Best Queen Songs

Queen are a seminal English rock band, formed in 1970 in London by John Deacon, Brian May, Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor. Britain's most successful band of the past three decades, the band rose to prominence during the mid-to-late 1970s and still retain a large international fan base. This is a list of Queen's all time greatest songs.

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody

The Perfect Queen song, along with Somebody to love and march of the black Queen

There is no competition.
"So you think you can stop me and spit in my eye?! "

This song expresses a difference of music style and it's great...

In my opinion, its one of the greatest, of not the greatest songs ever written.

2 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!

It's better then Bohemian Rhapsody!
It just makes you want to dance, it's short, sweet, bite-sized.
Unlike Bohemian Rhapsody, which is 5-6 MINUTES LONG JESUS CHRIST

3 The 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!

I cry every time

4 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 record proves that Freddie could sing in any style he chose. The man was a genius.

This song is totally sweet. I mean have you heard the beat 'cause it is rocking'. GO QUEEN!

The beat to it is really good and enjoyable.

5 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.

It is the best song ever

6 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.

I totally love this song

7 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! )

The way that the band created those awesome 100 channel vocal arrays and piano chords, along with the godly solo makes this one of the best queen songs ever.

Song Is brilliant in my case, shame glee had to go and ruin it. - PotBellyPup

8 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!

Lets be honest when you hear this you pretend it's about you and sometimes you may lip syn it and dance to it.

This song is killer

KiIler Queen is the best song

9 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!

Greatest song ever made. No brainer.

10 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.

One of my favorites, I love the video

The Contenders

11 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.

Amazing. It just shows how important the radio was to them

12 Innuendo

Same concept as Bohemian Rhapsody, except this time it isn't overplayed. - RichardWright

This is a masterpiece of human culture and music genius.
Shame not to be among the top three Queen songs.


I think this song is powerfully

13 The March of the Black Queen

Bohemian Rhapsody and The March Of The Black Queen is two of the best songs of all time!

Great lyrics, marvellous melody

Big sister to Bohemian Rhapsody.

This is my favorite queen song. Early Queen is the best

14 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...

This song is their best song, no doubt. A tragedy they didn't make more hardrock.

15 The Prophet's Song

An underrated masterpiece

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.

The echo part is a bit weird though, not that it's a bad thing. This is still a great song in my opinion. - Misfire

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.

16 Crazy Little Thing Called Love

A song that makes you want to dance

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!

"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.

17 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

I feel offended...

Even gay people like fat bottomed girls

Girls with big bottoms are cool.Really cool

18 Who Wants to Live Forever?

The ultimate song and so appropriate for Freddie

I love this song so much

I cried buckets first time I heard this. So underrated, yet so beautiful. Hits you in the heart. Such a powerful song. Wait... why am I still talking when I could be listening to the GREATEST Queen song EVER! hint, hint, this one! VOTE NOW! Peace dudes!

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.

19 You're My Best Friend

This song is the most sweetest thing I have ever heard. The lyrics to this song are so sweet.

Come on this is way better than I want to break free

John deacon is a cutieee this song is adorable

19th? Seriously?

20 Stone Cold Crazy

This is what started some big 80s bands out there. Very underrated. I voted for it because I wanted to put that out there. I was gonna vote for something else, but I figured this should be higher on the list. Anyway, I only know 1 other kid who knows and loves this song. Thanks Ray.
Long live Queen. Long live Freddie Mercury. Freddie Mercury, we all miss you greatly and wish you were with us today. RIP.

A super fast song that really gets you in the dancing mood I love this song - bat10

The more I scrolled the more I thought I had accidentally glazed over this song and it was actually up way higher. Then I found this... ALL THE WAY DOWN AT 72?!?! Seriously, this is a masterpiece of a song that essentially crafted the thrash metal genre and would go on to help birth bands such as Metallica! A legendary song and definitely much more deserving a spot much higher than 72

Holy crap, what the heck is this song doing down here. This is one of Queen's greatest songs! One of the first thrash metal songs ever. And you have to love that sexy guitar solo. This list is just stone cold crazy

21 Tie Your Mother Down

That beat, stuck in my head! Amazing song!

This one really sent the crowd in a frenzy. - FearlessFreep

This song rocks! - Metarock

I really expected this to be in the top 5, this is way out of place.

22 Too Much Love Will Kill You

Awesome song

Perfectly heartbreaking

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.

Such an underrated song. To me, it’s my favorite Queen song and certainly belongs in the top 10. The lyrics are beautifully heartbreaking and you can hear Freddie singing from the heart in this one. Not too mention the lyrics in this song are so true

23 A Kind of Magic

Greet song it’s so over looked

The heralding of a new age of unity of consciousness and harmony - 'is this the kind of magic, that ca be only one? "

PS a great song live is Another One Bites The Dust - the bass line made everyone dance - and that was just a tribute been band.

