|Okay wether The Game is or isnt your favourite album, what's your favourite songs from it?
This album isnt one of my favourites but it's still GREAT just like the others.
The reason being is, they lost abit of there rock n roll feel on this album and there next album to come which was Hot Space (I still like that album too).
So i was just wondering what's your best songs on this album.
Dragon Attack - The bass is great on here!
Rock It (Prime Jive) - Alot of stuff going on here, Roger and Freddie together makes it much better.
Dont Try Suicide - This song has a clear message to everyone, again the bass is good.
Sail Away Sweet Sister - This song is one of my faves of Brians, it's the best song on this album for me, i guess.
Coming Soon - I always thought this song was great for adverts, it's very catchy.

|I love 'sail away'
and 'rock it'is such an upbeat ''feelgood'' song.
I always listen to it before i go out or before a performance.
it psyches you up!
Just like 'don't stop me now'.
But that's not on that album....
|I actually love this album. I don't think I can pick one song as a favorite. They flow so well into one another that the album is like one never-ending song for me.
If I HAD to choose one.... hmmm... Dragon Attack. Or... Save Me. Or... Crazy Little Thing. Or...
I got through phases with albums.
One week all I'll listen to is (for example)
'Jazz' and then the next week i'll listen to 'The game' or 'innuendo'.
|I love Save Me and Sail Away Sweet Sister: amazing harmonies, wonderful bass, great guitar work, simple-but-nice piano & synths, nice drumming.
Those two are my favourites, I love Need Your Loving as well (the song, not so much the recording).
Never been particularly fond of Dragon Attack.
I like that song....
each to their own....
|I think The Game is a great album, but not my favorite. If i should name some songs I really like from this album it would be Dragon Attack, Another One Bites The Dust, Rock It, Sail Away Sweet Sister, Coming Soon and Save Me.
ok, as you see I picked many songs, and that is because the album is damn good, so are the songs.
|The Lost Queen
|- Save me
- Sail away sweet sister
- Don't try suicide
- Another one bites the dust
- Dragon attack
- Crazy littel thing called love
Never been very fond of 'Play the game', actually...

|1. Save Me
2. Play The Game (typical Freddie song, great !!!)
I also like Another One Bites the dust, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Sail Away Sweet Sister. the rest of the album isn't very good.
THE typical Queen album were the single releases are far better than the whole album.
|it was electric7
|I would say Dragon Attack...The Game and The Works are the only albums where I dont know more than 5 songs|

1. Another One Bites the Dust
2. Need Your Loving Tonight
3. Sail Away Sweet Sister
4. Play the Game
Of course Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Save Me are great songs, but I think I'm a bit worn out on them, so I left them off the list.

|Every track on this album is great in it's own right. This was my induction album, so I know it probably better than any others. Instead, I'd like to list what I don't like about THE GAME. Much shorter list:
1. PTG - The sound effects in the middle. Sounds like Asteroids or Galaxian. The ones at the top are okay though.
2. DA - The fact that Hollywood added the rap in the remix. The original is gold.
3. ABTD - Again the sound effects are a little too much. And I would have grabbed the cymbal on that last hit. End it even more abruptly.
4. NYLT - Too much effect on Freddie's voice? Then again, makes it sound more 50s be-bop.
5. CLTCL - The two breakdowns should have been more percussively different.
6. RI(PJ) - More Freddie. Roger was fine.
7. DTS - Could've had a real nice long funky guitar thingy during this. Maybe mimic some of Freddie's lines with it.
8. SASS - More effect on Brian's voice. Maybe a doubler during his lower register notes.
9. CS - Too short
10. SM - Maybe leave the electric off this solo. The acoustic solo was going so well.
|1.Crazy little thing called love
This is one of my two most favourite songs.I have no words to describe how lovely it is.And also Freddie looks like some kind of LEATHER DEITY^^
The guitar solo is great,and Freddie's voccalls power is incredible.
|Right the reason why i havent picked:
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Another One Bites The Dust
Play The Game
Is because, they are all on Greatest Hits 1 and i had that CD way before i got the actual albums and i got abit tired of listening to them. Dont get me wrong i still love them but i'm so used to hearing it always that I dont really like them alot as my faves.
Mircrowave wrote: 1. PTG - The sound effects in the middle. Sounds like Asteroids or Galaxian. The ones at the top are okay though.Absolutely agree. I actually love this song, but admit to fast-forwarding past this part... or at the least, looking around to make sure no one realizes I'm playing it.
|What a wonderful album, very nice one!
My favourite is impossible to choose, but i really like AOBTD and Rock it. I think they should have played Rock it more live!!
|Sorry but The Game for me is Queen's worst album. There is no out and out hard rock, save for Dragon Attack perhaps, which is ruined by Mack's soulless production. It still has its good moments though
PTG- I do like this song- it's too slow maybe which is why I prefer the faster live version but at least it has the pleasant Queen hallmarks.
DA- Probably the best song- again better live (says a lot about Mack!)but the guitar work is great and the percussion solo works well.
AOBTD- Well it was good funk music, I suppose- much better on stage. JD at his best.
NYLT- Trips over its own power chords- it's a MOR light rock song that a band like Queen should have avoided. John Deacon at his worst I am afraid.
CLTCL- A good single- a novelty piece- needs a piano though to give it some bottom end. the handclapping annoys me.
Rock it- Appalling song. How did this ever get on a Queen record. It's new wave hogwash, a horrid,underwhelming riff, dated synthesisers. it's the sound of a band trying to rock but who have forgotten how to.
DTS- Just as bad as Rock It- Very badly structured- annoying finger clicks and a fat bass (it ruined GDML as well!)More new wave garbage with some 1950s gestures thrown in.
SASS- A good ballad, yes. Sung beautifully and synthesisers are used tastefully. Thank goodness for Brian May's song writing
CS- Again, it's very limp, threadbare rock. Completely underwhelming. It would have been great if Roger had made it heavier like SHA but instead it does nothing for me. Too sparse.
SM- Over-rate din my view but still very good. Could have done with some bigger vocal harmonies and for me it gets boring after a while. Still the chorus is great and the acoustic work is stunning.
|The Game is a great introductory ablum, but I don't think it really stands up compared to many of their 70's albums...There isn't much flow; it feels more like a singles album than a bonafide LP.
I may be jaded; when I was a kid, I owned the Greatest Hits I and II for years before getting a single other album, so many of the tracks (Another One, Play the Game, Save Me, Crazy Little Thing) were absolutely killed for me, and I skipped them often, leaving me with much less.
|The Game... What a wonderful album!
The title track (Play the Game)
is a great love song...
Dragon Attack, Need Your Lovin' Tonight,
Rock It, they really rock!
Save Me and Sail Away are so sweet...
Coming Soon -what a intriguing rhytm!
just like Don't Try Suicide...
Bites The Dust and Crazy Little Thing -
what can I say? Two of the most famous Queen
singles... Is there anyone on Earth who
doesn't know 'em?
Wonderful album, guys!

