To say that Queen is a formidable musical force is an understatement. When Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon, and Roger Taylor got together, they created a sound that had never been heard before and still hasn’t been heard since. Because they have such a large back catalog, it is difficult to choose favorites beyond their staples. However, we present to you below these 5 lowkey-underrated songs from the group that only real fans admire. Check it out.
“Misfire” – Sheer Heart Attack (1974)
John Deacon contributed his debut song to the group, a guitar-driven number titled “Misfire.” Recorded on the glam rock album Sheer Heart Attack, “Misfire” stands out as an anomaly yet serves as evidence of the band’s versatility.
“More Of That Jazz” – Jazz (1978)
Roger Taylor penned “More Of That Jazz” as the Jazz album’s conclusion in 1978. The song’s bridge, which features samples from previous Queen songs, effectively functions as a greatest hits medley.
“Son And Daughter” – Queen (1973)
While crucial to understanding the Queen narrative, the song “Son and Daughter” is now mostly forgotten. Yet, it’s clear from this song that Queen was already producing memorable performances early in their existence.
“The Prophet’s Song” – A Night at the Opera (1975)
Although “Bohemian Rhapsody” will always be the signature song of A Night at the Opera, “The Prophet’s Song” by Brian May is a worthy contender. The song is significantly more extensive than the former, as it veers from prog rock to heavy metal throughout its length.
“Nevermore” – Queen II (1974)
Queen never wasted any time recording a bad song when they were at the top of their game. “Nevermore” is one of their shorter songs, yet it nevertheless manages to pack a profound narrative of grief, a magnificent three-part harmony, and an unusual piano style.
