    I'll go with "Tenement Funster" from Sheer Heart Attack. That is a killer tune...

    Good one!

    "I'm in Love With My Car", is another good Roger song!

    Brian did a great job on "'39" too........

    I'm going with Tenement Funster, too. Great song.
    Although I might also consider Under Pressure, if that counts.

    I wouldn't count Under Pressure. He's sharing lead vocals with Bowie, but he's definitely still handling a lot of the vocals. That's definitely him hitting those insane high notes.

    I think this question was more leaning towards songs like '39, Tenement Funster or I'm in Love With My Car.

    I think Roger Taylor had a cool rock n roll voice, and I wish he had sung more. "I'm in Love With My Car" is a fantastic song and should be considered along with any of the great tunes about cars/hotrods/highways etc.

    I love "Sail Away Sweet Sister", with May on lead vocals.

    that one is probably my favorite...., altho I always like most of Taylor's tunes as well. Fight from the Inside was a good rocker. I also liked his goofy solo albums.

    This would be my answer, as well. I won't say it's the best, but it's my favorite.
