I remember when this song was released. I could barely listen to it because it was so emotional. I loved it though. The melody, the singing, the harmonies, the piano. Everything! To me this is a full blooded Queen song with all the Queen elements in it. Its not only a Queen song to me, its one of the best.

I recently heard a version of the song from the WWRY musical. It became appearent to me that the song has great qualities melodywise.

What do you think of this song?

People hear what they want to hear. I wanted more Queen, and that's what I heard. For me, it's as Queen as you can get without Freddie bursting out of a coffin.

Some folks don't consider it a real Queen song, and that's fair enough.

It's as much a Queen song as, say, Sleeping On The Sidewalk, Good Company, Fight From The Inside....

Those (as far as I recall) don't feature Freddie when they could have done.

Actually, does John play on Fight Fom The Inside either???)

I don't consider it a Queen song. But I do consider it better than any Queen song.


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.

Brilliant song, I get very emotional when I listen to it alone. And yes, of course it's a Queen song, I think the saddest one to perform for Roger, Brian & John. Probably that's the song that they would never like to sing ever, I don't know if you know what I mean

Amazing song. Most definitely a Queen song - you can say the same about the stuff on MIH because most of the new bits weren't recorded with Freddie there I guess. Roger / Brian and John are most definitely "Queen" anyway.

NOBY is one of the best songs Queen have ever done.

I agree that this is a fantastic Queen song about Freddie, and with a marvellous video with beautifully matched footage elements with Freddie. Although, i consider it as a tribute to Freddie, not a "Queen song", you know, but "QUeen song for Freddie".

Great song I'd say it was there way of saying goodbye to a great friend dont matter if its a Queen song or not but I'd say yes it is since there were all 3 real members.

A Queen song for sure. Queen songs have always had a certain quality and this has quality by the bucket load. I'm sure it was destined to be a Brian solo effort and Roger convinced him to record it as Queen.

To my mind, the last proper Queen song.

i agree with you..for those who say no Freddie no Queen, well, there you go, Good Company is just perfect example of QUEEN SONG without Freddie, just like C-Lebrity :)
