My ten in the order of how they came to mind

 

1. It's Late (Album: News of The World). Great example of how Queen rock when they go into the instrumental section. Has to be played loud.

2. Another One Bites The Dust. (Album: The Game)

3. Save Me (Album: The Game)

4. I Want To Break Free (Album: The Works. (not the single version on Greatest Hits 2 but the album version, different takes))

5. Mother Love (Album: Made In Heaven) (Freddies last recorded vocal)

6. Too Much Love Will Kill You. (Album: Made In Heaven)

7. Hammer To Fall (Album: The Works)

8. Leaving Home Ain't Easy (Album: Jazz)

9. Fat Bottomed Girls (Album: Jazz)

10. Jealousy (Album: Jazz)

 

Others of note:

Love Of My Life

Somebody To Love

One Year Of Love

Innuendo

Seaside Rendezvous (Queen take the piss brilliantly)

Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon

Under Pressure

Is This The World We Created

 

Am slowly discovering more of their early albums, March of The Black Queen is quite a song but havent heard it enough yet.

Out of curiosity meanmistermustard, why do you prefer the album version of I Want To Break Free? I find the single version with the synth intro to be more interesting.

 

I have yet to listen to some albums completely so there could be some missing songs. In no particular order:

- The Millionaire Waltz: Very classical ballet/waltz feeling to this one, plus some good hard rocking in the bridge.

- The Show Must Go On: Great chord progression and amazing vocals

- Innuendo: Gives a good ominous feeling, plus the flamenco section that seems to come out of nowhere.

- Bicycle Race: Chords are all over the place. Sort of reminds me of I'm Only Sleeping, that sort of "I don't really care about anything" feeling.

- Who Wants To Live Forever: I'm a sucker for songs with a full orchestra.

- All Dead, All Dead: Such a sad/empty feeling. Great piano and guitar flourish in the bridge.

- '39: Not really sure what makes this song awesome, it just is.

- Seven Seas Of Rhye: Good old rock, plus great piano riff.

- Bohemian Rhapsody: Sort of a cop out, but the opera section is awesome.

- The Prophet's Song: Good old prog rock, plus a lesson in harmonies in the middle section.

 

Picking just 10 songs is hard. Some honourable mentions:

- The Miracle: Great chord progressions and arrangement.

- Long Away: Classic Brian

- Flash

- Sail Away Sweet Sister/Leaving Home Ain't Easy: I seem to think of these songs together for some reason.

- Under Pressure: Bass/Drum solo/piano/vocals.

- Dead On Time: Very frantic rock.

- One Vision: Synth section and jam section (not sure what to call it) make this. Also Fried Chicken.

- Scandal: Great vocals/riff.

- It's Late: Just great rock.

- Most songs by John Deacon, greatly underrated: You're My Best Friend, You And I, In Only Seven Days

 

Choices are subject to change.
