They say behind every great man there is a great woman. That’s certainly true for this list of songs about queens. From Games of Thrones to the game of chess, time and time again we are reminded that frequently it is the king’s female counterpart that truly wields power. Another great reminder of that fact is this list of songs about queens, in which musicians profess their love for the ruling members of the fairer sex. Many countries may no longer be ruled by monarchies, but their past under a throne will not be soon forgotten. However you feel about queens, there’s sure to be a song on this list that will bring out your inner queen, no matter what particular power, or preference, she may have.

ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” was one of the most successful singles ever released, an international smash hit.

“God Save the Queen” was the Sex Pistols kiss-off track to the British monarchy, and caused quite a stir in England upon its release.

“Killer Queen” was the breakthrough track for Queen, raising their profile in both their native U.K. and the U.S.
