Here is a unreleased Roger Taylor song called "Celebration". Not bad...I think. Enjoy!

"Celebration: a 1984 Roger Taylor song from the Strange Frontier sessions. The song has a similar sound as the 1987 The Cross sound, but it isn't by The Cross!"

You´re right. Never thought that, because it sounds so The Cross like!

Just coz a website says something doesn't mean it's right.
Sounds very very much like Peter Noone singing at the end. (or was it Clay? Can never remember which one sang Better Things). Either way, I'm sure this is a Cross song. And a good one too!

Maybe it is a Roger Taylor song, but the musicians are The Cross members...I´m pretty sure!

I don´t belive this, because the sound of Roger Taylor´s album is completly different as this song. I don´t think that Roger Taylor change his "sound work" for only this song.

OMG... Why do you bring Serry back?! Let me go to heaven peacefully!

The song was available in 1984, the track was available for collectors before Strange Frontier release even! End of discussion, you may have a lot of theories, thoughts, but that's a fact!

I hear Freddie's voice in Touch The Sky ("yeahhh!"), so Freddie was alive in 1994?!

Please, maybri, can you edit the title of this post from "The Cross" to "Roger Taylor - Strange Frontier session"?

I think it will help, creating less confusion.



This song CANNOT BE A CROSS SONG because it was AVAILABLE in 1984.

I hope that everyone will understand this.

That is the strangest thing to me. If it was available in 1984...how can we hear another Cross member singing too? If it's from 1984 (as I'm sure it is when you say so)it's ok, but tell us please who else is singing there with the same voice as Peter Noone from the Cross.

Roger spent a year recording the Strange Frontier material, between 1983 and 1984, according to interviews of the time. One song he wrote during this period became a Queen song ("Radio Ga Ga"). The material on the album is cohesive sounding because he had a lot to chose from. Consider the diversity of the material that didn't make it on and you see that "Celebration" doesn't stand out THAT much. "I Can't Get You Out Of My Head" sounds the least like a like a Roger-song. He went funky and distorted his voice for "Two Sharp Pencils", his cover of "Keep On Runnin'" is very rock 'n' roll. All the synthier-sound songs landed on the album.
When "Celebration" was recorded, he was probably in an experimental mood, or had a different engineer on hand.
All reliable accounts point to it being recorded circa 1983 (not 1984, which was the album's release...easy mistake to make).
Should definitive evidence arise that it was recorded later (or earlier!), we'll make our adjusments and move on. All this arguing will get us nowhere.
