Hey there, i'm wondering what the last Queen song was, with Freddie obviously. But not counting the Made In Heaven album, because most songs are from the mid 80s, or are bits of Freddies voice or even like Mother Love that wasn't quite finished. :(
So basically the last Freddie song that was recorded on the Innuendo album.
I asked my mother (also a Queen fan) and she thinks that its The Show Must Go On. I have no idea.. is it?

I'm pretty sure Freddie's first verse there on Mother Love was the final take for Mr. Mercury.

The show must go on was NOT the last song Freddie sang on.

I doubt The Show Must Go On was the last Innuendo track to be recorded. His vocals sound too powerful, too perfect. I think there were more takes involved with that song than Freddie could manage at the end of Innuendo.


Ah, but this isn't entirely true. Brian says Freddie got some things first take. However this might also prove what you say (about TSMGO being an earlier song) - if he was slightly healthier earlier on, he might've been able to manage things like that better.

Who knows.

As Brian has said, during the last time that Freddie was able to be in the studio recording, the 3 others nearly slept in the studio. They waited for Freddie, that he would call and say that he could come for some takes. And one day the did "Mother love". Freddie wasn't in that shape that he could complete the song, so he said that they would do that another time, but he didn't come back to the studio anymore. So "Mother Love" is surely the last song Freddie sang on. And that's why Brian sings the last verse..

"A Winters Tale" was the last song that Freddie wrote, but not the last one recorded.

Without having access to the vaults or master tapes where they would date demos, takes or masters we don't have a clue.

Having read the question correctly & mirroring a previous comment. I don't think anyone will know what was the last vocal recorded purely on the Innuendo album without inside information or a Beatle style anthology.

What I've read is Delilah was one of the earliest tracks worked on early summer 1989, this is only my own speculation perhaps All Gods People may have been early what with Barcelona demo connections (would make sense) Again just my opinion i think The Hitman may have been a later recording as his voice is slightly "thinner" on that, not unlike A Winters Tale

That wasn't the question.

All songs on Innuendo were written by "QUEEN".  It's a TRICK QUESTION. 

The answer is:  None.

Are you being silly?

I quote "So basically the last Freddie song that was recorded on the Innuendo album."

Its pretty self explanatory

definitely the last song Freddie sang was definitely Mother Love.
Which was written sometime in the summer of 1991 and sung in October or November 1991.
Winter's Tale is actually the last song written by Freddie which was at the end of January or February
Love 1991.Mother I read that the latest shooting took place four weeks before Freddie's death.
