Having read the 'best solo songs' thread, I'm surprised that EIFL isn't anywhere in it of note. I absolutely love the haunting feel of the song and just the sheer concept of it. What does everyone else think?

I'm surprised that EIFL with Montsy's vocal ain't available on 'the FM Box Set' (I mean the original version - not a demo)!

Sorry for the misunderstanding... I meant the version on the Freddie Mercury Album that only features Freddie and not Monserrat

It's actually just the melody of Ensueno from the Barcelona album, which is much prettier.

Whenever I hear EIFL, I think how he must have sometimes scared his cats making noises like that.

It's one of my favourite tracks.I think Freddie has one of the best male falsetto ever and the song has a wonderful melodie.He sings like a soprano.A mastrerpiece.


Freddie Mercury.

A wonderful human being and simply the greatest singer,performer and composer of our times.

I don't know if he played on something on Horns Of Doom, 'cause it was written by Richards and could be playing by him, no matter - I just said that if Horns Of Doom has right to be in the box set, so why Freddie's song, but with Montsy's voice - can't?

Anyway I'd like to have it on the box set.
