I know Freddie sings the first verse, but I'm confused about the other two. Which one does Brian sing and which one does Roger sing. The first time I heard it, I was thinking that Brian sang the second and Roger sang the third, but I'm not so sure anymore...

Roger was the second verse, then Brian. But here's a website that tells you which member sings what.

No problem. When you listen to the song more, you'll be able to tell Brian's voice from Roger's, as they're pretty different. But when I first started listening to Queen music, I had no clue who was singing what, so that website was perfect for me. :D

I was thinking that Brian was singing in the second verse because in "No One But You," his voice sounds very raspy, but then I listened to "No One But You" again, and I realized it sounded more like the third verse.

Yah, Brian's got a more solid lower range (stuff like "Sleeping on the Sidewalk") and after listening for a while, it gets easier to distinguish whose voice is whose. Of course, most distinctive is dearest Fred ... :)

I'm not sure two human males could have more different voices than Roger and Brian. Roger's is super raspy, high, and powerful, and Brian's is super smooth, lower, and weak.

Exactly. How could you confuse the two!? :/

You know, for a couple years, I thought Brian sang Dear Friends.

I also thought Brian sang Dear Friends at some point. And White Queen too (the very first part, I believed they had done it similar to Who Wants To Live Forever).

Regarding the difference of their voices: for many it`s easy because they hear them lots of times, in a similar way I can more or less pick the Bee Gees individual voices, while at the beginning they all sounded the same to me. Freddie`s "normal setting" is the one that everyone recognizes, but not so many can pick his voice when he`s singing very low or very high, because those parts aren`t so well-known


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.

It took me a while to figure out Freddie sang the part before the guitar solo in Sail Away Sweet Sister, now I think it's obvious.

I have absolutely no idea. Well, maybe cause I've only been a Queen fan for two months, and I only own Queen, Queen II, and the Greatest Hits collection...

Then compare Some Day One Day with Modern Times Rock and Roll to hear the differences between Brian and Roger.

Or The Night Comes Down and The Loser In The End. :)

So, which album are you thinking of getting next?

I'm gonna get them in order, so I'm getting Sheer Heart Attack next. My birthday is coming up, so I'm hoping my mom will get me Sheer Heart Attack, A Night At the Opera, and A Day At the Races.

My mistake. Guess I should listen to that album more often! On a different note, I wonder how that song would sound with Brian on lead vocals. It seems like one of the songs Brian would've chosen to sing himself, like Sail Away Sweet Sister and Long Away.
