Queen should have nominated a fan to cut bits out of their studio songs...for example take a night at the opera and the prophets song...if they had ran that by a fan, most fans (i'm guessing) would tell them to take out that stupid middle bit of 'people do u hear me.......' and tell them condense the song to make it into a great song.

I like that song (the good bits) but dont listen to it as i hate fast forwarding that bit...

Or another song for example white queen....piano would have worked better on that...i mean they could have condensed them into a short and tight song like john lennons imagine. Imagine if that song had a stupid middle section or whatever.

I'm sure there's other fans out there like me who think the same

What a silly comment, as most fans are not successful multi-platinum selling musicians, and not in any position to advise otherwise - and no, I do not think so.

I think you have been watching too much 'X-Factor'.

So John you'd gladly listen to the prophet song with those voices...like if you had to showcase queen for one minute and played that i think people would be rather disappointed. BTW people have good tastes in music and that is stupid

piano piano more piano on later albums. songs like the miracle and even the show must go on (latter hasa great ynth riff but it would be better piano). Maybeeven Innuendo with a subtle piano instead of a subtle synth.

Queen songs don't need to be improved. They are works of art, each and every one of them.

you have not managed to make one single solitary sensible or well-considered post in your time here - my guess is it's because you are a stupid c**t
why don't you f**k off to "xfactorZone forum" - your banal and vaccuous utterings would probably be a most welcome and highly advanced change for a place like that - either that or ask "nurse" to increase your meds....

There is one song that has to be improved by cuting a stupid part away:

Gimme The Prize. It would have been great if it wasn't for all the damn dialouge.

I've always felt the same about the Flash Gordon soundtrack.

My personal taste is that you should learn to spell and not hit the "Post message" button quite so much.

Nevertheless, "purely on music", I'd like to hear the underlying musical theory behind your statement.

If you are going to speak and you wish that people don't find you annoying, either QUOTE A POST or indicate to whom you are writing.

Also, try to make sense. If English is not your native language, fine - but you'll only get better by practising.

If I try to decipher what you wrote, I'm going to guess you're saying something about the "ah-ah-ah- people can you hear me" part "sucks".

It IS taste. It IS music - unless it's really a pair of socks, then I'm sorry, I was misinformed.

Thankfully, your personal taste does not decide what goes or stays in Queen's music. It is up to the taste of the song-writer.

You see, they wanted to cut "Bohemian Rhapsody". I heard John Deacon did a cut. Would you like that ?

Think about it this way - if you wrote a song and recorded it - would you want some fucktwat who knows NOTHING about the song or why you wrote it or the feeling in it to come in and make arbitrary edits based on their "taste" ?

Perhaps you should try creating something of your own. It may do wonders to help you understand the creative process and why some people just don't want "help" (such as someone else putting strokes onto a painting - different than constructive criticism which can be "taken or left") or some random person to screw around with what they've worked so hard on.



agreed. personally the 'ah-ah' part would rock in the beggining as a build up! its actually beautiful. how would oyu be able to do those harmonies? not easily thats for sure...

not everyone likes certain parts but i dont believe they should be touched.


why pay the visit when the visit is free?

the middle part of The "prophet song" is brilliant. I love Every single second of it. Why do you like the middle section of Bo Rhap, but not the prophet song?...Brian wrote the song as a whole, but from what I'v heard freddie added some bits to the middle section.

I suppose it was put there for a reason and with a function, as an integral part of the feeling and the meaning of the song. Were it removed, the song would become something different, and it would no longer say the things the author(s) wanted to say.

In general, what makes you presume a generic fan could possibly know better than the author (or know at all) about meaning and function and reason and aim of a musician's piece of work?

I am not sure that there is even one single fan alive or dead that would agree with you about the Prophet Song. That middle part as you call it is the best part of the song and the section that ultimately sets it apart from the usual.

I'm with you on the releasing alternate versions to old songs part. I don't want them to re-do stuff so much as release the longtime promised anthologies containing alternate studio takes. A few songs that may or may not exist, but seems reasonable to think is out there, that I would like to hear would be:

39' - Freddie singing lead
We Will Rock You - Fast
Staying Power - all guitar like the live MK track
Sail Away Sweet Sister - Freddie on lead
Brighton Rock - Alternate takes focusing on Brian's delay harmonies
In the Lap of the Gods Revisited - guitar version like at Wembley '86
Save Me - Brian singing lead
etc.
