love all Queen songs, I am sure I'm like many Queen fans, who can't choose a favorite song.
But I love this song, its weird, its like jumping into a bi-polar opera. Its also a song where if you've heard it once or a million times, your still like... I'd love to know what this bizarre song is about?
love the lyrics "You can be anything you want to be
Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be"

[Newest]This song, along with The Prophet's Song, The Show Must Go On, and The March Of the Black Queen are real and true contenders to be considered better than Bohemian Rhapsody. Along with Bohemian Rhapsody these four songs should be in the first four positions. I grew up with Queen and these songs break barriers in brilliance that very few bands have ever matched. Innuendo is Queen's progressive rock at it's finest. Amazing and thought provoking!

15Who Wants to Live Forever?
Ummm... duh? This song is so dramatic and lyrically awesome! Not to mention the delivery is totally rocking'! Listen to it and you will understand the wonders that this song portrays.
With the exception of the greatest rock and roll song of all time (it does not need to be named) this is Queen's best song!

I don't like to use the word epic too many times in one month, but I think it needs to happen for this.
I can't believe how perfect this song is. It's unbelievably incredible. Maybe not only the best song I have ever listened from Queen but also the best song I have ever listened ever in my entire life.
[Newest]This song is my favorite. Funny thing is I'm listening to it while I'm typing this. The way Freddie sings it is just captivating and really nice and has that true statement in it but seriously the song is too good to be out of top 10 come on! If you vote any other song (with the exception of a few others) there is something messed up with your brain

16The Prophet's Song
THIS is the first power metal song ever and everything is superb especially Brian May's guitar work and the canon section in the middle with overdubbed vocals by Freddie.
It seems like nobody ever knows about this song! This, and Liar, Innuendo beat Bohemian Rhapsody by miles! Starts calmly, and proceeds to the vocal section and finally the epic ending. Number one Queen song, and it's what makes A Night at the Opera the best Queen album.
Most unique, absolutely classic. Vocals achieves peak notes.
[Newest]I think its pretty boring

17Fat Bottomed Girls
18th place? Seriously? This song definitely should be in the top 10
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE this song! I've always been bigger and the 1st time I heard this and really listened to the words I was very self conscious because well you know how kids can be. But when I heard that song that's when my self esteem started to rise! YAY for them!
This song deserves top ten. Without a doubt. Its been my all time queen favourite. I had first listened to it when I was a kid and it was my favourite then too.
[Newest]16?! This should be in the top 5!

18Crazy Little Thing Called Love
"Ready freddie? "
catchy, old school rock, and a great person in the vocals... a recipe for success!
Too many good songs to pick. So I just picked the first that came to mind.
This is so unfair! How can you Possibly pick 'the best Queen song'? They're ALL THE BEST!
I love all the famous ones, but I absolutely Adore the lesser known ones, the ones familiar to only avid Queen fans (like me and you). With their eclectic mix, there's something for everyone, whether it's soft, or fast and furious, or everything in between, Queen's got it all. From the loveliness of Love Of My Life, Nevermore, Lily Of The Valley, & Save Me to the fury of Stone Cold Crazy, Dead On Time, and We Will Rock You (fast version! ); I love them all.
That's why Queen is So much more than their hits! Their hidden gems are a treasure trove of ecstasy!
Freddie's voice is so magnificent, and his passion so fierce, that anything he sings is my favorite! He is the most stunningly awesome performer ever to grace the Earth!
QUEEN ROCKS & RULES!
[Newest]Fun song. Love watching Queen perform it at Wembley, 1986.

19You're My Best Friend
I love this song! we sung it for choral night and we won out of Killer Queen, Dont stop me Now and Bohemian Rhapsody!
I agree this should be in the top 3. It's a classic.
This song is way better than 13th! Should be in their top 3.
[Newest]If this isn't the most beautiful love song of all times and it doesn't touch your heart I don't what's wrong with you..

20Too Much Love Will Kill You
A song straight from Freddie's heart. This is the song that made me fall in love with Queen. It's amazing how Freddie touches hearts. He sings his soul out in this one.
I simply love this song! Awesome chorus and singing, and also awesome lyrics and message in it! I actually understood this song and I felt pretty sad and like "yea" fred's right from this one. this should be in one of the top ten guys...
What an incredably great voice did he have! The way he sings this chorus makes me chiver!
[Newest]Really? This is my favorite queen song 19th? Wow just wow
