Best Queen Songs Written by Brian May


The Top Ten

1 The Show Must Go On

It's credit as Queen and it looks like Freddie wrote it, but it was Brian! And he wrote the music to

Yeah, Brian wrote music and lyrics. And Freddie was dying but sang it like a true vocal God. This song and Bohemian Rhapsody are both #1. - Metal_Treasure

Brian wrote this folks!

A classical and rock triumph. (Even got see deaks on a instrument other than bass guitar although it was a double bass)

Its iconic

The whole of Queen wrote The Show Must Go On so this is #1 and this is my favorite Brian May track

Incredibly powerful!

6 Fat Bottomed Girls

It's a good sounding song, but I honetly have no idea what was going on with Bri's head when he was writing this. - Misfire

I'm gonna guess that Brian had a swoon-able side too. Wink wink, nudge nudge. - MontyPython

You Make the rockin' world go round - I<3Queen

8 We Will Rock You

This masterpiece should be number 1! It is the most recognisable song in music!

I thought for sure this would be number one. Why is it not? This is the first Queen song I ever heard in my life (born in 1994). It's the second most identified song with Queen, after Bohemian Rhapsody. Easy number one.

Brian did write this song. I think your getting confused with we are the champions which Freddie, did indeed write.

Considering it was actually freddie mercury who wrote it... But it's still a cracking song anyways
