Not so much a traditional greatest-hits album, Queen's Greatest Hits III is a collection of rarities, remixes, and album tracks. There's only one actual chart hit in these 17 cuts, the version of "Somebody to Love" recorded at the Freddie Mercury tribute concert with George Michael on lead vocals. Other songs with guest singers include Elton John's take on "The Show Must Go On" and an interesting remix of "Another One Bites the Dust," with guest raps by Wyclef Jean. Besides that, there are three solo tracks by Mercury and one by Brian May, plus about a third of the final Queen album, Made in Heaven. Highlights include Queen's final recording, the tribute "No One But You (Only the Good Die Young)," recorded for a charity single in the wake of Princess Diana's death.
