Just a quick question, did Queen ever do this song live. Like, on the works tour or something.

Yes, they did. I have an audio clip from 1984. Roger sang the very high notes in this live version. Take care!!!!!

Seemed like Freddie always forgot the odd line during this song right?

They played it nearly all of the time on The Works tour. The best one, I think, is at Birmingham where Freddie says that he will kill himself if he doesn't meet the first high note in the song!

I like this song live APART from the begining ("I don't want my freedom..." line)- when he was hitting felsetto it was awful, when he tried to hit it with full voice- it was even worse...

I won't be surprised if someone else would say one more time "Yes, they've played it"...

Yeah, sometimes he forgot the line "it's a chance you have to take with love".

Tokyo 5-9-85... a perfect night. Freddie nails this song, and all the others. It's in my top 10 Queen concerts. Brussels 84 is a good one too, before Freddie roasted his voice.

Although I didn't download it, the clip posted above is mostly likely from the Tokyo show two nights later, the officially-released one.

It's on Live in Rio
Fred's vocal is decidely ropey - forgot words - high notes a significant problem
Not one of their best on stage
