I love Queen! Some of my favorites are:

Killer Queen
(You're my) Best Friend
Bohemian Rhapsody
Fat Bottomed Girls
We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions
and more,

but really didn't care for much of their stuff made after 1980. It just wasn't as good IMO. Still, a GREAT band and deserving of praise as one of the best ever.

Yes, Queen was great.

I remember last year on a Dutch holiday (Queen's Day) there was a free concert by Brian May and Roger Taylor in Amsterdam. Together with guest musicians they played for 45 minutes. The square they played was packed! IIRC, more than 30,000 people witnessed the event. I saw the whole concert on TV that night. It still gave me the shivers. Even though the vocals weren't that great and there were some musical misses. But then, nobody can touch Freddie's voice, as also the Freddie Tribute showed.
I only have Greatest Hits I , II and The Miracle. (My father has Innuendo and it is great to hear Freddie passed out on a musical high as it is a superb album).

Favourite songs?
We Will Rock You
Killer Queen
One Vision
...too many to mention...

C ya!

You have failed to mention Stone Cold Crazy... the best driving song ever. But, it does have the tendency of making you drive like the Dukes of Hazard...wahoo.

Freddie was the best rock singer ever. Mad genius.

I shocked everyone who knows my love for Queen by saying that I don't intend to go and see that "We Will Rock You" musical that's coming to Melbourne soon. I don't even know why I feel such aversion at the thought; after all I enjoyed the hell out of "Mamma Mia!". It's probably the thought of these songs performed by someone who is not Freddie.

ben elton was interviewed on "Rove" last night. He said he is very very happy with the ensemble they have gathered for the Australian production. I would really really really really love to go to the show..

but I won't .
"that would really be a breakthru..........oh yeah"
