What do you think about No-one but you?

I think it´s a very great song. I love Brian´s voice. It´s one of new Queen songs after Freddie´s death and last song with John. What a pity Bri and Rog don´t sing this song on tour.

I think the song itself is over-emotional tripe. I don't find it moving at all. For moving, watch the 'Days of our Lives' video.

It was however nice to see John back again.

It would have been later than the tribute concert, post 1995? I think if you did a google search you could find out when and if it was played live.

It was played by Queen two times (not counting its inclusion on Brian's Another World 1998 tour):

1) At the Freddie Mercury Tribute 2001 concert at Oceans, London, UK

2) Amsterdam 2002 as mentioned above

If you guys would like, I can upload the whole Queen setlist from the Oceans 2001 gig (on MP3) for you all to download, since it's not commonly available atm.

Of course that "No-one but you" can't be compared to "These are the days of our lives". But it's still a very nice song. I love it. And I'm a proud owner of CD-single.

I always used to get all tingly when Brian sings 'There's a face at the window' ;-)

Ok, THAT IS a little bit "over-emotional".

I think that it is his feelings and if he wants to be very emotional then good for him.

If I don't compare No One But You to another Queen song...it is an ok song, but taken on it's own merit it's quite moving, sad, meaningful...and the last couple of verses between Brian & Roger tear me up every time. I think Roger, even more than Brian almost sounds like he's trying to hold back his own tears when singing this. He sounds pretty shaken up when I listen to it.

But....for sheer BRILLIANCE as Queen's finest hour and their most exquisite, understated, plaintive, touching, emotional, sublime, bittersweet sentiment and elegiac reflection on the meaning of life and love...all you QueenZoners KNOW by now...that my favorite song and video is These Are The Days Of Our Lives.

I put on Flix 3 for the first time in years the other day.

I still stand by my opinion on NOBY... it just comes across as false, a bit tacky actually. Like I said, too over sentimental for me.

The DOOL video was still genuinley moving though. It surprised me how moving it was. Hadn't seen it in quite a few years. What a wonderful video and song to end it all on.

Am uploading the first 5 out of 6 tracks from the setlist in one zip file to RapidShare.

Will upload the last track (NOBY) after that zip file finishes uploading, which will take a while, as it's 23.3MB in size
