Well after painful research the results kept coming up that Mother Love was his last song until i found a old time fan who i found through another fan who done the same thing had the same results but in fact after working together Mother Love was the LAST recorded but not completed but A WINTERS Tale is in fact Freddies last ever completed track under the fact that Brian May took last verse on Mother Love but A Winters tale must be the last ever time freddie could reach the vocal levels i now have in my collection a A-Caplla of A Winters Tale i warn you it may be beautiful its VERY painful to listen to in-depth if you did'nt know that he was dying its fine to listen to (that goes out to the new fans) but i refuse to share it on here so thank you

Oh God, are you on drugs ? I've known a guy who used to talk like you write after he smoked a joint :(

Please use stuff like commas, paragraphs, dots ... It's really very hard to read what you wanted to write, sorry.

Back to topic - " i found a old time fan who i found through another fan who done the same thing had" - that's not  really a good source, don't you think ? The official info (from Brian, I think) says the last song sung by Freddie was Mother Love and after listening to the album several dozen times I really believe it.

But you're not alone, even Sebastian (who I consider an expert on these things) isn't sure which song was the last

It seems like it's up for debate.  Mercury's vocal sound very strained in A Winter's Tale.  So it could be possible.

Painful research = googling more than three times and asking a friend of a friend of a friend.

I hope you're not a biochemist.

From slightly conflicting interviews from Brian and Dave Richards, there seems to have been overlap with the songs.  The impression I had is that he started A Winter's Tale first, did Mother Love in Montreux, then when he'd returned to London he finished A Winter's Tale (or Mother Love) at Metropolis studios for some reason. 

Unfortunately I have no links for you so that's basically worth squat. 
It isn't even known for sure whether he stopped recording in May 1991 (months before he died, and while he was still well enough to stand under hot lights for a short while and mime for videos) or a matter of weeks/months before he passed (rather hard to believe, although perhaps he experienced an 'Indian summer' of sorts when he ceased his treatment - I've heard that's possible).

There's interviews and other evidence to suggest both.

That's very strange... I think we all missed the point of the guy/gal here - "A Winters Tale" is the last FINISHED song and "Mothers Love" is the last UNFINISHED song. I guess that's what the s/he wanted to tell us. And if it's so - s/he might as well discover America too ;)

Yup. That's how it was always told by the insiders.

Actually. Ignore me. I was only going to repeat what a few others have said already.

That's actually kind of mean. Saying you have something and then refusing to share it. Who are you? Queen Productions (LOL!).

The link below may not be to a "clean" acapella folks, but it's the best I can do with my software.
Hopefully no-one will jump on me about posting official material. Call it a "fan mix".
