Got to be Spread Your Wings from Live Killers. Always thought the NOTW version faded out rather weakly in relation to the rest of the song. On LK the guitar solo at the end is the business.

To turn my weary eyes for home.

Somebody To Love is definitely one of my favorites. The entire band's got amazing energy on that track. White Queen, Save Me and One Vision are good, too.

Action This Day!

They performed it extraordinarily well compared to the studio version, which was good already. Roger's vocals are very strong, you can hear him clearly. And the bass is fantastic.

Queen did a nice job with that.

We can only bow to the here and now

I love both one at "Hammy'75" and one at "Earl's'77". I love Freddie's ad-lib in it!

Stone Cold Crazy at "Rainbow'74" is so great!

In first place that must be 'Somebody to love', it's just great, I love it!! I also like: 'We will rock you' (fast version), 'Acion this day', 'Save me', 'Tie your mother down' and 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. All of these songs are imo best played on the On Fire DVD.


I will love Freddie Mercury untill I f***ing die!!!!!! (and even after that)

These are my favourites:

1. Crazy Little Thing Called Love (because of the instrumental part in the middle)
2. White Queen ( Live at the Rainbow 1974)
3. Now I'm Here
4. The rock 'n roll medleys, especially Tutti Frutti and Jailhouse Rock.
5. Spread Your Wings
