Length - of all Brian's live guitar solos (except LK version perhaps) a.k.a. "Brighton Rock solo"

Make 'I Can't Live With You' a bit shorter, it drags on too much at the end.

Make Nevermore have a guitar solo and a bit longer, but then again, maybe not because it's a brilliant song the way it is.

Make the whole climatic rock bit in The Miracle a bit more cleaner, i find it's far too messy, as it would lead to the final part (that time will come, one day you'll see....) a bit more effectively.

Id "rock up" Staying Power so it sounds closer to the live version.

Id add the intro to ADATR to every Queen album (it's so freakin cool)

Id add "Let's Go Crazy" to The Works and shorten "Machines" and make it just an intro.

Every album would have at least one song that ends with an explosion. Definitely One Vision needs one after the fried chicken line... (gimme gimme fried chicken.... BOOOOOMM!!!)

Id' move White Queen onto side Black and move Funny How Love Is to side white.

I'd remove the sappy ending to "The Miracle" and end with the Brian May solo.

I'll try to think of some more...

OH GOD!! I SURE HAVE AN ANSWER FOR THAT ONE!!

Get rid of those stupid synths on "Play The Game". What kind of fuckin' Pac-Man arcade sounds are those? Someone should have told Queen not to hire Mack as a producer. He nearly fucked up the whole song.

I would definitely make Love Makin' Love a full fledged Queen song, complete with BHM guitar solo and RMT backing vocals.

I would have given Queen more time and money to make NOTW and try to make it sound fuller and a little less rushed.

There are quite a few I can think of...
I would also make Staying Power more like the LATB version
Take some of the "Go Ons" off the end of TSMGO.
Make the bassline on Under Pressure louder.
Make Tenement Funster & Modern Times Rock N' Roll longer.

Some more'll come to me, I'm sure...



This can't end well.

Extend Sperad Your Wings with a fast section, as on BBC Sessions version.

Un-write the whole of Hot Space, with the exception of Under Pressure.

Take the 'Now I Knows' out of Prophet's Song.

Make Sweet Lady faster, like live version

Give March Of The Black Queen a stand alone ending.

Release a live CD of every tour.


Remember to deliver with the speed of light

A little bit of love and joy

I would make I Can't Live With You a bit heavier by placing the guitar much higher in the mix, I would remove the synths from One Vision and again bring the guitar a bit further forward. Perhpas, I would quicken Death On Two Legs just a tad to make it sound even more acidic and remove the horrid piano bit from All God's people.

The 'Kind of a Kind of Magic' Guitar solo should have been incorporated into the original.

Make these three songs longer:

1. Nevermore <--- and also in a slower tempo!
2. Dear Friends
3. A Winter's Tale


Change that crappy "instrumental" in "Action This Day" to something else - *anything* else. Better yet, just leave it out.

"Seven Seas of Rhye" - it's too out of tune for my taste.
