I think this would've made a great single - and perhaps the b side alone would've been enough to get it up the Christmas chart for non fan sales?

An import release as it would reclaim the song as a Queen song, as Bowie was still a decade from adding it to his live set.

Live Magic. I had another listen, and it appears I was wrong. It's a bit ropey.

The best sound overall plus Freddie's vocals Montreal 81.
The bass and drums are very prominent.

Agreed. Plus Roger singing as a duet with Freddie at the end of the song is fantastic. Proof that Roger was/is the hardest working drummer in rock n roll!

this ^^^^ is another example of a statement on this site which if left unchecked can become "fact"...even when it's not
Don Henley - Eagles - drummer and lead vocals - hardest working drummer
Phil Collins - genesis (post gabriel) drummer/singer
Dave Clark - Dave Clark Five

and what about all those "harmony singing" drummers who work equally as hard as Roger?

Stan Lynch, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Meg White, White Stripes
Mikki Dolez of the Monkees
Sheila E - (prince's band)

True, I realise I said "the hardest working" when I should have said "One of the hardest working."
