How do you rate the top 5 songs from one of the biggest band from the 70’s and 80’s?

We are not sure who the “experts” are in this case, they might be music critics, or they might be musicians  or maybe both. The concept of being a music expert is a strange one, after all isn’t music a subjective thing? Who’s to say what is great and what is not? What matters is getting a consensus from a vast array of so called experts to agree on what they mostly think is great.

With this in mind, they were asked to judge all of Queen’s catalog and determine their top 5 songs

Queen is a British Rock band that was formed in London in 1970 by Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (guitar, vocals) and Roger Taylor (drums, vocals), later joined by John Deacon (bass).

If you saw the movie Bohemian Rhapsody, then you are familiar with the story of the band from their initial meet up with Freddie Mercury and how he instantly transformed a struggling bar band into what some experts consider to be one of the greatest of all time, certainly one of the biggest.

Queen’s first album came out in 1973

Their first hit was “Keep Yourself Alive”, which didn’t make the list of the top 5 but did set the stage for what was to come. Their second album, Queen II was released in 1974 and didn’t have any major hits, but later that same year they released Shear Heart Attack and scored their first major hit Killer Queen.

A Night At The Opera

Their 1975 album featured Bohemian Rhapsody  and You’re My Best Friend and launched the band into Super Stardom for the next decade.

We will Rock You!

News Of The World was released in 1977 and featured We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions which are in reality two different songs that are meshed together to form one epic song and definitely made the top 5 (spoiler alert)

Let’s take a look at the Top 5


  • 5. Under Pressure

    Released in 1981 and peaked at number one in the UK and was only number 29 here in the US, but it’s popularity continued to rise even with Vanilla Ice using it without credit on his hit Ice. Ice Baby
