I must say, I love the song.
It is beautiful.

But I wonder what inspired it?
There are hints of it that are reminiscent of the book of Revelation in the New Testament.
Great backing harmonies.

Can you please point out such 'hints'?

Btw, 'dear friends' appears in the lyrics of 'White Queen' :)


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

The Immortal Highlander, I agree, I love the song, but I have no idea of how it was created. Anyone know?

It was created by placing musical notes on a piece of music paper. Brian probably then played the piece for the band and Freddie took on to the idea.

No, but seriously, I'm not all that sure. My guess is that Brian May was down in the dumps and wanted to write something beautiful and poignant.
