Could you tell me the difference between "song" and "tune" ?

When I want to express what is performed by a rock band, which do you use commonly?
for example...
I have listened to "something" performed by Queen.

    I think of a song as lyrics plus melody. A tune is usually only the melody.

    A song is composed of lyrics and melody/tune. A song is not a song without a tune. So a tune is an ingredient of a song. :)
