It's so interesing the to imagine what the unperformed Queen tracks would haved sounded like had they been played live. Down below are my five selections.
You and I (from A.D.A.T.R.)
Sail away sweet sister (The Game)
Las Palabras De Amor (H.S.)
Princes of the Universe (A.K.O.M.)
I want it all (The Miracle)
I defiantly agree with your list, although I would add:
The Hitman (From Innuendo)
Gimme The Prize (From AKOM)
Man on the Prowl (From The Works)
Misfire (I think that would be fun to play live from SHA)
Fight From The Inside (From NOTW)
And Pretty Much anything from The Miracle
I think MOTBQ would have been impossible to perform live,unless backing tapes were used during the complex middle vocal sections,like on Bo Rhap.I would have like to add Scandal and Its A Beautiful day to the list.
1.) Las Palabras De Amor
2.) I Want It All
3.) Gimme The Prize (Kurgan's Theme)
4.) Was It All Worth It
5.) The Show Must Go On
6.) Those Were The Days of our Lives
7.) Machines (Back to Humans)
8.) Mother Love
9.) The Hitman
10.) Let Me Live
Mad The Swine
My Fairy King
The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke
Funny How Love Is
Las Palabras de Amor
Man on the Prowl
Keep Passing the Open Windows
One Year of Love
Gimme the Prize
Princes of the Universe
Pain Is So Close to Pleasure
I Want It All
Was It All Worth It
Don't Try So Hard
The Show Must Go On
Made in Heaven
I Was Born to Love You
A Winter's Tale
There is always someone in threads like this that just lists everything they can think of rather than what they themselves actually wants. Has the opposite effect of what they are trying to achieve and just makes them look a bit stupid.
I heard a tribute band sing Dancer once and I thought it sounded great live. I have always strangely loved the song and I would love to have heard Freddie sing that live. Was it All Worth it? That would have been a great song to put in between WWRY and WATC at the end of a show.

Yes, in this topic I am the stupid one
I'd like to actually have heard (or maybe even still hear) Brian and Roger try some more of the Made In Heaven songs... like the way they did IWBTLY in Japan accousticaly.
I reckon they'd do a nice Heaven For Everyone or A Winters Tale in the same way. Just the two of them and a guitar. Give them both a fresh sound. IWBTLY was great when they did it this way together.
I'd liked to have heard Queen do The Miracle and maybe even have incorporated Man On The Prowl after the covers they did in Magic tour. So Mary Lou, Baby I don't care, tutti frutti and then MOTP as there own personal throwback to that era.
It's obvious that some songs never made to live because of the high notes. Of course Freddie lowered them a lot in many songs but songs like Funny How Love Is wouldn't have worked at all without the demanding high range. Same goes f.e. Princes of Universe and Coming Soon I suppose.
But staying in the topic I would like have heard "falsetto songs" like Cool Cat or Pain Is So Close to Pleasure, because the falsetto singing was something he Freddie kept minimum in live concerts through their career.
