That got me thinking about the really strong symbolism in the video. The cat could be one of Freddie's, the robot could actually be Freddie...and there's even a moment in the video when the camera pans up to the sky and to heaven. Then of course there's the robot's hand moving at the end...a fabulous video, their best ever.

I'm really, really enthused by this song and it's not a song that really did much for me...but it's simply awesome with Freddie on vocals. Let Me In Your Heart again was Freddie, but it did nothing for me, this is different, it's special.

FFS, please don't say that: I've only just stopped weeping over the end of the video...I don't need to think of Freddie as well. :P

Actually, just read a short piece from the men who made the video. To sum up they stated that the cat was based on Brian's childhood cat (I think he gave them some photos) - which would make sense.

It makes one wonder just what they could do if they put some serious dosh down: I think this video could look fantastic if animated really well - it could pack quite a punch.

The Queen version of 'I Dream of Christmas'...now *that* needs a video. And possibly to exist in the first place.

It's on the Official NOTW40 website. I have to say if the time and effort that has gone into this and the All Dead All Dead video was replicated in the contents of the box set we'd all be happy!!
