I always wondered what the songs queen didn't play live would have sounded like and also if they fitted in to their reportoire, songs like:

Nevermore Brlliant ballad.
Tenement funster( i always thought this could work as a medley until now i'm here)
Dear friends A Lovely ballad also part of a medley.
Love of my life ( studio version as it stands) would be a highlight for me for sure).
Long away and you and i would be interesting to hear.

All dead all dead would be great live with either freddie brian or both singing lead.

This next one amazes me to the core DEAD ON TIME why oh why was this never played live it has fast rock and great solos aplenty on this, it has to be a tragedy that we never hear this live.

Sail away sweet sister would have been good in a save me type of way with again either taken lead vocals.

Dancer yet again plenty of guitar and i can just imagine freddie strutting and romping on stage with this rocker.

Man on the prowl would have been fun in a jammin session type with plenty of adlibs for good measure.

Gimme the prize i really don't know about this one but princes of the universe could have been done and it would have been great.

That's all the tracks i'm not taken into account of The miracle innuendo and made in heaven as history tells a tragic end.

What's you're thoughts on what would and would not work?


Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

till the end of time

till the end of time.

Long Away, Love Of My Life, have both been played, and Dead On Time was apparently rehearsed but Freddie couldn't handle the singing.

Headlong. I can imagine the Brixton version mixed with freddies vocal.. like the love kills fake live from the FM boxset.

or:
Have Headlong surge in from Tear it Up.... after Fredie says "youre driving me ga ga" at the end, brians guitar is feedbacking, and roger just starts hammering out the bass drum of it...

The one rocking song i wish i could hear freddie & the boys sing live would be "Breakthru". The song sounds gd on the studio version but LIVE it would be huge especially freddie's voice.

Much as I love "Dear Friends" - it's too short.
Same thing with "Nevermore." You sneeze, and you miss it.

"Love of My Life" studio version. Too high for Freddie to sing effectively "live," night after night, in that higher key of F major. He would surely have taken most of it down, or changed the melody to suit.

JMO.

Dead On Time would have sounded great as an opener (just after Procession maybe)....
