Come on, Thijs, don't tell any lies. It was the B-side of 'Machines (Or Back To Humans)', and it's actually called 'Domo Origato (Kilroy)'. It's the only Queen song not to be released on CD, so finding it was pretty rare, but now some trickster leaked it onto the Internet, so everyone has it.

Wasn't it a John Deacon demo later done by Queen?


It started off as a John Deacon demo, but Roger collaborated with him later. The instrumentation for the song is:

Freddie: vocals, synth, guitar (the only other time Freddie played guitar on any song)
John: bass, guitar, synth
Roger: drums, programming

Brian doesn't feature on the song, as he and John were going through a well-publicised spat after Brian re-recorded all of John's bass parts on The Works. They never recovered their friendship.

I dont know what you guys are talking about

I wrote Mr. Roboto.


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?

I created Mr Roboto from parts of an old Sunbeam Mixmaster, a Lewyt vacuum cleaner, and an old Aston Martin that was abandoned in field near my house.

My first instinct was to post that you should turn in your Queen card and never listen to music again for that post but you're probably embarrassed and don't need me adding to it. We all do things like this post so it's not that bad.
