(1) 1. Queen - We Are The Champions
(NEW) 2. Queen - We WIll Rock You
Of course they're 2 songs! Rock You was the UK b-side and they are listed as 2 songs on the album and all compilation albums (at least in UK). Only in America (and Canada) are they treated as a medley. As Rock You was a UK b-side and never a UK promoted song, i'm not bothering to list it, even if it IS superior to Champions.

1 1 David Bowie - "Heroes" (5 weeks top)
2 2 ABBA - The Name Of The Game

How on earth are "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions" the same song? :-? :-? :-?

Alas, however much of an iconic rock song "We Will Rock You" is, it's up against the song I did my first dance to at my wedding, so it can't possibly win out. Got to throw some token points behind the original of "The Floral Dance" as well - even if it's not a patch on Sir Terry...

1 NEW Billy Joel - Just The Way You Are
2 NEW Queen - We Will Rock You
3 (1) Queen - We Are The Champions
4 (2) The Carpenters - Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft (The Recognised Anthem of World Contact Day)
5 (4) Status Quo - Rockin' All Over The World
6 (5) Tom Robinson - 2-4-6-8 Motorway
7 (3) Stevie Wonder - As
8 (7) Judy Collins - Send In The Clowns
9 (8) David Bowie - Heroes
10 (6) The Barron Knights - Live In Trouble
11 NEW Brighouse & Rastrick Brass Band - Floral Dance

American radio played them as a continuous medley and that's how they treat them over there. The band apparently always performed the 2 songs like this live. But it's clear to any record buyer :o that they're separate songs.
