I'm not a fan of the album version of this song, but what do you think of the live 03/11/1982 (Chicago) rendition?
After Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy, this (particular version of the) song is the second most-played Queen track I have. According to iTunes, that is. Basically, I've listened to it a LOT!
The lyrics are beautiful as is, though this rendition is haunting. Poignant.
I wanted to ask, of those people who like this song (perhaps there aren't many?), are there any other worthwhile live versions? I have one other one, can't remember the date (where Brian introduces it with a rather lame-sounding "this is called...life is real" (random guy shouts 'yeahh!') but it doesn't compare to the abovementioned version!
Trots om 'n Suid-Afrikaner te wees!
