Can you tell us what some of these great songs are? I can't think of them. Good Vibrations? Anything else?

You just proved my case better than I could, Ninman. Most of these songs aren't great. Bohemian Rhaphosdy, yes. Everything else listed? Nope.

Oh, yes. That middling piece of work. I think remembered another song of theirs earlier in the day as well, but I've already forgotten it. Not surprising, since they weren't a particularly distinguished band.

Hell, just be thankful solo artists aren't included here, dParis, because Neil Young has at least twice as many great songs as Queen and Kansas put together. He'd be way up there.
