Okay, since discovering the all Queen radio stations on the web, does anyone else find the Mercury/Jackson tracks as disturbing as I? I admit I haven't heard any of them before, and now, I can't believe Freddie lowered his standards to record "State of Shock."

MJ was the biggest star in the world in those days... it was a golden opportunity for both Freddie and jackson.

Something tells me you were born in the nineties.

A collaboration between Freddie and Michael was about as inevitable as Queen and Bowie; Michael was insanely huge back then, and was bound to draw a huge gathering no matter what his name was put on.

All personal opinions of Mr. Jackson aside, of course...

still think the line he ad-libs in freddie's more to life than this

"we're at odds without children"

is a little disturbing with hindsight

shame that all three tracks
state of shock/more to life/victory weren't officially released

Yeah, and any song that John had written would've been magnificent with Michael's voice.

*sigh* John is such a good writer, don't you think? :)

Sorry Les, I was born in the 60's, and I've been into Queen for 30 years. I guess there were just some doors that I never opened along the way.
