I don't know if it was the last song he wrote, but it always feels like it was the last one when I listen to it. It's kinda got a goodbye feel to it. I really love it and I think it's better than a few songs on Innuendo, such as Ride the wild wind or All God's People.

Is that really important? The bottom line is that both tracks were on the official LAST Queen studio album ever! Who really cares that it's not on "Innuendo". I think it's rather fitting that they're on "Made In Heaven", personally.

It was probably written in 1990, but that doesn't necessarily mean it was recorded in 1990.

yea that was the last song freddie ever wrote(winters tale)
and mother love was wrote in 1991 !.. freddie i think recorded his vocals for that track something like 2months before he died and brian had to finish the last verse of the song for obvious reasons,, but i fucking love that song!!
