Freddie never wrote with Roger
Roger never wrote with John
John never wrote with Brian

I was just woundering.................

The songs credited as Queen are written by several members. But I doubt it means that 2 people would actually sit together and write. I think it's like one would start a basic idea and the other ones would add ideas

Oh God... I'm pretty sure that Freddie & Roger wrote together Dog With A Bone and John & Brian brought the first ideas for My Life Has Been Saved (specially John)
But on the last records they wrote together all the songs, except for a few cases...
All God's People by Mercury/Moran from Barcelona, I Can't Live With You and Headlong by Brian from the solo album (at that time without a certain name), etc.


What album is the Dog With A Bone album? I don't think I know that song.

As far as I`m concerned MLHBS is just John, he did the demo and then David Richards helped him out with some keys and then Fred heard it, loved it and sang on it. That means Brian & Rog only got to know it at the end.

As for collaborations between Roger & Freddie: Innuendo, music by Freddie, lyrics by Roger, and You Don`t Fool Me, music by Roger, lyrics by Freddie

John & Roger or John & Brian: no as far as I know


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.

Hard to tell because if Roger asks John to play on his solo track - that means that John would do some of his own vision of bass parts, so he could be called as a co-writer.

And I think 'Killing Time' was wrote by Freddie and Roger.

I undestand what the threadstarter mean here. There are no albums which creits (Deacon/May), (Taylor,Deacon), (Taylor/Mercury) and so on...


Basically blind em and deaf em in the first 10 minutes, and while they are recovering from that put in the less good songs

Officially, KT doesn't list Mercury as a co-writer, nor is he mentioned in the sleeves for contributing the harmonic backing vocals in that song.

Yeah, I know, but the middle part of the song sounds like Freddie's composition-style...

Freddie and Roger would have killed each other due to creative differences before they had agreed on three notes.

Roger and John wouldn't have gotten anything done.

Brian and John would get into an argument about whether the song needed a guitar solo that would end only when Brian won the argument or the band broke up.

If you were a decent guitar player, and someone was throwing peanuts at you while playing... would YOU want to write songs with that bloke?

I think Rog & Fred wouldn`t kill each other. Depends on the situation. Remember Rog let Fred take away Radio & Magic, so I guess he could have let him arrange and/or wirte (or co-write) a short orchestral interlude for Killing Time. In a similar way perhaps Roger gave a couple of lines or something in Fred`s songs. Not always, but it could have happened

What about One Vision.... it was Roger's lyrics and his song at first... but when you see an interview with him, they're asking him about that song... and Rog says: "they've changed all the words" question:"who did?" Rog:"That rot of a Freddie!"

So... they did that together... and you can see them writing on it together in GVH2 just watch the dvd and you'll see....


"Fuck them darling, if they just don't get it!"

: What album is the Dog With A Bone? I don't think I know that song.


You can download it from here:
http://queenforeveryone.netfirms.com/english/mp3.htm
You'll find some other demos too, but, unfortunately, most of the mp3s aren't available anymore (or weren't when I've checked'em out last time). If Dog With a Bone is not there anymore, give me your mail and I'll send you an attachment...


I LOVE QUEEN!

But does that really count, since they were two songs (at least, the intro of a separate song) spliced together?
