I recently heard on the net that there is a dvd with Brian's children or daughter singing who wants to live forever, and that there is a version released on a single of his daughter Louisa. I can't find the single's title and I'd like to hear what it sounds like. Both versions would be nice to hear.
Thanks a lot.

Hmmmm.... I don't know if it's his daughter, but there is an "easter egg" in the GVH II that shows two kids singing it. It's adorable. :) I've forgotten how to activeate it, though.. Sorry!

BBMDA charity single;

there is a demo around (audio only) sung by Louisa May;

the released version was sung by two
children (Belinda Meeson & Ian Gillet IIRC) selected through a specific audition; the
video for this version is a bonus on the DVD

Thanks to all who have helped me. So the charity single is Ian and Belinda and there is a single by Louisa. There is another version I heard as well. It sounds like an older girl and it says brian's daughter in the title. The louisa version is really cute and isn't there a song with Emily May somewhere as well?

On the first disc choose "Who Wants To Live Forever" and click enter while you see the single cover and you get an alternative version with Highlander footage.

On the second disc stop the DVD so that the menu disappears and choose track 13 from your remote control and hit play - you'll get the charity version sung by Belinda and Ian.

Hope that helps.

Okay. So it isn't Brian's son and daughter on the easter egg. Okay. The web site I checked on that was wrong. A friend of mine gave me the louisa may file if anyone wants to hear it. Just look in my profile and add my email to your msn. It's very cute. I also have another version a friend sent me, but I can't tell the difference between Ian or belinda. Lol.

DO you have a blind spot where the words "officially" & "released" are concerned?

taking your question seriously - two daughters: Emily, who should be 18 or 19 now, and Louisa, who is a few years older (and married); unfortunately, they both resemble their father quite a lot.

Do you think WWTLF version by sung Brian´s daughter at the age of about 5? I thought It´s Emily. Or it exists some new version?

Sorry, I do not understand your question very well.

Louisa was born in 1981, and Emily in 1987.

The song was originally written for the movie Highlander in 1986, when Louisa was 5 y.o. and Emily was not born yet.

The BBMDA version was recorded by Ian and Belinda and released in Summer 1989, when Louisa was 8 y.o. and Emily was 6 y.o.

The demo version that appears on the 12" single is credited to Louisa, and could have been recorded any time between 1986 and 1989, when Louisa was between the ages of 5 and 8.

I listened to that version several years ago (I did not know it had been officially relelased, but someone gave me an mp3): it sounds clearly like a very little girl, much younger than Ian and Belinda.

My guess is that Brian was involved in the project "WWTLF sung by children" early in 1989 and initially thought to have his elder daughter Louisa sing his song; then he realised she was not good enough for a commercial release and auditioned some young singers for the final recording. But he wanted to keep Louisa's demo on the record as a "filler".

Still, mine is only a guess - I only know for sure that it is Louisa and that she was between the ages of 5 and 8.

Louisa's version of that song is so cute. I can't tell the difference between Ian or Belinda in the second one. Smile.

-Lol, that doesn't make any sense xD When Louisa was 5, Emily wasn't born, but when she was 8, Emily was 6? Haha :P

Sorry, but couldn't help commenting it :b

I've never heard that version!? Ö
Adn btw, if you wanna watch the version with Belinda and Ian, just go search on youtube.com =D
