Well, some people aren't able to tell who composed 'Innuendo' or 'Was It All Worth It' so there you go.


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.

If you listen to in as a 128kbps mp3 it really sounds like Brian imitating Freddie

Well, let's be nice with our friend with a doubt. It does sound a lot like a Brian May tune, but not like his voice singing it. :)

Cheers,

PS: Brian wrote it, didn't he?

Didn't they record that song inside Freddie's car - you know - to get that bouncing off the windshield sound?

Note for note, one of Freddie's best vocal performances.

Brian wrote it, and Freddie sang it. Remember that Brian was very sick during this period of Queen's early days.

Let our candle always burn;

Let us never lose the lessons we have learned." - Brian May

Brian also sang a song on this record, so I don't think his sickness had anything to do with it.

Is this you trying to show off your Queen 'knowledge'? If so, shut up.

Its funny you should mention Brians illness. Didnt he have to take time away from the band while they were making Sheer Heart Attack as he had an ulcer? I always thought he wrote this song for the band during that time?

I didnt think it was an ulcer - I thought it was malaria or meninjitis or diptheria or suchlike.....
Ok, so I forget the disease/virus, but he caught something more serious than getting an ulcer if I remeber correctly!
I say that as though I was there - I was still but a twinkle in my dad's eye at the time, but you know what I mean.
