What songs would you like to be modified from live versions eg: I love the piano in Tie Your Mother Down from Opera Omnia, I would have liked a studio version of this, what would you like?

I'd wished there was studioversion of Hammer To Fall the way Brian perfomed it a long time ago, so with the slow version at the start followed by the heavy fast version. I'm so curious how it would sound when Freddie had did this in the studio...........but we never know, will we?

We Will Rock You (fast) would have been great.
Brian's solo on Too Much Love Wil Kill You is much better on Brixton Academy cd than the Made In Heaven version.
End of The Show Must Go On as sung by Queen+Elton John in 1997 is something I like too much. I would like to hear a studio version with same ending.
I would also like to hear Brian singing a studio version of Since You've Been  Gone.
Somebody To Love chorus part from Live In Cologne bootleg.
Guitar solo and piano towards the end of Spread Your Wings from 1979 concerts.
In The Lap Of The Gods as performed at Wembley '86.
Slow/fast version of Hammer To Fall as performed in 2005 Sheffield concert.

AKOM, WWRY, SOMEBODY TO LOVE, IWTBF and Radio Ga Ga all better live than studio versions.

Back Chat, Action This Day, Staying Power ... Hot Space as a whole just worked a lot better in the live versions.

Radio GaGa
A Kind of Magic
IWTBF

Pretty much any of their big hits from the 80's that were synth drenched on the records but rocked up live would be great to have.
