Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy was part of the medley during the 1977 tour. After that it got dropped from the set I think. The closest thing to a full live version is the BBC Top of the Pops performance.

They never did the 'Shoop Shoop Song'.

Well, you weren't specific.

*Long Away was played in rehearsals but for some reason they dropped it from the setlist, and it got never played on stage. Maybe because they thought it wouldn't work

*Sleeping on the Sidewalk and Las Palabras de Amor were played only once, so they're not on the list

*I don't count Spikes keyboard solo as the Machines song

When exactly was Las Palabras de Amor played live? Some short guitar improvisation in Milton Keynes doesn't count, does it?

No it doesn't count. I believe they played it complete only once. Some expert has to help us, John Stuart perhaps?

God Save The Queen?
OK, it's not a Queen song, but sometime it was perfomed live?



And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...

I think either Fun It should count (for the verse Fred sung sometimes as intro to KYA) or Black Queen shouldn`t (since the small portion they played of it was in percentage just as much as the mentioned Fun It fragment)


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.

Sleeping On The Sidewalk - must have been the first day of the tour (Portland) or I also heard something about Toronto (about 8th gig of tour).

ThomasQuinn - would you be a bit more specific about your two live versions of Las Palabras De Amor?

Damn. If there's no recordings then there's no more meaning to life...*commits regicide*

Too bad there aren't any recordings, that's a great song by Brizzer.

So Rock It was preformed live?
Does anyone know who did the main vocals if it was
Roger who sang or Freddie because it'd look a likkle wierd if he was just standing there doing nothing (or playing the tamberine?)

Fred sang it, with Roger on harmonies, same as Modern Times Rock N Roll
