While the Yoshiki version is more developed from a musical standpoint, the original seems a bit more heartfelt(?). Kind of like comparing the Queen and Brian May versions of TMLWKY

Hard to choose...both are certainly better than the movie, though.

Definiitely The Cross version. Do like Rogers drumming in the Yoshiki one though

Is this the song where Roger excels at his lyrical ability by talking about skiing of the bridge of some girls nose?

Though he purposely removed that line from the reworked version!

That's fair enough! Do check out the version with Yoshiki though - it's not a straight 're-record' though, but more an almost different beast with a totally different arrangement, and, as noted by 'MusicMan03' above, features some of Roger's best drumming for many a year.
