I've been thinking about that for a long time, but something should be do, by the Queenzoners to make possible the release of "Was It All Worth It" as a single...most of the people here agree that this song should have been released and it smells single and video so much, that I think it should be released...if "that" version of Flash has been remixed and singled, I think that WIAWI should have a chance and for sure, in 2005, it would chart...think about a video...call me stupid for this idea, but this song is so good...

The remix of Inu-Liger should be used...

Well, it's a good song, but a bit late in the day for it to be released I think.

Unless PR re-records the vocal for a new Queen+PR album :-) (I AM joking...)

It´s a little bit out of context.
Can you imagine, release a single after 16 years of the album release, and remember "The Miracle" has 5 single releases from it.

They can`t release all their good songs as singles.

Take care

I personally think they should release "White Man". NOW!
Seriously, about 15 years too late... It's better than any ther song on "MIRACLE". so? Death On Two Legs" is one of their best songs EVER and it never was a single, so...

It wouldn't have done well at all as a single. The first verse is good, then the rest are totally too cheesy, borderline laughable. It should've been a single only in the minds of diehard fans. But that's not who you market singles for, you market singles for the public and the public wouldn't have bought it.

Well, WIAWI was "b-side" of Princes of the Universe single in 2000, wasn't it.

yes it was


She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

Death on Two Legs was technically released as a single - it was on Queen's First EP.

I love this song, but I don't think it would have much appeal to the charts...

GREAT "radio mix" by the way!

It got a lot of airplay in Canada....along with I Want It All.....definitely should have been then....and should be now whenever they put their next compilation together....always puzzles me why they don't release singles on these packages

I always thought it strange that the studio version of Love of my Life wasn't ever released as a single - I firmly believe that it would be ideal to release it at the time og the ANATO 30th Anniversary, and it would be a nice tribute to Freddie without being to mawkish

You know, you could be onto something there... What a good idea...

And use footage from one of their 70s concerts as a video for it. Or a montage of multiple performances of it set to the studio soundtrack. It would work perfectly.

That part sounds familiar... A bit like the video that was on Greatest Flix a few decades ago. :P

Absolutely, just as EMI saw the great quality and the universal appeal of The Invisible Man and Heaven For Everyone ;-P

The choice of MIH's fist single was so good they had to carry out a back up campaign that said "Sometimes You Need To Hear The Whole Album"!!!

However, I have absolutely no pb with great songs not being released as singles. It doesn't keep you from enjoying them, does it ?
