Queen’s Greatest Hits is the UK’s best-selling album ever and a recent 40th anniversary re-issue narrowly missed out on being UK No 1 for a fifth time this week. Nevertheless, Brian May is proud of the iconic tracks featured on the record that he made with Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor and John Deacon. And now the Queen guitarist has shared which song on the record-breaking album is his favourite.

Speaking with Absolute Radio, struggled to pick a song at first, before landing on one he penned himself.

The 73-year-old said: “Oh it’s very hard to say. What’s my favourite? I don’t know if I do have favourites.

“If I was being very…allowing myself to be partisan, probably would be We Will Rock You.

“Because it sort of says everything in a short time and it’s something that’s always worked for us.”

Brian continued: “Everybody’s jumping up and down, making a noise. And what they were doing was singing along.”

“In those days, it was really new I have to tell you. You just didn’t go to concerts where people sang to rock bands. But on this particular occasion, they didn’t stop. And when we went off stage they sang You’ll Never Walk Alone to us.”

The Queen guitarist went to sleep that night thinking: “What could an audience do? What could you ask them to do?”

In the end, he realised: “They’re all crammed in there, they can’t do much. But they can stamp their feet, they can clap their hands, and they can sing.”
