Where is it possible to obtain the version of this song (I think its the single) where the voices that play during the beginning of the song are present?

My first port of call is always e-bay if that is any use to you.

I actually just want to know if it is available on any official CD, because I once had it on my computer illegaly downloaded, but I can't find it anywhere now.

The ones that played at the QPR concerts and *sort of* played during the Magic tour, but aren't on the album version.

12" Collection CD, UK A Kind of Magic CD, US Capitol Records A Kind of Magic CD. And also I believe you can hear these voices on original version - it's on Live At Wembley DVD.

The "voices" on the QPR AKOM intro is as used on LAW, which are most closely replicated on the Highlander version, available on either the Highlander DVD or the LAW DVD picture gallery.

I got it too. Can't remember how though (perhaps someone was illegally sharing it or something, i don't know)

The opening is sort of reminiscent to the AKOM opening heard on ROTC. Listen, and you'll hear it too.

On a bare and weathered shore
