The Miracle

OK, so the greatest songs by one band list is becoming something less of a novelty, since Rolling Stone has now added Queen’s 10 Greatest Songs. 

Not that I’m arguing against it.  Monster band.  Killer songs, as the list aptly shows.

All the biggies are there:  Killer Queen, The Show Must Go On, Under Pressure, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Somebody To Love, Fat Bottomed Girls, and of course, Bohemian Rhapsody.

Two things jump out at my about this list:
1) They had too many huge hits to cram into a top 10 list.  Missing in action, for
    example, are Radio Ga Ga, Tie Your Mother Down and everyone’s favourite
    sports arena song, We Will Rock You.  You’d add your own, no doubt.
2) The breadth of these guys was amazing.  Prog, metal, pop, rockabilly,
   Broadway  Wow.

We still miss you, Freddie.  You were one of our best friends.
