Anyone else noticed that the version of 'The Hero' at the end of Flash Gordon the movie has an ever so different lead vocal (complete with a sort of yeah-yeah) intro? Also I'm pretty sure that the version of the title tune at the beginning of the movie is an earlier version to that on the album. The piano seems higher in the mix, plus Brian's vocal at the end of the track is different (it's double tracked whereas on the album I'm not sure it is).

Not surprising really. Film versions are rarely the same finished versions you'll hear on soundtracks.
