    You want a Top 3, for another rehash of stuff released already, you should be grateful for a Top 10, let alone a Top 5. I think the midweeks look excellent considering what it is. Nice to see Floyd have slightly increased their lead.
    I wasn't expecting anything from this, I barely talked about it in the last two months. But now that it is a close race between 3 releases (for the numbers 3, 4 and 5), I want that Top 3 place if possible. It seems difficult, although the other compilations and digital songs will also get a boost, so not everything is bad.

    I also had a gut that the documentary wouldn't be all that helpful to the new collection and that people would invest in previous greatest hits compilations instead. I don't feel like a lot of people are aware that Queen Forever is out. Do any of you know where The Platinum Collection and Greatest Hits were before the documentary?

    Here are the results of the UK Poll to find 'The Nation's Favourite Queen Song'.

    The No.1 was inevitable. It is interesting that their 2 USA No.1 Hits only came 13th & 14th in the Poll

    1... Bohemian Rhapsody
    2... We Will Rock You
    3... Don't Stop Me Now
    4... I Want To Break Free
    5... We Are The Champions
    6... Killer Queen
    7... Under Pressure
    8... Radio Ga Ga
    9... I'm Going Slightly Mad
    10... Somebody To Love
    11... Who Wants To Live Forever

    The ITV show doesn't seem to have made a strong impact on Itunes for the album Forever, but it sure did on the individual songs and former compilations, so I think our dear Jimmypages59 was probably correct. Anyway, Itunes isn't probably that important:

    United Kingdom (105)

    Songs:

    88. Bohemian Rhapsody
    101. These Are the Days of Our Lives
    104. The Show Must Go On
    122. Who Wants To Live Forever
    132. Don't Stop Me Now
    143. Let Me In Your Heart Again
    154. Somebody To Love
    158. I Want To Break Free
    171. Under Pressure

    Albums:

    14. Queen Forever
    25. The Platinum Collection
    38. Greatest Hits
    43. Queen Forever
    126. Greatest Hits II

    As a recent purchaser of many Queen albums lately I would agree,the real gems are in the album releases,dont need another GH release. I think i will buy Live at Rainbow 1974 if I dont go broke first. Hur what's bettter DVD or CD?
    Good to hear about new buyers, always nice when people delve into an old act's catalogue, as I have done with several acts in the past, including Queen, of course.

    There are combos with both the CD and the DVD version, apart from the separate releases. However, If I were you, I would buy the DVD one. But if it is too expensive, the CD is a good option too.

    Hard to believe another compilation could make the Top 5/10 this week in the UK, although, as mentioned, this one has a bunch of new songs. Let's see how it finishes the week.

    Looking at the ITunes Charts worldwide and various other online sales merchants I think Queen Forever could sell better worldwide then Absolute Greatest did. As far as I am aware AG did well in the UK and has exceeded 700,000 sales (?) whilst it also did well in Canada selling around 110,000 copies (from what I can remember from the sales numbers HUR kindly provided a while back).

    QF seems to be doing OK in the US as well. We won't know until next weeks Billboard charts how well it will do there but it's been at number 31 on Amazon.com main album sales chart and it's at 29 on the US iTunes albums charts.

    The advantage it does have over AG is that there is 3 'new' songs, one including MJ on there. The amount of compilations out there though may put some off.

    If this was an album comprising totally unreleased material (which I am sure they were capable of doing if I think of what remains in the archives that is known about let alone what we DON'T know about) sort of like Made In Heaven 2 then sales o course would have been much better. Pink Floyd's success shows what can happen if the album is completely 'new' unheard material.

    They are bound to give the Wacko Jacko track an airing, seeing as it is clearly being made the biggest deal of the album. X-Factor on Saturday night past (8/11) had Queen/Michael Jackson night where they also played a short snippet of the track.

    Thanks, Jimmy.

    What I don't understand is, has the TV especial with their Top 10 hits been broadcasted already? If not, how important will that be?
    It is on tonight at 9pm UK time on the ITV Channel http://www.itv.com/presscentre/press-re ... queen-song

    I can't imagine it not having an effect on Forever, but to what extent I'm not sure, given that a lot of the tracks that I imagine will feature in the Top 20 & the show, will not actually be on Forever, but GH & GHII.

    From what I'd imagine might be in the Top 20 and are on Forever, I'd hazard a guess at the following tracks could feature on the programme, some definitely, some borderline

    4. "Play the Game" (2014 remaster - No intro) Mercury The Game 3:14
    6. "You're My Best Friend" (2011 remaster) John Deacon A Night at the Opera 2:52
    7. "Love of My Life" (2011 remaster) Mercury A Night at the Opera 3:33
    18. "Who Wants to Live Forever" (2011 remaster) May A Kind of Magic 5:15
    2. "Somebody To Love" (2014 remaster / with fade) Mercury A Day at the Races 4:52
    3. "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" (2011 remaster) Mercury The Game 2:43
    4. "Friends Will Be Friends" (2011 remaster) Mercury/Deacon A Kind of Magic 4:06
    10. "It's a Hard Life" (2014 remaster / with fade) Mercury The Works 4:06

    Filtering out the the songs that are actually mentioned in the write up, it appears that the following 15 songs are definitely included.

    I Want It All
    The Show Must Go On
    Bohemian Rhapsody
    I Want To Break Free
    Killer Queen
    Under Pressure
    These Are The Days of Our Lives
    Radio Ga Ga
    Another One Bites The Dust
    We Are The Champions
    A Kind Of Magic
    Somebody to Love
    Don’t Stop Me Now
    We Will Rock You
    You’re My Best Friend

    As for the other five tracks, it's got to be between Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Bicycle Race, Fat Bottom Girls, Hammer to Fall, It's a Hard Life, One Vision & Who Wants to Live Forever. Maybe outside chances of stuff like Heaven for Everyone, Play the Game, Save Me, Flash or Friends Will Be Friends.

    UK Midweek Album Chart

    1 Pink Floyd - The Endless River (76.3k) *
    2 Foo Fighters - Sonic Highways (48.1k) *
    3 Sam Smith - In The Lonely Hour (14.1k)
    4 Queen - Forever (13.0k) *
    5 Ed Sheeran - x (12.7k)

    Excellent start for Forever, given that it is essentially yet another compilation of released material from them, with a few twists.

    At the moment Queen Forever is doing well in Asia, tomorrow it will probably get the best achievement on I-Tunes.
    I think it won't have the same result of Absolute Greatest though, but the difference is that now all the catalogue is selling well, in particular Greatest Hits and Platinum Collection, while in 2009 there was only Absolute Greatest.

    It is very likely that its mutiple editions (released in 1981, 1992 and 2004) have sold 10 million in total, or close to that. It still has that 8x platinum, certified in 2006, but it may well get diamond anytime in the next year.

    A Day At the Races

    #161 Sweden

    Innuendo

    #198 Czech Republic

    I think they just show the Top 200 positions now, not Top 400 anymore. Maybe no studio album was charting on the Top 200 yesterday?
