The iTunes-exclusive track for TCR is Runaway... it can also be downloaded separately so for just € 0.99 it's possibly to "complete" the album (no need to buy the complete album if you already have a physical copy).
The song is great, sounds nice and Brian's solo is crisp as ever...

Great track.
On my site I've put a one-minute teaser of the song.

It's terrible.
No wonder it's not on the album.
The original song is about two and a half minutes long, this is 5 and a half and it drags.
It would have been better if Roger had taken lead vocals.

I reckon its a fantastic version, they've done a great job on an already great song, that doesn't always happen with covers so hats off to them. Shame they don't play it or at least some of it live.

I downloaded it yesterday from iTunes Spain;

no, will never use the word terrible or bad.

Honestly, it is pretty funny to me :)

What makes them give exclusivity to those buying cheap lossy copies instead of physical copies? :\ Bastards.

I hope CR will be released as a single in the next months and feature Runaway as b-side.

I think it's a great version, shows off Roger well and sounds like they had fun. I can see why it's not on the album but glad to have a copy of it out there.

Yesh, this vershion is much better than teh original by BuddywhatshisnameDelShannon. IT*S BRILLIANT, evrithang Queen touches is Gold, every cover vershion day do is betta than teh original.
Juts look at Freddy's Great Presenter, he totally outsang Tony Williams didn't he, despite a dental disability and all!

I hope Queen will do more cavers in the future, because anything with Queen on it saunds fabulous and better! I'm reely hopping for the following Itunes special cover tunes!

Girl You Know It's True (lead by Brian)

I love the new album and I'm glad it's not on it....I think it would give the album too much of a 50s feel with Cosmos rockin there too...Brian has made a full album's worth of these songs now.... Having said that, I'm glad it's an extra track....of course if the record companies were smart they would have packaged it with the single..to force people to buy it and the single........maybe if they get smart now they can do that with the second single and pair it with wherever they made it with Take Love or in the US...could add Runaway....

I actually didn't mind it - in good humour at least.
