|1. Sheer Heart Attack

3. Tie Your Mother Down
4. Death on Two Legs
|Hi Guys - I suppose this all depends on your definition of "heavy" - in terms of pure speed you're looking at "Stone Cold Crazy" (the first real 'thrash' song??)- however some stuff can be described as 'heavy' due to lyrical or musical conent/composition, and/or emotional impact (such as "The Show Must Go On", "Too Much Love Will Kill You").
I think "Father To Son" contains some of Queen's heaviest riffs and 'metal' type sections, but then also has some delicate piano parts too, so does this preclude it from being counted as 'heavy'??
"Flick Of The Wrist" and "Death On Two Legs" are also 'heavy' due to the key they are in and the menacing chord structure of the verses in each, but also contain loads of lush delicate harmonies and other intricacies. Also, don't forget "White Man", especially the end solo part.
Sorry to get all deep and involved, but I love these sort of discussions, because after the factual musical points are taken into consideration (like those I've mentioned), this type of thing really comes down to personal taste and interpretation, which essentially is the key to enjoying any type of music.
My god, doesn't that sound deep for someone who's 'only' a drummer??!!!
|To the above I would add Ride The Wild Wind and Scandal.|
|I Want It All rocks hard but is quite ornate too. One Vision would be one, definitely The Hitman and how about It's late? I mena, that's furious towards the end.|
|Here are my opinions of the Hardest/Heaviest (as opposed to rockiest) songs from each album.
Queen. Son & Daughter.
Queen 2. Ogre Battle.
Heart Attack. Stone Cold Crazy.
Opera. The Prophets Song.
Races. White Man.
NOTW. Its Late.
Jazz. FBGs (odd choice, not the rockiest but pips LMEY,DOT and just pips Mustapha as the heaviest).
The Game. Dragon Attack.
Flash. The Hero.
Hot Space. Put Out The Fire. (No real rivals but I do think that Dancer Rocks).
The Works. Tear It Up.
Magic. Gimme The Prize. (Freddies Heaviest ever vocal wins this for AKOM).
The Miracle. I Want It All. (Should have been WIAWI but it unfortunately dies after the opening riff).
Innuendo. The Hitman. (Possibly my least favourite Queen track).
|I'll have to say:
Stone Cold Crazy
|it was electric7
|i agree with son and daughter, and white man, definitely.|
|Tear It Up.
Stone Cold Crazy.
Tie Your Mother Down.
Ofcourse I now know all the words to them all. But those were the ones who took time to learn.
3-STONE COLD CRAZY
4-DEAD ON TIME
6-TEAR IT UP
7-SHEER HEART ATTACK
9-THE SHOW MUST GO ON
10-I WANT IT ALL
|Hi everybody: If we talk about "Heavy" I think the only pure heavy song is "Hitman", now, Stone cold crazy is really hard, but Probably from the 70´s I think "Son and daugther" is the Heviest. I think "Liar" is pretty noisy.
so resuming: 1- Hitman
2- Son and daugther
3- Stone cold crazy
5- Brighton Rock.
Sheer heart attack is not a "Heavy" Song...c´amon!
|the prophet's song has some very heavy moments in it. so does i'm in love with my car, but i wouldn't consider it the heaviest by a long shot. how about in the lap of the gods...revisited? heavy in a ballad sense.|
|it seems as if stone cold crazy has definately won|
|Sheer Heart Attack|
|Stone cold crazy.
The kind of song that almost breaks the neck.
And I like Metallica's version.
|great king rat and orge battle, stone cold crazy are queen at their heaviest.|
|Flick of the wrisk....??? Anybody
I like the part where Freddie says: Kick in the head!!!

|Tough one, as someone said earlier, it depends on your definition of heavy. In my mind "Stone Cold Crazy" and "Sheer Heart Attack" always stood out as Queen's heaviest songs. Another one I haven't seen mentioned yet is "Modenr Times Rock 'n Roll"|
|sheer heart attack, tie your mother down, stone cold crazy, gimme the prize, we will rock you.. is there anything else i missed?|
|hmmm I think gimme the prize.

|In Only Seven Days|
|Headlong - Great King Rat - Stone Cold Crazy - Sheer Heart Attack - Dead on Time - WWRY (fast) - Put Out the Fire - Tear It Up - Hammer to Fall - Gimme the Prize - I Want it All - Was it All Worth It - Innuendo - The Show Must Go On|
|My vote goes to "Son and daughter"|
|I'm going to stick my neck out and say Princess of the Universe. There is some heavy guitar and lyrics in there I think.|
|Now I think heavy - like metal-heavy - you know? xD
Gimme The Prize
Thinks it's those I see as the heaviest ;o)
|stone cold crazy|
|Princes of The Universe, White Man, Dead On Time, Father To Son to name a few|

|Well I enjoyed all the responses. However just clarify what I mean't cuz some people seemed to be confused. When I say Hardest/Heaviest I mean as in tempo and speed of the song. I forgot all about "The Hero" and "Gimme The Prize".......Those are very kick ass songs as well.|
