We Believe was released to radio stations as digital single on Friday last week by EMI Germany. The song was shortened to 3:40 mins by omitting most of the first verse (like they play it live) and cutting later. Sadly, no advertising, not even additional informations from EMI to the release. Few chance for airplay, I'm afraid. The EMI bosses should learn to work like a record company!

Amazing. My respect for Brian as a songwriter is going down, down, down. And they even have the impudence to release it as a single??







That's much worse than the Tenacious D rip-off that is c-lebrity's guitar riff. 







And the Lovin' Spoonful song is much nicer.

Say it's not true...

I mean seriously, if I am to play devil's avocado here, "Call Me" is more radio friendly.

in my humble opinion, cosmos rockin' IS (i mean it should be)  the single: it's title track, it's rock'n roll, it's fun, and with some money of investment it would become a great video!!!!
why not?

If true, this is a terrible choice for a single. It's only an average song anyway, but the main problem is that it doesn't have any catchy radio-friendly elements that would justify using it as a single. Brian May's ego perhaps over-ridng common sense?

What a joke! It bears little resemblance to We Believe.

We're not talking about Coldplay's viva la vida song, which happens to resemble 2-3 different songs.

I look forward to hearing if WB is coming as a single as it's my fav song.

To *country* music radio, sure but not mainstream radio, not even close.

I dunno.  I heard something on the radio last week that was certainly on that side of the country fence, but then I do live in Australia and this place shouldn't even have radio sometimes, I swear.

Put it this way; if you can have that Kid Rock cocksucker ripping off Sweet Home Alabama (a shit song to begin with) and having it on the radio on a regular basis (again, I think this country should sell all of it's radio stations) then I don't see "Call Me" being that outlandish.

I don't even like the song that much but at least it's not "We Believe".  Ha-ha

What I was getting at is that neither song is really a good single, I think.  Surely if you had to pick one, you'd go with the one that's shorter, the one that doesn't take a thesaurus to sing along with.

Actually... do they even need another single???
Who buys those things nowadays?

WE BELIEVE would flop big time
It's the single worst song they have EVER recorded...

Jeez. I love the song. Especially Bri's solo. "Call Me" would be more radio friendly imo. Make's no difference what they release here in New Zealand though. Never heard Celebrity played once on any of the radio stations here, including the classic rock ones. Great record company you've got there boys!

Just further evidence that Brian May is out of touch with reality.

Excellent choice as a single. One of my faves on the album although I would have released 'Small' before 'We Believe'.

As I said elsewhere, We Believe may not be my favourite track off the album, but it's 100 times better than Surf's Up.., and it also has a bit of a Christmassy sort of feel to it, so I think it's a commercially well timed release.  I also think it will get quite a bit of Radio 2 airplay, and I've already heard Johnny Walker playing it.  Currently reserving judgement on the 3:40 edit, until I've heard it, but traditionally, single edits haven't all been wonderful, and I hope this isn't just hacked in half for the sake of it.  It's a shame they couldn't have put out the full version, as Queen have released long singles in the past, but I guess WB is a bit repetetive for over six minutes of airplay.

A BIT??? It's about 4 minutes TOO long! ;0 There's NOTHING happening in that track, NOTHING... plain boring, from start to finish. Yeah, Queen released some long singles- but NO-ONE in their right mind is going to compare WE BELIEVE with BORHAP and INNUENDO, are they? ;)

Anyway- apparently according to Radio 2 the next single is CALL ME.
Maybe they are not that out of touch with reality as we thought? ;)
