I recently watched Queen's performance at LiveAid on Youtube. I forgot that they played this song that day.

I heard a similar comment during an interview with Eric Clapton one time. The interviewer was telling him how great he was and Clapton said something to the effect like there are better players out there, like Brian May. Pretty huge compliment.

Always been a big fan, but this song really isn't one of their better ones IMHO.

Wait. I think this is not the version I have on my pod. This one is more kick ass, with a real guitar break. WTF is this with truncated tracks for sale on iTunes? 

 
Yes for unknown reasons they turned the single version down with less guitar and more synth, I never understood that move. Album version is definitive, and check out the great extended version, too.

This song might not be as good as the usual Queen standards, but I am happy not to be hearing "You're My Best Friend" or the other overplayed classic rock staples right now.  Nice for some variety, even if it is sub-par.

An unusually vanilla song for Queen. It sounds like they are trying to be heavy, but running on empty while doing so. Although compared with their Hot Space album, this sounds like Motorhead.
Most of Queens best moments are found nestled between the hits on their albums released between 1973 and 1978.

 
Totally agree with the first period being the golden period of Queen. This song is OK, a bit empty in studio I agree, but certainly it gets all its meaning in the Live version (see LP Live Magic)

When I first heard Queen's music, I thought they were pompous, overblown British posers.  Didn't take long for me to slap myself and realize that they were, individually and collectively, a definite force of nature.  Freddie Mercury's amazing vocals and stage presence, Brian May's beautiful, sometimes bone-crunchingly powerful guitar work, John Deacon's understated-yet-inventive bass, and Roger Meadows-Taylor's solid, reliable drumming... They were pretty, but more importantly, they were TALENTED.

My favorite album is still the first one, and from that, I love "Liar" the best, although "Keep Yourself Alive" is a close second. Too many good songs to name. "Hammer to Fall" isn't one of my favorites, but I do love those power-chords and Mercury's snarling vocals.  Damn, I miss this band....
 

Miss you so much, Cynaera...

love this song...

Thanks Bill. I was sitting at my desk, and thought, 'I know that drumming..NOBODY else hits an open hi-hat at the same time he hits his snare...it must be Roger Taylor and QUEEN!' They were the first band I ever saw live...and will always be close to the heart!
