I just bought Made In Heaven and I think it's superb!!! But what is the last song supposed to be? It's not listed in the sleeve notes and it's over 22 minutes long! Does anyone know if it has any significance?

I believe that it's supposed to be a sonic tribute to Freddie. If you turn it up loud at certain parts you can faintly hear him laughing...

I like to think about it as a little piece of music to reflect, think about Queen and in particular Freddie its quite nice IMO :)

Hmmm... i suppose its a kind of tribute- Its very haunting if you listen to it the whole way through- if you have enough time. The whole album is really good though- I love I was Born To Love You!!

If you record it on your pc, then play it backwards and speed it up to around 509% you'll notice it sounds like a very early demo of Mother Love.

I read somewhere that Brian described it as Freddie going to heaven...but that could well be bollocks, you know how reliable my sources are.


God wants you to send me some money.

Pim: Never come across that theory before - but it sounds interesting.
I confess to technical incompetence - any chance of providing a link for the IT Challenged - or are you having a wind-up?

I always found it quite tedious.
Don't listen to it when you're trying to fall asleep, there's a strange percussion thing somewhere around 8-10 minutes that almost caused me to make a mess.

lol, I love that track.

When I first listened to it I immediately thought it was a sort of Requiem to Freddie.

And yes, I put it while I was falling asleep and I got scared!!

Hey, it is quite nice but, too dance to me... It could've been more soft. But anyway, great mix, congratulations!!!!!

btw, the One Vision - Alternate Lyrics link doesn't work. I'd like to hear that song!

Rainmustfall, put on headphones, turn up the volume, close your eyes and relax...I'm sure you'll find out what they mean ;-))

When I first heard this last bit of MIH (headphones and all), I thought hmm..what a strange long end and I found it rather awful, it was like one of those new age chill out cd's....but then I got hypnotized by it. I saw all these images of landscapes, clouds, etc. like a video clip all in my mind's eye. (which is normal for me I always visualize music so to say). At one point I felt like I was flying, or running over hills in the rain. And then suddenly there was a voice saying "are you running?" So that was very amazing and weird and it made me jump up.
In the end I listened to it several times and came to appreciate it, although I didn't like it much at all at first. But it indeed is very emotional, with a little imagination you can hear what Brian meant by 'Freddie going up to heaven'.
I think it's a nice way of describing this 'secret track'..

:)

On a semi related note, Does any one have any idea why they seperated the 12th track from the 11th?