i like most songs of this album, if i had to chose then...
-Save Me ...such a beautiful song
-Sail Away Sweet Sister.. love this brian song, so sweet
-Rock It..this song always made me laugh for some reason, really random song
|father to my son
|coming soon for me on dts 5.1 , then sail away sweet sister|
|Actually, most of it's great, but these are my favourites:
Don't Try Suicide
I still hate Coming Soon and Save Me, though.
|my 3rd favourite album....
favourites are - Dust, Play The Game, Dragon Attack, Crazy Little Thing, Save Me.
|Play The Game - decent opener, I really like how it amps up near the end
Dragon Attack - love the all-around guitar work by John and Brian
Another One Bites The Dust - decent song, but its not their best and I don't like the direction it led them in
Need Your Loving Tonight - this song rocks, love it. The guitar solo is one of my favorites
Crazy Little Thing Called Love - awesome tribute to rock and roll, the live version is even better
Rock It (Prime Jive) - further proving Roger was the weakest songwriter of the bunch, this song sucks
Don't try Suicide - meh
Sail Away Sweet Sister - ranks right up there with '39 as the best Brian song
Coming Soon - nothing special, no reaosn to listen twice
Save Me - great one, Brian was really on his game (no pun intended) for this album
really good album dragged down by its 2nd side, but they wouldn't be this good again till The Miracle.
|Freya is quietly judging you.
|The Game is a pretty good album I really like 'Sail Away Sweet Sister' it's probably in my top 5 Queen songs. The only song I don't like is 'Don't Try Suicide' otherwise I like the whole thing.|
|the game is a good album, I would says it's the last classic queen album until innuendo and MIH, but it's probably my 8th favorite behind the first six and innuendo, it's pretty even with jazz in my opinion. My favs are "play the game" 'dragon attack' and 'save me' my least favorite is 'comming soon.'|
|Another One Bites The Dust;)|
|Another One Bites The Dust;)|
|I've never actually seen or heard 'Rock it' Live....
I feel deprived....
That almost rhymes...
So does that...
I'll stop now.
If anyone has a link or sumthin so i can then feel free.
|*Sings, Sail Away Sweet Sister* xD|
|Play the game
Another one bites the dust
PLAY THE GAME
SAIL AWAY SWEET SISTER
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST
CRAZY LIL THANG CALLED LOVE
|Save Me because it reminds me of old Queen and not the new crap they were about to embark on.|
|I really like Play the Game... and the rest of them as well.|
|Depending on how I feel, I can go up and down the entire album and love it all. In fact, I can say that about the entire Queen discography, and anything else Freddie sung. But, Play the Game sung live at MK kicks ass!!! All time favorite after Somebody to Love from MK.|
|I agree, I love the studio version of "play the game", but the live version at MK is even better. totally kicks ass!|

hm... I would say this.
1. PLAY THE GAME
I don't like this very much, but it's okay. To me, it's a bit flat. But live it's way better.
2. DRAGON ATTACK
Mm, really like the bassline and solo. Good beat. Brian's solo a bit too long. It's just cool.
3. ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST
I love this song, best bass-line ever. I love the agression and power in Freddies voice.
4. NEED YOUR LOVING TONIGHT
This is just sweet, it's got so much lovely energy.
5. CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE
Mmm, wonderful, love the bass, the guitar, Freddie's voice, the video. Great, always cracks me up.
6. ROCK IT (PRIME JIVE)
Didn't really like this one at first, but the more I listen to it, the better it gets.
7. DON'T TRY SUICIDE
Ooo, I love it, it always makes me laugh, the lyrics always cracks me up, and then when the blues-part in the middle comes, I laugh so hard I can't breath. :)
8. SAIL AWAY SWEET SISTER
One of their most beautiful songs ever. It's perfect.
9. COMING SOON
I like this, but it isn't a song I listen to twice.
10. SAVE ME
This is to me flawless. Perfection.
A good album, with mixed songs and wonderful basslines. Got some of Queen's best.
|The Game? A very sexy album. I love it!|
|lol, this is very true.
This Album, i feel, is quite bass inspired in places but not as much as 'hot space'... not the best album that one....
(hot space i mean not the game)
