I could swear (from the first day I heard it) that the high pitched line: -I've had enough,............ (of this same old game....)
it's Brians voice singing the "I've" part(whether it's blended with Freddies or just inserted), but I don't know why, but I believe that, for some reason, Freddie's voice wasn't that clear/high/suitable etc.. and postproduction went in there...
If you listen carefully you will find that "that" very bit sounds VERY VERY much as Brians tone and pitch...

Just listened to the part you're talking about, and it sounds like Freddie to me.

While I understand what you're referring to and even heard what you're talking about, it's doubtful.

Peace,

That was one of the first things I noticed too while listening to ML. That "Iiiiii've tone" sounds very much like Brian


I think I'll be Clint Eastwood

Jimi Hendrix he was good

Let's try William the Conqueror

It's Freddie and Brian mixed into one voice, I think.

NO its JUST freddie , how can you think that its brian?? it doesnt even sound like brian, brian doesnt have that power in his voice. Cant you hear that its freddies voice?

you think freddie cant sing that by his own?? you think freddie cant sing "I've had enough" but can sing the rest like " Out in the city in the cold world outside"?? which is much higher vocals

Maybe its all brian that sings mother love?? lol

This reminds me of the thing with a Hot Space track which people insist is Brian for like one or two words.. I think it's Put Out The Fire? So silly I've forgotten. :-P

Don't get me wrong. I believe Freddie could pull that off anytime, but in his state at the time, but in that particular second ("I've)it sounds to me very Brian like. The very first half second of the high-pitched voice.
Theres is A LOT of post production in that album for many reasons and one of them Freddie being very ill at that time. And Mother love I belive it was a constructed song because it was Freddie's last one. His voice was fine BUT for short periods due to his illness. I really believe that theres some Brian input on that particular note, but its my humble & personal opinion....:)

I think most likely Brian would go in falsetto for that note.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

No he wouldn't Seb. I'm surprised to see you think that considering how in-depth your site usually is.

Peace,

I mean not that he CAN`T do that note without falsetto. But I guess he WOULD try it that way instead. But of course "would" and "definately did" is very different, as well as "I guess" and "I bet my life that...". It`s just a comment

It's just freddie in my opinion.


Freddie: "Yes, we'll have a great big cock fly over the crowd!"

Roadies: "Yeah! Great Idea!"

Freddie: "And it will fly into a great big mouth with a moustache!"

Exactly, Virtuoso. Listen to tracks from Another World and it's pretty clear he'd have no trouble with that bit.
