shouldnt; people will disagree but i say good old fashion lover boy was a waste of a single
news of the world
shouldnt; good singles
shouldve; maybe need your love tonight
shouldnt; all good singles
there the albums ive got at the moment
|I agree that Death on two legs should have been a single....but i disagree, I think Good ol' fashioned loverboy was NOT a waste of a single..thats an awesome song|
|i no its a good song but when there are other good songs on an album they should be released. u must agree its not like other queen singles for someone whos never herd queen before u wouldnt show them that.|
|stone cold crazy should have been a single!!! but i love now im here.
was love of my life ever a single???
|Tie Your Mother Down definitely should've been a single in America. It would've been perfect; I wonder why they chose Long Away instead.|

also Flick Of The Wrist WAS a single in the UK, double a-side with Killer Queen which got to #2 in 1974.
|"One Year Of Love" shouldn't have been put out as a single.
In fact, "One Year Of love" should have never been released at all. It should rot away in the Queenvaults and never come out.
|For the record....
Tie Your Mother Down was a single in the US, as was Need Your Lovin Tonight (both went nowhere). Not sure if Flick of the Wrist was a double 'A' in the US, but it was definitely the b side on the Killer Queen single.
Was always surprised Spread Your Wings didn't chart better in the UK and that it wasn't released as a single in the US...seemed very radio friendly at the time
|i think ride the wild wind- should,
invisible man- shoudnt
|'You And I' should've been a single. Same with 'Stone Cold Crazy', 'If You Can't Beat Them', 'Let Me Entertain You', and 'Dead On Time'.
'Body Language', no. 'Calling All Girls' would've been a good UK substitute, and maybe 'Life Is Real' or 'Put Out The Fire' (despite the duff lyrics).

Calling all Girls for Europe
Not Body Language
A Kind of Magic
Princes of the Universe as 5th Single
Was it all worth it instead of Scandal
Days of our lives seperately...it is funny that
they claim this to be a number 1 hit...the number
1 was BoRhap
Ride the Wild wind instead of I'm going slightly
Made in Heaven
Born to Love you and made in heaven would have
been worth a single release
|i love brighton rock, but i dont think a song with a 3 minute guitar solo in the middle would have made a good single.
calling all girls should have been a single, and i'd still keep body language, that song is somehow more popular in the us than it is in uk.
possibly an edited version of It's Late from notw, its got rock radio written all over it.
life is real, tie your mother down, the hero, the millionaire waltz, you take my breath away, death on two legs, don't try suicide, love of my life
body language, the invisible man, headlong, good old fashioned lover boy, friends wil be friends, play the game, breakthru

I agree about Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy, Friends Will Be Friends & Invisible Man, terrible choices !!
|Should - The Fairy Fellers Master-Stroke, The March Of The Black Queen,Ogre Battle
Shouldn't - Another One Bites The Dust with Wyclef Jean
|i think they should have released teo torriatte.. but thats just me. i think its a wonderful song|
|slightly mad 22
|jealousy should have been a single from jazz
life is real from hot space
sail away sweet sister from the game
princes of the universe and gimme the prize from akind of magic
was it all worth it from miracle
|I think Queen did a good job of choosing what songs shuold go out and which ones shouldn't, obviously there were a few misses here and there, but I think Queen left one off the Game album, that could have made it: Sail Away Sweet Sister.
And the reason it was probably left off was because of the two other single-Ballads off the same album (Play The Game & Save Me) and the added fact that Brian was on vocals

The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke? The March Of The Black Queen? No, those would've sunk Queen's reputation faster than the I Want To Break Free video did in 1984.
Play The Game was a horrible choice for a single - Need Your Loving Tonight would've been a better universal release. Keep Passing The Open Windows would've been big, too, if released as a single.
|Freddie should have sang Sail away sweet sister...I think it would have been one of Queen's top twenty signature songs had King Mercury had that one.|
|News Of The World
|Keep Passing The Open Windows as a single?? A Good song but no way should it have been a single, Tear It Up or Machines would have to be concidred before KPTOW.|
|life is real is one of my favourite queen songs, it just seems so personal to me. i think that it could have saved the hot space album if they had of released it as a single. i've always thought it was the only song that might have been about freddie's sexuality and life, (im not one of those people that thinks everything he wrote was about being gay)|
|Should: Death On Two Legs
Shouldn't: Another One Bites The Dust
brian_may_wannabe wrote: Should: Death On Two Legs Shouldn't: Another One Bites The DustUnless you mean the Wyclef Jean version of Bites The Dust, then you're right - it only gave Queen their second-biggest hit in America and has become universally regarded as one of their best singles of all times.
|STONE COLD CRAZY could work well as single
PLAY THE GAME I agree- terrible one...
DEATH ON TWO LEGS maybe...
And pity that double A side FLICK OF THE WRIST didn't get any airplay- it's an awesome thing!

|White or Black
|what singles were released from Queen II ?|
|Seven Seas Of Rhye was released from Queen II, I think that's it - aside from White Queen which was part of the EP release in 1977 with Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy etc.|

|DOTL and PotU should have.
It would definitely prove interresting
to see how LiR would have done as a single.
I love GOFL, but it reminds me too much of
an album track - Seaside Rendezvous, etc.
It could have been left as such.
