Well, I always wondered what the spoken part just before the fast version of WWRY is all about. I can hear someone talking about Brahma and Buddha, that's ok, but what the heck has this in common with the actual song? I mean it's not a song about the cosmogony or the Indian gods... what possible link could it be between the song and those statements about Buddha? And is it Freddie who's saying all that? I have the feeling it's his voice, but it looks like it's a bit modified in the studio...

That was the leak from different studio (Radio 4 if I remeber well)- a woman reading Herman Hesse'"Siddartha". They decided not to erease it and edited it so it fitted in between slow and fast version.

The dialogue at the start is a reading from "Siddartha" by Herman Hesse - not sure who read it for the session, but it's not a member of the band.

Thank you. I would have never imagined it was a radio leak :)
