Dear Queen-fans!
Does anyone know who is singing the "stay my love" - part in Leaving home ain't easy. Brian? Roger? Freddie? Kate Bush? Please help us solve a bet...

Thanks user not visiting Queenzone.com

I'm pretty sure it was just Brian with special effects on his voice, it sort of sounds like him if you play close attention.


Yeah, some guy told me this... I wouldn't believe him, I just never acpected it to be Brian lol. I think your right though, with the special effects.

Definately Brian's. Freddie and Roger never sounded like that, and John never sings lead.

It also reminds me of his songs that he sang in Queen II.

I always thought it was Freddie, just the way he sings it seems like something Freddie would do,but with effects on the voice, it's obviously up for grabs who it really is.


Wear a rubber next time Freddie =(

Brian's voice also has that breakable cuality that's in that voice.

Now that I'm listening to the song again I have to say I'm sure it's Bri.

That's not set in stone of course.

It sort of sounds like Freddie, but when the mystery voice says "don't stray" it sounds like Brian.



LeroyBrown, I happen to have great set of "ears" ok? Trust me when I say it's Freddie.

It is Brian's voice...it's just filtered through a vocoder...lots of singers use it to get different effects.

Yeah, it's Brian. Though, it wasn't done with a vocoder. They just slowed down the tape and had Brian record his part and then sped it back up to normal speed, giving Brian's voice a female quality.

I did the same thing for my cover version of Leavin' Home and it turned out about the same:

It's Brian. All of the vocals on that song were sung by Dr May. Brian himself said it was him through tape manipulation.

The band never used vocoders before 1980.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.
