Hehe. Well, both songs started off by Roger and the distorted/swishy/sound effects thing is going on in both.

But yeah, perhaps.. I dunno. Roger is famous for being 'inspired' by other stuff he's involved with and creating something new out of it... half his solo song titles are lyrics from Queen songs.

I think Roger said A Kind Of Magic was like a One Vision 'part two' or something like that. I remember some interview of him saying something about the similarities between them.

I always liked the re-use of "I still love you" from Love of My Life when they did TATDOOL. I suppose, if it wasn't such a bad idea for a song title, they might've even used it as such.
