Dennis Daja He sings it awful.
This version simply sucks.


I disagree I also think Don't Stop Me Now is done quite well.

I agree icefire, that is my favorite version as well.
Freddie ad libs the melody a bit in the second verse. Brian's solo is just fantastic. Very well done.

I don't really like Spread Your Wings live, I prefer the NOTW version. However, I think '39 on Live Killers is brilliant.

Well he can't reach the notes can he? But I think there's a charm there.

I love listening to Spread Your Wings on Live Killers.

The audience participation also helps bring it to life for me.

Brighton Rock was also beautiful on it.

Perhaps some of us may be slightly mentally impaired? No, not really... hopefully not.

Couldn't disagree more...easily one of Queen's best songs, I personally, like this song better than ANYTHING on the always overated Queen 2 album ( I can already hear the boo's ) ..... this MIGHT BE John's best song.

whats so good about it?

you really think this is better then "you're my best friend" "Another one bites the dust" "misfire" "in only 7 days"


this isnt even better then "need your loving tonight"


if it was so good then why did only reach #34 in the uk singles chart...the b-side, "sheer heart attack" should have been the A-side.....really bad song...

How can you guys say live killers suck?

IMHO, Freddie in Live Killers > any concert after it!

Here, in this 1978-1979 era, Freddie's voice is still similar to his 70's voice. After 1979. Freddie's voice gradually gets worse!

I've have to agree with the orignal poster that this version of SYW is great but not the best ,but the Whole of side 3 is brilliant DON'T STOP ME NOW is simply better than the studio cut and IMO the best ever brighton rock solo i've ever heard.


Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

well i am not good at identificating all those overdubbings and so. that must be why i find live killers great-sounding and don't get why it's being so criticized. as was mentioned impressive performance of LMEY or '39 or SYW and brighton rock just don't seem to match with the criticism to me. once again maybe it's because i don't notice all the 'clever bits' added to an original record.
