2 Don't Stop Me Now Don'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 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!

Great song - gdogcentaur64

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!

4 We are the Champions We 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.

Good Short Song - micahisthebest

5 We Will Rock You We 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.

As a naval pilot, I listen to it in my training missions to motivate me - Warwolf18

6 Somebody to Love Somebody 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

Why THIS isn't in first place?

7 Another One Bites the Dust Another 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.

I like this song - lovingicecreams

8 Killer Queen Killer 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

Yeah this is the best

9 I Want to Break Free I 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.

10 Under Pressure Under 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!

Definitely a top 5 song for them.

The Newcomers

? Good Company Good Company

This is one of Brian May's finest contributions to the band, in my opinion. It's on A Night at the Opera if you haven't heard it yet--and I do recommend it fully. It's achieved an old, Dixieland, jazz feel to it, without being tacky or annoying. Lovely, catchy little tune, but it tells a great story, a great lesson. A boy hears his father's lesson: "Take care of those you call your own, and keep good company" and attempts to follow the advice without really understanding it. By the end of his life, he's alone and fallen trap to the very thing his father warned him of. All the sound effects are done on the Doc's Red Special, he employs his lovely voice in this as well, so essentially, nearly everything here is Bri's work. Perhaps in that way, it should not be considered the best Queen song, but it is definitely one of their finer works.

God song I like it really much fredie love youu my favourite rock grou is queen I love it so muchh I want to meet them

? All Dead, All Dead All Dead, All Dead

If I close my eyes and listen to this I can imagine an entire lifetime passing by, it brings tears to my eyes. A heart-achingly beautiful song.

(Fun fact: Written by Brian May as a homage to his pet cat. )

I believe I am correct in saying that this is the best song about a cat ever

Really underrated. It is sad at first but it gets heartbreaking when you learn it was about Brian Mays cat.

The Contenders

11 Radio Ga Ga Radio 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.

Best song

12 The March of the Black Queen The 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!

I have to say this songs is my favorite queen song if I have one it truly is a masterpiece

13 I Want It All I 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...

It's got such good vocals from Freddie Mercury and great guitar work by Brian May. Such a great feel good tune, as I sure most of you will agree. It would be in my top 10, with fat bottomed girls, killer queen, radio gaga, bohemian rhapsody, another one bites the dust, I want to break free, we will rock you, we are the champions, don't stop me now, your my best friend. It is such a good tune that will put anyone in a good mood. 😜

14 Innuendo Innuendo

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"
- ravishu0930u0935u0940u0936chaw

If I were a king the music in this song would follow me wherever I went, sending fear right to the hearts of my opponents.

I just listened to this song for the first time and I would gladly put it in my top 10 favourite songs of all time

15 Who Wants to Live Forever? Who Wants to Live Forever?

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.

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.

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.

How is this not in the top ten? Beautiful, touching, inspiring... I'll put this one only behind Bohemian rhapsody, Show must go on and Innuendo, but not very far from them!

16 Fat Bottomed Girls Fat Bottomed Girls

Perfect mix of what Queen was before and after Jazz: hard rocking with great vocals but also hear the (almost) pop hooks Queen displayed in the 80s. First time I really remember hearing "Fat Bottomed Girls', I had somehow already knew and remembered hearing the riff. Oh, that fabulous and crunchy riff. Possible career highlight of Brian May, outside of a guitar solo.

Then Freddie's voice comes in gritty and catchy, a hard feat to manage, even for the other great rock vocalists, and completely owns it. Roger's contributions were just as great and memorable, as evidenced by me tapping my foot every time I hear this song. So catchy in fact, that several times I have woke up in the morning with it in my head! I don't know how, but I guess I was thinking about it while sleeping? Just shows how this fun tune never gets old and you'll literally be thinking of it from morning to night! Freddie of course is unbeatable, but on 'Fat Bottomed Girls' he really shines, not in terms ...more

FAT BOTTOMED GIRLS YOU MAKE THE rocking' WORLD GO ROUND

18th place? Seriously? This song definitely should be in the top 10

So catchy, regarding the lyrics and the epic guitar riffs. Not my favorite Queen song but it's definitely the one I listen to the most.

17 The Prophet's Song The 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.

Best song after bo rhap on, A night at the opera.

18 Crazy Little Thing Called Love Crazy Little Thing Called Love

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!

"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 one supposed to be in the best 5

I dunno, but there's something real special about this one.
