On Live At Wembley, Brian sings a couple of lines of this song and, IMO, his voice sounds much better suited for this song than Freddie's. Obviously I know this isn't a Queen song, but does anyone know of a version Queen may have played of this with Brian on lead vocal (I know that it is unlikely)? Thanks.


This can't end well.

What you hear is what there is. In theory Freddie should have sung it, but he kept forgetting the words so Brian would help out/take over

Nah, I think it was just a shared lead vocal. Since in every 25 or so concerts Brian sang this part.

It's not that Freddie didn't know the lyrics

Wrong, that was Brian's little part in the song....and please note that even though Freddie had already been singing for 90 minutes by this point in the show, his voice still overpowers Brian's and Roger's combined during this laid back 1950's covers..... proving once again there was a reason why he was the lead singer.

I agree. I've always thought that. Brian's voice is very mellow, as was Ricky Nelson's, and seemed to fit the song perfectly.
