Songfacts®:

  • This Brian May composition was first recorded by Queen in 1983 for their The Works album, but it never made the final tracklisting. May's wife Anita Dobson laid down a version on her 1988 Talking of Love album, featuring her husband on guitar. Fans finally got to hear The Queen version of the ballad when it was included on their 2014 Queen Forever LP with newly recorded guitar parts and new backing vocals from May and Roger Taylor.
  • The song was remixed by William Orbit using Freddie Mercury's original vocals and released in 2014 to raise funds for Coca Cola RED campaign to help combat AIDS. May said. "It's been 23 years since the world lost our beloved Freddie Mercury. We've made extraordinary progress in the fight against AIDS in that time. But we cannot simply rest on the fact that the treatment is available. We must ensure that it is provided. Roger and I are proud to lend this rediscovered song to the RED campaign, in the hope that Freddie's powerful voice can inspire the world yet again."
