...and why they didn't play it live.
It's a great song, it could ROCK live.
Anyone got an answer?

There are so many they never played live, like Princes of the Universe (God knows WHY!!). Dead On Time is a very difficult song to sing -- Freddie's voice would have been in shreds in a concert after that one!
(I love the thunder at the end -- Brian risked his life taping a thunderstorm for posterity!)

Quite hard song to sing live and to play with only one guitar.


An interview? Oh, don't be ridiculous...

Maybe because they thought it wouldn't work on stage

I think if they played "Princes..." in every Magic Tour concert, Freddie's voice would have been shot, you know? :-( Shame, as it is a fabulous song!

POTU is such a powerful song it deserved at least one performance live and sadly never got one. Can you imagine the light show that would have gone with it -- OOH!!!

I'd've expected Christopher Lambert at every playing then. EVERY!
