  • Written by Queen bass player John Deacon, this is a fan favorite that was never a hit. The music video was filmed in drummer Roger Taylor's garden in Surrey, England in 1978. The ground was covered in snow and ice, and the band was noticeably uncomfortable. Brian May remarks in the making of video, "looking back, it couldn't be done there - you couldn't do that!" During the shoot, the ice and snow on the ground complicated matter, and Freddie Mercury consumed more alcohol than he probably should have. >>

  • Scott from UsaHe spends his evenings alone in his hotel room he be leaving soon suicide?
  • Mike from MaI agree this song is very underrated, but I feel that here in the U.S. unless you're a Queen fan, most people only remember them for Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are The Champions, We Will Rock You and Another One Bites the Dust. This song is another one of Queen's gems and they had so many great songs. I love this song. Queen is my favorite band and I totally agree Freddie was a brilliant man and its amazing to see that even now, twenty four years after his death, he still tops nearly every list I've seen as the best front man in rock. The man was truly phenomenal and there will never be another one like him. Amazing voice and he is truly missed. This song rocks!!!
  • Brent from Denair, CaAwesome Queen song and both commentors are correct.....very underrated! Freddie was absolutely brilliant and truly not appreciated until post-death. The band's music is timeless and will forever be their legacy.
