Nothing too surprising with this, just a few extended bits here and there, but a nice mix, I think:-

Bravo! Improved a bit on an already great song! I like the "new" beginning...

I like the quasi-instrumental second verse as well.

Here comes the end.....lets see.........

Vocal effect wwas pretty cool there. Not overdone. Ooooh, It's Bliss!!!

It's one of the bonus tracks on the DVD only version of 'Greatest Karaoke Hits'.

It's a very nice listen Mr. Lord :) Technically superb. My only criticism would be that the instrumental section seemed to come a bit early and was a bit long.. I was thinking during the final verse that it might have been cool to use the bit after the solo which contains some nice dreamy guitar bits instead, but technically it might be a challenge to come out of it. Still very nice though :)

----

About 'Innuendo': Some answer with "It wouldn't be right" or "Can you imagine trying to sing that?" as if it was out of the question to include it. But 'Headlong' was also excluded and that would have made a very fun karaoke track with its silly lyrics :) It later appeared on 'The Eye' but the mix was so much different.

'Killer Queen' was also excluded. In fact I think that's why "Keep Yourself Alive" was added originally (the original idea was a mirror of Greatest Flix & Greatest Flix II which is why the songs are in that order).

Justin Shirley Smith said that they were under major time constraints and remixed these in "about one mix per hour" (http://www.brianmay.com/queen/thegame/technical.html) so perhaps technical problems got in the way of including these tracks originally. I can understand a song like Innuendo being so complex that it couldn't be put together as a karaoke in the alloted time. Though the credits in the 2004 karaoke sets indicate that most Miracle, Innuendo and MIH 'karaoke' tracks were ready-made during those sessions, perhaps the very ones Freddie put his final vocal to (edit: except MIH, before someone points out that he did his final vocals early) so maybe they had these already and just didn't want to let all of the 'hits' songs out in this form.

All speculation and I apologize for hijacking your thread Lord Fickle :)

It's easy to finagle around your own de-vocalized version using a program like DART Karaoke Studio.

Does that work any better than Audition's vocal removal tools, which I have to say, I have never had very good results with? Without access to the original multi tracks, I have doubts that this could be done very effectively on a home PC.

You won't quite get a studio perfect sound in a de-vocalled track. This isn't to say it's unusable. I've heard some neat results, from people who know what they're doing. Unfortunately, that means - Not Me.

I had great results with "It's Late" but I had to edit back in the guitar solo cuz it took that out too.

It all depends on the way the song was mixed originally. Results are always going to be different from song to song. I think "Fight From The Inside" comes out fairly good too, but there's a real instrumental on 'The Eye' anyway so it's pointless.

I'm glad they didn't call me. I was five at the time. Dunno how old Fickle would've been though.. Hehe.
