Is there an extended single version of Headlong?  The main reason I ask is because on the video for Headlong there is an extra guitar riff that does not appear on the album version of the song.  In the video the extra guitar riff is the one Brian plays when he is on top of the stairs right before "Hey, he used to be a man with stick in his hand."

That's the most extended version I know of!

The extra bit also appears in The eYe instrumental mix of "Headlong."

I'm guessing it was part of the original song and was removed from the Album and Single versions for some reason.

Strange how that worked out.

On the video for Headlong from the 'Queen Rocks' video, the extra riff has been removed.

Pity given that I think that extra riff sounds good in that part of the song

It's the so-called "video version" of the track. As far as I know that extra riff is unique to the video version. 

It does make it a bit more special, doesn't it?

If you listen to the demo, it's also in that, but only as a bass riff. That would nearly prove it was originally meant to be there i'm guessing.
