Since the search function does not work, I'll post this question here:


What is Brian's beef with the song "Don't Stop Me Now"?

On "Greatest Video Hits 1" Roger makes mention of this.

Thanks.

It's about the video - not the song.

Apparently the director wanted the entire band to stick closer together while filming and since they were using the JAZZ tour stage for the shoot Brian would have preferred them being as they are onstage (live) and using the entire set for the shoot and not just center stage. I can see his point because with such a great stage and lighting rig none of it was really justified in the video.

I didnt think it was all bad cos its better than some of the covers of DSMN that ive heard! And since McFly did the cover loads of people i know have started liking Queen and they hated them before!


Exactly.

Shame if that's true... it's one of his best solo's, and one of Queen's best songs.

I hope its not because he thinks he had such a small part in it :S I can't think of Brian being that petty though.


17, and obsessed with Queen lol

easily One of my personal favorites, but what's the big deal?.....Brian doesn't have to like every song written by freddie, roger and john. I'm sure freddie wasn't crazy about every single song written by brian. It's not a big deal.

I wonder what the Jazz sessions were like, especially deciding what songs went on the album seeing as Freddie hated "Dreamers Ball" and Brian hated "Don't Stop me Now".

Funnily enough there was a repeat of Top Gear on BBC3 earlier talking about the top 5 songs being voted for and DSMN was shown. Pretty cool.

Btw, don't read too much into Jeremy's comment as he's always taking the piss and using sarcasm. Brian doesn't really hate the song. Someone posted a thread about this in the last year and it was found to be bumpkuss. Unfortunately, this rumour still manages to show up.

Theoretically, Brian (or anybody else for that matter) *could* hate the song, and we simply don't know it. Still, yes, the comment's about the video.


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.
