OK, I wanted to do some cleaning up on the extensive list John S Stuart provided here

http://forums.queenonline.com/viewtopic.php?t=33498

What I've already done is decide that anything not actually released on a record/CD in a shop doesn't fit within the list. So, with all due respect to the effort of the people involved, that's everything from "The Stage Of Champions" on here, out. Sorry. Live versions are also out, unless released. VHS/DVD releases are ok.

I'm also going to go through and remove the superfluous repetition of song titles, unless there's a deviation from the original (We Will Smurf You or whatever...) and tidy up the names (I think we have Scott Soto, Jeff as well as Jeff Scott Soto).

What I'd LIKE to do is add album (or single) titles wherever possible - there are a few in place (mainly the interminable tribute albums) and I'm going to research what I can, but I need help with it as many of these look...well...fucking obscure.

So, please, either post on here or mail to the queenpedia@gmail.com email address with album titles and ideally links to back it up.

Ahhhh fanguvermuch

May you have much luck in your quest....

So that people can see what you have already done here is a link to the Cover Version page on QP.

I was actually quite surprised at how well i did early on - quickly established that 4 poofs and a piano haven't released anything, Youth Brigade was an error (they were on the same Ep as Stunnin Utters) etc.

There are some big names that I doubt have released Queen covers though - Iron Maiden, GnR, Radiohead, U2 - maybe if people could look for their favourite other artists in the list and advise where the song comes from?

Other obvious questions:

Have G4 really released two different Bo Rhaps?

Are QUnit a mashup organisation?

Does Bob Rivers actually release stuff or just distribute parodies?

Is it Robby or Robbie Valentine & how much of the Queen catalogue has been released?

Is it "My Chemical Romance" or "Used & My Chemical Romance" that did Under Pressure?

Who's credited with SMGO on the Moulin Rouge OST?

It's Robby Valentine P_G. However, I don't think these were released - they were live performances at the Dutch Queen convention. The only Queen cover that Robby released that I'm aware of is Flick of the Wrist on his new CD "Falling Down In Misantropolis".

Valensia also did You Take My Breath Away - available on his "Nonplugged" mini-album.

CD Universe credits it to:

Jim Broadbent / Nicole Kidman / Anthony Weigh

It's actually on the Moulin Rouge 2 Soundtrack.

U2's live version of WWRY was not released. It was simply Bono singing the chorus a few times.

And available on the Scandinavian edition of the Queen Tribute album and as a B-side to the Valensian 'Man from Manhattan' single.

Bohemian Rhapsody-Butch Walker
This was off of the "Cover Me Badd" EP. Released in 2005.

Also not on the list was Butch Walker's cover of Under Pressure. It is a live version, but was officially released as a bonus track on the Japanese release of his first album, "Left of Self-Centered" in 2002.

This guy's really good. You all should check him out. Hope this helps.

Just noticed one that's not on there. Oddly enough, its a country cover of Fat Bottom Girls. Released by a guy named Kevin Fowler in 2002 on his album, "High on the Hog." Its pretty pathetic actually.

Radiohead have certainly never released CLTCL.

I think it was only ever Jonny and Thom arseing about and doing a short segment of it for a webcast, many moons ago.

Thanks - all updated.

Any Jeff Scott Soto experts like to tell me what he's released?

Anyone with an opinion on Freddie's Tribute Concert? It seems that currently some but not all performances are on there. My view is that Def Leppard's Now I'm Here & Extreme's set (if released) would be ok, but the second half is Queen with guest vocalists & therefore not a cover.

Fairly sure a-ha never released Love of My Life. It was just Morten Harket (without the others) singing it on some television program.

But while I agree with your assessment on the Freddie Tribute Concert, doesn't that also mean you should take off Robbie William's WATC?

But that's not what I mean, since the entire second of the FT concert that was also officially released.

I was referring to PG's comment that a cover does not include songs where it's essentially a singer with Queen as a backing group. Robbie's included, which was officially released, but George's Somebody to Love, which was a top 10 hit on its own, is not.

Just point out semantics.

I think the Robbie thing should stay. *barf* So, I guess that means the tribute concert stuff should stay, but is it really a cover version if Queen is there?? This is why I'm glad P_G is doing this page. ;-)

I say the best thing to do would be to leave the tribute concert performances.

Robbie would have recorded it anyway, RT & BM are guests on it, and aren't credited.

The tribute concert was "Queen and...."

So I'm comfortable with my position still.

But cheers for the ideas.

Hmmm.. Not sure. The soundtrack CD credits the track to Robbie Williams + Queen....

and yes I shamefully bought the soundtrack CD....
