3 Stone Cold Crazy

Killer Queen definitely deserves number 1 but I'm voting for this. Thrash metal was created with this song. Love the fast paced vocals and the solo by May is ridiculously good. Killer Queen is a close second, Now I'm Here is third but this one is probably my favourite

Sleeping very soundly on a Saturday morning
I was dreaming I was Al Capone
There's a rumor going round
Gotta clear outta town
Yeah I'm smelling like a dry fish bone
Here come the law gonna break down the door
Never, never, never gonna take it any more
Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
Stone cold crazy, you know

This is the first Thrash Metal song this should be in the top 3 at least - christangrant

I love this one. And the cover from Metallica is also amazing!

4 Now I'm Here

Why this song is number six? It should be at least number tree.Great song

Why this song isn't number 2

5 Flick of the Wrist

This is Queen rocking out, Freddie's voice is on top form. I could listen to this song for ever.

what a power and talent, great mix of qualities

Fantastic chorus, great vocals, amazing musicianship.


6 In the Lap of the Gods... Revisited

Wonderful closing track of the brilliant album! More of that, it's stadium anthem with very cleverly written Mercury lyrics! Nearly as wonderful as this song is Tenement Funster! by Roger!

great 1 - PolishedRock

7 Tenement Funster
8 Lily of the Valley

Those lyrics are simply amazing... and the way Freddie delivers them is equally fantastic. The quote from Brian May below may be a clue as to why he sings with such emotion here.

From the wikipedia page:
The lyrics refer back to a song from a previous album, "Seven Seas of Rhye" from Queen II, with the line "messenger from Seven Seas has flown, to tell the King of Rhye he's lost his throne."

In a 1999 interview, Brian May told the British music magazine Mojo, "Freddie's stuff was so heavily cloaked, lyrically... But you could find out, just from little insights, that a lot of his private thoughts were in there, although a lot of the more meaningful stuff was not very accessible. Lily of the Valley was utterly heartfelt. It's about looking at his girlfriend and realising that his body needed to be somewhere else. It's a great piece of art, but it's the last song that would ever be a hit."

9 In the Lap of the Gods

Oh, I love this song... Really, all of them. I could really say this could be switched with numb 10, though.

THAT FALSETTOO! Beautiful! - DaringXx

10 Bring Back that Leroy Brown

Should have been #13

The Contenders

11 Misfire
12 Dear Friends

A Fantastic Ballad. Freddie's voice is on top form during this track. It's short, simple but also effective. - allqueen

So underrated, this was played at Freddies funeral you know?

13 She Makes Me
