Hi, I just downloaded a demo called Butterfly, no idea if its official or not, so I wont share, etc.. but its basically Freddie playing piano and you can hear him humming very faintly, and the version I have for some reason has Roger and Brian talking in the middle. Does anybody else have this??

Also, what is it a demo from, as in which album was it intended for? Thanks very much, cheers.

It's actually Brian playing and mumbling.. it comes from the making of One Vision documentary, originally on 'The Magic Years' titled 'In The Studio' and a slightly different version of the documentary on Greatest Video Hits 2.

He was just fiddling around but to me it seems to resemble what would become "Who Wants to Live Forever" :)

So yeah, it's sorta official though it should be acceptable to post brief excerpts from documentaries... but don't ask me. :-P

I've never known why everybody relates it to WWTLF. Actually I don't notice any clear similitude, indeed if I were to draw resemblances, I probably would say 'Butterfly' sounds a little bit like 'All Dead'.

But it's all right, the world would be so dull if we all had the same opinion ;)


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.

It sounds more like the chords of 'Save Me' to me, but I'm tone deaf, so what do I know.

I've always related it to "One Year of Love". Pity they never finished the bloody thing. Sounds good.
