Wow!, Good prizes:

1-7 correctly - Polar Bear with Queen (Freddie on vocals)

All questions correctly - Let Me Live-Original Version
(I've never listened it)


It's a pity, there are several answers that I don't know (Damn !)



And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...

- Polar Bear with Queen (Freddie on vocals)
I have it on mp3.. actually, I love this version of the song. Freddie sings very high almost all the way.

- Let Me Live-Original Version...
I have it on CD.. Maybe the mp3 offered here is the one I uploaded some months (years?) ago?? :S

Anyway, it's a great Quiz...

Wiley, the Let Me Live MP3 I have is not the same as the one on Made In Heaven. But I completely agree with you about Polar Bear. I also have Goin' Back by Dusty Springfield (the non-Larry Lurex cover). You can check out my MP3 collection on my site.
