Living On My Own:Would love to hear a mix with Queen
Hi, Queen Matt!
How are you?
I love this song, especially Julian Raymond Mix. I'd like to listen to the following:
1) Mr. Bad Guy! (pretty much in the vein of Brian Malouf Mix)
2) In My Defence
3) Your Kind of Lover (this one would be fun to listen to with Queen) :-))) Some guitar work by Brian there interacting with the piano - it'd be nice.
4) Let's Turn it On (I love both the song and Freddie's vocals on this one) - they could do it "staying power" style - the live version, I mean - giving it a more rock feeling.
6) Fooling Around
I love Freddie's solo work, so...I'm a bit biased here. I don't like the solo stuff by Brian and Roger, though I have to be fair and say that I didn't listen to them doing the songs live, and that may change the whole thing for me. I just have to listen to some gigs that have been recently shared here!
I really don't remember a bad song on Freddie's albums.
On the other hand Brian's albums got no soul on them (at least that's my impression).
It's all opinions, I do tend to agree with you though. Brians stuff has lots of great guitar and drums, but the songs, like you said have no soul, forgettable is the word. Roger is just plain boring to me. Freddie's stuff is a mixed bag, some great, some poor. The songs that could have been great with the queen treatment are Mr. bad guy, love me like there's no tomorrow, even the great pretender, which is one of my favorite freddie performances ever. also, Man made paradise. Brians ressurrection and the wilderness. Roger's nations of haircutts could have been a classic Queen song.
