This has probably been done before, so apologies in advance - but, what is your ultimate favorite live version of a Queen song?

One of mine is 'Teo Torriate' from Osaka, April 1979 - Brian is playing piano, and the first chorus coupled with the chord Brian hits at 3:34 just makes it truly magical. I find it very touching.

Aye, old Lester has a bit of emotion stuffed away somewhere. That's neither here nor there.

Go on, share!

Now I'm Here at Hammersmith, 1979. Infused with a little bit of extra energy. Wonderful.

Good to see you back, GH!

And I'll agree with 'White Queen' from Earls Court. Fantastic version.

But as I said in the "given up" topic, I'll come back regularly after I see this place improve as a whole. I hope the day comes.

That was me. :) Only the first 30 seconds or so are from Frankfurt, and then it switches to another show.

Yeah, I remember the link ! Great Analysis ! I've read it several times and tried to figure it out on the record. VERY interesting to read ! Has someone from QP or even a bandmember ever commented your studies ?

Thanks for the kind words. :) Nope, I haven't heard much about it, but I do know that Greg Brooks has looked at it, and perhaps Jim Beach.

Tie Your Mother Down, Fan Club Xmas 1990. First time Brian sang it, and it was just immense. He'd done Let Me Out, and in 88 they hadn't done any Queen songs at a similar event, so there was no clue what was coming, and he just ripped into the start of it.

Still makes me smile.

Is this the Cross show from 12-7-90, you mean?

Funny you mention this one... as it could have been a lot better than it is! Clearly Bri, Rog, and John wanted to get back into Another One Bites The Dust after Jailhouse, to give it the "AOBTD-Jailhouse-AOBTD reprise" effect, but Freddie kept shouting "end it!". A pity, really. That would've been such an amazing thing had they ended it properly.
