Check out our sounds section for the new collaboration between Stuart and Freddie Mercury. “Nobody Understands Me” came about as a result of a re-working of a 1984 demo by the singer in Munich during the sessions for his Mr. Bad Guy Album. The demo of course has been transformed into a fresh, new track and captures Freddie on top form, weaving his vocal around Stuart’s ethereal guitar / piano / strings arrangement.
Nobody Understands Me is now available for download (check out the Sounds section) and we would love to hear your feedback through the Contact section of our site."
I´ve find this on the webside...great one! Thanks for this great Link!!!!
This is a paste from some demo of LOVE ME LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW plus sample from MADE IN HEAVEN (Freddie's Version) taken from the Freddie Mercury Box Set with a new arrangements! I don't know if this was a real collaboration...
I think the news section in stuartleathem.com explains exactly what the track is. It makes no bones about the fact that it's a re-working of a 1984 demo. Still ends up sounding very different to the original.
just listened to the song....
not bad. not great, but then again, wasn't a fan of freddies mr bad guy.. sorry. love the guy to bits, but just not my cup of tea that album. though it does have some brilliant songs, i just hate stuff like living on my own..
Hey wait a minute.
I just listened to this song, Fred's bits are great - is it possible to find this track WITHOUT all the crap that this jerk has thrown on top? That guitar doesn't even sound real. I want a turn.
Hmmm... where is this from anyway, is it some unfinished thing given a new name? I don't care anyway - if this guy is allowed to edit it and put stuff on it, so am I. I want a turn!
The original vocal can be found in the FM box set. It has Freddie mostly scat singing with the odd cohesive sentence here and there.
This new version seems to cut bits out of the original but I must admit I like it............ took me a few listens though.
I'd hardly start calling the composer a jerk for trying to create something out of a dis-used vocal.............I've certainly heard worse that's for sure!
No, I didn't call him a jerk because he's putting new stuff to old music! I commend him, I want to do the same!
No I called him a jerk because this sucks. The guitar sounds fake, the 'ethereal arrangement' doesn't go anywhere (well it does - it goes to hell, in a handbasket) it's just sad to hear Freddie's voice with that crap!
Okay I'll put my hands up, I am a very big fan of Stuart Leathem (the composer). I have all his records and they are most definately an acquired taste! To be honest I was unsure what to expect when he decided to do something with a Freddie Mercury vocal but I guess what you end up with is a mix of two very different styles.
Leathem would never claim to be a songwriter, not that I'm aware of anyway, but he has stated many times that he is a huge admirer of Queen and I guess this was a bit of indulgence.
It's intersting to hear a spectrum of opinion on this track. I'll get in touch with him through his site if I can and see if I can get any feedback from him. Seems to be simple enough to do.............
Definitely sounds like an out take from the Mr Bad Guy sessions to me. Has a feel of Love Me Like There's No Tommorow to it and sounds spooky all right!
Also, sounds like Widerness from Brian. Was he listening to this at the time?
Anyway, another "demo" to my collection.
lol it's a ,,remix'' of love me like there's no tomorrow demo. it's on freddie mercury box. someone has just took out songs most important part: love me like there's no tomorrow, and there you go you have a new song... what a crap
I have to agree, this is truly dreadful. Apart from the dodgy mixing and instrumentation (not disputing the creator's skill, just how it was used in this case), Freddie's vocal is not up to par either. Some out-takes should remain on the cutting room floor. I wish I hadn't heard this!
Some of his vocals are pretty but yes it is understandable why they weren't released in this case.
I've got to get around to buying the CD that has those vocals on 'em, so I can make a fist of doing this properly.
