It was one of my happiest discoveries when I started getting heavily into Queen. I love it :)

I used to listen to this song every morning last year when getting ready. It's beautiful.

Reminds me so much of Las Palabras De Amor (very similar song development), but ten times better. For some reason I can't like Las Palabras De Amor very much.

1 - Oooohhh, I'm proud I probably gave the main input for the return of Whirled Peas... Hehehe... Welcome back!!! I like the new colour indeed more than the two-tinted ColdEarth :-)

2 - Teo Torriatte is surely in my top 5... I've always loved that song a lot... I'm even going to record it with my band and get it included into the EP... Maybe I'll post it in the Stage of the Champion, OK?

Can't say I've paid a great deal of attention to it. I'm usually re-listening to TYMD, YTMBA and TMW. Must listen to it later on.

What do I think? I think it's a great song, as all the other ones written by Brian in the period of A Night At The Opera and A Day At The Races. Long Away is also great, and has a wonderful bass line, and Brian's voice is fabulous!

I love Teo Torriatte!! One of my all time favourites, especially because of the Japanese lines. They should've done more of that kind of things...

For me it's a weird song... When I listen to it and I would say like; 'yeah, it's okay', but later that day I'm singing this song the whole time and I'm just amazed how great it is! Strange right?

I love this song! I even made something at school with Teo Torriatte on it. Got a B+ though. Still!
I like the part when Freddie goes "When I'm gone" right after the japanese line. That's my favorite part. Now I have to listen to it.

Yes, albyboy.. I changed back just for you ;)

There's just so much going on in this song... I think my favorite part is the whole 'When I'm gone, they'll say we're all fools..' verse.. how Freddie's vocal gets so powerful and then the choir comes in.. the song is everything from sweet and light to haunting, to powerful. It's even got the built-in homage to Aerosmith.
