“We Will Rock You” – Eleven Of The Greatest Queen Songs

Eleven of their best and some less well known gems from one of the greatest bands ever...

Sue Murphy

Queen and Ben Elton’s fabulous We Will Rock You 10th Anniversary World Tour will open in Dublin tonight. Delivering 24 of the band’s outstanding hits, the show promises to deliver electrifying live performances once again. This got us thinking about our favourite Queen tracks in Her.ie towers…

1. Somebody to Love

Despite its huge operatic elements, Somebody to Love is perhaps one of the most heartbreaking tracks released by the band. Just listen to those lyrics…

2. Under Pressure

Queen. David Bowie. Song. Enough said.

3. Bohemian Rhapsody

Often considered the track that changed music videos, Bohemian Rhapsody is a classic. And Freddie recorded all of the backing vocals…

4. No One But You (Only the Good Die Young)

Get the tissues out…

5. Radio Ga Ga

This may have influenced someone we know…

6. Queen – A Kind of Magic

Is there a television advert this hasn’t been used on?

7. We Will Rock You

What song shall we play at this massive sport event that will be viewed the world over? Well, there is this Queen track we all know…

8. I Want to Break Free

Because this video is worth watching again. And again. And again…

9. Another One Bites the Dust

Kind of makes you want to tap everything around you…

10. You Don’t Fool Me

Quite a move away from the big operatic rock ballads, but somehow it all works.

11. The Show Must Go On

Primarily written by Brian May, The Show Must Go On sounds like it was literally written for the stage. This is the live version performed by Elton John for the Freddie Mercury tribute concert.
