*If your just going to yell at me for being a Newbie, please don't answer*

This is just a question that I've pondered for a while and even tried to look for the answer. What IS IT with the end of "One Vision"? Are they saying "One Vision" or "Fried Chicken"? I've looked at Queen lyrics pages and all of them say "One Vision". But whatever version I listen to, it sounds like "Fried Chicken". Am I delusional or does anyone else hear it? Can anyone tell me why they say "fried chicken?"

It's 'fried chicken'.

See, this is an example of a topic where the poster shouldn't be persecuted... and I feel bad they felt they were required to put up that disclaimer.

The ending is NOT fried chicken. Because after that there`s a "vision" loop and then "god works in mysterious ways". So THAT is the last line


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.

I also think it's fried chicken, cool that you posted my question again.


I think the millionaire waltz is the most Queen gay song.

According to Jim Huttons book, he was the one who persuaded Freddie to leave the Fried Chicken part in.

Yeah it was, I remember Roger calling me on a very warm day in '85. And he asked me if they could use Fried Chicken in a song. I agreed, only if they would release a few boxsets in the next 20 years. The band agreed


They did use Fried Chicken, but they never released the boxsets - The bastards!

Jim bet Freddie that he wouldn't sing "Fried Chicken" at the end of the song but he did and Jim was most surprised. Then he apparently got him to leave it in and the rest is history. Of some sort.

Considering that Jim Hutton is not a very good source to rely on, I'll go with what Phoebe (Peter Freestone to you newbies) said in his book. The band would sometimes get bored recording and would do a lot of funny stuff (watch the One Vision documentary on GVH2) and maybe on a whim, Freddie said the line we all know and love and decided to keep it but never bothered to officially change the lyric. And if anyone still quests after changed lyrics, Machines (Or Back To Humans) has a slight alteration. "It ain't no place for rock n roll" was originally (according to the US CD booklet) "It ain't no place for you and me."
