Take Love

Apparently this was recorded for The Cosmos Rocks. Anyone else kinda disappointed it didn't get released on the album? To me it's actually a pretty great song, almost certainly my favourite they did with Paul Rodgers.

I would love to have heard a full studio version. I was disappointed it wasn't on there...and will most likely never see the light of day...

I've never heard this song. By the way thanks very much for your message, much appreciated :-D
Hot Space is actually only my 6th favourite Queen album.
(But is a very underrated album in my opinion).

When I heard this song, I thought that if I had a newborn son and he died, it wouldn't be worse than this.

But I was wrong.
The Cosmos Rocks had yet to be released...

What a totally inappropriate and distasteful comparison.

Thanks for posting this, I don't know what to think of this song, or Paul Rodgers as a singer to be honest. I think Paul Rodgers has a generic "Rock" voice, which even though is very good, doesn't really suit the variety of Queen songs in my opinion. Also he looks very dull on stage, but then almost anyone would after Freddie. In fact in a way Paul Rodgers was a good contrast to Freddie as they were so different. I can see how much Brian and Roger enjoyed playing these gigs though, which was the main thing frankly.

Love the song. Glad I got to see it performed live. I stand by the idea that I think it would have been a better success had they released it as a live single as the N. American tour was going on. Probably would have done a ton better than the Cosmos Rocks did. By the time Cosmos was released, they had lost any momentum they might have had during the tour (coupled with that song not even being on the album).

Hopefully a studio version will be released on a re-release of "The Return Of The Champions"!
It's totally a classic!

A re-release of "the return of the champions" would be great. I have been drawing pictures of Freddie Mercury for years and i've got hundreds which ive only just started to scan and intend to upload online, would it be ok to upload some up here? If not I'm going to make my own site and upload them there, does anyone know a host to build a website? I found this one below, is it any good?

Of course off hand I'm not sure how it would fit onto two c.d.s that are already filled up...or are they? I can't remember off hand. They were certainly close. I think if they could squeeze onto the end of the second...that would be great...especially if there are a couple of other studio recordings done during that tour in 2005-2006 that are unreleased.
