What do you get when you mix together a bunch of random, poorly recorded songs, A crazy yelping love child of Michael Jackson and David Bowie, and a twelve year old style computer bitmap cover?
Ahh, yes.
You get Queen "Pre-Ordained."
Really, the thing should be re-titled as "Smile songs that don't make sense, and some weird dude, Peter Straker: The guy who sings like he's being goosed."
'Cause that's what it really is.

Half of the songs, which are ironically sung by Peter Straker, aren't even coherent.
What's he saying?
What was that last lyric?
Oh yes, that's right; no one knows.
Didn't you know?
They're supposed to be incoherent babbling songs for your amusment.
Well fuck that.
And fuck amusment.
When you market a "pre ordained" song catalogue of Queen, you better make sure that A)It's Queen, and B)It's actually PRE ordained.

The songs by Peter Straker were ACTUALLY recorded in 1978. Hmmm....doesn't seem like pre-ordained shit to me. Shit? Yes.
But NOT pre ordained shit.
Needless to say, they still sucked.

Cheers

Then you are not only wise, but also saving yourself from ailing vomit. Hey, trust me...that's what it induces (the cd, that is).
Cheers

Just above and to the right of this thread you will see a button which says 'search'.

I am not a killjoy (or small talking bad-guy), it's just that the continual repetition is becoming timetable frequent.

I agree. It is the biggest waste of 14 bucks I ever had to deal with....not to mention the little pamphlet is something that I could have done just as easily on Microsoft Word.
