yeah
am I the only person out there who LOVES this song??
seriously, its been over a month and i cannot stop listening to it. The melody is awesome and Freddie sounds fricken fantastic in it.. is it just me or were some of his last songs (sob!) some of his best vocally?? eg. show must go on!!
anyway, weird thing is, on the Greatest Hits 2 DVD commentary, Brian and Roger didnt seem to like the song at all... I honestly don't get it!
am i alone in my love for this song?
let me know lovelies.
xx

I think its the video they don't like rather than the song, isn't it?

No Roger said the song was Queen going throught the motions- very of it's time.

For me it's a bit of a watershed song. I remember watching for the first time and thinking how much weight Freddie had lost since the I Want it All & Breakthu vids. I started to wonder about the rumours...................

Anyway, I must have liked the video as I bought the Miracle EP just for Scandal as I had promo vids of the rest. One of the best songs on The Miracle.

I actually love the song, especially the bridge and the guitar solo.
I can also understand why Roger wasn't keen on it. From the perspective of a drummer, it must have been quite boring for him to play, unlike the drum part for a live version of Now Im Here.....


Innuendo or Kashmir? Both awesome!

No, I've made (a while ago) a remix between the two versions (normal and the 12" version)in the fanmix section. I'll upload it again.

mercurysparrow: i don't believe Brian does not like the song, since it's one of his songs.

mattsmith: Sorry to disappoint you and most of all you fans, but there is little real drum work in the Miracle album. It's mostly all programmed drums.

By the way... I LOVE the song. :)

AHH! I ADORE this song!! I just love how Freddie sings "here comes the bad news, open the flood gates!" I dunno, that bit just seems vocally powerful, I love this song.

Scandal is great. Now, I think I'll have to go give it a listen... It's been a while!

yay!

yeah, i think brian said the song meant a lot to him, coz of all the media shit he was going through at the time. but he agrees with roger in that it could have been a tad better done.

Yes This is one of my all time favourite queen songs, I think the video could have been a bit better but the video I really like anyway. I would love to hear this done in the paul rodgers and queen concert, I would even like a tribute band to cover this one.
