I`m just listening to The Cross` version of that song, but with Freddie`s vocals on it. Some time ago I saw a snippet of Roger singing that song. It was to short to actually get to know whether it`s better or not. So I would like to know what`s your opinion about Roger singing this song and maybe where I can find that version.

Well, one is on the US version of the Shove It album the other one is on the European version.
Both versions are on the single...

And of course I prefer Freddies version!

Roger's version was released as a single and on the US edition of Shove It. Freddie's version with The Cross was on the British edition of Shove It, I think. I like it a lot and I always found the MIH Queen version less interesting, although Freddie's voclas are awesome.

I think the Cross version with Freddie is the best one.

I have Shove it on CD where Roger sings and Shove it on vinyl where Freddie sings. I much prefer The Cross version to be quite honest.

Roger's version is the finest Queen solo single ever. End of discussion.

Ok, it's about 5MB so it might take a while to download. Roger's on its way.

Duly noted, but semantics aside, it was the finest song performed by a Queen member outside of Queen.

I must admit that the Cross version is really better because it has it`s own special atmosphere, much more moving than the Queen version.
I also thing that this is Roger`s best singing he`d ever done.

The Moonshine Mix is the best version. All the versions mixed together with a choir.

i think, the cross's version with roger in vocals is a good song, but the queen's version is better.


the logical one is good to think, but it does not to live
