Best Queen SongsQueen 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
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...
This is the best song ever. It has three awesome parts and has been in the charts at number 1 twice when they re-released it and it is just as recognisable as We Will Rock You and I think it's the best song ever released or played live. - queeniifanV 376 Comments
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!
I've heard that song before the Amazon Alexa commercial for Super Bowl LIII.V 145 Comments
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!
Get this at least second. - Userguy44V 117 Comments
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.

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 bass guitar is greatV 66 Comments
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 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
My personal favouriteV 90 Comments
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
Criminally underrated. Explosive song with vocals and an instrumental that'll blow your mind. Gunpowder and gelatine indeed.V 48 Comments
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!
This is a cool masterpiece, the beats, the lyrics, just ask vanilla iceV 58 Comments
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.
Love it just relates to meV 39 Comments
what a voice. what a voice.
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.
Every day in the morning. Unbeatable.V 33 Comments
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"
As someone once said,
If any other band did this song, it would be their masterpiece; their Bohemian Rhapsody.
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!
My favourite Queen album and this is a class moment from it!V 56 Comments
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...
If you want to take a liking to Queens start it from this I Want it NowV 37 Comments
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
Even gay people like fat bottomed girlsV 42 Comments
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.
Incredible work, absolutely unique! Killing vocals, fantastic!V 22 Comments
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.
One of the first queen songs to get number one in America should be far more higher - bat10V 17 Comments
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.
This song makes me cry every time...the fact that Queen's songs hit you right in the heartstrings and makes people relate and feel made them one of the greatest bands of all time...they will truly live on forever...V 25 Comments
I love this song! we sung it for choral night and we won out of Killer Queen, Dont stop me Now and Bohemian Rhapsody!
I agree this should be in the top 3. It's a classic.
This song is way better than 13th! Should be in their top 3.
A solid hit, one of their best, should be in Top Ten easily.V 22 Comments
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.
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
This is a great song, and it proves how lively 2 minutes and seventeen seconds can be. A few friends and I covered this one. Our guitarist had one hell of a fun time playing. This is a song to play when I feel hyper and pumped. LET’S GO!V 12 Comments
This one really sent the crowd in a frenzy. - FearlessFreep
I really expected this to be in the top 5, this is way out of place.
This song should be top 20 at least. It's an amazing work of music written by May
That beat, stuck in my head! Amazing song!V 5 Comments
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.
I simply love this song! Awesome chorus and singing, and also awesome lyrics and message in it! I actually understood this song and I felt pretty sad and like "yea" fred's right from this one. this should be in one of the top ten guys...
Cannot help but cry. Freddie's voice. The video. The meaning. So pure and heartfelt and Freddie's goodbye song. Utter perfection!
LovelyV 18 Comments
The thing I like about Queen is each of their songs tells a story thats greater than most blockbuster movies, without telling you EXACTLY whats gonna happen... youre allowed to like write your own story while listening and 39' is the perfect example of this and one of the most underrated song not just by Queen but by any band... - ozlacs
Simply the most beautiful and uplifting Brian May vocals/composition ever. Give it a listen, it's on A Night At The Opera. Should've been a single...
Phenomenal song! It has a great story behind it, and it's beautifully written. I have no idea how it's so unpopular.
Don't Stop Me Now and We Will Rock You are so overrated.
Sounds like a Beatles song in my opinion. I'm probably the only one who thinks that. - Userguy44V 10 Comments
Holy crap are you kidding me. THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING SONG EVER. There is no way to describe it.
One of the best songs of Queen ever! It's no way of getting bored with this song!
Freddie really puts himself to the limit.
Really? 31? This is the most amazing song ever.. This one should be right under Bohemian Rhapsody
I LOVE THIS ONE!V 11 Comments
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
Amazing songV 10 Comments
This is the first time I heard this song, and I loved it immediately. Its just wonderful. And his voice - it's so magical. I heard the live version - and the way he interacts with the audience - is so masterful. He had them in the palm of his hand.
Beautiful piano, beautiful guitar... It is really deep and inspiring. It is the most beautiful Queen ballad.
It is, perhaps, the only song by Queen that may works without Freddie's voice. I mean, it sounds spectacularly with those Chopin chords, Freddie's carisma makes it irresistible also Brian twelve-string guitar. Every time I listen to this at Wembley Stadium break in cry. There are -to be specifier NO EXIST- words to describe it. May be not the final song by this group, but surely the prettiest!
Sends me into a trance. Beautiful songV 33 Comments
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
How can this song not be in the top 100 Queen songs when it's one of the 50 greatest songs ever by anyone!
I WANT TO RIDE MY BICYCLE I WANT TO RIDE MY BIKE I WANT TO RIDE MY BICYCLE I WANT TO RIDE IT WHERE I LIKE!V 15 Comments
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.
I think this song should be a little higher up at least! I mean, have you people listened to it? It's awesome especially when Brian may makes his guitar sound live a violin in the beginning when Freddie is singing, "I can serenade and gently play from my heartstrings, ve a Valentino just for you. "
I don't know, I just love that song even the beat is catchy!
Good Old-Fashioned Love Boy is a highly underrated Queen song. It mixes a lot of great genres of the era and fully shows the group's true talent. Don't get me wrong, I love Bohemian Rhapsody and their other popular classics, but I prefer to explore a band's lesser known pieces.
