Best Queen Songs Written by John Deacon

The Top Ten
1 Spread Your Wings Spread Your Wings Cover Art

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

My personal favourite queen song along with Somebody to Love

One of my top 3 underrated Queen songs

2 Another One Bites the Dust Another One Bites the Dust Cover Art

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...

I love this one. Very simple, but powerful enough to become masterpiece as it is now.

This song always gets stuck in my head

They mixed rock and disco together!

3 I Want to Break Free I Want to Break Free Cover Art

I don't want to argue a lot, because listening to music ( especially if it's not in my langurice is for me more like tasting a cake than reading a book. But "I Want to Break Free" is probably the song I have enjoyed most in my life. Not only among Deacon's songs, not only among Queen's songs, but among all songs

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.

There isn't any human being in the hall world, who doesn't love this song. It's everbody's favourite, everybody can sing the full song perfectly.

4 You're My Best Friend You're My Best Friend Cover Art

Wrote it for his wife, as they got married this year. HUGE hit. Everyone knows this song.

I love this song! It speaks to my heart!

Cute song. :3

5 One Year of Love One Year of Love Cover Art

One of John Deacon's masterpieces, most people think Freddie wrote the song with him, but no it's all John's work. I think the song they are getting it mixed with is Pain To Close To Pleasure.

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.

6 My Life Has Been Saved My Life Has Been Saved Cover Art

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.

7 You and I You and I Cover Art

Yet another great song, again totally underrated

Way too 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.


8 Who Needs You Who Needs You Cover Art

Just amazing. I love this song so much.

9 Back Chat Back Chat Cover Art

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

10 Need Your Loving Tonight Need Your Loving Tonight Cover Art

Queen's most underrated song

Very good

The Contenders
11 In Only Seven Days In Only Seven Days Cover Art

I adore this song. Pure beauty.

12 Misfire Misfire Cover Art

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.

13 Friends Will Be Friends Friends Will Be Friends Cover Art
14 Rain Must Fall Rain Must Fall Cover Art

A very underrated song by John Deacon, and could have been the last single released from the Miracle Album

16 If You Can't Beat Them If You Can't Beat Them Cover Art
17 Cool Cat Cool Cat Cover Art

The best one

18 Stone Cold Crazy Stone Cold Crazy Cover Art

Awesome transitions

Catchy and relaxing

Written by Brian May!
