Does anyone know which individual members actually wrote each song on these last 2 studio records? I know Brian wrote "The Show Must Go On". Freddie Wrote "Delilah".

Perfect! Thank you so much. I agree on "My Life Has Been Saved" being John's best.

why do u figure john and freddie wrote so many songs together as a writing duo and there weren't as many collaborations between other band members? does that make sense?

The Hitman probably was written by Freddie, mostly. As Sebastian says--notice how the song is acylic, which was a Freddie-only characteristic... and it was Fred that wrote the heaviest of their material (Ogre Battle, LMEY)...

Great info :) i was always wondering about these too :) there are some typical ones, where you can guess - like Was It All Worth It, The Miracle, I'm Going Slightly Mad are Freddie's etc. But there are some very interesting revelations too - amazing, that Roger wrote TATDOOL :)

I agree too - My Life Has Been Saved is John's best song ever :)

And indeed - Freddie wrote alot of Queen's heavy material - even in the 80's - eg. Princes of the Universe :)


That time will come, 1 day youll see, when we can all be friends

To be fair, theoretically, a song being acyclic isn`t cathegorically Freddie`s. Mercury could have arranged the form but not neccesarily created the music or lyrics. In this case he did write the music at least (not the arrangements, but the progressions), but it could have been easily been someone else.


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.
