Definitely the single version. It's great.

1989. The good simple song, on MIH it sounds a little bit pathetic.

Wow... What a tough one. I love both versions equally and for different reasons.

I agree with Adam. MIH has a better kick to it.

What does Freddie say on the End part of the '89 version? Couldn't understand it...
btw heard it yesterday for the first time and it was nice to hear the slighly different vocal parts done by Fred :) :) But i also understand they weren't included on the Made in heaven version.

I think the MIH one is better produced, but I still prefer the Miracle one because I like guitar more than digital piano


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.

Er... the miracle one has the digital piano. MIH has, at least, a more realistic sounding piano.

Peace,

Yes the digital piano is better in MIH, but I mean, the intro is played in guitar in the B-Side, and I like that more than the (also beautiful) piano + string ensemble

'89 by a mile. It sounds like Queen music. The MIH version sounds like it could be written and performed by any generic middle-of-the-road band. The guitar gave it personality.

I sadly haven't heard the '89 version and I wasn't mad on the '95 one. Is there anywhere I can download it?

I prefer the 89 version. The MIH version is
so 'overproduced'.
