10 Queen Songs To Get You Off Your Seat And Onto Your Feet

They created so many songs it takes hours upon hours to listen to all of them.


Queen are a British rock band that formed in London in 1970. Their classic line-up was Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon. They are a rock icon and are making a comeback in this and the next generation because of the hit movie Bohemian Rhapsody. They created so many songs it takes hours upon hours to listen to all of them. Here is a compiled list of the best and most unique Queen jams.

1. "Bohemian Rhapsody" 


This song is a classic. If you don't jam to it when it comes on the radio then you are an alien. The 5:55-long song has so many layers and WTF moments that you can't help but sing along.

2. "Radio Gaga"

This song has a message that skims the surface. The beat keeps the song light hearted, but if you actually listen to the lyrics your world just might change. "Don't become some background noise" indeed.

3. "Bicycle Race"

This song is so weird that you have to love it. Listen to it a couple of times and it will be stuck on your head for days, trust me. This is one of those songs that you just have to hear to believe.

4. "Somebody to Love"


If you are like me, the first time you heard this song was when Anne Hathaway graced our screens as Ella in "Ella Enchanted." And while she killed it, nothing compares to Freddie Mercury. Don't believe me? Go ahead and look it up on YouTube, I dare you.

5. "I Want It All"


This is a song to make you motivated. The first beat passes through your speakers and you are ready to go. You can't help but sing along.

6. "I Want to Break Free"


The song itself is good, so good. But you won't appreciate it as much as you can until you have seen the music video for it. Once you do you will,

a) scream and

b) join the Rogerina bandwagon. It's a guarantee.

7. "We Will Rock You"/"We Are The Champions"


These songs are put together in this list much like they are when played on the radio. These songs will grace stadiums until the end of time. You can't help but clap along as you listen. It is a classic.

8. "Killer Queen"


This song is a masterpiece. There are no other words to describe it. The lyrics and beat are so catchy you can listen to it over and over again, I speak from experience.

9. "The Great Pretender"


This song is amazing because of the fact that it perfectly describes Freddie Mercury. While on stage he put on a facade to hide his insecurities in such a way that only a few people were able to know the real him.

10. "The Show Must Go On"


This is another song that can get you off your butt and moving to what needs to be done. It is such a beautiful song that speaks so much truth for the men in Queen, especially in the last few years of Freddie's life.
