Im not a big Queen fan myself, but the fact that so far noone has mentioned The Show must go on doesn't really speak in favour of you guys' taste.
For me it's a tossup between that and Who wants to live forever.

Who Wants To Live Forever is great but I prefer I prefer Don't Stop Me Now to The Show Must Go On

Favorite is impossible. Often depends on mood. It'd probably be easier to list the ones I listen to least.

Among many favorites: Killer Queen, Under Pressure, I'm Going Slightly Mad. The Show Must Go On is really good too. I partly like that one because it seemed a deliberate choice given his condition.

Bohemian Rhapsody is OK, but not on my short list of favorites. How it was created was more interesting than the song itself.

:D It was the theme-song for our church bicycling group. The song isn't the best but the irony is delicious.

"Get on that bike and ride!"

That song is the best. I'm sorry you don't appreciate the style, but its a classic.

I'm just not a Queen fan. I like them, don't get me wrong, but if I was stuck on a desert island with only one album to listen to, it would be something different.

Probably the fact that we played "Fat-bottom girls, you make the rockin' world go round" in church."

Also, American churches are not known to be bastions of acceptance of homosexuality, so the Freddie Mercury connection is also something.

Though I wasn't thinking of it being played IN church.

Yeah but to counter that, if there is one thing that the US is known for more than anything else it is obesity and fat bottoms

They still haven't got over that? It's not the 70s

:D

I wonder why no one has mentioned Innuendo, yet.
Since my musical education is somewhat lacking, I can't say which one is best in terms of composing and stuff. But I like Innuendo best.
Bohemian Rhapsody is overhyped IMO. I do like it, though.

I mentioned two from the album. I like most of it. Ride the Wild Wind, These Are the Days of Our Lives, Delilah are also very good. I like most of their work, so limited what I mentioned to only a few items.