What an epic song
Only freddie can do the live concerts and make them sound so good

Great lyrics. Fine melody. Anything Freddie put his magical vocals to is great. Loved Queen back in the day. Still love 'em just as much today. I wish we had smart phones back when I saw them in concert.

24 '39

Very creative and catchy, Brian is a genius

Very meaningful and such a stunning song

Deep meaning and in the live version Roger plays the tambourine and says "YEE HAH" and its adorable.

It's good

25 Love of My Life


Beautifully heartbreaking

This should be #1

What is this doing at 25?! I get Queen has a ton of great songs but this is easily too 5. One of the most beaut songs ever written.

26 Bicycle Race

A song that deserves to be played at max volume

Amazing vocals - carverwhitt

This song is just so sweet!

This song is amazing ya its not the best one but still it is great to listen to this song inspires me listen to it sometime queen is the best band ever

27 One Vision

Better than Radio GaGa. - GehennaTheSecond

Fried chicken

Its impossible to choose, but this one has been stuck in my head so I'all say One Vision.

At least number 10... At least number ten...

28 Hammer to Fall

This is my favourite Queen song and I don't get how da hell it's so underrated
Fantastic, catchy, beautiful

I think Hammer To Fall should be top 5 at least. It's a really powerful song and very catchy

So good

What is this doing it at #34. This should be at least a top 5

29 Princes of the Universe

The Highlander


Great song! Impossible not to get pumped up after listening to this song. Should be higher rated!

Holy crap are you kidding me. THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING SONG EVER. There is no way to describe it.

30 Save Me

It is a very good song. At least top 20!

Oh... What a wonderful Queen ballad song! My favourite song with Bohemian Rhapsody, Don't Stop Me Now. And my top 3 is Save Me. It should be least at top 15! - gyungmin

Involve Freddie's real life experience about a close friend who's relationship has ended

Best Queen song in my eyes, even better than Bohemian Rhapsody, Another one Bites the Dust, Killer Queen and other classic Queen songs

31 Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy

MY FAVORITE (apart from Seaside rendezvous)

THIS IS MY FAVORITE. It's really underrated though. It should be a lot higher. I can't pick just one favorite part because I love all of it. - BlueJazz13

I love every song by Queen, especially Somebody to Love, but at this point this gets my vote. They mix the classic music, and the rock kinda style. The singing is so perfect, I just love it. And this is exactly how a lot of us "boys" feel.

"HEY BOY" gives me chills, I wish I could travel back in time and give Freddie the cure for aids, or bring him back to life today.


32 Brighton Rock

Love Freddie's falsetto, brian's guitar solo, and intro of the song. I would of voted for Killer Queen but I decided to choose this. - KillerQueen1774

Love Bohemian Rhapsody, of course, but if I could take only one Queen track this would be it

Brian's song here has me under. I had gotten new songs on my iPod and I never used to listen to this then I clicked play and just... Wow this has an amazing solo, everything about it is just amazing.

I don't like the extremely long guitar solo, but I love the rest!
The change between falsetto and head voice is just awesome:

"still some maGIC IN THE AIR"

33 Now I'm Here

When they rocked!

love it

So much better live.

The guitar the vocals. Everything about this song is amazing it's the best queen song ever. why isn't it number one. VOTE VOTE VOTE!

34 Keep Yourself Alive

I am listening to this song as I write and this song should be at least in the top 10. I especially love the 'Live At The Rainbow' version from the BoRhap movie. It's just a masterpiece!

Top 5

This song is top 10! That guitar riff is amazing!

So amazing, underrated. It should be up higher. The vocals are beautiful and I love when Roger sings.

35 Death On Two Legs

Definitely top ten one of the greatest musically songs ever

This song is one of the few songs by queen that utilizes the instrumental side of music. Nearly all other queen songs are strictly vocal. The beat and composition of this song is revolutionary and seems to me like a Cheap Trick inspiration.

Where do I begin? The song is literally a showcase of Queen's many traits; the precarious layering and dubbing of melodies, vocals, and musical sound effects. Freddie's fantastic voice and attitude: in this song one can literally feel his seething disdain. Brian's wailing, yet operatic, orchestral guitar. Deacon playing an impecabbly intonated bassline, with Taylor's smashingly thunderous drum fills intertwined. The grand piano adding an air of royalty, depth, and power. It's hard to choose a great Queen song; they're all incredibly amazing. Queen is in a league of their own.

One of the best examples of how Queen was ahead of their time... unique, dynamic and catchy.

36 It's Late

I voteds for it because it's a top ten.

Highly underrated song. Should have been more popular.

This deserves to be in the top 10 for sure. - Metarock

One of the first rock songs to use the finger tap guitar technique. Yes, even before Van Halen.

37 Seven Seas of Rhye

Very nice piece of music

Fear me lord and lady commenters

Freddie's piano riff automatically deserves a top ten spot!

A queen early classic

38 Ogre Battle

The Invention of Speed Metal

It's hard to choose the top10 queen's songs, but I really like this song and I think Ogre Battle, Liar and One vision deserve a better positioning.

