Mr. Bad Guy or Made In Heaven's IWBTLU
Which one would you choose?
For me it's the MIH one.

The Made In Heaven one for me, has more of a rock type feel to it :) The Mr Bad Guy version is more of a Disco track

I rather the Mr. Bad Guy version of I Was Born to Love You.

And I rather the Freddie version of Mr. Bad Guy instead of Queen. Especially the bassoon part at the end. I can just picture Dr. Hibbert saying 'how delightfully satirical'.

Well, I would choose Queen's ver of IWBTLY. But I'm quite partial to the extended version from the Bad Guy remixes.

Peace,
Adam.

I never cared much for the solo version, though the video for that is fun. Recently I've fallen in love with Queen's version, mostly after getting the karaoke mix which really showcases how much was put into it. So much energy and fun. I know Freddie would have loved it.

I like both, but I think Queen's version is better. It just sounds fatter and more complete.

No, they only reworked I Was Born To Love You and did some cuts on Living On My Own (the Freddie Mercury Album version sounds however better than the MBG version).
In what concerns IWBTLY... I'd rather the Queen version, I dunno why, Freddie's version is fine too, but Queen's has that unique feeling proper only to their work together - THAT feeling that flows throughout all their music and which made them such a great band.


I LOVE QUEEN!

I prefer The Mr.Bad Guy version,it's more Freddiesh and in line with the spirit of the song.
But most of all I like the embryonic pianistic version featured in the FM solo collection box set.


Freddie Mercury.

A wonderful human being and simply the greatest singer,performer and composer of our times.

The music makes a big difference, that's why I like the MIH version best.
I am not a big fan of the MBG album. All those discosounds make me nervous.

I like them both for different reasons. So, I guess I really just can't choose!

I like the MIH version better.
Those 80's synths on the original just doesn't sound well.

Although I liked the videoclip, especially when Freddie is chasing that girl.

MIH version is better for me. I never liked too much Freddie’s ’Mr. Bad Guy’ solo album. It is almost pure disco.


But now it's time to be gone - forever...

Only two times has a Queen song brought tears to my eyes. Once was in 1995 when I heard the Queen version of IWBTLY. The overall feeling of the four of them rocking away one more time kinda overwhelmed me, even though they never played all together on this song.
The second time, incidentally, was upon hearing the WWRY London cast version of No One But You on my way home from Boston. It was just beautiful. If you had told me beforehand that a woman singing that song in a musical would move me to emotions like that, I would have thought you were one wave short of a shipwreck! But it was beautifully performed. A really wonderful version of that song.

was the MIH version done while FM was still alive?
it sounds a bit of a jumble...ie bits of his "90/91 voice" and bits of his MBG vocal...what went down?
same applies to MIH(the queen albumtrack)version i think
