"A Dozen Red Roses" ? curious election !

What do you mean, when asking additional info about those songs ?
one is the b-side of Play The Game and the other is the b-side of AKOM. Little else is known, I guess.

My fave is I Go Crazy. The ending is  wild and Roger´s backing vocals are fantastic. It should have been included in The Works.

Soul Brother is also good; and Hang On In There, but since it was included in the cd of The Miracle it shouldn´t be included in your list of non-album songs, isn´t it ?

going a little off topic now,  many years ago I did what most of us, a compilation tape with b-sides/non album tracks, and that tape started with Chinese Torture followed by Hang On In There. I loved the way both songs connected and from then on I´ve always believed it could have been an amazing opening for The Miracle album. Can you imagine that? Chinese Torture as an opening instrumental track followed inmediately by Hang On In There and then ... whatever you like: I Want It all, Scandal, Breakthru. 

What do you think?

In the following order, See What A Fool I've Been, Human Body, Soul Brother and I go Crazy. The rest are pants. Chinese Torture is one of the worst pieces of noise ever recorded. What was Brian thinking...

You can include album B Sides otherwise it would be a bit of a short disscussion.Sorry i didn't think it through,Monday morning syndrome!!! I got the feeling that Human Body and Red Roses were almost Roger solo pieces.I wonder why HB was not put on the Game as it is a really good track.

I Go Crazy
See What a Fool I've Been

Good luck getting the Freddie version of "Rock It." It's securely locked up in Queen's vault, and to the best of my knowledge, hasn't leaked out yet.

Chinese Torture is a perfect example that Brian took drugs :)
