Hello Friends, what is your favorite demo? Why? which should have been included in the bonus 2011?

My favorite demo is My Secret Fantasy

No.

They weren't even songs. They were song ideas. And poor ones.

Sandbox... No lyrics but it sounds like it would have been a classic if it were finished.

Of course! they arent even demos but i always think that Self Made Man and Robbery would be great tracks with a bit (or maybe more than a bit) of work

there's a lot of "crap" from the sessions from around 88-90...
the band did work on some tracks on both sessions (Innuendo is a good example)...
"My Secret Fantasy" (which smells of a Deacon/Mercury collaboration) could have been a B-side
"Face it Alone" has a tremendous intro - then nothing...guitar-wise it's bliss
"Robbery" is studio stuff - they tried the recipe and it was a good result with "Stealin'"
for me the only song that could have/should have been developed, screams "I'm your next single", is "I guess we're falling out" - can't understand how they threw out that melody!

I Guess We're Falling Out is hideous! The chorus literally sounds like a joke. A rambling, raspy mess.

Robbery and My Secret Fantasy aren't all that great. Self Made Man was a good canvas (if I can use that word) - with a lot of work on it, there's the potential for it to be a decent song. As it stands it's just a thing that they gave up on, and in its current form not very interesting at all.

It's the reaction of someone who's just realised I'm fucking right.

Before you ask people to fuck you, please first tell us something about yourself. It makes it easier to decide for us whether we want to do such thing to you.
