7. Killer Queen (Queen)

The monster hit Bohemian rhapsody tends to overshadow all other Queen (image credit) songs. In fact, their earlier efforts warrant just as much attention, in particular the hit single Killer queen, taken from the 1974 album Sheer heart attack. It has all the good Queen ingredients, but lacks the bombastic approach that marred some of their later works, in particular in the eighties. Killer queen was their first hit single in Europe - the earlier Seven seas of rhye only charted in England.

Other songs by this act that would have qualified: Love of my life, You're my best friend, Another one bites the dust, Under pressure (with David Bowie), '39.
