Many of you who've seen this video probably thought that Brian/Freddie stole the Millionaire Waltz solo from this Winnie the Pooh song. Wrong actually; it was the other way around. That WTP song, which is on "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" wasn't released till 1977. The Millionaire's Waltz was written? and recorded in 1976. Therefore, it is either a very odd coincidence or Winnie the Pooh was somewhat influenced by Queen.

you could say that "Queen & Winnie The Pooh" stole from any of the great composers that ever composed a Waltz., Because that's all that is, a "Waltz"


Joyful the sound

It's not the waltz aspect that is similar. It's the melody and harmony and the idea when Brian is joined by another guitar, Winnie the Pooh is joined by Christopher Robin.

And which composers composed a waltz with that melody? I'd be very interested to see.

This is the most idiotic topic I've seen on QZ in a long time. Quite a feat!
