Queen is one of those bands that will always be played on the radio no matter how old their songs are. Whenever I make the six-hour drive home from school, the majority of my time in the car is spent listening to Queen.
I was lucky enough to attend a show on the Queen + Adam Lambert Tour at the United Center in Chicago last summer. I know I say this after literally every concert I go to... but this was the best concert EVER. Even though Freddie Mercury himself wasn't there, he was there.
After looking back at my concert videos and pictures, I decided to make a playlist of my top 15 Queen songs.
1. Somebody to Love
This is probably the best Queen song of all time honestly.
2. Bohemian Rhapsody
If you don't know all of the words to this one, you are FAKE.
3. Don't Stop Me Now
This will instantly put you in a good mood.
4. We Are the Champions
It's inevitable that this song will be played at every championship game of every sport ever.
5. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
If you're wondering why this song screams Elvis, it's because Freddie Mercury wrote it as a tribute to him.
6. Fat Bottomed Girls
This song is pretty much a classy version of Baby Got Back.
7. We Will Rock You
It's impossible to read the title of this song and not hear the beat.
8. Killer Queen
This one doesn't have as much of a rock vibe like the others, but it's still a favorite.
9. Brighton Rock
This one may be 90% guitar solo but if you ever need something to get you amped up, this is it.
10. You're My Best Friend
11. Another One Bites the Dust
I've never realized how dark this song is until right now.
12. Under Pressure
Queen and David Bowie??? What more could you ask for?
13. Stone Cold Crazy
Freddie Mercury actually played this song before Queen was created.
14. Hammer to Fall
This was one of the perfect opening songs for the Queen + Adam Lambert Tour.
15. Bicycle Race
This one grew on me. Nothing was better than seeing Adam Lambert roll out on stage on a huge bicycle to sing this song.
Didn't put this in my top 15 but it deserved to be talked about. It's way slower than a typical Queen song but it's still so good. I wouldn't put it on your car ride playlist unless you're in the mood to cry a little.
