Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but my research can't come up with any original "Friends Will Be Friends" single with "Princes Of The Universe" as the b-side, let alone one with the standard cover. Was such a single released in 1986? Or is this (gasp) a cheat to get FWBF on the list?

I'm glad "Pain Is So Close To Pleasure" made it on the list, that's a great mix.

Will "Who Wants To Live Forever" be the actual single version? It's not listed as such.

I think even Queen Productions thought it was going a bit to far to include Seven Seas of Rhye and Killer Queen as the original b-sides to Friends Will Be Friends and Who Wants To Live Forever. Shame they didn't include the Australian Princes of the Universe single though - one of the best single sleeves ever.
