I got a feeling that a lot of people here don't like my posts lol. And they definitely won't like this one, probably because they're closed minded and never noticed it.

Anyways at the lyrics "you make me smile when I'm just about to cry" the multi tracked vocals of Freddie singing along clearly says "when I'm just about to die". He makes it a poiunt to emphasize it to. Now geniuses, don't respond until you actually listen to it because if you do you're gonna make an ass out of yourself. It's about the 27 second mark in the full demo.

You people are just deaf or not listening to the 4 minute 16 second demo. But that's okay, I'm not here to judge or say I'm more observant or smarter than someone else.... even though just to keep it real, I think I am.

I have to admit, I was gonna rubbish this claim after taking a listen. But you know, there's definitely something there after he sings cry. But I'm really not sure if it is the word die.

I'm not 100% comfortable delivering this info, but it's just me trying to lend a hand in these kind of situations.

Peace,
Adam.

P.S. Mind you, there are no multi-tracked vocals at the part kd mentions...

Um, no. I just have better ears than you or anyone else who says it's not their because it obviously is if you want me to be honest. Maybe it helps if you listen with stereo headphones, I don't know. It's not like it's buried in the mix deep.

Brian wouldn't know, I don't think. Since it's a Freddie demo.

Demo? I didn't listen to the demo, I listened to the album track. I did some processing and was able to hear the subtle vocal bit.

Oh and Brian would know.

Peace,

I knew you were going to say something like that.

Some may not have the demo and probably don't feel like finding seeders and the rapidshare links may have dropped so here's the demo. It's 28 seconds in to the song. After the two vocal tracks sing "cry" a 3rd sings the die line. And it's not me singing it lol. If it were I'd be the best Freddie impersonator on the planet.

Thanks for that Kd, I've never heard a full demo before. Just the snippet version.

And yes, it's the same word I hear in the album version. But yes, it's lower in the album version.

Peace,
Adam.

I must admit that after hearing the demo 3 times with headphones you can hear him say something that sounds like die. On the other hand seeing as it's a multitrack vocal mix he could've just made a small mistake on the 2e take, mumbeling the last word.

I have very good ears too (I'm a musician, what else would you expect, hahaha) and I must admit that I hear 'die' too there. It's indeed quite obvious to hear I think.

On the other hand that doesn't have to mean it is some cryptic message or something like that.
I've heard people using this kind of sentences before when talking/singing about how loved ones can make them happy.

p.s. I'm gonna do something even more tricky: I think that all vocals are singing 'DIE' on that line, not only the one that can be heard a little bit after the other ones.
