I heard this song for the VERY first time on the Mercury Paradise website and I LOVE it!

I've never heard Freddie do a rock duet with a female singer. Who is the girl singing? She sounds great with Freddie, and Freddie sounds...AWESOME abd wonderful!

Anyone know who WROTE the music, and the lyrics? Did Freddie?

Also, is this movie soundtrack available/in print or is the song on the FM solo collection?

The other singer is Jo Dare.

I don't think this song was in the FM box, and I don't think there's a soundtrack available. And, I'm pretty sure it wasn't written by Freddie. Can anyone second these?

It was on the box set, and I believe it was written by Freddie (lyrics) and Mack (music).

There was also a soundtrack album for it. Check out http://www.queenpicturehall.com/albums/qrelzabou.shtml for more information.

Jo Dare is the person dressed like from the musical "Cats" in Fred's video? Cool!

Freddie & Jo sound wonderful together. They should have done more duets.

Pity that someone like you, who has one of the best boot review websites, wouldn't know this?;-)
