|hey, i know, that the songs on the album are mostly recorded earlyer as let me live, made in heaven and so, but does anyone know which songs did they recorded in 1991 with A Winters tale and Mother Love, was there any other song or only these two? thanks :)
|They would have had to record all of the Freddie singing songs before or in '91 because that was the year he died :(
I think it's a Beautiful Day was recorded in 1991.
|yes i know when did he died :) but like a winters tale is recorded few weeks before his death, same was with mother love and i just thought that when were other songs, that we hear on the album recorded.

|You Don't Fool Me came from the 90s too.
|hey serry, i have heard that the song was writen much more earlyer but freddie sang it in 90s ? :)
oh and one question more, too much love will kill you has many demos, but did freddie sang the full album version in 91 or was it allready complete in 88/89? :) thanks

Certainly Freddie's vocals or from the 1990s.
Freddie sang TMLWKY during the Miracle sessions, so that must have been 1988/1989.
|The only post-innuendo songs on MIH are "Mother Love" "A Winters Tale" and "You Dont Fool Me"
I got this off of wikipedia, and you can tell his vocals were from 1991.

|It's a Beautiful day is actually from sessions of 1979/80. And certainly Freddie's voice sound very much like this era.
|I really want the version if its a beautiful day played at the Q+PR tour.
|Its a Beautiful Day its from the earlier 80's, some people says its from 1983
and YDFM its from the 90's...
|Too Much Love Will Kill You was recorded in Spring of 1988.
Info about the idea of YDFM came from Hot Space sessions came from someone who incorrectly read the GH3 sleeve.
|Let Me Live was recorded in 1983 originally in 1983...A Winter's Tale and You Don't fool Me were recorded in early '91...Mother Love was recorded in Sept.'91, A Beautiful Day in '80, Heaven For Everyone in '87 or '88, My life Has Been Saved was in '88 or '89, and the rest are Freddie songs from Mr. Bad Guy, that Queen just re-worked.

|What was Peter Freestone reffering to on the Kind Of Magic show when he said Freddie was creating a month before he died?

|No, Mother Love was Freddies last ever vocal, hence why Brian had to finish the song.
|Supposedly Too Much Love Will Kill You was supposed to be on "The Miracle", but Freddie said the track was too weak...correct me if I'm wrong...
|According to David Richards, Fred's last vocal recording was Winter's Tale's last verse, but there was nobody else in the studio so I personally think that's why Brian thought 'Mother Love' had been the last one: he missed the post-ML sessions.
'Too Much Love' wasn't considered weak. On the contrary, Freddie loved it. The reason they couldn't release it in 'Miracle' was simply due to somple problems with the publishing rights (since the lyrics aren't Brian's).
'You Don't Fool Me' "harks-back" to the 'Hot Space' era but it's from 1991, in the same way that we can say 'Seaside Rendezvous' "harks-back" to the 1920s but it doesn't mean Freddie wrote it two decades before he was born.

|I think it's a beautiful day was recorded for the game sessions but was never used. That's what I've heard. Let me live. Interesting how the vocals of brian and Roger came to be in that song, along with freddie. I always thought that Fred's vocals were recorded, but he had died, so Bri and Rog filled the song in. Same with mother love, with bri. On the songs made in heaven and I was born to love you, it sounds like they just added different music to Fred's vocals from the mr. bad guy album. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Hope I helped and brought up some interesting topics to these songs.
|It's A Beautiful Day - Fred's piano and vocals come from 1980 sessions at Munich. During 1993-1995 Brian, Roger and John added the other instruments, the oboe bit was Deacon's idea.
Made In Heaven - Fred's piano comes from 31st May 1984 at Munich. Interestingly, the Mr Bad Guy album was going to be titled Made In Heaven, and when it was released both Roger and John commented how they loved the song. After Mercury died Brian took the song under his wing, rescued Fred's piano and vocals, and added the guitar and new mixing at Allerton Hill. Then David Richards made a new mix and repaired some mistakes in Metropolis Studios in London and finally the four of them (Roger, John, David and Brian) transformed it into a Queen track.
Let Me Live - Fred's piano and vocals come from 1983 at Record Plant in LA. The rest is probably from post-'92 additional sessions. The organ is actually a synth.
Mother Love - Brian and Freddie wrote the song after they'd finished Innuendo. Brian used a Parker Fly that was lying around in the studio in Switzerland. This song could be Fred's last keyboard playing as well.
My Life Has Been Saved - John wrote it during Miracle sessions, and David Richards helped him putting together the demo and keyboards. When Freddie heard it, he loved it and did the vocal parts. Keyboard parts had been mostly programmed, the only change between Miracle and MIH versions were that they run the midis in new, more modern synths and digital pianos. Bass, drums and guitars were re-recorded as well.
Heaven For Everyone - Originally recorded by Roger for 'Shove It' in Montreux in 1986. David Richards helped in the arrangement, transposing each consecutive line in order to create a more rising up effect instead of Roger's original linear demo. Once Freddie came to visit and in order to show the band (Cross) how to sing it, he ended up recording the actual lead vocal. Queen's version is a re-work of the entire track, using Fred's vocals again.
I Was Born To Love You - Freddie wrote it at the piano he'd got in New York. The original version was a slow ballad as some of those brilliant piano things he used to do before. The album version was recorded on 25th May 1984 in Munich. Brian reconstructed the track between 1993 and 1995, using Fred's piano, vocals and synths and adding guitars, changing some tempo and keys and making Fred's parts correspond with that. Roger and John recorded drums and bass, which were mixed by David Richards.
Too Much Love Will Kill You - Brian recorded it during Miracle sessions, using analogue machines instead of digital. Freddie recorded it too, since he liked the song a lot, but they couldn't release it because of some legal rows with the people representing Frank's and Elizabeth's publishing rights (remember that this song's beautiful lyrics are NOT Brian's); after Mercury died, they reconstructed it, Brian updating some of the digital piano bits and Roger and John adding the rhythm section.
You Don't Fool Me - Roger's and Freddie's composition from the post-Innuendo sessions. The song was very much unfinished and they'd only got the bare bones, but eventually Roger and John rescued them and put some music, and showed it to Brian, who liked it profoundly and added the guitar solo. David Richards again was the mixing hero, making the entire process possible.
A Winter's Tale - Freddie wrote it in Switzerland and recorded the keyboards and vocals. According to David Richards, his very last vocal session (a couple of weeks before dying) was completing the last verse, after which he went back to London. I personally believe that since that last session was only Freddie and David and Brian wasn't present, May thought (and still thinks) Fred's last vocal had been the one he did the penultimate sessions (Mother Love's bridge).
|I thought You Don't Fool Me was a Hot Space reject? I guess you do learn something new everyday.

|Who was it that said AWT was recorded in late 1990, even completed, then?
|nice info about MIH. Thank you. I have a 89 version of my life has been saved. I like it. And Roger as vocal on Heaven for Evryone 88 version. Roger hehe. I like his voice.
|structure and winter with the tale began to shoot from January 1991 to February 1991 and last sang the vocals to six weeks before death, and two weeks prior to death long ago at home and lay in bed
is the last officially recorded mother love from mid summer 1991 and after November 7, 1991
and you dont fool me, he began shooting the same time as Mother Love
|Once again, I would reallllly love to hear Too Much Love Will Kill You as it was originally going to appear on The Miracle (with whatever very 'slight' differences there may be between the 2 different versions).
Is it available to hear anywhere??
|I have to say i prefer Freddies own version of I Was born to love you
|a veryvery interesting discussion