While most people who have heard (or not heard any song) of Queen will choose their favorite queen song " Bohemian Rhapsody".But PERSONALLY I like this song more than Bohemian Rhapsody. - zxm

Overshadowed, a really good song

39 Liar

The live version of this is my everything
you have rogers drum solo at the start which is absolutely amazing then you have Deacy come in with his "ALL DAY LONG's" then you have the incredible vocals of Freddie then the amazing guitar solo's of Brian that ties in with Deacy's bass solo then ended with everything you could ever ask for

Whoa, only 61?! Liar is at least top 10, no joke! It was the crown Jewel of Queen I and their best live song for their first few years of touring. Queen's first two albums clearly are seriously overlooked if Liar can't be considered one of their best.

One of queen's classics that should be higher - bat10

By far my favorite song from Queen! Very unique for its time. Although the lyrics are really strange, Brian May's intro will really rock your socks! This should be higher up on the list. It's one of those songs that make Queen unique.

40 These Are the Days of Our Lives

Definitely one of Roger's best songs. Its heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time, and it reminds us about those days that we should never forget. Freddie's last videoclip, and probably one of my favourites, just a plain video with no grand effects, just them. If you like it, you should definitely watch the rendition that George Michael did in the memorial concert

I'm suprised this is so low, I thought it would of been top 15 at least

When I look and I find I still love it

Love this song. Freddie is pouring his heart out to his fans letting us know he will always love us. Brian's solo is awesome.

41 Dragon Attack

Yes, this is definitely one of my favorites!

One of queen's hidden gems only true queen fans know this song but I think it should be a far more known song - bat10

So nasty. I mean, wow. It's just a skull-rattling tune that obliterates all other songs. How this isn't at the top is criminal. There's more to quality than popularity.

Definitely Queen's funkiest song, just listen to the bass solo, drum solo and guitar solo, this song is amazing!

42 Great King Rat

While this isn't the best queen song, it's my favorite. a shame not as many people have heard it

This is really awesome song, I love it very much. This is the one of the most innovative song of greatest band queen. And by the way, what a speed of Freddie Mercury with a very clear pronouns...

My favourite by a zillion miles. Freddie and Brian push themselves and their unique talent, to the absolute limit.

43 Breakthru

Breakthru is definitely one of their best songs! I really love it.. this song gives you a boost! :-)

This song should easily be in the top 10! Great bass riff and brilliant beat with Freddie's vocals making it into something special

Underrated Queen... Enjoyed watching Freddie be Freddie in the video before his health started deteriorating.

My favorite song, over bohemian rhapsody, and don't stop me now! - t-man

44 Flash

FLASH!... AAHHAHH!... SAVIOR OF THE UNIVERSE! This song is cool, heard it in Ted

Amazing song with epic rock beat and four crazy guitar solos one of queens best songs and one of their best

This song is ridiculously underrated

I always liked it. Great song

45 Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together)

Beautiful meaning

A beautiful song. Should be in top 20.


An amazing song

46 Spread Your Wings

One of the sweetest Deacon's contribution on the band

The most beautiful song queen ever made topped of by that lovely solo towards the end.

The best version of the song! It's just so perfect! I knew It's a shame that no one knows about this version!

One of the perfect song that I ever heard.

47 The Millionaire Waltz

The greatest waltz song ever

This song almost makes me go to sleep - carverwhitt

At the end, it feels like you listened to 4 songs

It's like the child of Bohemian Rhapsody. - Misfire

48 It's a Hard Life

Lyrics are indescribable. Freddie was such a genius and writing deep inside from his heart.

When Freddie sings the title I can't help but think that the melody sounds a lot like the line "This is your life" in Play the Game. Is that just me? - Misfire

Freddie wrote deep inside from his heart.
"But I'll always live for tomorrow
I'll look back on myself and say I did it for love"
Pure genius

I would put this excellent track at number 4 - after We are the Champions, then Bohemian Rhapsody ; then Love of my Life. Number 5 is "jealousy". All piano led tunes written by Freddie. - Shugs

49 White Queen (As It Began)

Extremely under-rated Queen track. Especially the Odeon Convert version.
Queen shows off pure emotional and atmospheric brilliance with this piece.

Beautiful emotional vocals, amaaazing piano solo on the Odeon Hammersmith live version!

One of the most enchanting, yet at the same time heart-breaking, songs ever written. Mercury's vocals are absolutely magical.

One of the best Queen songs ever... Shame that the song was never released as a single or feature any piano on the album version which would have made it an awesome song... One of the best.

50 Made In Heaven

I just listened to the sample and was like what it was so good.

It was weird; I was listening to this song and then time started speeding up as I watched all my friends around me be killed until time collapsed and reset in a new universe where everything was different but people STILL slept on this song. Top 5 Queen AT LEAST

What a awesome song. Shame nobody knows about it.

Definitely one of my top 10 favorite songs. It transmits the message that everything that happen in your life has a value and we should always stay optimistic because even if something terrible happens, better days will still come.
