Good evening all you rock & rollers! ;-)

Which Queen song contains absolutely no background vocals?

'Spread Your Wings' would be another one.

are we looking for singles only, or any Queen track with no BGVs?

Freddie doubles his own voice for the choruses of TATDOOL.. would that be disqualified? Because they didn't leave any vocal in the karaoke mix. Actually 'Break Free' is the same way for selected phrases.. I think it's all Freddie and there's absolutely none on the karaoke mix.

Out of the 35 karaoke mixes, they've all been mentioned.. those with no vocals at all, but 'Spread Your Wings' still has "fly with me" at the end for some reason.

Interesting! I have to admit, I thought (!) Spread your wings is the only one without any background vocals. I forgot Rain must fall - ... hell, it is hard to tell without listening to it for a while...it's not really one of my favorites...
Is there a Queen song without Brian playing or singing anything? Hoo, next one :)

In the Karaoke mix of SYW at 1:30 you can hear Freddie sing: "He spends his evenings...". Just a bad mix I think. (Therefore "fly with me" is in the karaoke mix)

Yeah I think that's just because it's so screamy it leaked to another track.

"It`s a Beautiful Day" definitely doesn`t have any backing vocals. And "I`m Going Slightly Mad" is also in 100% sung by Freddie.

'I Want To Break Free" ahs got chorus in the part "god knows"

Slightly Mad has some 'oooh ooohs' though, even if it's Freddie it's background.. they're still in the karaoke mix too :-P I consider that more of a background vocal than a double-tracked vocal saying the same thing as the lead, such as with Break Free... but I dunno :)

I ain't listened to the song in a while, but what about 'Nevermore'? I don't think that had backing vocals...

hi folks
here`s King Mercury to answer this question
i`ve think about it a little while and i guess AOBTD have no background vocals
Maybe i`m wrong, but it`s hard to find a queen song with no background vocals...this is a good topic!
There can be another song with no BGVs..."is this the world we created"
i think there are more songs whit no BGVs
