After the song has been shared again (or demo actually), I've had a look at http://www.ultimatequeen.co.uk/Songs/unreleasedqueen.htm#feellike and if those lyrics have been transcribed correctly, don't you think this is showing first ideas of Let Me Live too?

I was wondering about it, because every now and then theories come up, by which we presume that songs originate in other songs. In Charge Of My Heart and Stealin' is such an example. But how far does that go? "Turn on the TV, let it drip right down in your eyes" from Sheer Heart Attack and Turn On The TV by Roger? Oh and I will not mention Soul Brother of course or Keep Yourself Alive and Dead On Time. :-) But really, what are your thoughts?

March of the Black Queen has the word "And" in it

Innuendo has that word too. I think it also connects


"On the first day Pim & Niek created a heavenly occupation. Pim & Niek blessed it and named it 'Loosch'."

Who needs you and Who wants to live forever both start with 'Who'... Must be a very strong connection.

But seriously.
I haven't heard Hangman that much but if I remember well there were some small riffs (or maybe only parts of riffs) that reminded of Ogre Battle. I think it was in the fast Hangman-part.

So much on that one. But you wouldn't believe how many people argue that In Charge Of My Heart and Stealin' belong together. Did anyone of you jokers have a look at the Feel Like lyrics though? Whatever...
And by the way...the question comes up sometimes, when was Let Me Live written...was it a Rod Stewart song first (John S. Stuart had this song as a demo in his Ultimate Collection thread for 1976 or something!), or a genuine Queen song... So I was actually asking a serious question.

I know.
But to me it's crystal clear that these two songs are related.
