Watched this on the Video Hits 2 dvd the other day.

Very enjoyable - you can really hear the guitar without the horn arrangement.

Do you like it?

Not even close to as good as the studio version, but still very enjoyable. Looking forward to the Milton Keynes CD/DVD release.

It's your opinion. I prefer the live version with the guitars...

Yeah, that would be nice. I really should start seriously looking for a stand-alone DTS decoder.

Actually there is John's guitar too, because he didn't play bass on it and used usual guitar.

I read somewhere that the group preferred the live one rather than the studio one because it was heavier.


Actually, Brian said that SP sounded even better live than in the studio, and stronger. But it doesn`t mean the rest of the band thought so. Perhaps they did, perhaps they didn`t


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

for all those who say SP sounds better live because they used more guitar and less synth - there is a demo version of SP without any synths, but it sounds even less enjoyable as the version with synths. I like the live version more, but especially because of the drum pattern, and it is played slightly faster (i mean....)


Special thanks to Arif Mardin who arranged and produced some hot and spacey horns on "Staying Power" ;-)

The studio version in an incredible acheivement, mixing trademark Queen with other styles. The horns, the multiple Freddie vocal tracks and the slower tempo make the studio version superior in my eyes.

Live was good, but a lot of the elements that made the song special in the first place were absent.

In that version there are synths: bass is done in keyboards as in all other versions. Also there`s a drum machine

This song is a pain in the neck for Roger. I've heard that this song was exhausting to play for Roger, just like Now I'm Here. But he did it very well. It's really a great drum-track, Roger is drumming fantastically here, just great.
