Let's take a look at what we know about the recording of the Mr. Bad Guy-era tracks. What conclusions can we draw about when certain tracks were started and finished?

I include the various Queen tour dates as to show when Freddie likely wasn't working in the studio.

The one guess I make in this is "More To Life" with Michael Jackson. If it's wrong, let's see where it goes.
