List of Top 10 songs by Queen Band of all time
10. ‘Radio Ga Ga.’
It was inspired by Taylor’s son, and Taylor wrote the song. It was released in 1984 and became a great hit for the band in that year. The song talks about the usefulness of a radio with its various roles that it plays. The importance is music and also passing information to the people. It’s through the radio we get to listen to the news, we get entertained, educated and we get in touch with the bigger world. ‘And everything I had to know.’ ‘I heard it on my radio.’ ‘You gave them all those old time stars.’ ‘Through wars of worlds invaded by Mars.’ ‘You made us feel like we could fly.’
9. ‘The March of the Black Queen.’
This song has the progressive rock style, and it was released in 1974; Freddie Mercury wrote it. It is a complex song, though, which made it be underrated. The singer proposes to his lover and flatters her all through to win her. “You can be my sugar baby, you can be my honey Chile, yes.’ ‘A voice from behind me reminds me.’ ‘Spread out your wings, you are an angel.’ He tells her that when she gives in to his proposal, she will be surrendering to a great city of fireflies.
8. ‘Save Me.’
The song was inspired by a particular marriage that was short lived. It was released in 1979, and it was written by Brian May. The songs reveal how things start off well in a marriage, but things turn out to their worst later. “It started off so well. They said we made a perfect a pair. I clothed myself in your glory and your love. How I loved you.” Later, things started to become sour. They began realizing that they had been living a lie, and eventually their marriage broke up.
7. ‘It’s Late.’
This song was released in 1978, and it was written by Brian May. It is a song that depicts a love relationship that might not last for long. It seems that it is too late to enjoy and obviously, it was not the right time to love. “It’s late, and I’m bleeding deep inside. It’s late is it just my sickly pride. Too late even now the feeling seems to slip away. So-late-though am crying I can’t help but hear you say.” It’s just unfortunate that only one party is interested in the love relationship.
6. ‘We are the Champions.’
This song is a rock ballad, which was released in 1977. It is a great anthem which was written by Freddie Mercury. It talks about how champions pay their dues, and they never commit crime, and they never have time for losers. They do their best for the benefit of others including their friends. “I’ve paid my due. Time after time. I’ve done my sentence.But committed no crime. And bad mistakes.” It underscores significant committed of people who always look forward to being successful. This is one of the Queen Band Top 10 Songs of All Time.
5. ‘Under Pressure.’
‘Under Pressure’ was a collaboration of the Queen band and David Bowie, which adopted the glam rock music style. It was written by David Bowie, and it was released in 1981. The song highlights the kind of stress that one goes through when he is subjected to pressure. The character wishes that there could be some change so that people could experience some love. The world has become so old fashioned such that people no longer take care of themselves. “Insanity laughs under pressure we’re cracking. Can’t we give ourselves one more chance?”
4. ‘The Show Must Go On.’
The song is written by both Freddie Mercury and Brian May. The track released in late 1991 and early 1992.It talks about the fate of giving up: therefore, giving up is not a solution to challenges that one might be going through. It is always nice to give something else a chance instead of giving in to frustrations. ‘Whatever happens, I’ll leave it all to chance.’ Another heartache, another failed romance. On and on, does anybody know what we are living for?”
3. ‘I Want to Break Free.’
This song was released in 1984. It was written by John Deacon, and it became one of the best British rocks. It is a song about falling in love. The character wants to break free from cheating himself that he isn’t in love. He intends to live with his lover because that’s the only way that he can be satisfied. ‘I’ve fallen in love, yeah.’ ‘God knows, God knows I’ve fallen in love.’ ‘It’s strange, but it’s true.’ ‘I can’t get over the way you love me like you do.”
2. ‘Who Wants to Live Forever.’
‘Who Wants to Live Forever’ is a fantastic symphonic rock written by Brian May. Its tune features in the movie ‘Highlander’ in 1986, the same year that it was released. The song talks about the short life that we live. We don’t have enough time to fulfill our dreams and even experience sweet moments that are set aside for us. However, no one wants to live forever. ‘There’s no time for us, there’s no place for us.’ ‘What is this that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us.’
1. ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’
