I came across the following;
"Ride The Wild Wind" was composed by Roger Taylor, who recorded a demo
with his own vocals. The definitive version is sung by Mercury with
Taylor on backing vocals. The song is a sort of sequel of Roger's "A
Night at the Opera" composition, "I'm In Love With My Car",
which focused on Taylor's passion for cars and race. This time, the
song involved all of the other members, that gave life to a fast song
with beating drums and rhythmic bass line, eerily note-for-note similar
to The Smiths' "Shakespeare's Sister", which create the sensation of
speed and engine's roar. In the mid-part, a May solo, which accentuates
the sense of high velocity, and also gives the song a heavier sound. In
some parts a racing car can be heard. It was released as a single in
Poland, peaking at number one.
Released in Poland? Any info on that? thanks!
