I believe there is an insistence that any Queen song on a compilation is always track one on disc one. Pretty sure this was discussed on one of the previous boards in the dim and distant past.

Think my favourite 12" by Queen, is Scandal, but I think I'm probably one of the few that actually likes the song.

Add me to the list of people who like “Scandal”. Yes, it’s very obviously a product of the 80s, but so am I.

This thread’s just reminding me that we still don’t have all the 12” mixes on CD, be it in a compilation of otherwise.

The thread ordering’s playing up again; no idea why my reply was stuck two posts above where it should’ve been.

I like 'scandal' too, surprised it performed poorly as a single. I think it contains one of Brian's best 80s guitar solos. The remix is good too- pity the CD single commands pretty high prices now, I'm always on the look out for cheap copy just for that remix

It's a bonus track on the 1992 Hollywood Records The Miracle CD album, if you can get hold of that.

One reason it probably didn't do so well as a single could be because it was the fourth single released off the album, and didn't get a lot of airplay.

It has been suggested.

I'd love the 12" mixes of Back Chat, Staying Power, Keep Passing The Open Windows, One Year Of Love, You Don't Fool Me (David Richards Late Mix), and Under Pressure (Club 2000 mix) all grouped together, with the previously released 12" Collection.

We've got to go back, Marty.
Back where, Doc?
Back to the future!

As luck would have it I picked one up on ebay a few days ago for £5.

Count me in-. Scandal is awesome and I also like the video.
