I actually really enjoy it.

I like it, not my favourite, but it's OK. The "don't drink and drive the car"-part sounds great!

"Don't loose your head" is one of my all time favourites. I even [kind of slightly] crashed my car once due to alcohol while listening to it (really). :)

As for "Pain is so close to pleasure", try the US 12" version, it almost saves the track.

Cheers,

Peter, some fans hates all songs from 'AKOM' even! I can't see any obvious reasons for it.

I like DLYH

I do too! Freddie's vocals are very powerful "Hear What I say!"

'Don't Lose Your Head' is the weakest song on the album. Underneath all the crappy production and generic mid-eighties pop sound on A Kind Of Magic (coincidentally, I prefer the single version of 'Pain Is So Close To Pleasure' over the album version), there really is a great set of songs, but 'Don't Lose Your Head' is probably the worst. Oddly enough, I like 'A Dozen Red Roses For My Darling', which would've been a better inclusion.

Like many, I don't really like the lyrics but I like the instruments. Freddie's voice sounds awesome, though.

And for the record, I like AKOM :-)

I like it


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.

Hey, bigc!

Nevermind, asking is ok! By the way, I don't know what's with people down here, that they hate anybody who asks for something.

I would certainly hand it out to you, but I've just moved in with my wife and most of my CDs are back at my parents'. That is one of them. If you don't get it untill the weekend, please let me know, and I'll get it there for you. My e-mail is:

arnaldosilveiraATuolDOTcomDOTbr

(replace the "DOT" thing with dots and "AT" with the @ simbol).

Cheers,

Ogre-

well...i don't dislike it...but it's surely not one of my favourites. It sounds a bit like a filler. Repetetive lyrics...yep great voice but Freddie could make a poor song great with his voice.
my faves from AKOM are Gimme the prize, Princes of the universe, one year of love and who wants to live forever.
Yes, and i also think that 'a dozen red roses for my darling' sounds better than 'don't love your head'. more emphatic i think

You noticed that too, huh? I for one really like it, but I know of a couple of people who don't like it very much or at all.

Like somebody said, it sounds a little bit like a filler. The lyrics are pretty poor and don't really mean much. But the music is quite good.
