Very underrated song from a very underrated album. It's a shame that Bohemian Rhapsody is so well known and this is so under appreciated. :/
This, as part of the quad of songs on Queen II, Fairy Feller's Masterstroke/Nevermore/March Of The Black Queen/Funny How Love Is simply is the best work Queen ever did for me... they show them at their very peak as a hard rock band, and showed glimpses of future songs like Bo Rap in it's layered operatic vocals and instruments... sublime...
Probably one of the best song ever written by Queen... A Masterpiece of inspiration, with smart arrangements and wonderful vocals and backings. Bohemian kinda put some shadow of this song which is nevertheless as good as Rhapsody, and much darker too. Queen rules!More comments about The March of the Black QueenListen to sample
A song straight from Freddie's heart. This is the song that made me fall in love with Queen. It's amazing how Freddie touches hearts. He sings his soul out in this one.
What an incredably great voice did he have! The way he sings this chorus makes me chiver!
I simply love this song! Awesome chorus and singing, and also awesome lyrics and message in it! I actually understood this song and I felt pretty sad and lyk "yea" fred's right from this one. this should be in one of the top ten guys...More comments about Too Much Love Will Kill YouListen to sample

It is a very good song. At least top 20!
Beautiful and touching. And so very true.
I hang my head and I advertise
A soul for sale or rent
I have no heart, I'm cold inside
I have no real intent
Involve Freddie's real life experience about a close friend who's relationship has endedListen to sample
One of the first rock songs to use the finger tap guitar technique. Yes, even before Van Halen.Listen to sample
Freddie wrote deep inside from his heart.
"But I'll always live for tomorrow
I'll look back on myself and say I did it for love"
I love this song! I should be higher for sure, canĀ't believe it's not even top 20!
I remember listening to it, nonstop when I was a little girl, brings great memories back.
A great song. A recent discovery for me, but I consider it a classic in my playlist. The guitar solo at the end always moves me. LISTEN TO IT NOW!
Another classic. Great guitar. A really nice ballad with great lyrics.Listen to sample
what a voice. what a voice.Listen to sample
What a sweet Brian May composition...simply beautiful.Listen to sample
I love every song by Queen, especially Somebody to Love, but at this point this gets my vote. They mix the classic music, and the rock kinda style. The singing is so perfect, I just love it. And this is exactly how a lot of us "boys" feel.
"HEY BOY" gives me chills, I wish I could travel back in time and give Freddie the cure for aids, or bring him back to life today.
If you check my iPod's top 25 most played, this is number 1. Whenever I think of this song, I hear Freddie singing the beginning. Wonderful and well written.
I love it because the lyrics are awesome. Sing this, I can dim the lights and sing you songs full of sad things
We can do the tango just for two
I can serenade and gently play on your heart strings
Be your valentino just for you
Ooh love - ooh loverboy
What're you doing' tonight, hey boy
Set my alarm, turn on my charm
That's because I'm a good old-fashioned lover boy
Ooh let me feel your heartbeat (Grow faster, faster)
Ooh ooh can you feel my love heat
Come on and sit on my hot-seat of love
And tell me how do you feel right after-all
I'd like for you and I to go romancing
Say the word - your wish is my command
Ooh love - ooh loverboy
What're you doing' tonight, hey boy
Write my letter
Feel much better
And use my fancy patter on the telephone
When I'm not with you
I think of you always
(I miss those long hot summer nights)
I miss you
When I'm not with you
Think of me always
Love you - love you
Hey boy where do you get it from
Hey boy where did you go?
I learned my passion in the good old
Fashioned school of loverboys
Dining at the Ritz we'll meet at nine precisely
One two three four five six seven eight nine o' clock
I will pay the bill, you taste the wine
Driving back in style, in my saloon will do quite nicely
Just take me back to yours that will be fine (Come on and get it)
Ooh love, (There he goes again just like a good old-fashioned lover boy)
What're you doing' tonight, hey boy
Everything's all right
Just hold on tight
That's because I'm a good old-fashioned fashioned lover boy
Beautiful and optimistic song
Why this song isn't in top 20?
Because they only like queen before freddie died.
Can't you see that? The guitar solo?
This song is very underrated, but it's a truely amazing song. I encourage anyone to listen to it. It's a great early Queen song, it has great lyrics, good music, and it's an all around great song. Early Queen songs are very underrated, but they're great, if you want to hear the best of early Queen, start here.Listen to sample
a true classic rock ballad, beautifully music style changings during this song.
This song is mind blowingly good! How can you not love it. It has everything you want and need in a perfect song. AmazingListen to sample
great song, you cannot beat this one if you were looking for a good rock song with a danceable beet

