    Crazy Little Thing Called Love, and Fat Bottomed Girls.

    CLTCL is one of the best-engineered "live sounding" recordings of all time, IMHO.

    Queen fan here too.
    I like all of the obvious songs that most every Queen fan likes but, being a funk/rock guy, I have a real soft spot for the rhythm guitar in "Another one bites the dust".

    Shouldn't that guitar be red?

    Though I don't know for fact, Mr. May probably had a few of those in different colors.

    This is the best version of BrightonRock, from 1979’s Live Killers. The solo in it with the dual delay inspired me to come up with my own dual delay solo that I’ve been working on for the last two years.

    That guitar is the John Birch replica. Brian refused to take out his old lady into the freezing temperatures outside. He got mad at that guitar in 1982 because it wouldn’t hold tune, and he threw it off the stage. Making way for John Page to build him one exactly like the original.

    He also had a Strat, as you can see in this video of the song with my favorite Brian May solo to play.

    It's over played for a reason.


    Slightly different flavor

    Saw them live twice while in high school in London in the 70s. The first time, after they did the song, ONE really loud drunk kept singing "crazy little thing called love" over and over and over and over, so much that they performed it again!

    Queen fan reporting for duty! Killer Queen has always been a favorite. The first album I ever owned was Queen's Greatest Hits, so I'll go with that even though it technically may not count as a studio album.

    I'm a fan of Queen up to News, then they lost me. Many great songs along the way.

    Massive Queen fan here. It's tough to pick a favorite album as I love everything through The Game. After that they veered a little too much off the mark for me although there were individual bright spots along the way. If forced to choose a favorite, perhaps A Night at the Opera although I'll probably change my mind 5 minutes later.

    Here's a cover @StratMike10 and I did almost 5 years ago of Death on Two Legs

    I want to break free.

    Shame it destroyed their foray into America. They didn't like men dressed in ladies clothes.

    Can't think of a better front man than Freddie.

    Huge Queen fan as well - I love how Brian's sound is simultaneously rocking and regal.

    Favorites for me are, naturally, A Night At The Opera, but not for the obvious reason - I like a lot of the songs that rarely get airplay - songs like "Sweet Lady," "I'm In Love With My Car," and "'39."
    Innuendo is another fav - knowing that he was dying as he made it is pretty sobering - and yet it rocks HARD on multiple tracks.

    A really odd track that I like now more that I understand it is "The Fairy Feller's Masterstroke" off of Queen II - it's based on a painting by Richard Dadd:
