Check out this 5 sec. snippet from Roger Taylor's 1984 released "I Cry For you" - single remix. After Roger sings 'For you', Freddie can be heard singing the same. This suggests Freddie was around during Taylor's Strange Frontier sessions (I'm pretty sure his vocals are on the choir part of "killing Time" as well). I wonder what the full extent of his involvement was - Archivists?

Yes, I think that Freddie even helped Roger composing Killing Time, uncredited. So it's natural if he's on the backing vocals.

Freddie Mercury worked in the song "Killing time"...that´s for sure, no doubt about it!!
If you pay attention you´ll se at the end of the song...all the chorus are similar (style) to Freddie solo song "Men made paradise"....If I am not wrong the song is credited to Roger and also says something about Freddie collaboration!...

I don't think that's Freddie.

I think it's Roger with some reverb.

Not that this will stop the conspiracy theorists around here, who feel that an absence of contradiction is confirmation...

I had never before heard of a possible Freddie contribution to this song, so I was able to listen without bias, but I really hear Freddie echoeing the words "for you" right after Roger sings the chorus. It's his voice, his timbre and his style alright.

The single version of "I Cry For You" DOES definetely feature Freddie (albeit uncredited). Not only he says "foor you", but he also adds some low voices.

The 'for you' Freddie vocal is very low in the mix and I presume it was originally a guide vocal which leaked through into this rare single remix version (as opposed to the album or extended version where it cannot be heard at all).

I wonder if these songs started as Queen songs in which case the archives may feature versions with more prominent Freddie vocals - could any Queen specialist or archivists answer that?
