Which song was Freddie talking about when he asked David Richards for this?

Yeah, it was "wildebeest" (I had to look up the spelling in a dictionary)-you can hear it in the Magic Years video. I think Freddie was talking about a bridge in One Vision though, but I could be wrong as I haven't watched it in a long time. I think it was something like "I want to hear a herd of wildebeest swinging from one side of the room to other." One would imagine a producer was used to these kind of declarations from Freddie and simply said "O.K.-widebeest...no problem"!
