Spread Your Wings is my ultimate fav. Deaky song.
He just has this beautiful way with words.. and honestly.. i am just completely in love with it.
And judging by some songs, i'd say he was a romantic kinda guy. How sweet.. but ALL those songs can't be about his wife can they? Like all the love songs. I know "You're my best friend" was but what about the 7 days song or "you and i"?? .. maybe he had a mystery lover tucked away somewhere in that little past of his.

He's my faveorite too. His songs are very likable and it is obvious that he works very hard on every one of them!
My faveorites are Spread Your Wings, I want to Break Free, and Who Needs You
Misfire, You and I and Another One Bites the Dust

He is a better songwriter than Roger Taylor (except Radio Ga Ga).
and foxxy_moron.... please stop interpreting things into John Deacon's songs. That's just plain ridiculous. Not every man has another girlfriend beside his wife, you know! Its the same shit like always posting: He is well and enjoying his retirement... How on earth do you all know what he really enjoys and what he thinks!!!!
Leave the man alone!
I on the other hand prefer Roger to John- nothing that John wrote matches THESE ARE THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES or BREAKTHRU... Apart from Spread Your Wings- that's a real masterpiece!!! And maybe YOU AND I- that's a very overlooked song. I agree- his songs are likable, but... nothing special, really... Just my opinion...
Well- let's not forget AOBTD- not my fav but it bloody worked!!!
ohhhhhhhhh well just have a go at me then.
whats wrong with being a fan huh?

He wrote not many songs. Not as many as Brian and Freddie and Roger. But every song he wrote is good. The other tree wrote some great songs but they also wrote bad songs.
I think my favorite Deaky's songs are: You And I, I Want To Break Free, Who Needs You, Misfire and You're My Best Friend.
Well there is one song that I don't like. And that's Spread Your Wings. But I don't hate it. I just don't like it.
The thing about these songs that I like is that they are all kinda fun and not heavy, just fun and happy songs. The lyrics may be about not happy things but his songs become happy.
That's what I love about them. I love happy songs :D

No, I certainly didn't say that!!! I think all four members have written good stuff and there are four or five Roger Taylor songs I admire very much: They are Breakthru, A Kind Of Magic, Ride The Wild Wind, Days Of Our Lives and Radio Ga Ga (my favourite Queen song!). Maybe also Action This Day.
Roger really started to write good songs in the 80s, but before most of his songs are very mediocre or pure crap (Fun It, Coming Soon, More Of That Jazz... ugh). Deaky however wrote very good songs from the beginning and his output is more constant in quality than Roger's. He had already three singles before Roger even had one (and that was only in the US). There is no John Deacon song I really dislike (even his first song "Misfire" is quite good), while many of Roger's tracks from the 70s and some by Brian are very average and at times outright boring.
I don't think there is a song that John wrote that I dont like. I mean they're all just so fresh, so real, so beautiful - Misfire, You're my best friend, You and I, Spread your wings, Who needs you, If you can't beat them, In only seven days, Need your loving tonight, Another one bites the dust, Back Chat, I want to break free, One year of love, etc etc...... If I had to pick only a few to call my favorites, i guess it would be Spread your wings (like a lot of people here - i think this is a shining song, like a diamond), In only 7 days, maybe Misfire... I also think Need your lovin tonight, AOBTD and I want to break free are so good too...
You lost me on that one.
I find Breakthru 1000x times superior to Modern Times Rock and Roll.
With just a few exceptions, there is one thing to call a song a Queen album where Freddie doesn't sing: ALBUM FILLER.
That's the biggest problem I have with the News Of The World Album......if you are in a band with Freddie Mercury....why don't we just go ahead and let him sing???
There are way too many songs on News Of The World that aren't Freddie sung.
