It's very good song and much better than "album" songs like She Makes Me or Some Day One Day, IMHO.

If you're talking about sprucing up old b-sides as per My Life has Been Saved, then I Go Crazy has my vote.

You're a harsh little fellow aren't you, well I for one love that song, not sure what's meant by sprucing it up, but I always wished it had made the album rather than Coming Soon.

You are talking about A Human Body, not Soul Brother, I hope? :P

I honestly can't stand the vocals. The lyrics are ok, the arrangement is ok, but the vocals are IMHO second only to the Hints-Of-Innuendo demo of Delilah when it comes to horrid.

I guess I know what you mean but strangely I have aways found them rather appealing. Go figure!

Yeah, I guess my problem with it is that I don't think it sounds remotely professional. More like a drunken joke-session.

Fred probably just heard Brian's demo of The Call
(originally penned for inclusion on Hot Space) I guess before entering the studio. Didn't I read he was gonna call it 'Who you gonna call?'but then scrapped it after hearing someone in the next studio recording something similar?

Freddie's vocals on Soul Brother are impressive, regardless of the quality of the song. I like it because it sounds like they're having lots of fun. Somebody set somebody the challenge of squeezing in as many Queen song references as possible. I've always found it reassuring somehow when I hear and see them all playing around like this.
