in the official video for,those were the days,,,after fred says,i still love you it cuts to brian playing guitar.
but in ,champions of the world vide,it stays on fred untill he leaves stage right as we look at it.
myself i prefer the champions video,fred says i still love you and leaves,,theres something about that last clip...a goodbye if you like.
wel all know brian was added later (he was in the usa or something),but that last scene with fred,seems just right.
what are your thoughts on the ending.
do you prefer brians guitar  or freds leaving.

Given that it was Freddie's last time in front of the camera, it just seems right that the video ends with him.  We all know that the song was Roger's, but it has become recognised as a "goodbye" from Freddie.  That's the better ending for me.

My favourite version of the video for "These Are The Days Of Our Lives"  is the original version with the animation (by original, I mean the 1st animated version, not the re-edit which appears on the Classic Queen VHS). I like the straight black & white version, but for me, the animated one fits the imagery of the album artwork reflected in the other videos: dark, slightly askew and very colourfully theatric.
