Personally I think it'd be great if we had Brian's arrangement and Freddie's vocal

Now THAT would be amazing. It would make a fantastic song even better.
John hated Hot Space. Frederick's favourite singer was not Paul Rodgers. Roger did not compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I tell you the truth!!! But as question is difficult... I hope we get a clear answer.

P.S. I will meet him this summer!!


That'd be interesting. I'd be interested in hearing that


I think it is wise to ask admin, if I can give this answer.

You can't beat Freddie singing it. Brian's voice doesn't suit the song in my opinion. Freddie's voice had such power and clarity in it that his version is flawless. :P :lol:

Brian's version is far superior, very passionate. Vocally Freddie's version sounds like an unfinished demo, which I guess it was.

Personally, I love Brian's version. I like Freddie's too, but Brian's has so much more feeling and emotion to it. Plus, Brian's version always seems to give me the goosebumps when I listen to it. :)

Freddie was the better singer, but that doesn't always make a song better, I like Brian's version more, because it is "his" song.

This has always been a difficult question for me. Freddie's vocals to my ear are better, but before and during the 1st chorus, the instrumentation just sounds like a cheesy midi file from the late 90s. It sounds to me like Freddie puts just as much emotion into the song, albeit a completely different emotion. Brian obviously brings out the sad side of the song, while Freddie brings out the other, more "sick" side of the song. You get a different emotion and vibe from each song, although they're pretty much the same song.

Freddie's version, for me, just has a nostalgic feel to it. Because that's the version I first heard and listened to over and over again.

So I choose Freddie's

It's funny, I heard Brian's version first and that's the one I prefer. Is there anyone here who heard one version before the other that prefers the one they heard first? Because I'm guessing this is the deciding factor.

I guess it's kinda like hearing a great song for the first time, and then hearing someone remake it. You're probably going to prefer the original.

Hm now that you mention it, I heard Brian's version first too and that's the one I prefer. I wonder if subliminally that version sounds like the "right" version since it is the first one I listened to.

Interesting question.

With maybe a real string quartet added instead of the (albeit quite good, but nonetheless inexplicable) synth quartet? ;)
