Best Freddie Mercury (Not Queen) Songs

The Top Ten

1 In My Defence

Freddie was made in heaven.

I'm a very unemotional person but listening to Freddie sing this song moves me to tears every time. The beautifully lyrics are haunting, I feel it's the one he gave us to explain just how scared he was under his bravery.

Amazing song.

This is trully the best song Freddie wrote (on his solo album).Those words,music,and,of course,his voice.He could reach over 4 octaves,and we can hear that in that song.So,in my defense,this is his best solo song!

2 Barcelona

I think that Barcelona was just so moving. I know he and Miss Caball'e did a whole album together, but I believe that this song perfectly brought their two harmonies together - the very best of their voices, into a single element. Writing about a place that meant to much to the soprano, with Freddie's hopes and dreams of the entire album sewn into the fibres. Truely a monumental piece.

Wonderful and affectionate voice full of emotion, great and kinda sad song.

Something about this song

This song goes to your soul. Beautiful.

I absolutely adore Freddie's slow voice on this beautiful song. It's warm, silky, and so delectable. I even like that it's very different from Queen songs. R.I.P. my Persian Popinjay. "I still love you".

8 Living On My Own

Ahead of it's time in the 80's, it's like something you can hear in 2018. The perfect mid 90's remix of No More Brothers was perfectly set for the dance club scene.

11 The Great Pretender

There's something extra special about Freddie in this song. So much emotion, and it's genuine and from his heart. I believe he really felt this way about himself. I love him.

One of Freddie's demos from 1984. A wonderful song and a warm voice, pity it was never released on an album, it is truly a gem.