My favourite Queen song. Masterful songwriting and takes me back to listening to this when I was a kid.V 19 Comments
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"
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. - KillerQueen1774V 9 Comments
What an epic song
Its just BRILLIANT!
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.
This song should be number 11 or in the top 10 - mneilan
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.
At least number 10... At least number ten...
Gimme fried chicken! Always makes me chuckle
Pure 80's grandiose soundtrack fun. But Brian May cutting loose on the guitar makes the song timeless.
One song, one choice, ha! #1V 4 Comments
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.
One of the best examples of how Queen was ahead of their time... unique, dynamic and catchy.
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.
Next time your pissed at anybody just put on the headphones and crank this all the way up! Guaranteed to feel better in no time.V 7 Comments
One of the first rock songs to use the finger tap guitar technique. Yes, even before Van Halen.
Best queen song by a mile
FIerce. This song made me wanna delve into deep Queen catalog.
I voteds for it because it's a top ten.V 5 Comments
Best. Queen. Song. Ever.
Has to be in the top ten greatest Queen songs ever.
QUEEN HAVE NEVER EVER EVER ROCKED SO MUCH.
After listening to all rated and underrated Queen songs for so many years, Hammer is my absolute favourite. Metal bands, this song shows how the hammer must fall. Quote: Best. Queen. Song. Ever.
Great rocking' tune, I play it all the time at the pool table. Good message too, brings you into the moment. LIVE for today!
What is this doing it at #34. This should be at least a top 5V 10 Comments
Keep yourself alive. Keep yourself alive. All you people. Keep yourself alive. Wish Freddie was able to do that.
So amazing, underrated. It should be up higher. The vocals are beautiful and I love when Roger sings.
Great song with an amazing beat
One of the greatest songs of queen... its not fair that its ranked so low in the ranking.V 3 Comments
The Invention of Speed Metal
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
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.
Overshadowed, a really good song
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.
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.
Song from Queen I. didn't have much commersial success but one of theire best effors behind Bohemian Rhapsody and Somebody to Love
One of queen's classics that should be higher - bat10V 5 Comments
Awesome song with a great guitar riff!
The only Queen song which proves that these guys were real Rockers at heart. Should be number one, but people are sheep...
One of their finest pieces
So much better live.V 3 Comments
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.
Deserves to be higher. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345
This is the cutest song ever i love it along with every other one of there songs lol queen is by far one of the best bands there was and probably ever will be! Freddie Mercury was a genius when it came to singing and writing the songs!Everyone knows the words to at least one of Queen's songs , im only 16 and i no the words to about 50 of them lol like i said there awsome and thers never gonna be another band like them!!!
just so underrated! beautiful song - sixsixone
The song with the most heart and soul. Even though the song was not for saying goodbye to the fans, it was a heartfelt goodbye and extremely sad knowing that freddie died shortly afterward
Surprised not top 5, in my opinion number 1.V 14 Comments
Definitely Queen's funkiest song, just listen to the bass solo, drum solo and guitar solo, this song is amazing!
Hey it should not be ranked #47, it is the coolest song of Queen with mind blowing funk. It should be among the top five. It is even better than "Another one bites the Dust". In fact it should be ranked after Bohemian Rhapsody.
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.
One of queen's hidden gems only true queen fans know this song but I think it should be a far more known song - bat10V 3 Comments
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.
The intro is just so powerful and soul touching. I have always liked all queens songs, but never really heard this song so much. One day
i was walking in the forrest hearing the intro, and I just realised how amazing it was!
A great song. A recent discovery for me, but I consider it a classic in my playlist. The guitar solo at the end always moves me. LISTEN TO IT NOW!
Sure... Friends will be friends.. awesome lyrics. wish it could at least reach the top 15 of their list.. SIMPLy AmazinG.
This is there most underrated song next to March of the Black Queen, should definitely be in the top 30s or above.
Man it's their most underrated songs lets take it higherV 5 Comments
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
OPEN FIRE! - ZwschuetteV 4 Comments
Queen goes punk rock. YEAHH BOY
Beautiful. Stunning piece of music and the lyrics aren't bad either
The evidence of Queen's greatness in all around the world. - malamJONES
Should be way higher. Amazing song.
An amazing songV 1 Comment
One of the sweetest Deacon's contribution on the band
The best version of the song! It's just so perfect! I knew It's a shame that no one knows about this version!
The most beautiful song queen ever made topped of by that lovely solo towards the end.
Always spurs me on when I feel down. Good old Deacs, a classic.V 3 Comments
Yeah, this is my favourite song. I will never understand why Bohemian rhapsody ended up being the most known queen song, while this one gets almost no recognition. I guess it must be because it came after BR... Oh well, let's enjoy it, we who can. Should definitely be in the top 10. This song shows what a mastermind John Deacon is. And Mercury. And May and Taylor. Most underrated song ever.
I don't know why these song isn't at the top 10, is like a "Bohemian Rhapsody" but more underrated.
A true classic rock ballad, beautifully music style changings during this song.
This song is god damn amazing.V 5 Comments
Freddie's piano riff automatically deserves a top ten spot!
Amazing song launching Queen as a quality band. Glam enough to fit the era; distinct by all means. Truly amazing.
Absolutely amazing song... One of their best hits, in my opionion.
A queen early classicV 9 Comments
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.
One of the lesser known but still great.V 8 Comments
