Hi there, it's me again, now with another enigma, this time I bring the doubt if at 4:49 what you heard is an alto sax or some kind of horn perhaps?, or it's just another instrument who sound alike?, please could someone (a musician) solve this case?

That's just some high pitched backing vocals.

Never noticed it before though.

It sounds backing vocals that were turned down in the final mix, its a lot clearer on the karaoke version. I suspect that Rogers 'yeah.. yeahhhh' that he sang in the live version might actually have been recorded but not used. How awesome would it be to hear that?

If it's *NOT* a vocal, then it'll be a Brian May guitar effect.
