According to Peter Freestone's book Party is Roger's, Kashoggi's Ship is Freddie's, Miracle is a true studio collaborative creation.

The other's I either don't know about or have read somewhere on the internet but I don't know if I remember right and if the sources were truthful, so I'd rather not comment :)

These are just guesses but Let me live sounds a bit Briany and a bit Rogery,while the other three that Mr Drowse didn't specify sound extremely Freddie-like. Plus the two of those that come from Made in Heaven don't have many lyrics and are quite repeative which was probably all he had the energy for by then. There's a touch of Brian in the music so mabe he had a hand in that.

on the radio 1 interview in 1989 roger said he was away skiing when the other 3 composed and recorded Party, then added 'but we were all there for Kashoggi's'



we've no ancestral halls, no haughty portraits on our walls, no family monuments at all, unless it's my cousin sheila's stupendous clevage.
