How great is this song??? It just got me! Although I have listened to it Mio of times before I just realized how great it really is and now I can't stop listening to it.
Freddie's voice sounds kind of "smoky" (if that's what you call it) at some parts... it's just an awesome love song, isn't it??

Freddie did an excellent job on that song. So did John in writing it!
Notice the vocals weren't in many high registers. Kinda reminds me of Jealousy...I listened to Jazz last night and still love the songs (but still skip FBG and BR)!

It would have been a great song live, like '39.
A real shame they never did Princes of the Universe live -- Freddie probably would have lost his voice though! (So mnay registers, mine tends to waver by the "yeah -- YEAH!" part.)

"You and I" has a great Brian solo. Parts of the song always sounded live to me, as if they recorded the basic track live in the studio. Probably not the case, but I will indulge my fantasy.

"Ooh, you know I never could foresee the future years
You know I never could see where life was leading me"... Yes, I like that song. I love Jealousy too. I listened to that number for several times last weekend.




I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

Yep, my fave song on ADATR. Loved it the firsttime I ever heard it. Johns best song by far.