"My Fairy King" is the best Queen-song, I think. Just great!
I've listened a LOT to Queen since 1992...
Such an AMAZING song. Roger's high falsettos are just beyond epic! Easily one of Queen's most underrated songs, as is with all the songs from the Queen and Queen II albums. :/Listen to sample
Defiently Queen's funkiest song, just listen to the bass solo, drum solo and guitar solo, this song is amazing!
Hey it should not be ranked #47, it is the coolest song of Queen with mind blowing funk. It should be among the top five. It is even better than "Another one bites the Dust". In fact it should be ranked after Bohemian Rhapsody.
Breakthru is definitely one of their best songs! I really love it.. this song gives you a boost! :-)
Shocked this song scores so lowly! Definitely one of their best songs, brilliant beat ^^ vocals by Freddie!Listen to sample
Il love this song! The guitar solo is so amazing!
The music, the voice! I love this song
Freddie's piano riff automatically deserves a top ten spot!
Amazing song launching Queen as a quality band. Glam enough to fit the era; distinct by all means. Truly amazing.
Absolutely amazing song... One of their best hits, in my opionion.
Even though in album version I think that there are other better songs from Queen, this one on live stage is just SICK! Seriously: Montreal 81, Sao Paulo 81, go take a look. Super vocals.Listen to sample
What a awesome song. Shame nobody knows about it.
Definitely in the top 10. Absolutely fantastic. How do you fit all their songs in the top 10. There are too many great ones to choose from. The Greatest band in the world. Too bad I'll never see them live.
Love most of their songs, however, I believe this is queens true master piece. Just give it a listen if you havn't heard it before.Listen to sample
Dude if you listen to it you realise how awesome it is
One of their very best songs from the 80s

WHHOHHO ROGER TAYLOR. YOUR THE BEST DRUMMER EVER. HAVE A GOOD STRONG VOICE AND TONE. SO YEAH NOTHING ELSE REALLY TO SAY, BUT YEAH BEST DRUMMER IN THE WORLD.
A Roger Taylor song (not Freddie) but still amazing. Really nice piano and drums- and of course a great chorus.
This really is such a fantastic Queen song, but I find that it's so under-rated, a wonderful song that reminds me so much of those summer days spent by the sea and for me it's a perfect reflection of my childhood.Listen to sample

How did this utter brilliance rank so low?
the haunting guitar and vocals and the fairy tale like lyrics (Brian may you genius)
It seems that with each version of this song live or otherwise I listen to, it quickly becomes my new favorite.
LONG LIVE QUEEN!
Incredible song and beauty words. The change at the end is simply awesome. For me, this song deserves to be in top 20.
It has a nice beat to it, and the lyrics are so meaningful.Listen to sample
The Who meets Led Zeppelin and Queen become Progressive Rock in this Heavy Classic Rock epicListen to sample
I think this song deserves to be placed much higher in the list as this is easily amongst the best songs on 'A Night at the Opera' and certainly shouldn't be overlooked for its short length. Delightfully whimsical and one of my personal favourite Queen songs, I very highly recommend it.Listen to sample
God song I like it really much fredie love youu my favourite rock grou is queen I love it so muchh I want to meet them
This is one of Brian May's finest contributions to the band, in my opinion. It's on A Night at the Opera if you haven't heard it yet--and I do recommend it fully. It's achieved an old, Dixieland, jazz feel to it, without being tacky or annoying. Lovely, catchy little tune, but it tells a great story, a great lesson. A boy hears his father's lesson: "Take care of those you call your own, and keep good company" and attempts to follow the advice without really understanding it. By the end of his life, he's alone and fallen trap to the very thing his father warned him of. All the sound effects are done on the Doc's Red Special, he employs his lovely voice in this as well, so essentially, nearly everything here is Bri's work. Perhaps in that way, it should not be considered the best Queen song, but it is definitely one of their finer works.Listen to sample
You have only hits on your list. Give the first five albums a chance or two, then you will really hear some good songs!
This is the very first Queen song ever written, and I's so underrated! It just has that happy-sad kind of feel to it. This is so amazing, I can't believe it was their first ever song.Listen to sample
