okay guys and girls, i heard an amaizing song on the radio like 2 days ago and now that i am searching for it all melody and lyrics escape me. When the song started I instantly thought i was listening to a beatles song, it was soft piano for the most part and the vocals where very high in pitch but soft. after a min. or two it became apparent that this was no beatles song but Queen, so now i search in vane for this remarkable song. Obviously this is going to be nearly impossible but does this ring a bell with anyone?

thanks in advance for any help you can offer,

You know, there's a Queen song that sounds like Beatles to me...if I could only remember it.

LOL.

Seriously, though. I'll see if I can track it down.



P.S. - Random, and not exactly related to this, but I've always thought that "Thank God it's Christmas" has a definite John Lennon feel to it.

hit the wrong button and made a new post, thanks for the help i know its not much to go on at all, the song was so good, and if i remember correctly the entire song was rather soft and high pitched. the content lyricly also if i remember correctly seemed rather reflective but i cant remember any specifics =/

well, the most beatles-esch somg I can think of is "life is real" but i cant see that being played on the radio... it starts with piano and the fred comes in with "guilt stains, on my pillow..."
... honestly thats really kind of difficult to say because Queen probably have a BILLION songs and probably more than half of them have pretty piano and a high voice. I'd go to, if you have it, itunes, and listen to previews of songs under QUEEN and see if you can find what you are lookin for.

good luck.

im still working on listening to the suggestions so far but i did check the lyrics for them and they dont seem to be ringing a bell, for some reason i think he mentions something about doing something on his own or being on his own, not sure this might be more harmful than helpful,

Okay, the song I was thinking of definitely doesn't match your description, and they wouldn't have played it on the radio, anyway. Sorry.


(But some of "Long Away" has a Beatles vibe to me. Go figure. I suppose it's mostly the guitar sounds and the chords at the beginning, and before the refrains).

He's teasing. :)

He's talking about track 13 of "Made in Heaven."

I know it's, it's, it's... damm, I forgot.
If you heard it on the radio it was probably a single release. What country do you live in? Can't think of any Beatle-sounding Queen songs though.
Perhaps 'Long Away'?

I'll confess that I've often thought Paul McCartney could sing "Good Company," though.

(Does that mean Brian could sing "When I'm 64?")

Yeah, okay - In know that was totally random.

I'd best leave now. :D

I'm just trying to think of what song they may actually play on the air nowadays.
