220px-Queen Greatest Hits

The Original Cover Art

Greatest Hits I is a compilation album by Queen, released on November 2 1981. It's overall a good album with a couple of downsides songwise. I'll start from the beginning:

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is a rather mediocre and overrated song. It gets good around the hard rock ending. I like the no chorus thing but it's just an endless sorta bit of filler. I give it a 3/5 That's just my opinion though.

WE WILL ROCK YOU is a Brian May classic, but not so interesting until you get to the solo (GREAT). I give it a 4/5.

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS is a Freddie Mercury hit and the first Queen song I ever cared about (Or Knew). I just wish for a solo, but the licks are great. 4/5.

ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST is another great song from the quiet and shy John Deacon! I'd give it a 4/5, but the sound effects push it up (A Lot). I'll give it 5/5!

Ahhh KILLER QUEEN just rocks (So Regal). I've nothing left to say about it really. The solo is so great (Thanks, Brian) and the lyrics are so intertwined. It just rocks. 5/5.

My favorite Gospel song is SOMEBODY TO LOVE (Not Justin Bieber). Freddie hits some high notes too. The solo's not as good as Killer Queen but still rocks! 4/5.

Awesome riff and melody on FAT BOTTOMED GIRLS. Bad concept though so I'm not really usally able to listen to this one. 3/5.

By brother's least favorite Queen song is BICYCLE RACE (I Like It). Cool bike bells and awesome guitar right after them. 4/5.

One of my favorites is YOU'RE MY BEST FRIEND (By John Deacon To His Wife). it's rather jazzy for a band that some people classify as hard rock. The guitar and keyboard go great together and the riff on the keyboard makes the song what it is. 5/5.

CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE is a bit of rockabilly by Freddie so it's sorta strange with the rest of the album. I played this song live once. It really rocked. 5/5 (Love The Solo).

NOW I"M HERE sounds like nothing ever before because of the echo. 4/5.

PLAY THE GAME has such an experimental beginning then such amazing piano. This Freddie Ballad deserves a 5/5.

SEVEN SEAS OF RHYE has no chorus and does it better than Bohemian Rhapsody. It's too good for 3/5 though! 4/5!

BODY LANGUAGE just sticks in every way. It's too much A Cappella and just has too much profanity. 3/5 for the bassline.

SAVE ME's piano might be better than Play The Game's piano. 4/5.

DON'T STOP ME NOW might be my favorite song EVER! It's my favorite Queen song for sure. It ROCKS! 5/5.

GOOD OLD FASHIONED LOVER BOY is not a song I know very well, but listening to it now, I can tell it was a hit. Or should have been. It's a good song. 4/5!

I WANT TO BREAK FREE is an early 80's Queen hit and the last song on the album. It also has my favorite music video ever! You should really watch it! I like the guitar and the Melody is good! 4/5!!!


Over all this album just rocks and I hope you buy it! The Average rating of this album was 3.94!!!
