In 1998, Wyclef Jean along with Pras Michel, Canibus, and Free and remixed the song using a new instrumental track and samples from the actual song for the 1998 movie Small Soldiers. This version also appeared on Queen's compilation Greatest Hits III released in 1999. It was remixed again in 2006 by The Miami Project. IT WAS A COVER VERSION AGAIN IN 2007 BY LILY ALLEN AND WYCLEF JEAN REACHING NO 1 IN THE BRITISH CHARTS,only the second time a Queen song covered by another artist after McFly has topped the charts.


My question is, did anyone hear about this cover version by Lily Allen????

Just because it's on Wikipedia doesn't make it true. Can't see any other reference to this being fact, nor have I heard it mentioned in the past. Sounds like nonsense to me.

Strikes me as nonesense - in particular I think we might have noticed if AOBTD had topped the charts at some point this year.
