What are you referring to? The only "song" I've seen with that title was something FriedChicken was working on. He played around with some lyric bits of Freddie and made this mix from it. Is that what you've heard?

Yeah, thats it. Is it from one take or mixed together from other stuff?

If my memory serves me correctly, it's something recorded by Fried. He then snipped some Freddie bits and inserted them where they seemed to work.

I can't find the original thread in the fan mix forum, so, I guess it's gone. For now...cause I'm sure Fried will post it here for you.

So, the answer is basically, it's a fan fabrication. NOT a real Fred/Queen song. The lyrics have come from an existing song, e.g. love of my life or Play The Game, etc. etc.

If memory serves, FriedChicken put it together using bits cobbled together from the DTS tracks on A Night At The Opera. Combined songs like Love of My Life and Bohemian Rhapsody.... err.. stuff like that??

I think it was done for some contest that never got off the ground. Someone back me up!!

I think that's probably about right. I remember the contest, but not if that's what it was for. It was very short.

Cool! Thanks for the compliment by the way. If someone mistakes it for a Queen song it means it worked :-)

I'll look it up on my harddisk and upload it.

I may be a Queen fan, but I'm not into that kind of stuff. Sorry man :-)
