Hello, I have a question... I hope someone here can tell me the answer... I downloaded "Is This The World We Created?" from Live Aid '85... and it seems there was an incident in the middle of the song... does anybody know what really happened?

I think there were some problems during the broadcast. But the DVD contains a good version of this song.


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

Feedback. Horrible, horrible feedback; on the DVD you can even see Freddie and Brian (who seems pissed off about that) look to their left as if to ask, "Yo, what the fuck."

Really?
I didn't think they were able to hear that.
If they could, they did an amazing job of ignoring it. Good for them.
I'm glad we have the DVD with the clean audio!

I think it went squealing through their monitors, just like when Brian started his solo on 'Crazy Little Thing', which you can hear on the DVD. Well, parts of it, at least.

They used this song as a bridge for the big finalle! If you listen carefully the crew are trying to rearange the stage for Paul McCartney and all the artists of the day, so they asked Brian and Freddie to play that number. It´s the same as 46664 of Nelson Mandela. Between the Rock numbers they would fill with acoustic ones, so they could prepare the stage for the next act.

I was hoping they would leave the talking in on the DVD so you didnt hear Freds cock up when he sings the word 'home'.


I love you for your mind baby give me your body.

somebody said something like
'so you still can't hear anything on the radio mikes dave'
plus much rustling and other unpleasant sounds
