    Queen spanned 3 decades and produced a really diverse array of hit songs. What was your favorite Queen song?

    Definitely my favorite.

    Freddie was dying with Aids as he recorded it.

    There's alot of great Queen tunes, I've listened to most of their albums. Freddie is one of the best to ever do it, and Brian was a huge influence on me as a player, he's one of the best Rock guitarists ever.

    Don't Stop Me Now gives me chills, even after a million listens. I'd pick that, or Seven Seas of Rhye.

    I'm gonna be boring and say Bohemian Rhapsody. But honestly, it's a fantastic song.

    Can't listen to that tune without thinking of Paul Rudd performing it on Jimmy Fallon.

    There's so many good ones. I may lean more towards Under Pressure myself:

    Brian May FTW.

    I remember when The Game came out and everybody bought a copy.

    That is a very good song, it has just been overdone. A lot of people discovered (or rediscovered) Queen in the early 90's when that song was part of the Wayne's World soundtrack. It was that, and the movie Highlander that made me a Queen fan.

    Innuendo is underrated. Really dig that song.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll make sure I never watch that.
