Correct! Yes We Can by Artists United For Nature.
It was a small hit in Germany in 1989 (reaching no. 15), after having been performed in a TV show by most of the cast, including Brian May.

The following Queen songs have something in common that has nothing to do with Queen.

The Show Must Go On
You're My Best Friend
A Winter's Tale
Love of My Life
Delilah.
God Save The Queen.

What is the connection?

They’re all the names of non-Queen songs.

The Show Must Go On - Pink Floyd
You’re My Best Friend - Don Williams
A Winter’s Tale - David Essex
Love Of My Life - Everly Brothers (plus a few other options)
Delilah - Tom Jones
God Save The Queen - Sex Pistols

Close enough. They have all been titles of UK hits for other artists.TSMSGO being Leo Sayer and LOML being the Dooleys. Otherwise spot on.

Here's one that came to me the other day, the titles of two Bond films, where the two screenplays were based on the same Ian Fleming book, and featured the same actor playing Bond, in both movies?
