To my knowledge there's one song with both of them singing which is:

"State of shock"

I have heard the one Freddie done as a solo to which MJ done as well:

"There must be more to life than this"


Thats all I have come accross at this point.

Apparantly the one song MJ done with Mick Jagger was ment to have Freddie on there but MJ busted Freddie snorting coke in his bathroom and that was it, all over.... Rumor? Who knows, but if it was true then why the fuck did he team up with Mick Jagger??? 

I wonder how many songs there are that Freddie and MJ may of done as demos..

I was just wondering about this very thing. I know there were three songs, but, I don't know what the third song was. I've been perusing my trusty Purvis book, trying to find the answer.

Likely, it is something obvious, and, my increasingly feeble mind simply refuses to recall it. It's been driving me crrrrrrrrrazy all day, and, I was only just now able to retrieve my Purvis book.


It is all random

Victory

Michael Jackson, 1983. Freddie
Mercury provides joint lead vocals and possibly piano.

This track began as a Queen track, presumably intended for 'Hot
Space', but was not completed. However, it was then worked on by
Freddie and Michael Jackson in 1983, but this in turn remains
unreleased, although it was reportedly due to be released in 2002
but then cancelled. The track may then have been re-recorded by
The Jacksons for their 1984 album of the same name, although I
cannot confirm this.



State Of Shock

Michael Jackson, 1983.
Features Freddie Mercury on vocals. Length 4:43.

The original duet of this track remains unreleased, although it
was due to be released officially in 2002, but the release was
cancelled. However, the track was re-recorded by The Jacksons for
their 1984 album 'Victory', and reached #14 in 1984. A live
performance of the track, featuring Mick Jagger and Tina Turner,
can be found on the 'Live Aid' DVD. However the lyrics below
refer to the unreleased duet version.

Lyrics: (Lyrics in Black are sung by Freddie and
Michael; lyrics in Red are sung by Freddie; lyrics in Blue are
sung by Michael Jackson)

There Must Be
More To Life Than This

Duet with Michael Jackson,
1983. Written by Freddie Mercury.

This track features the same backing track as the album version
(but slightly longer), and features vocals sung by both Freddie
Mercury and Michael Jackson.

The original version remains unreleased, but it was re-recorded
by Freddie Mercury for Mr Bad Guy.

Available Versions:

1. Duet Version (3:07)
(vocals by Freddie & Michael)

2. Rehearsal Version (2:32) (vocals by Michael with dialogue from
Freddie) (the song is around 2 minutes long but the piano
continues for 35 seconds) (click here for lyrics)

Lyrics: (Lyrics in
Black are sung by Freddie and Michael; lyrics in Red are sung by
Freddie; lyrics in Blue are sung by Michael Jackson)

There must be more to life
than this

There must be more
to life than this

How do we cope in a world without
love

Mending all those broken
hearts

And tending to those crying faces



There must be more to life
than living

A better way for us
to survive

Why should it be just a
case of black or white

There must be more to life than this



Why is this world so full of hate

People dying everywhere

And we destroy what we create

People fighting for their human rights

But we just go on saying c'est la vie

So this is life



There must be more to life
than killing

There must be more
than meets the eye

What good is life, if in
the end we all must die

There must be more to life than this



There must be more to life
than killing

There must be more
to life than this

I live in hope for
a world filled with love

Then we can all just live in peace



There must be more to
life, much more to
life

There must be more to
life, more
to life than this



Rehearsal Lyrics: (lyrics are sung by Michael
Jackson but Freddie speaks the dialogue in red)

There must be more to life than this

There must be more to life than this

How do we cope in a world without love

Mending all those broken hearts

And tending to those crying faces



There must be more to life than killing (Freddie: that’s right )

A better way for us to survive (Freddie: adlib)

(Ad-libbed) in a world
with our children

There must be more to life than this



Why is this world so full of hate

People dying everywhere

And we destroy what we create

People fighting for their human rights

But we’ll just go on saying c'est la vie

So this is life



There must be more to life than killing

There must be more than meets the eye

I live in hope for a world filled with love

Then we can all just live in peace



There must be more to life, much more to life

There must be more to life, more to life than this



Arse.

I don't know why I remember there being a rap song done by mj and freddie mercury, I just remember that I was happy it was unreleased. I dont particularly like rap.

I only have the rehearsal one without Freddie but I thought I read once that the Duet version was just a fan made mix using this demo. Is this true or are they both real demo versions?


Edit: I was going to check the source listed but i can't get it to link. (Page not found)

I am very firmly of the view that the duet is a fan mix

From what I heard there were 3 songs taped. Don´t know if this is true and it´s possibly only a demo, but that would mean that there is 1. State of shock, 2. There must be more to life than this and 3. ??? Time will tell.

EDIT. Nevermind this post :)

They were terrible songs at any rate.  The fact that Freddie and Michael are both dead now might make them slightly more worth listening to for some people but really...

state of shock sounds like a typical pop song that could have been on mr bad guy,  vocally is good,  though musically sucks...... If brian and roger did finish this song it has potential to be much better than the version we heard. Especially that it's regarded as more a michael song it could be a hit.  No offense to Mr. Jackson, but generally his music isn't on the same level as queen.  Most of his hits are simple pop songs, so state of shock qualifies.

Was it perhaps "State of Shock"? I mean, you can hardly call what they were doing there singing, and I could see why someone would mistake it for rap.

It would be nice if somebody made a re-mix of There Must Be More To Life Than This.

One verse of Freddie and one verse with Michael Jackson etc.

That shouldn't be too hard for the re-mix boys, I think...?
