Hello! Just wonderin' what song did you guys and gals think followed BoRhap best in concert? My vote will always go to Tie Your Mother Down. The crowd always perked up after the rock part of BoRhap, and TYMD was a natural extension of that high energy. Just look at the WWRY DVD (Montreal '81). The crowd, as we all know, sat on their hands all show, until the rock part of BoRhap, then they continued to keep the energy up during TYMD. I know other songs, such as Hammer to Fall, Stone Cold Crazy and Radio GaGa were used in setlists to follow BoRhap, but in my opinion at least, TYMD took the prize as best follow-up.
It takes a mighty good song to follow up the centerpiece of the Queen show, as BoRhap invariably always was.

Probably a B-side. Couldn't say. I'm stupid!

I dunno about live shows, but for personal studio compilations, Intro/Tie Your Mother Down works loverly when its opening gong replaces the one which ends Bo Rhap, as a crossfade.
